Tue, 02 Jun 2020 03:16:02 +0000

Organization: UN Children's Fund
Closing date: 16 Jun 2020

UNICEF works in some of the world’s toughest places, to reach the world’s most disadvantaged children. To save their lives. To defend their rights. To help them fulfill their potential.

For every child, Protection

Since the beginning of 2018 Bosnia and Herzegovina (BiH) has struggled with an increasing influx of migrants, asylum seekers and refugees after previously popular migration routes to Western Europe through the Balkans shut down in 2017. Over 58,000 persons arrived in BiH from January 2018 through end of April 2020. As of end of May 2020, an estimated 7,000-8,000 persons remained in BiH in need of a range of types of humanitarian assistance at various locations, mostly in Una-Sana Canton which borders Croatia (and thus the European Union). Among the 5,650 refugees and migrants in formal accommodation as of beginning of May 2020, 16 per cent are families with children and 8 per cent unaccompanied and separated children (UASC).The national system to protect UASC in BiH - from identification and registration, to referral and protective services - has been overwhelmed in light of the current refugee and migrant influx, exposing UASC to heightened protection risks, including incidences of (gender-based) violence, abuse, and exploitation (smuggling and human trafficking).UNICEF's humanitarian response to children on the move transiting through/stranded in BiH takes a two-track approach:(1) Immediate humanitarian assistance and protection to refugee and migrant children, especially UASC, working in close collaboration with government authorities at all levels, UN agencies and NGOs; and(2) Strengthening child protection systems to provide better services to all vulnerable children in BiH, through capacity building, policy reform and technical assistance.UNICEF's key child protection interventions in the humanitarian child protection response – in close partnership with relevant ministries, centres for social welfare, and NGOs, extend to the following:(a) Support the identification of UASC, appointment of legal guardianship, child protection case management and referral to relevant support services, including through the deployment of extra professionals and operating of mobile outreach teams to enhance access to child protection services.(b) Provide 24/7 child protection presence at the Bira, Borici, Sedra, Usivak, and Miral TRCs. At the Bira and Miral reception facilities UNICEF established a designated zone for UASC. Child Protection Teams provide 24/7 onsite care and support services as well as referral to external support services.(c) Operating of Child-Friendly Spaces (CFS) at the Usivak and Salakovac reception facilities (as well as reopening of CFS at Sedra and Borici CFS if funds allow). CFS operate as multi-functional centres to prevent and respond to protection concerns and connect children and their families with a variety of humanitarian services. They provide children with opportunities to develop, play, learn, and strengthentheir resilience, as well as access psychosocial support. CFS also offer a space for the identification,referral, and follow-up, and/or direct support of at-risk children.(d) In partnership with Centres for Social Welfare and NGOs UNICEF aims to expand availability of qualitymental health and psychosocial support to children on the move and their caregivers.

Consultancy Services for Endline Evaluation

Mon, 01 Jun 2020 16:02:30 +0000

Country: Senegal
Organization: Amnesty International
Closing date: 30 Jun 2020

Terms of Reference for the Endline Evaluation of the Project: *“Reducing rates of female genital mutilation and early and forced marriage for girls in Sierra Leone, Burkina Faso and Senegal”*.

1. Commissioning party

Amnesty International is a global movement of more than 7 million people who take injustice personally. We are campaigning for a world where human rights are enjoyed by all. We are funded by members and are independent of any political ideology, economic interest or religion. We investigate and expose the facts, whenever and wherever human rights abuses happen. We lobby governments and other powerful groups such as companies, making sure they respect international law. By telling the powerful stories of the people we work with, we mobilize millions of supporters around the world to campaign for change and to stand in defense of activists on the frontline. We also support people to claim their rights through education and training.

Amnesty International has regional offices in Africa, Asia-Pacific, Central and Eastern Europe, Latin America and the Middle East. These offices are major hubs for our investigations, campaigns and communications. The regional offices strengthen the work of Amnesty International “Sections” at the national level in more than 70 countries. We can therefore respond quickly to events wherever they happen and be a powerful force for freedom and justice.

