Bibliothèques Sans Frontières recruits 01 Head of Mission in Bangladesh

Description BIBLIOTHEQUES SANS FRONTIERES/ LIBRARIES WITHOUT BORDERSLibraries Without Borders (BSF) is a global NGO working to provide quality access to information and education to the most vulnerable populations. Since 2007, BSF has been bringing knowledge to those who are deprived of it. To achieve this, we work alongside field actors to create strategies for the dissemination of knowledge.

BSF has partnered with hundreds of local organizations worldwide to establish safe spaces where affected populations can actively engage in activities, promoting social cohesion, peace-building, and individual and collective healing in critical conditions such as displacement, conflict and post-conflict or after a natural disaster.

A 3 pillar approach:

  • INNOVATIVE TOOLS: To reduce barriers in access to information & education
  • TAILOR-MADE CONTENT: To respond to the identified needs of the targeted populations
  • MEDIATION & TRAINING: To maximise impact of the programs and tools

The Ideas box, ultra-portable multimedia center and the Ideas Cub, a 100% autonomous server for collective and intensive use, have have been developed by BSF to provide educational and cultural resources to vulnerable groups around the globe. Bibliothèques Sans Frontières offers a catalog of open access content with over 30,000 resources available in 24 languages.

PROGRAMME IN BANGLADESH

Bangladesh has been on the front line of the Rohingya crisis for over 30 years. Since the events of the 25th of August 2017, more than 671,000 Rohingyas have crossed the border between Myanmar and Bangladesh. Today, there are nearly 1 million refugees in the country. The sudden increase in the number of Rohingya arrivals has stretched the capacity of humanitarian organizations operating in Bangladesh. These newcomers are hosted in refugee camps but also in overcrowded makeshift camps, in schools, community centers, religious buildings.

Since 2018, BSF has been conducting interventions aiming at supporting access to education, to information and to strengthen protection of the district’s communities in partnership with INGOs and UN agencies.

Ideas boxes have thus been deployed in partnership with IOM and with INGO partners to enhance the resilience of the Rohingya refugees and host communities around the following thematic:

  • Access to information, education, learning
  • Individual and Collective Expression
  • Social interaction
  • Learning skills and knowledge transfer mechanism

In 2020, BSF aims at providing additional support to partners to reach a more efficient use of the Ideas Box and Ideas Cube, as well as a deeper rooting of the activities and thus a stronger autonomy of the community.  Exploring potential synergies with new partners will also be a key priority to contribute to providing better access to information and education to additional beneficiaries.

POSITION OBJECTIVE

To lead our operations in Bangladesh, BSF is seeking a dynamic and result-oriented Head of Mission who will play an essential and strategic role within our team to support the development of the mission’s operational strategy, to ensure high-quality program implementation and to strengthen BSF’s program portfolio in country.
