INDIVIDUAL CONSULTANT TO PROVIDE TECHNICAL SUPPORT TO REVIEW AND UPDATE THE SCHOOL HEALTH AND NUTRITION (SHN) MANUAL FOR TEACHERS

Save the Children is the leading global independent organisation for children founded in 1919 and working around the world to give children a healthy start in life, the opportunity to learn and protection from harm. In Viet Nam, we have been working since 1990 and have made efforts to protect and support the most vulnerable children to achieve their rights to survival, education, protection, healthy environment and development. We focus on the most deprived and most marginalized children who have been left behind.

Save the Children has been implementing a School Health and Nutrition (SHN) project funded by Mars Wrigley Foundation since 2011 in collaboration with MOET, MOH and Department of Education and Training of Ha Dong district, Hai Phong city, Ho Chi Minh city, and Tien Giang province. The project has been working with 84 schools and has reached more than 90,000 children with many school-based activities such as communication events, extra classes, community meetings with parents to share about school health and nutrition care, including oral health care, as well as renovating latrines and hand washing areas to improve the learning environment at select schools. 

The project will continue until March 2022 and includes implementation of a comprehensive school package to improve health and nutrition status among students. The two main objectives of the project include: 1) Age-appropriate personal hygiene practices of students in project schools are improved, with a focus on oral health care, handwashing, health and nutrition; and 2) The project model is scaled up to non-project schools, at least in project provinces.
