Special Needs teacher

Arab World / Education / 1-11 months, 12-23 months, 2+ years / Job ID: 1593

In September 2017 the Centre received funding to begin a Special Education Program in the Kindergarten. We decided to name our program in honor of a former student who was a pioneer in our efforts in working with special needs children. We have served eight children by providing them with basic education from a qualified special education teacher and assistant. Two of these children have now graduated and been able to start attending public school. Before enrolling in this program, all the beneficiary children were out of school.

These children (ages 4-6) receive plenty of individual attention from their teachers, which allows them to thrive in their learning environment. They are provided with a healthy breakfast each day, receive behavioral support, follow an exercise routine, and learn about hygienic practices, such as how to brush their teeth. We plan on incorporating some educational toys and games to give the children more of a Montessori approach at learning. We also plan to assist each child in keeping a notebook which will help them and their parents to track and support their learning progress. The Special Needs Team also wants to place more of a focus on communicating with parents and having frequent meetings with them so that they will understand better how to help their children at home. We welcome people who can train our teachers in further Special Needs Education.

Obstetrician

South Asia / Medical / Health / 1-11 months, 12-23 months, 2+ years / Job ID: 300

This rural 150-bed hospital does nearly 4000 deliveries each year. The hospital has an active community health program and there are opportunities to be involved in research as well as clinical obstetrics. It is an integrated rural health and development program with extensive community work, and there are strong links between the community antenatal clinics and the hospital.

An obstetrician is urgently needed for the hospital after the departure of a long-term senior obstetrician. The post includes a significant training component as national junior doctors are part of the team and come expecting postgraduate training. The hospital is nationally known for its training of nurse-midwives and community midwives as well as doctors. The existing obstetric team is about 50 per cent national and 50 per cent international doctors.

A capacity-building attitude will be a daily necessity (sometimes it is easier to do it yourself than teach someone else), but the hospital is in a unique position for holistic ministry at a number of levels.
