THE CHALLENGE

ECW is seeking proposals for bold ideas to help address the billion-dollar finance gap for education in emergencies and protracted crises. Ideas should be substantive and have the potential to raise at least US$50 million per year continually (or US$100 million total once, if a onetime effort). Sources should allow the provision of grant funding as ECW is committed to providing equal and free education.

GOAL AND DELIVERABLE

The goal of the Challenge is to surface new and actionable ideas for large scale resource mobilization efforts with a real potential for implementation. Deliverable of the Challenge will be a unique idea and a business plan for implementation.

THE PRIZE

ECW will award up to three prizes of up to US$25,000 to those who can offer the best, most innovative and credible idea and a business plan for resource mobilization. In addition to the cash prize, ECW may consider supporting the implementation of winning proposals with seed funding.

TIMELINE

  • Learn more during a webinar in July, 2018
  • Submit your idea by July 31, midnight in New York.
  • Present your idea to our Grand Jury, potentially in person, at the margins of the UN General Assembly in the
    third week of September 2018.
  • Turn your top three award-winning idea into a business plan for implementation by January 31, 2019.
  • Continue to work with us and bring education to children and youth in emergencies.

IDEAS WE ARE LOOKING FOR

  1. Bold and large-scale: Ideas should be substantive and have the potential to raise at least US$50 million per year if they are for a continual resource mobilization effort or US$100 million total once, if they for a onetime resource mobilization effort)
  2. Grant funding: Education in emergencies and protracted crisis requires grant funding as ECW supports children and youth with free education. The proposed idea should mobilize resources that lend themselves to finance free education.
  3. Funding for education in emergencies and protracted crisis: Resources mobilized should be without restrictions to finance education in emergencies and protracted crisis in countries affected by conflict and war, natural disasters, pandemics, or refugee crisis and internal displacement.
  4. New sources of finance: ECW is seeking to identify and tap non-traditional sources of financing beyond bilateral donor contributions and mainstream philanthropy. Proposed ideas should not compete with or crowd out existing funding for education in emergencies.
  5. ECW mission and humanitarian principles: Resources mobilized should not conflict with the ECW vision to create a world where all children and youth affected by crisis can learn free of cost, in safety and without fear in order to grow and reach the full potential. They also should not conflict with the humanitarian principles of humanity, neutrality, impartiality, and independence

Recruitment Associate Job in Kenya

Recruitment Associate


PowerGen Renewable Energy is a fast-growing renewable energy company based in Nairobi. Founded in 2011, the company has installed 150+ renewable energy systems, including more than 45 micro-grids and connected 5,000+ homes and businesses in Kenya, Uganda, Tanzania, Zambia, Somalia, and South Sudan to clean and reliable electricity.

We uniquely combine our mission – to provide access to energy across all of Africa – with technical, on-the-ground expertise and an innovative business model. We build, own and operate AC micro-grids to bring power to residential and commercial customers in a for-profit manner.

With over 100 employees, an 11,000 sq. ft. workshop and headquarters in Nairobi and a Tanzanian office in Arusha, PowerGen is building a local company that is set to have an impact on the energy sector in Africa for years to come.

In 2018 PowerGen is focused on expanding on our successes in building and operating micro-grid energy utilities in the region and keeping the model on the path towards commercial viability and scale. We are building a team that is equipped to pursue this vision and could use your help to build it.

What you’ll make happen

We are looking for a creative do-er to join our People Operations team. Someone who enjoys the challenges of a young and growing company and can stand their ground. Someone who enjoys talking to our engineers in the field and can relate to to our business development team in the office. Someone who is there to support both our candidates and hiring managers.

·      Select people. Most candidates find us through our job postings. Roles in finance or installation get a lot of responses via our website. You will help us review the responses and make the first selection of the candidates.

·      Find people. When it comes to specific roles such as Sr. Engineers or experienced Project Managers, we often find them through our own network or carefully reaching out ourselves. You will offer creative solutions in finding people through your own network, through LinkedIn or through new avenues for our pipeline.

·      Influence people. Candidates and colleagues often have questions. You will act as an advocate for both sides. You will play a role in ensuring hiring managers understand the candidates’ capabilities. You will also act as an advocate for PowerGen to help candidates learn what makes PowerGen a great place to work!

·      Interview people. One candidate could be at their best in one organization and find it difficult to perform in the same role at a different organization. You will need to ask the right questions to learn what motivates our candidates and how they will fit into our culture.

·      Advise people. Our recruitment process is far from perfect. You will use your experience and creativity to advise the team on improvements and encourage the use of new tools to boost efficiency and effectiveness. You are an advisor to the hiring manager; you challenge them on their requirements and suggest alternative possibilities.

