Organization : RET International
Closing date: 22 Jan 2018
Experience : 5 – 9 ans

Project Coordinator

Start date: 1st February 2018, or to be agreed upon.
The Organisation
RET International is an independent, impartial, non-partisan humanitarian organisation headquartered in Geneva, Switzerland. Founded in 2000 by Mrs Sadako Ogata (then United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees), RET International is committed to working in emergencies and fragile environments around the world to ensure the protection and resilience of vulnerable young people through education.

Since inception, RET International has worked in 29 countries affected by crises and fragile environments. This extensive presence in the field has positively impacted the lives of over 1.2 million learners, 51% of which are women, paving the way to more peaceful and stable communities by empowering a generation of young people to become actors of positive social change. In all, RET International has reached nearly 6 million indirect beneficiaries.

While RET has staff from approximately 40 countries, nearly all are local. That is to say almost 100% of the staff in each country of operations are citizens of that country or eventually of neighbouring countries, with only very few expats operating regionally or from headquarters. RET connects local experience with global expertise. Today, we are a team of approximately 1200 members working throughout the world.
