1. BACKGROUND

Children with Disabilities and Play in Malaysia

Malaysia ratified the Convention of the Rights of the Child (CRC) in 1995 and Convention of the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (CRPD) in 2010, albeit with reservations, and implemented a Persons with Disabilities Act in 2008. Yet there are numerous gaps in legislation, policies, participation and service delivery keeping children with disabilities and their families from realizing their rights. Exacerbating the situation is a lack of effective synergy, particularly in the provision of basic social services such as healthcare, education, rehabilitation, protection and welfare services, along with the absence of an integrated national policy or statement of direction that cuts across service sectors.

The UNICEF' Childhood Disability in Malaysia: A Study of Knowledge, Attitudes and Practice' (2016) highlights the need to create an inclusive society for all by removing environmental, institutional and attitudinal barriers which daily challenge children with disabilities and their families.

The right to play is enshrined in the article 31 of the Convention on the Rights of the Child. In addition, the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (CRPD) guarantees this right and equal access to play for children with disabilities. Although children with disabilities benefit from play in the same way as children without disabilities, for many their fundamental right to play is often thwarted because of environmental barriers and social exclusion. The spaces and structures set up for children's play are often not accessible to and their needs are not considered in the design of the playgrounds and parks. The resulting lack of interaction between children with and without disabilities reinforces the attitudinal barriers, prejudices and discrimination that relegates children with disabilities to the margins of society.

Children Rights and Business Principles

UNICEF globally recognizes the importance of engaging the private sector in its work, and in advancing corporate social responsibility (CSR) and their commitments to children. With the development of the Children Rights and Business Principles (CRBP) in collaboration with Save the Children and Global Compact in 2012, this solidified the organization's commitment to influence and harness the private sector to maximize potential of achieving sustainable results for all children.

The CRBP contains Ten Principles that serve as an inspiration and guide for all business in their interactions with children to:

  • Meet their responsibility to respect children's rights and commit to supporting the human rights of children
  • Contribute to the elimination of child labour including in all business activities and business relationships
  • Provide decent work for young workers, parents and caregivers
  • Ensure the protection and safety of children in all business activities and facilities
  • Ensure that products and services are safe and seek to support children's rights through them
  • Use marketing and advertising that respect and support children's rights
  • Respect and support children's rights in relation to the environment and land acquisition and use
  • Respect and support children's rights in security arrangements
  • Help protect children affected by emergencies
  • Reinforce community and government efforts to protect and fulfil children's rights.

Action

In response to this, in 2018 UNICEF Malaysia supported a high-profile private sector property development company to design Malaysia's first truly inclusive playground. This partnership and the soon to be constructed inclusive playground seek to address the following:

  • Improving in the infrastructure of public spaces making them more inclusive
  • Creating opportunities for children with disabilities to be visible and interact with other children
  • Ensuring participation of children with disabilities in the planning, design and implementation of programmes
  • Promoting more child-centric activities designed to change social norms

The rationale for UNICEF Malaysia to work with the private sector is as follows:

  • For UNICEF Malaysia to showcase a Malaysian private sector partners partner supporting and implementing the CRBP;
  • For UNICEF Malaysia to leverage on the connections and influence that large property development companies in Malaysia have with the Government, including their links with municipal councils who will be tasked with the maintenance of playgrounds once they are built and handed over from the property developers;
  • For UNICEF Malaysia to showcase the private sector partnership and establishment of Inclusive Playgrounds as a Best Business Practice, as encouragement to other companies and government bodies to follow suit. It is also an opportunity to showcase the business case for the private sector - in the form of a Best Business Practice Circular & Guidance Toolkit - to support UNICEF's programmatic goals and contribute to the advancement of children's rights.
  • For UNICEF Malaysia to leverage on the connections and influence within the Government, to strengthen their commitments and enforcement of the Malaysian Standard 1184: Universal Design and Accessibility in the Build Environment Code of Practice on all Public Access Property Development Projects in the future.

Country: Iraq

UNICEF works in some of the worlds toughest places, to reach the worlds 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.

And we never give up.

For every child, hope

The fundamental mission of UNICEF is to promote the rights of every child, everywhere, in everything the organization does - in programmes, 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, 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.

You will work collaboratively with multiple organization including government, UN agencies and national and international NGOs to facilitate the development of GBV programming priorities and their rapid implementation in Humanitarian and none Humanitarian settings to ensure the achievement of concrete and sustainable results for children and women. You execute initiatives aimed at strengthening partners technical capacity to effectively prevent and respond to GBV through capacity building and monitoring activities. You will also support UNICEF's engagement in policy and advocacy efforts to strengthen the enabling environment for protection of women and children form all forms of violence, abuse and exploitation.