2. Background

Amnesty International’s UK Section received funding from the UK government’s Department for International Development (DFID) to implement a three-year project (2017-2020) to reduce rates of female genital mutilation (FGM) and early and forced marriage (EFM) for girls in Sierra Leone, Burkina Faso and Senegal. The project aims to prevent and reduce FGM and EFM through education, awareness raising and advocacy with a view to bringing about attitudinal and behavioural change as well as legislative reform. A total of 69 communities were originally targeted across the three countries with the ambition to prevent at least 22,358 new cases of FGM/EFM.

Amnesty International UK is contractually responsible for managing the grant (GBP 810,982). Amnesty International’s International Secretariat is responsible for project management as well as monitoring, evaluation and learning via its regional office based in Dakar, Senegal. The national Sections are responsible for project coordination and implementation. They work with community-based partners to implement activities which aim to empower women and girls, to engage leaders and to mobilize communities.

The project is due to conclude at the end of June 2020 and Amnesty International is seeking a consultant to carry out a final evaluation of its impact and effectiveness.

3. Project rationale and description

The practices of FGM and EFM are linked to deeply entrenched traditional beliefs and myths, as well as wider gender inequalities combined with strong cultural barriers to women’s participation in decisions affecting them. This project uses a rights-based approach to change harmful attitudes and empower women and girls to advocate for their rights through community mobilization, capacity strengthening, education and awareness-raising.

The outcome that the project intends to achieve is two-fold:

1) To prevent 13,550 cases of FGM and 16,260 cases of EFM for girls under the age of eighteen years (a total of 22,358 taking into account the overlap between the two) in Burkina Faso, Senegal and Sierra Leone.

2) Increased pressure on governments for legislative reform to tackle FGM/EFM in Sierra Leone, Burkina Faso and Senegal as a result of community-led advocacy.

Indicators for the Project Outcome:

Outcome Indicator 1: A decline in prevalence levels (%) of FGM within target communities in Sierra Leone, Burkina Faso and Senegal

Outcome Indicator 2: A decline in prevalence levels (%) of EFM within target communities in Sierra Leone, Burkina Faso and Senegal

Outcome Indicator 3: Amendments made to legislation prohibiting FGM/EFM in all three countries

4. Purpose of the end line evaluation

The primary purpose of this evaluation is to assess the extent to which the project has achieved the above-mentioned outcome. It will therefore prioritize measuring the effectiveness and impact of the project. Consequently, the evaluation needs to collect credible and reliable data (using a statistically reliable sample) that clearly shows how many cases of FGM and EFM were prevented during the project period.

In addition, it is intended that the evaluation will identify and document good practice and lessons learned as well as formulate recommendations which can inform future such interventions.

Finally, it is also intended that the results of the evaluation inform the project completion report that AIUK is due to submit to DFID in September 2020.

Specific objectives of the evaluation:

Impact

  • To collect and analyze data which are comparable with the baseline study in order to assess the extent to which the project outcome has been achieved.

  • To provide an overview and analysis of the legislative reform which has taken place within the project period, and the extent to which advocacy carried out by the project influenced this change.

  • To review the project’s theory of change and methodology, and to provide recommendations, if appropriate, for adapting it for a possible extension of the project.

Effectiveness

  • To collect and analyze data which are comparable with the baseline study in order to assess changes in knowledge, attitudes and practice among the target populations (e.g. knowledge and attitudes regarding human rights, gender equality, FGM/EFM and the relevant legal framework, community-led awareness-raising and advocacy initiatives…).

  • To provide an overview and analysis of the advocacy initiatives implemented by the project and their influence on parliamentarians and political processes.

  • To assess the extent to which legal reform and raising awareness of legislation criminalizing FGM/EFM influences attitudes and behavior at the community level in each country

Good practice and lesson learning

  • To identify and document good practice and lessons learned, especially through case studies

  • To identify challenges faced by the project as well as opportunities for a project extension and provide recommendations on how to address them (e.g. girls being taken to other regions/countries to be cut/married, reaching out to border communities, IDP camps/communities, beneficiary feedback mechanisms, monitoring mechanisms).

Sustainability

  • To assess the sustainability of the project and provide recommendations for a three-year extension and exit strategy.

5. Methodology

It is expected that prospective consultants propose an appropriate methodology to achieve the objectives of this evaluation. Nevertheless, it is expected that the methodology, in part at least, mirrors as far as possible the methodology used for the baseline study to ensure comparative data. Amnesty International would expect a mixed method longitudinal approach to assess impact (specifically the project outcome in this case) and for a representative sample to be targeted in the communities covered by the baseline study across the three countries. The data from the endline evaluation needs to be comparable with the data from the baseline study. Desk research will also be required to analyze legislative reform.

