Internship/volunteer position for DMEL team

Intern or Volunteer -  Design, Monitoring, Evaluation and Learning (DMEL)

Background

The fundamental principle of Raks Thai Foundation’s work has been engaging targeted communities or populations to build local capacity in responding to developmental or vulnerability issues that they are facing. Raks Thai Foundation has an origin of pioneering and testing new paths of civil society engagement in the development sector, with all work custom-designed on a project-by-project basis through comprehensive situation and problem analyses, and the application of appropriate and innovative evidence-based interventions.  In most cases Raks Thai project staff are qualified persons selected from the regions where the community programs are located. This allows Raks Thai to implement socially acceptable, locally-driven projects not limited by cultural or language barriers.

Raks Thai has focused on five programmatic areas that include environment and natural resources (also including community adaptation to climate change), health (focusing on selected communicable diseases and reproductive health), livelihood (with a strong emphasis on women’s economic empowerment), children and youth (leadership and occupation skills, fighting forms of violence), and humanitarian response.

The Design, Monitoring, Evaluation and Learning (DMEL) team is an independent team that is outside of direct project management. The role of the DMEL team is to provide technical advice to project leads and ensure that accurate evidence is collected and recorded for decision making and reporting purposes. Additionally, the DMEL team is leading the organization-wide capacity building for DMEL activities with an emphasis on cross-programme learning.
