The project will be implemented in 31 counties across the 5 regions i.e. Central Region: Kiambu, Muranga, Nyandarua, Nyeri, Laikipia, Kirinyaga Eastern Region: Embu, Meru, Makueni, Tharaka-Nithi, Machakos, Kajiado. Rift-Valley Region: Uasin-Gishu, Nandi, Trans-Nzoia, Elgeiyo-Marakwet, Nakuru, Narok, Kericho and Bomet. Nyanza & Western Region: Kakamega, Bungoma, Kisii and Nyamira.

The project is being implemented in partnership with Equity Bank, Finserve, Ministry of Agriculture, Farmer Based Organization, and BDS providers. 60,000 famers in Eastern, Nyanza, Rift, Central, Western, and Coastal regions. This comprises of small and medium farmers engaging on livestock, horticultural, cereals, legumes and pulses farming. The program also works with 5,000 SMEs who are engaged in agricultural businesses such as buyers of agricultural produce, transporters, agro-dealers, agro processors, commercial extension officers, suppliers off technologies etc: to achieve its objectives which are:

Objective 1: Enhance access to financial products and services amongst farmers and SMEs in agriculture Objective 2: Strengthen collaboration between agriculture value chain actors Objective 3: Improve entrepreneurial and financial capacities of farmers and SMEs in agriculture  Objective 4: Improve adoption of good agricultural practices of farmers Objective 5: Enhance human resource capacity to wholesomely support farming ecosystems

Justification for Baseline Survey:

Equity Group Foundation places great importance on the role of evaluations in providing basis for decision making, learning and implementing quality programs for evidence-based results. It is against this background that the M&E department would like to commission a Baseline Impact Evaluation to provide baseline values for the anticipated impacts and outcomes of the project – positive and negative, intended and unintended, direct and indirect. The broad objective of the agribusiness baseline impact evaluation is to prepare baseline information on program-related indicators against which the performance and impact of the program in the future, as specified in the program document and the program monitoring and evaluation framework, will be assessed. These program indicators should be contextualized through a situation analysis of the current state of agribusiness enterprises in Kenya, with specific focus on the project sites. The specific objectives of the baseline study are:

  1. Establish baseline values for all impact and outcome level indicators from the program monitoring and evaluation matrix
  2. Collect and analyze the relevant information of the existing situation of the program’s target beneficiaries including the farmers, SMEs, service providers, and/or related stakeholders
  3. Enhance understanding of the characteristics and determinants of farmers and SMEs activities, management practices, access and control in agribusiness and financial access
  4. Develop detailed recommendations (specific value chain interventions) on how to select value chains to focus on.

The proposed baseline impact evaluation is expected to use methods that will establish expected cause causal inference of observed changes (in this case ‘impacts') and to show causal attribution. It is against this background that the EGF seeks to engage an external evaluator, this is because of the project’s needs in terms of expertise, impartiality, cost, and time. In terms of expertise, an external evaluator possesses certain evaluation research skills and knowledge, he/she also has exposure to a wider range of issues, methods, and practices that would be useful to incorporate in the evaluation.

Qualifications / Experience: The consultancy firm must be a legal entity. The firm MUST provide demonstrable experience in designing and leading multi-value chain agriculture program evaluations with experience in working with farmers and/or SME training and/or financial access approaches carried in the recent past 5 years

3.1 Key Competencies: The lead consultant/investigator must be at least a Masters holder in either agriculture, research methods, development or business studies or a relevant discipline PHD holder will have added advantage. MUST be able to facilitate and relate to stakeholders at multiple levels (e.g. NGOs, public and private employer organizations, field participants, etc.)  Have proven ability of Agriculture Value-chain data analysis, presentation skills, and strong writing ability  Technical Team Supporting the evaluation MUST have proven ability to use quantitative, qualitative and participatory evaluation methods, with examples and references that can speak to this experience. Sensitivity to cultural/historical context in the data collection process Relevant geographical experience ideally in Eastern Africa and especially in the agriculture sector with a bias to agri-business finance Experience in in similar evaluation of development and/or livelihood programs preferably experience in evaluating agri-business financial access projects .

Kenya: Consultant, Documentation of best practices and lessons learned for child protection and education

Organization: UN Children's Fund
Country: Kenya
Closing date: 20 Aug 2018

Within the framework of the UNICEF Strategic Plan 2018–2021 and in line with the Eastern and Southern Africa (ESA) Managing for Results initiative, the ESA Regional Management Team has identified the following five programmatic priorities to focus cross-country action and learning and to reinforce joint accountability: (1) enabling children to survive and thrive; (2) reducing stunting to provide opportunities for children to realize their full potential; (3) improving education quality and learning outcomes to prepare children for the future; (4) achieving adolescent development, protection and participation and; (5) scaling up social protection interventions to reduce child poverty and other vulnerabilities that impede the full realization of child rights.