It is also expected that the consultant would not only carry out surveys and focus groups with direct beneficiaries, but would also consult project participants, key stakeholders (e.g. local authorities, health professionals, etc.) and wider members of the community.

6. Scope of work

The consultant/consultancy firm will be required to undertake the following specific tasks:

  • Desk review of background documents (project document, project monitoring data, progress report, baseline report and data, field visit reports etc.).

  • Review the assessment tools (quantitative and qualitative) and processes used during the baseline for endline purposes.

  • Develop / adapt assessment tools (both quantitative and qualitative) for the endline evaluation which will ensure a comparison of baseline and endline data.

  • Data collection in a sample of target communities across the three countries of intervention (Burkina Faso, Senegal, Sierra Leone).

  • Ensure data quality measures are observed in all stages of the evaluation: during data coding and transcription; during data analysis process.

  • Analyze and interpret data to develop a comprehensive end line report.

  • Present key findings and insights in a draft report to be presented at a workshop with relevant project staff and stakeholders (using tables, charts and graphs to illustrate the results).

  • Submit an end line report which should respect or adapt with AI’s approval, the following format:

ActionAid Arab Region aims to increase the power of young people & women to be drivers of change to create sustainable communities, through conscientization, organizing and campaigning, mobilizing and building solidarity to harness individual and collective power. Our programming is rooted in the communities we work, led and informed by people living in poverty and exclusion, and governed by a Human Rights Based Approach (HRBA) and feminist leadership principles.

Our Theory of Change is centred on increasing the power of women and young people who suffer discrimination because of their gender and/ or age and those who are negatively impacted by the protracted crisis. We aim to contribute to structural change through supporting and working with women and young people living in poverty and exclusion and their organisations on women’s rights - ending all forms of violence against women and girls; attaining their civic and political participation; and identifying and mitigating protection risks for communities affected by conflict. In order to bring about sustain changes, we also focus on three cross-cutting areas throughout our programmes: that women’s rights is central; social cohesion is enhanced; and transparency and accountability is promoted.

Background to this consultancy

ActionAid’s ‘Promoting Feminist Leadership to Combat Sexual and Gender based Violence in Jordan’ (PFL) project, funded by the European Commission, contributes to women’s human rights by strengthening the participation of women and girls and their CBOs in local and national development processes in Jordan. More specifically, the project aims to build the feminist leadership of young women and men to combat violence against women and girls in public spaces in Jordan. This is done through formation of four feminist schools, in Zarqa and Mafraq, that are used as vehicles for capacity development, campaigning and networking and advocacy for young women and men.

Capacity development includes enhancement of knowledge and critical awareness of 300 young women and men on women’s rights thematic focus such as gender and power; feminism; feminist leadership; gender, violence and discrimination and the status of women in international conventions and in the Jordanian laws. Campaigning includes the planning and implementation of 3 local level campaigns to raise the awareness of 1000 community members around safety of women in public places, specific focus on sexual harassment in the streets.

Networking and advocacy includes opening discussions around the issue of safety of women in public spaces among women’s national networks (particularly the CEDAW Coalition and Mosawa Network) and allowing young women and men to voice their demands on this issue with government entities and semi-government entities, such as the Jordanian National Commission for Women (JNCW).

This Consultancy focuses on the realization of the capacity development component for 200 young women and men through the development of a thematic Training of Trainers (TOT) on the newly developed manual on gender equality and feminist leadership. The TOT trainer will train 9 trainees who will in turn conduct 8 trainings as a result of this.

Project Methodology:

Mutual Learning:

The overall intervention methodology of this project depends on mutual learning and formulation of a shared basis of knowledge between the members of the feminist school members which will enable them to reconsider masculinity and stereotypes in their local communities critically. The methodology that these youth platforms use depends mainly on the concept of "feminist leadership". Through the school activities, the young women and men see a model of feminist leadership and they are encouraged to replicate this with their local groups.

