The Volunteer’s Role

The Gender Equality Network (GEN) is diverse and inclusive network of more than 100 civil society organizations, national and international NGOs and Technical Resource Persons working to bring about gender equality and the fulfilment of women's rights in Myanmar. While they are experts in women’s rights and gender equality, they are struggling to implement strong systems to monitor and evaluate the effectiveness and impact of their work.

This is where you come in! You will work closely with the current monitoring and evaluation coordinator to review the existing information, to strengthen staff skill, to provide technical support to set up systems where all the members can evidence the value of being involved in the network.
