The Gender Coordinator will serve as a member of the GenEq Committee and act as the liaison between the committee and PC/Liberia staff. If applicable, the Gender Coordinator will attend all local and international meetings and/or conventions for GenEq as invited by the MOE or other partners. By the end of the assignment, the Response Volunteer will make a final report including all materials created during service (visual aids, charts, progress reports to other partners, etc.) and submit it to the Director of Programming and Training and the Gender POC.
