Save the Children Indonesia: Waliku Indonesia Management Consultant

Waliku Indonesia Management Consultant


Waliku is an innovation project of Save the Children implemented on a pilot scale in Sumba Barat, Indonesia, since 2018. Waliku includes a suite of digital tools and an implementation system to ensure teachers and other student caretakers recognize and address gaps in student attendance and well-being in a timely manner. It facilitates communication and coordination between children’s families and their schools as well as between schools and local stakeholders in student wellbeing, including district officials and child health and welfare services. Waliku assists communities to meet children’s right to education, well-being and achieving their fullest potential.

After two years of pilot, Waliku is transitioning its operating model to become a Save the Children social venture. We are transforming from a project that relies on donor funding to an enterprise with governments, NGOs, institutions and corporations as customers for the Waliku solution and meeting our collective priority for children’s wellbeing.

COVID-19-related school closures have caused significant education disruption, particularly for those already-marginalized students. As schools reopen, there is a need for digitized systems that allow schools to recognize and support families whose children are experiencing critical absences and link effectively with other service providers in the community. Waliku is therefore optimizing and scaling its solution to meet this need, initially in Sumba Barat, followed by other locations within Indonesia and elsewhere.

Through this paradigm shift in Waliku’s operating model, and onto optimizing and scaling our solution, we seek an Indonesian team lead with relevant experience to engage with governments, NGOs and private entities our solution for different customer segments, while managing a field team/s to ensure the delivery of a high-quality solution. S/he will help define Waliku’s product and services for different customer segments and with field team/s develop and implementation plans for each location. While doing this, s/he will ensure child-safeguarding policies; and financial and administrative management adhere to Save the Children’s policies and good practices. S/he will provide thought leadership and make strategic decisions on Waliku for Indonesia, in close coordination with the Waliku Global Team, and Save the Children Indonesia Senior Management. S/he will engage with local and national government to ensure that Waliku is meeting their needs and requirements and at the same time fulfilling its goals for children. S/he will also work with the Waliku Global Team and SC Indonesia NBD Team to fundraise for Waliku’s scale-up in Indonesia.
