The Danish Refugee Council assists refugees and internally displaced persons across the globe: we provide emergency aid, fight for their rights, and strengthen their opportunity for a brighter future. We work in conflict-affected areas, along the displacement routes, and in the countries where refugees settle. In cooperation with local communities, we strive for responsible and sustainable solutions. We work toward successful integration and – whenever possible – for the fulfillment of the wish to return home.
The Danish Refugee Council was founded in Denmark in 1956 and has since grown to become an international humanitarian organization with more than 7,000 staff and 8,000 volunteers. Based in Copenhagen (Denmark) and present in forty countries, the Danish Refugee Council is a non-profit-making, politically independent, non-governmental and non-denominational relief organization.
Our vision is a dignified life for all displaced. All our efforts are based on our value compass: humanity, respect, independence and neutrality, participation, and honesty and transparency.
DRC has been operating in Greece since November 2015, providing support to the Greek Ministry of Migration Policy in ensuring dignified reception conditions for refugees and migrants arriving on Lesvos island. In March 2016, DRC expanded its operations in Athens, in response to the changing context and the build-up of refugee population on mainland Greece.
Part of DRC’s response on mainland Greece is the provision of a non-formal education and other integration activities in the refugee accommodation sites and in urban locations. Both qualitative and quantitative data is generated through these activities, to be used for programming and reporting requirements. Accordingly, the growing information management, data analysis, learning and reporting needs for the integration programme necessitate support from a specialist skilled in research, data analysis and reporting. The Monitoring, Evaluation and Learning (MEL) Assistant will be based in the Country Office in Athens. Under supervision of the MEAL Manager and in close coordination with other members of the Programme Technical Unit, the MEL Assistant will support in the systematic monitoring of projects at country level.
Please note that this position is pending funding approval.
