Let's Play Fair Program Coordinator

Kids Play International

About the organization

Kids Play International leverages the power of sport and the Olympic values in a safe space so girls and boys can positively challenge and shift harmful gender, social and cultural norms. Sport has been proven to provide a unique environment where harmful norms can be renegotiated giving girls the same opportunities as boys to reach their full potential. Genocide education and prevention goes hand in hand with gender equity as the assumptions and perceptions a society holds regarding the roles and responsibilities of each gender effect their power dynamics in and out of conflict.

Kids Play International is seeking a Cambodia Field Based Let’s Play Fair Program Coordinator (LPF PC) who recognizes and understands how sport can promote gender equity and create social change. This is also someone who is excited and inspired to work in a rural village helping to empower both girls and boys through sport to challenge harmful gender stereotypes which can create a more equitable society.