Feminist Leadership principles:

Feminist Leadership principles include, but are not limited to: A) Inclusivity and empowerment (that is why we have young men and young women together) we work on correcting the perceptions around the concept of "feminism" with them (not men haters but looking for dignity and equity for all). B) understanding that young women might have obligations, such as children, that might not allow them to participate (therefore allowing young women with children to bring their children to the sessions of the feminist school). C) Acknowledging that the young women have specific issues that need to be addressed in a safe space without attendance of young men, and also building solidarity among women to develop inner strength, hence the schools also have Women to Women sessions. D) Addressing root causes of issues of violence against women and girls (VAWG) (the feminist school focuses on addressing internalisation and reproduction of VAWG, so with young men we address re-defining their own masculinity, with young women we address their own internalised concepts of oppression). E) Commitment to developing the concept and not just accepting it as it is (therefore the concept itself develops with the young people and they have a say in developing it, thus it is not a top-down approach, but rather a bottom-up concept that puts young people at its centre). F) Working on ‘changing ourselves’ (individual change) as an essential prerequisite for working on changing the community.

Transformative adult education methods (using reflection action methods):

All capacity development interventions in the project use classroom and outdoor settings based on the Transformative Adult Learning Cycle, which is essentially an inclusive and a participatory process. This method takes participants through an experience, which they then reflect upon. Consequently, they are able to understand and implement a relevant action. In this way ‘the cycle of ‘reflection leading to action’ continues. Skilled facilitation methods will be used, in addition to the screening of relevant videos to show examples of successful reflective experiences which can support participants in their learning journey.

Objective of this Consultancy

The main purpose of this Consultancy is to ensure the sustainability of the PFL project impact by further grounding the feminist schools in local communities through the horizontal expansion of the feminist schools’ concept. As the action nears its end the training will include a Transformative Adult Learning Cycle[1] which uses a cycle of reflection – action that allows young people to execute activities and then reflect on them to see how they can improve the impact (see Methodology).

Expected Results

· 9 trainees can conduct cascade trainings to 200 young women (70%) and men (30 %).

· The 9 trainees will conduct 8 trainings in their local communities. (4 trainings in Zarqa and 4 trainings (each training is 4 days) in Mafraq) for 200 participants.

Expected Outputs

· Thematic TOT will be conducted for maximum of 5 days by the Consultant to a total of 9 participants (3 experienced trainers from Jordan, preferably Jordanian women) and 6 young women and men from the 4 Feminist Schools.

· Pre and post evaluation raw data on excel.

· Training report including pre and post evaluation data.

· Reflection session on the previous process with trainers will be conducted by ActionAid Arab Region.

Requirements:

· A skilled facilitator with previous training experience.

· Excellent command of the Arabic language.

· Experience on women’s rights and feminism.

· Knowledge of Jordanian context.

· Knowledge and use of transformative adult education methods.

Notes:

· Given the current circumstances in regard to the Covid-19 outbreak, the training will take place via online platforms.

· Only shortlisted applicants will be contacted.

Operations Officer, NOB (Temporary Appointment), New Delhi [This position is for Indian Nationals only]

Mon, 01 Jun 2020 15:16:02 +0000

Country: India
Organization: UN Children's Fund
Closing date: 21 Jun 2020

UNICEF works in some of the world’s toughest places, to reach the world’s most disadvantaged children. To save their lives. To defend their rights. To help them fulfill their potential.

Across 190 countries and territories, we work for every child, everywhere, every day, to build a better world for everyone. UNICEF has spent 70 years working to improve the lives of children and their families.

And we never give up.

For Every Child, AN ADVOCATE:

The fundamental mission of UNICEF is to promote the rights of every child, everywhere, in everything the organization does — in programs, in advocacy and in operations. The equity strategy, emphasizing the most disadvantaged and excluded children and families, translates this commitment to children’s rights into action. For UNICEF, equity means that all children have an opportunity to survive, develop and reach their full potential, without discrimination, bias or favoritism. To the degree that any child has an unequal chance in life — in its social, political, economic, civic and cultural dimensions — her or his rights are violated. There is growing evidence that investing in the health, nutrition, education and protection of a society’s most disadvantaged citizens — addressing inequity — not only will give all children the opportunity to fulfill their potential but also will lead to sustained growth and stability of countries. This is why the focus on equity is so vital. It accelerates progress towards realizing the human rights of all children, which is the universal mandate of UNICEF, as outlined by the Convention on the Rights of the Child, while also supporting the equitable development of nations.