To qualify as an advocate for every child you will have:

  • Education: A university degree in one of the following fields is required: international development, human rights, psychology, sociology, international law, or another relevant social science field.
  • Experience: A minimum of two years of professional experience in Child Protection, GBV, social development planning and management in child protection related areas is required.

A: Purpose of consultancy

The Whitaker Peace & Development Initiative (WPDI) is an international non-profit non-governmental organization. WPDI works to harness the potential of youth for peace through youth-led educational and economic projects and community-strengthening activities.

WPDI has started implementing a three-year project in South Sudan funded by the Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation which commenced in August 2019 and running until July 2020 for the first phase of the project. The second phase of the project will commence from August 2020 and running until July 2021, and finally the third phase of the project will commence from August 2021 to run until July 2022. Over the course of the project, an outcome monitoring will be commissioned by WPDI to be done by an external consultant/consultant firm, terms of reference of which will be agreed jointly by WPDI and the Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation. This Outcome monitoring is to eventually lead to the monitoring and impact evaluation and review which will be conducted at the end of the project as a part of the outcome and impact evaluation to help assess the project progress, effectiveness and identify any gaps during implementation.

The project focuses on young people as the primary stakeholders to foster conditions for peace and sustainable development in the Equatorias region of South Sudan through the following key delivery areas:

  1. Building and strengthening a workforce of 360 peacemakers (TOTs and Payam youths) in CES.

  2. Training in conflict resolution to 800 students from 8 schools of Juba, CES, 4 schools in Yambio, WES and 4 schools in Torit, EES

  3. Organizing 45 community dialogues to convene local community members around issues concerning peace, human rights and other issues covered by the SDGs.

  4. Promoting entrepreneurship and sustainable livelihoods in EES and WES through the organization of Business Plan competition under the Business Boot Camp (BBC) initiative in Torit and Maridi, respectively.

To this end, WPDI and the Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation are seeking to procure the services of an independent, external consultant1 to design, plan and conduct a rigorous outcome monitoring and final impact evaluation using the outcome and impact planning as outlined by WPDI in the outcome matrix of the project herein attached as an annex in this TOR document as well as the results of the baseline study to inform the planning and outcome measurements.

About WPDI

WPDI operates in South Sudan through its flagship program – the Youth Peacemaker Network (YPN), a youth empowerment program that equips young women and men from vulnerable and conflict affected areas as partners in the promotion of peace and sustainable development. Based on our theory of change in which young people can be key agents of grassroots transformation, we provide young people with civic and vocational skills that they can put to use in their daily lives and support projects developed by young people to promote peace and sustainability in their communities.

To these effects, the YPN mainly builds on (1) cohorts of young people whom we train and support directly as an on-the-ground force for peace and sustainable community development, and (2) a network of Community Learning Centres (CLCs) that we establish in remote and under-serviced areas and where community members can access Internet-capable computers, library services as well as courses in such areas as conflict resolution, ICTs, arts and crafts and entrepreneurship, and (3), support of grants to youth community groups to implement Income generating projects (IGPs) that can help create employment and improve livelihoods of the youths and community members in general.

Key Project activities and outputs:

1. *Building and strengthening 360 peacemakers in CES

In view of its strategy to empower young people as implementers of activities conducive to peace and sustainable development in vulnerable communities, WPDI is in the process of completing the building of its youth force for peace and sustainable development in CES. This requires (1.1) to further strengthen the training of the 40 TOTs (this training has already been completed), and (1.2a) enroll the 320 payam youths that the TOTs will in turn (1.2b) train in the course of the first quarter of 2020. The program is at a critical juncture since we have achieved the basic training of our 40 youth leaders who will deliver training through the Training of Trainers model as elaborated below:

1.1 Strengthen the ability of WPDI to deploy a youth-based force for peace and sustainable development by holding a one-week capacity strengthening workshop of to reinforce the capacity of our young leaders to manage local business initiatives, advocate for peace-related issues among communities, and teach conflict resolution in schools – this particular task was already accomplished in August 2019;

1.2 Ensure the availability in CES of a youth-based force that WPDI lead peacemakers (TOTs) can mobilize for the promotion of peace and sustainable development through :

a. One (1) recruitment campaign in the counties of CES to select enroll 320 young women and men from the payams;

b. One (1) training in peacebuilding and entrepreneurship held in four different locations of CES, whereby the youth leaders/ToTs will train the 320 local youth in four respective groups of:

§ 112 youth in Juba (14 leaders/ToTs);

§ 64 youth in Lanya (8 leaders/ToTs);

§ 64 youth in Terekeka (7 leaders/ToTs);

§ 80 in Yei (10 leaders/ToTs).

