Information Management Internship

United Nations Children's Fund

Kathmandu, Nepal

Experience: 5 to 10 Years

Skill Required: IT and ICT

UNICEF works in some of the world’s toughest places, to reach the world’s most disadvantaged children. To save their lives. To defend their rights. To help them fulfill their potential. 

Background and Rationale:

UNICEF’s mission is to advocate for the protection of children’s rights, to help meet their basic needs and to expand their opportunities to reach their full potential. Gender equality is essential to realising UNICEF’s mandate, identified as one of the most fundamental challenges to sustainable development1 and a significant detractor from fulfilling UNICEF’s mission and mandate. UNICEF’s new Strategic Plan (SP) 2022-2025 continues to emphasise gender equality and the empowerment of girls and women as a guiding principle. It incorporates a new approach to transforming structural barriers and gender norms that are the underlying drivers of gender inequality. UNICEF’s new Gender Action Plan III (GAP), 2022-2025 emphasises a transformative gender approach to programming in all areas of UNICEF’s work across the humanitarian and development nexus. By adopting its most progressive and forward-looking SP, Gender Policy, and Gender Action Plan to date, UNICEF is committed to advancing bold, transformative change toward a more gender equal world. These plans recognise that to achieve success, gender must be integrated into all of UNICEF’s programmatic work, by undertaking new, targeted and transformative actions for adolescent girls. UNICEF is committed  to placing the rights, well-being and leadership of adolescent girls at the very core of what we do, with actions that promote girls’ health, nutrition, learning and skills, as well as protection from violence, exploitation, abuse and harmful practices across the life course. 

The gender priorities for the 2022-2025 programming cycle for the South Asia Region (ROSA) have been identified through an in-depth gender analysis of the context-specific, cross-cutting gender concerns across the eight countries in the region. Three key gender priorities are identified as strategic foci for ROSA to address the root causes and drivers of gender inequality, setbacks and challenges exacerbated by the Covid-19 pandemic (discussed above), and the impact of humanitarian emergencies, including climate change impacts, natural disasters, political and economic crises. These three strategic foci, which are aligned with UNICEF’s overall SP and GAP III programmatic acceleration areas and are reflected in the regional gender theory of change are:

  • Health Nutrition and WASH; 
  • Learning and Skills; and 
  • Protection from all Harmful practices and Gender Based Violence. 


The overall purpose of this internship is to support the Gender section in information and knowledge management (including virtual resources), database construction and utilization, and standardization of communication products.