·      Coach people. The interview process can seem long and include waiting time. Hiring managers want their opening filled today. Candidates are eager to hear how they have done. You will coach them both through the process. You will communicate to candidates and hiring managers every step of the way: after an assignment, a personal interview, whether the outcome was positive, negative or needs some more time.

·      Believe in yourself. PowerGen is the leading microgrid developer in Africa, and our projects and teams move quickly. You will start as a recruiter for several roles but you should see yourself shaping the recruitment strategy of a multinational company. All of our openings are currently in Tanzania and Kenya, but expect to be involved in finding people across the continent.

Skills and qualifications

·      3+ years of experience in finding and hiring people, preferably in an engineering and international environment

·      Results-focused. You are able to get out a JD in time, focus efforts on the goals and follow up with hiring managers and candidates as promised.

·      Listening. You work well with all layers of an organization. You hear and interpret messages from candidates and hiring managers alike and ask additional questions when clarification is needed.

·      Quality focus. Just getting the job done is not enough for you. You set high standards for yourself, and share them with the team. If priorities change, you communicate them with the team in a timely manner.

·      Teamwork. You connect easily with the team and gain their trust and respect. You help others who could use your support and communicate early and thoughtfully when you do.

·      Planning and organizing. You lead searches through planned steps and commit to agreed timelines. You can combine several searches in various stages at the same time.

·      Adaptability. Some openings have been open with us for a while and some openings need someone starting immediately. You can combine these priorities with ease.

·      Problem solving. You identify and analyze problems that cross your path. You are able to offer solutions or share the steps you have taken to solve the problem.

·      Support and live our Values: Integrity, Ingenuity, Passion, Team, Humility and Positivity

Benefits and Compensation

·      Competitive annual compensation

·      Annual holiday bonus

·      Medical insurance

·      Individualized career development

·      Performance feedback and open-door company culture

·      Team building and company-wide events

·      Opportunity to work with a dynamic team of brilliant people passionate about electrifying East Africa!

Kenya: EXTERNAL EVALUATION OF THE ECOLOGICAL ORGANIC AGRICULTURE (EOA) INITIATIVE IN AFRICA (2014-2018) TERMS OF REFERENCE FOR THE CONSULTANCY…

Organization: Biovision
Country: Kenya
Closing date: 20 Feb 2018

Project: Ecological Organic Agriculture Initiative

  1. Background
    The Ecological Organic Agriculture (EOA) Initiative is an African Union-led continental undertaking established in 2013 and currently implemented in eight countries (Benin, Ethiopia, Kenya, Mali, Nigeria, Senegal, Tanzania, and Uganda). It is implemented under the guidance and oversight of the AU chaired Continental Steering Committee (CSC) to establish an African organic farming platform based on available best practices, and to develop sustainable organic farming systems and improve seed quality. Its mission is to promote ecologically sound strategies and practices among diverse stakeholders involved in the production, processing, marketing, and policy-making to safeguard the environment, improve livelihoods, alleviate poverty and guarantee food security among farmers in Africa. The goal is to contribute to mainstreaming of Ecological Organic Agriculture into national agricultural production systems by 2025 in order to improve agricultural productivity, food security, access to markets and sustainable development in Africa. In addition, these efforts are hoped to reduce exploitation of the organic farmers in Africa.
    The initiative embraces holistic production systems that sustain the health of soils, ecosystems, and people, and relies on ecological processes, biodiversity, and cycles adapted to local conditions rather than reliance on the use of external inputs with adverse effects on people’s total health (human, animal, plant and environmental). The EOA initiative was started in response to the African Union Heads of State and Government’s call for the promotion of organic farming in Africa. The African Union Commission, in collaboration with several civil society organizations supporting ecological organic agriculture, organized an inception workshop in May 2011 in Thika Kenya, with financial support from the Swedish Society for Nature Conservation (SSNC) to discuss how to implement this decision. The workshop successfully resulted in a roadmap, concept note and an African Organic Action Plan to mainstream ecological organic agriculture into national agricultural production systems. The action plan was later submitted to donor agencies for financial support and SSNC responded by supporting a pilot project undertaken in six countries (Eastern Africa: Ethiopia, Kenya, Tanzania and Uganda; Southern Africa: Zambia; and Western Africa: Nigeria) while Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation (SDC) came on board to support baseline studies in Benin, Mali,and Senegal with coordination by Biovision Africa Trust (BvAT). Further planning meetings were held culminating in the development of an 8-country project proposal supported by SDC for an initial period of 5 years (2014-2018) while SSNC with funding from the Swedish International Development Cooperation (Sida) supports the EOA Initiative in some Eastern Africa through civil society organizations from 2014 to date. The African Union also supports EOA through funds provided by the European Union .
    The Initiative’s five-year Action Plan and implementation has been anchored on six interrelated pillars: (i) Research, training and extension, (ii) Information and communication, (iii) Value chain and market development, (iv) Networking and partnership, (v) Policy and programme development, and (vi) Institutional capacity development. In the current SDC contribution, the initiative is driven by the first three technical pillars and the fourth one for coordination, management, and networking, basically integrating (iv), (v) and (vi).So far, the four objectives of the EOA Initiative are:

