TITLE:  Project Officer - Drowning Prevention

TEAM/PROGRAMME: Drowning Prevention               LOCATION:  Phang Nga

CONTRACT LENGTH:  1 Year

ROLE PURPOSE:  

Drowning is the most common cause of death among children in Thailand. According to Thailand’s Department of Disease Control, 1,243 children under 15 die from drowning each year.  Water is an essential feature of Thailand’s geography and climate, and these water sources are responsible for drowning deaths, particularly children. Open waters, rivers, ponds, ditches, and quarries are in abundance in both rural and urban areas and fill with water during the rainy season. Closed vessels such as large buckets and troughs are used for water storage, cooking, and feeding livestock. Additionally, Thailand is prone to natural disasters including floods, tropical storms, typhoons, and tsunamis.

While drowning is pervasive across Thailand, children are at a heightened risk of drowning in rural areas, especially around natural water sources. Further compounding the problem is that two out of every three children under the age of 15 (approximately 11 million children) do not know how to swim. In addition, parents, caregivers, and communities are unaware of the high rate of child drowning and have limited, if any knowledge of drowning prevention.

The project officer will be responsible for supporting the project implementation, research, monitoring and evaluation in the field. The project officer will coordinate project activities at the field level in coordination with project partners, co-lead on the parent training program, and closely support the water safety awareness campaign. The project officer will also be responsible for data collection and consolidating data for learning and reporting purposes, and for administrative and finance support to the project coordinator and partners.
