The online volunteer(s) are expected to create professional-grade interactive data visualizations and maps for: a) 5/6 indicators on the situation of refugee children; b) 15-20 indicators related to the activities/results achieved by UNICEF in Education, Child Protection, Immunization, Social Protection; c) overlapping visualizations and maps combining indicators of type a) and b). All products must be in English. Volunteers will receive a certificate of appreciation for their contributions.Once selected, the online volunteer will be contacted to schedule a 30-45 minute Skype call to discuss the project, get directed to the right data sets, explain the type and style of visualizations and maps needed, and clarify expectations. The visualizations and maps should be submitted via email/Dropbox by 15 October, after which there may be 1-2 rounds of feedback for adjustments, with final deadline 30 October. Strict UNICEF branding guidelines will need to be followed for color/typography.

As the Syrian conflict continues, its impact on neighboring countries deepens. To date, Turkey is home to the largest number of refugees in the world. Over 3.1 million Syrians are under temporary protection (1.3 million of whom are children) in addition to about 320,000 asylum-seekers and refugees from other nationalities. Refugee children are highly vulnerable. The Turkey-UNICEF Programme contributes to address the issues affecting them in the areas of education, immunization, child and social protection.
UNICEF and its partners produce several indicators on the situation of refugee children as well as on the activities/results targeting them. So far, UNICEF Turkey has used basic infographics/maps to visualize the data. The objective of the data visualization and mapping project through the online volunteer support is to improve these tools by making them more informative and interactive