    1. To increase documentation of information and knowledge on organic agricultural products along the complete value chain and support relevant actors to translate it into practices and wide application.
    2. To systematically inform producers about the EOA approaches and good practices and motivate their uptake through strengthening access to advisory and support services.
    3. To substantially increase the share of quality organic products at the local, national, regional and global markets.
    4. To strengthen inclusive stakeholder engagement in organic commodities value chain development by developing national, regional and continental multi-stakeholder platforms to advocate for changes in public policy, plans, and practices.
      This evaluation is coordinated by Biovision Africa Trust (BvAT) on behalf of the CSC and SDC which has the twin functions of being the interim Continental EOA Secretariat and Executing Agency for the EOA Initiative (under SDC’s support).
    5. 1. Purpose and Objectives of the External Evaluation
      With all the interventions of the EOA Initiative having been undertaken since 2014, it was anticipated that an evaluation of the initiative is done in the 8 countries and on the institutional structures established to drive agenda of mainstreaming EOA at country, regional and continental levels in terms of policies, plans, strategies, and programmes.
      The purpose of this evaluation is therefore to:
      (1) Assess the achievements and impacts of the initiative resulting from interventions by the partners (CLOs and PIPs) and institutional structures (Continental Steering Committee, AfroNet, Regional Steering Committees, National Steering Committees, and Executing Agencies) in order to strengthen accountability to stakeholders.
      (2) Foster learning across partners and institutional structures to improve the effectiveness and efficiency of the EOA initiative interventions, and
      (3) Provide recommendations on actions required to increase EOA-I effectiveness, impact, and promotion to countries not covered by the current EOA-I and its funding, with a particular view towards designing the next EOA-I phase under SDC support.
      The EOA external evaluation for Phase I should be designed to show what has worked and not worked in mainstreaming EOA in various dimensions of research, value chain development promotion, and policy, etc at in relation to the project objectives and as driven by the current partner and institutional setup arrangements. Results and recommendations of the evaluation will inform the designing (including impact generating incentive-setting), programming and management of the upcoming Phase II, starting in December 2018.
    6. Objectives of the Evaluation
    7. To assess the extent to which the relevance, effectiveness, and efficiency of mainstreaming EOA into national policies, plans, strategies, and programmes have contributed to expected outcomes and sustainability of the project.
    8. To review the effectiveness and efficiency of the EOA-I structural set up of EOA implementing partners (CLOs and PIPs) and institutional support structures (the AU-Chaired Continental Steering Committee, AfroNet, Regional Steering Committees, National Steering Committees, Executing Agencies and overall M&E systems) in delivering concrete results based on their mandates.
    9. To determine the number (or percent) of households who have been reached by the EOA project and in what ways.
    10. To assess effectiveness and efficiency of EOA pillar interventions in influencing farmers’ knowledge, attitudes and uptake of EOA practices and/or technologies , and the mechanisms by which this occurred.
    11. To assess the extent to which pillar interventions have contributed to key project outcomes including increased agricultural production, productivity, food security, income and farmer welfare.
    12. To assess the extent to which gender equality and access by the youth and other vulnerable groups were considered in the project budget and implementation.
    13. To draw key lessons learnt from Phase 1 of the EOA-I to inform recommendations and actions for addressing the weaknesses and challenges experienced, most appropriate and motivating funding support arrangements, future programming, implementation, monitoring & evaluation and reporting on a sustained basis at all key levels (country, regional, continental platform and AU).
    14. The Evaluation Deliverables/Outputs
      The evaluation’s findings and recommendations will be discussed with the AUC, the Continental Steering Committee (CSC) and Implementing partners (CLOs and PIPs). The consultant will submit a draft final report in both hard and soft copy at the end of the evaluation
      The expected key outputs of the evaluation are:
      (a) An inception report: Elaboration of the external evaluation methodology and tools including a detailed schedule of activities to be undertaken across the eight countries and institutional structures (work plan).
      (b) An Aide Memoire (intermediate report with key findings and recommendations). This will be presented to the CSC in May 2018.
      (c) The External Evaluation Draft and Final Reports: The report should be logically structured including the executive summary, intervention description, assessment purpose, assessment methodology, findings, conclusions, lessons and recommendations, and annexes (key officials interviewed, documents consulted, and data collection instruments). The report should respond in detail to the key focus areas described above. It should include a set of specific recommendations for each EOA implementing partner, and identify the necessary actions to be undertaken as advice in “Way Forward”