Several crosscutting factors have been considered in the five Regional Priorities:

  • The gender dimension is an important factor in all UNICEF programmes in Eastern and Southern Africa. UNICEF studies the patterns of gender inequality, including through sex-disaggregated data and gender analysis, and responds with gender-equitable programmes to help fulfil the rights of all children.
  • Child poverty, measured in terms of multiple deprivations, and high levels of inequality affect many aspects of UNICEF work for children, and these factors are relevant across all the Regional Priorities.
  • Multiple fragile contexts and frequent emergencies in the Eastern and Southern Africa region necessitate risk-informed programming, emergency preparedness and resilience-building activities in the Regional Priorities. At times of emergency, UNICEF works with partners to deliver humanitarian action in line with the Core Commitments for Children.
  • Systems strengthening, communication for development (C4D), evidence generation, advocacy, and public finance for children define the critical actions and related strategies, i.e. the ‘hows’ of the Regional Priorities.
  • An important aspect of moving the agenda forward of the Regional Priorities is knowledge management, and in particular, documenting best practices of implementation of programmes that appear promising to yield results and that could be shared with other country offices.

    Against this background, the purpose of this assignment is to increase knowledge management of the implementation of the Regional Priorities through the development of lessons learned documents in the areas of: a) multi-sectoral programming for young people in Eswatini (former Swaziland) b) child marriage and data mapping in Ethiopia b) school-related violence against children (VAC) and the extent to which schools serve as “protective environments” for vulnerable girls, boys and those with disabilities in Uganda c) multi-sectoral collaboration in the prevention and response to VAC including in schools in Uganda d) The use of 7% thematic funds for the Protection against Sexual Exploitation and Abuse in relation to the GBV integration process in Ethiopia and South Sudan e) Birth registration in humanitarian settings including displaced population in Ethiopia, Uganda and South Sudan and f) Diversion scheme in Tanzania and Zambia

    Scope of Work

    Under the supervision of the Child Protection Specialist, the consultant will document best practices and lessons learned. In particular, the consultant will:

  • Conduct a review of programme documents related to the programmes that will be documented.
  • Conduct interviews with country office staff and implementing partners as redeemed necessary.
  • Produce four documentation reports of the lessons learned from each programmes.
  • Produce a final report of the consultancy including observations and proposed way forward from each programmes and with annexes of each documentation report.
  • Outputs/deliverables

    To facilitate progress and ensure timely delivery of outputs, the consultant will submit an initial inception report, including timeframe for interviews and desk review and a final report including annexes of the lessons learned documents, observations and way forward as well as a summary list of outputs/deliverables.

    Kenya: Consultancy to support the development and piloting of a Toolkit to reinforce Accountability to Affected Populations(AAP) and Community…

    Organization: UN Children's Fund
    Country: Kenya
    Closing date: 27 Jul 2018

    Community Engagement and Accountability to Affected populations(AAP) are core cross cutting components of the current UNICEF strategic plan. It is one of the key pillars of many global initiatives such as the UNICEF’s global strategies for Health (2016-2030), Water, Sanitation, and Hygiene (WASH), Ending Violence against Children, community approaches to total sanitation (CATS), and community based management of severe acute malnutrition (CMAM). These approaches emphasize the key role of community engagement towards improving program outcomes particularly through increased demand for and use of quality services, greater social accountability, and addressing social norms and behavioral determinants.

    As part of strengthening this aspect of programming, UNICEF has received some funding from DFID and BMGF to strengthen Community engagement through the development of guidelines, tools, standards and indicators. This investment is aimed at building the organization’s capacity for Communication and Community Engagement by addressing identified institutional gaps and address it by strengthening capacities of government and CSO partners to effectively place community engagement at the center of development and humanitarian work

    This effort is in line with most of UNICEF’s current initiatives including the global Business case and framework on scaling up Accountability to Affected populations, the Eastern and Southern Africa Region’s guidance note on AAP, and the Communication and Community Engagement Initiative1.

    Justification/Purpose of the Consultancy

    Community Engagement is an essential element of development and emergency programming. Trusted, clear and effective communication and engagement approaches are critical in maintaining good community feedback mechanisms, addressing expectations, and ensuring that misunderstanding and/or rumors do not undermine programming and or response efforts, in case of humanitarian context.