2. *Training in conflict resolution of 800 students from 8 schools of Juba, CES, Yambio, WES, and Torit, EES

The main objective is to sensitize children and youth to values of peace precisely because they are at an age when their value system as future citizens is being shaped but also because they can be agents of peace as of today. The CRE will establish mediators, namely students that we train to help their peers sort out their conflicts. In line with our TOT model, the CRE program will be implemented by our youth leaders, whose age proximity with their trainees facilitates the transmission of values and skills. This we believe is the surest path to establish a long-term culture of peace in the areas covered by the program.

WPDI will contribute to establish a peaceful learning environment in schools of CES and WES by training:

2.a 400 students in 8 schools of Juba, CES;

2.b 200 students in 4 schools in Yambio, WES;

2.c 200 students in 4 schools of Torit, CES.

3. *Promoting entrepreneurship and sustainable livelihoods in EES and WES

Because we assume that peace and sustainable livelihoods are two sides of the same coin the YPN entails both a civic component on peace and a vocational component on entrepreneurship. In 2018, we strengthened the former component by establishing the Business Boot Camp, an integrated facility through which we disseminate entrepreneurship skills and incubate small businesses. The business trainings are provided at our CLC in three levels, basic, intermediate and advanced, each module lasting 3 months. The business incubation process starts with the selection of business plans through a competitive process among former trainees, a criteria adopted to ensure that beneficiaries have a sound understanding of business principles.

At each competition, our committee, composed of WPDI and its partners, selects the three most promising projects. The laureates receive an initial grant with which they launch their business. The ongoing financing of each project is contingent on the compliance of the entrepreneurs to a number of requirements that we have put in view of ensuring that these businesses are profitable and sustainable.

Promote access to entrepreneurship in EES and CES program through the:

3.a Support of 4 existing businesses in EES;

3.b Delivery of business skills courses over 8 months at our CLC in Maridi, WES;

3.c Creation of three new businesses selected upon a business plan competition organized at our CLC in Maridi, WES.

The expected outcomes of the project are as follows:

Outcome 1: Conditions for peace, resilience and sustainable development in the communities targeted by the YPN in the Equatorias region are enhanced through (a) the different activities undertaken by the youth leaders supported by WPDI, inclusive of community dialogues and (b) the peacebuilding undertaken within schools.

Outcome 2: Youth are more autonomous and less inclined to join armed groups or gangs and communities benefit from job opportunities, increased income and livelihoods

Outcome 3: A culture of peace disseminated in communities of the Equatorias region

Outcome 4: Conditions of sustainable development are promoted through the culture of entrepreneurship and opportunities for youth to develop small businesses

Please kindly note that this post advertisement is also a roster. Even if you do not get selected for this particular post, we may contact you directly if there is a suitable opportunity in the future and a more specific JD will then be shared.

How can you make a difference:

Violence against women and girls (VAWG) is one of the most widespread, persistent and devastating human rights violations impacting negatively to the desired fulfilment of women’s and girls’ empowerment and development and therefore a threat to the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals. While there have been efforts to address and eliminate Sexual and Gender Based Violence (SGBV) and Harmful Practices (HP) in Papua New Guinea, progress remains slow and uneven, with fragmented approaches. It is clear that the elimination of all forms of SGBV and HP is intrinsically connected to transformation of gender and socio-cultural norms including those related to women’s sexuality and reproduction; and to improving access to comprehensive sexuality education and sexual and reproductive health information and services especially for women and girls.

In response to this, the European Union and the United Nations initiated the Spotlight Initiative, a global partnership between the United Nations (UN) and the European Union (EU) focused on efforts to eliminate all forms of violence against women and girls in support of the 2030 Agenda on Sustainable Development. The initiative comes with the highest level of commitment globally as it will be governed by the UN Deputy Secretary General and the Vice President of the EU Commission. The Initiative provides a model under UN Reform for partnerships among key players encompassing participating countries, development partners, civil society, and the UN to deliver on the SDGs in a comprehensive manner leveraging comparative advantages and expertise of various Agencies.

In Papua New Guinea, UNFPA will be one of the UN Agencies (alongside UNDP, UNICEF and UNWOMEN) overseeing the implementation of the Spotlight Initiative guided by the ICPD Programme of Action and the 2018 – 2021 Strategic Planning which focuses on three transformative outcomes: end gender-based violence and other harmful practices; ending preventable maternal deaths; and ending unmet need for family planning.
