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.
Across 190 countries and territories, we work for every child, everywhere, every day, to build a better world for everyone.
And we never give up.
For every child, a fair chance
UNICEF has been an active partner of the Government of the Philippines and civil society in realizing the rights of every Filipino child, in line with priorities to achieve the Millennium Development Goals. UNICEF efforts have been focused on the most vulnerable regions identified by the Government of the Philippines Development Plan, particularly in the regions of Visayas and Mindanao. To ensure that interventions are sustainable and scaled up, UNICEF will support primarily local government units (LGUs) as the main instruments of delivering services and building systems. The level of engagement with government institutions will take into account capacities, economies of scale and sector issues.
It has a field office in Cotabato City, the second largest city in Mindanao, southern Philippines, with some 300,000 population. The city is the regional administrative centre of the Autonomous Region of Muslim Mindanao and over 80 percent of the population is Muslim. Mindanao is both conflict-affected and prone to frequent earthquakes and typhoon storms.

UNICEF will be implementing a project that aims to demonstrate the use of leveraging public funds with market-based financing in delivering climate resilient sanitation facilities to 150 vulnerable families in the province of Samar. Implementing the project - “Household Sanitation using Blended Financing with Output-based Aid” in the province of Samar will contribute to setting up the systems for the province to adopt the modality, and also aid in national policy development, establishing evidence on the effectiveness and efficiency of such financing modality, and documenting good practices for other local governments to emulate.
Currently, the Provincial Engineering Office has prepared the technical drawings and bill of materials for the pour flush toilet with two-chamber septic tank and leach pit. The toilets have been designed to be climate resilient, and where necessary, appropriate for use by people with disabilities. Building resilient structures is manifested not only in the design but also in the construction practices. As such, UNICEF is seeking the services of a training consultant with a professional background as an Architect / Civil Engineer and has experience in construction practices for typhoon / flood - resilient structures.