    Good Community Engagement helps implementers gain insights into the perceptions and behaviors of different groups which is essential for developing effective and targeted messaging. Key to the achievement of this is the capacity of UNICEF staff and implementing partners which is yet to reach its full potential.

    This consultancy is intended to support the mapping of existing Accountability to Affected Communities landscape in ESAR. It will also support the development and piloting of a Toolkit to be used by UNICEF country offices in the development and strengthening of capacities of Government counter parts and Implementing Partners to plan, design and implement effective community engagement interventions. The Toolkit will be piloted in two ESAR AAP pilot countries to be identified among the following countries; Tanzania, Ethiopia, Somalia and South Sudan. As this is a specific area of work, a dedicated consultant is required.

    Kenya: CASH AND MARKET REGIONAL HUB ADVISOR

    Organization: CARE USA
    Country: Kenya
    Closing date: 21 Jul 2018

    At CARE, we seek a world of hope, tolerance and social justice, where poverty has been overcome and people live with dignity and security.

    This has been our vision since 1945, when we were founded to send lifesaving CARE Packages® to survivors of World War II. Today, CARE is a global leader in the movement to eradicate poverty. In 2016, CARE worked in 94 countries and reached 80 million people with an incredible range of life-saving programs. We also put women and girls at the center of our work because we know that we cannot overcome poverty until all people have equal rights and opportunities. We seek dynamic, innovative thinkers to further our mission. If you share our core beliefs: poverty is an injustice; poverty is solvable; and together, we have the power to end it, join us.

    The use of Cash Based Interventions (CBI) within CARE has gained momentum with country offices constantly expanding the scale and reach of their market-based interventions and cash programming within the humanitarian and development realms. Currently, CARE’s CBI span a variety of sectors, from Food Security to Education as well as multi-purpose grants. CBI projects are implemented in all the regions, with ECSA and MENA boasting the greatest number of cash projects in FY 2017. With this in view, CARE is looking to further solidify its cash programming capacity and learning, while also ensuring that its country offices can benefit from dedicated and strategic technical support which is context-specific, but drawing from a variety of CARE’s success stories.

    Given that ECSA (Eastern, Central and Southern Africa) region is among the leading regions in CARE in implementing cash interventions, a decision has been made to pilot a Cash and Market Regional Hub Advisor based out of Nairobi, Kenya, ECSA’s regional office. The Hub will aim to strengthen technical cash capacity, research, and learning, while bringing more visibility to the work done at both regional and country levels. Thus, the Hub will be established to address two main areas of emphasis:

    • Structured technical support; and
    • Creating and communicating documented evidence-base for cash programming.
    • To successfully launch and implement a regional Hub for cash programming, the following must be kept in mind:
    • Each CO has individual needs, there is not a ‘one size fits all’ approach/solution to be used;
    • Planning should include a focus on research and learning and documenting/sharing this research /learning:
    • A sub-regional approach could be considered within the broader ECSA region, with drafting of sub-regional cash strategies;
    • Emphasis could be placed on establishing focus countries.

    Responsibilities:

    • Establish Hub Structure
    • Provide Technical Support
    • Enhance Learning and Sharing
    • Develop Strategic Approaches
    • Other responsibilities as assigned

    Qualifications:

    • Bachelor’s degree or higher qualification on development studies/economics/social science/international relations or another relevant discipline.
    • Training in Cash programming and best practices (CALP or equivalent – CALP TOT level will be an added advantage)
    • More than five years of implementing and designing of CBI within different sectors as well as across several sectors (MPGs) (5+ years).
    • Experience in implementing market assessment and analysis, combined with knowledge of key tools (EMMA, RAM, etc.)
    • Experience in conducting training on CBI as well as other areas of humanitarian work/emergency response.
    • Experience in conducting analytical work in the field of CBI, including project evaluations.
    • Experience in conducting strategic work in CBI at a regional or global level.
    • Representation and involvement in CBI coordination structures, including cash working groups and consortia.
    • Knowledge of key initiatives in CBI (such as ELAN and NetHope) and their key areas of involvement at the regional/global level.
    • Experience in contextual analysis, qualitative and quantitative research and other assessment tools.
    • Understanding of gender issues and its linkages with market and cash response approaches.
    • Ability to present clear ideas, providing distance support, training and influence.
    • Strong analytical and conceptual skills in humanitarian programming, assessing emergency needs, market analysis, response analysis, and program design
    • Facilitation skills
    • Strong ability to work independently, organize work, meet deadlines, prioritize work under pressure, and coordinate multiple tasks
