Description

Description

UNHCR Rwanda will adopt strategies to engage youth in problem-solving and peace building through involving them in decision making and structure activity to enhance their protection and well-being. The idea is to build on the existing opportunities, looking at how to better support the current youth programs. The operation in Rwanda is very keen in strengthening the adoption of community-based approach through meaningful engagement of youth in all camps and urban areas. This will be done through the establishment of forums for continued dialogue to ensure that youth’s views, ideas and frustrations are listened to and are taken into consideration while designing program interventions. Youth will be assisted to organize activities themselves in a structured manner. Youths will agree on a set of priority activities that can be adopted, under their own leadership and overall supervision of UNHCR and its partners. Further consultations on enhancing peaceful co-existence with the host community will be carried with guidance and support of the youth advisor at Kigali level.

 

The limited education opportunities beyond basic education, leave the vast majority of refugee youth at risk of frustration, which often lead to negative behavior such as violence and alcohol and drug abuse. The project being recently introduced aims at giving opportunities for youth to establish network, learn new skills, serve their community and make the best use of their time and energy for their own and community interest

Benefits

Benefits

A UN Volunteer receives a Volunteer Living Allowance (VLA) which is composed of the Monthly Living Allowance (MLA) and a Family Allowance (FA) for those with dependents (maximum three).

 

The Volunteer Living Allowance (VLA) is paid at the end of each month to cover housing, utilities, transportation, communications and other basic needs. The VLA can be computed by applying the Post-Adjustment Multiplier (PAM) to the VLA base rate of US$ 1,651. The VLA base rate is a global rate across the world, while the PAM is duty station/country-specific and fluctuates on a monthly basis according to the cost of living. This method ensures that international UN Volunteers have comparable purchasing power at all duty stations irrespective of varying costs of living. The PAM is established by the International Civil Service Commission (ICSC) and is published at the beginning of every month on the ICSC website http://icsc.un.org.
