Kenya: BASELINE SURVEY FASRAT PROJECT

Organization: Equity Group Foundation
Country: Kenya
Closing date: 28 Aug 2018

About FASRAT Project:

FASRAT is a 3-year project whose overall goal is to facilitate agribusiness enterprises growth through trainings on agribusiness, entrepreneurship and financial education and value chain integration that enhances access to finance and market. 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 . Proficiency in quantitative and qualitative research methods is a key requirement . Excellent verbal and written communication skills in English and proficient in Kiswahili will be added advantage.

PART I

TERMS OF REFERENCE FOR INDIVIDUAL CONTRACTOR

Rapid Assessment, Adolescents, HIV/AIDS and SRHR

Assignment Title

Rapid Assessment: Adolescents, HIV/AIDS and SRHR in the counties of Kilifi and Makueni

Purpose of Assignment

The rapid assessment is intended to give county context in identifying equity and performance gaps limiting HIV prevention, treatment and care results and sexual reproductive health and rights in adolescents (aged 10 – 19) that would help define priority actions to accelerate and improve the quality of the county response to HIV among adolescents and hence contribute to the national response.

Location of Assignment

Nairobi, Kilifi and Makueni

Supervisor

Chief HIV Section, UNICEF Kenya

Duration of consultancy

25 days

Background

The United Nations Joint Programme on HIV and AIDS in Kenya, in an effort to ensure more focused and prioritised support to the national HIV and AIDS response, has set aside resources for supporting county level actions. Under the global Unified Budget, Results and Accountability Framework (UBRAF), the Joint Team developed a joint work plan to support the national response, in line with the Kenya HIV and AIDS Strategic Framework and in consultation with key national partners. A prioritisation of the work plan, based on an analysis of key gaps and priorities, was done to identify areas where the UN can add value within its comparative advantage of skill sets and mandates, while delivering as one.

One area which has been identified for focused support to counties is HIV Prevention among adolescents and young people (AYP) and Sexually Reproductive Health and Rights (SRHR). HIV infection among AYP in Kenya is still very high at 46% of all new infection in 2016. Young women and girls are most affected, contributing to 32% of all new infections. This is due to multiple factors including a major gap in comprehensive information on HIV and AIDS, early sexual debut, low condom use, low uptake of HIV testing and treatment services, and lack of youth friendly services for sexual and reproductive health and rights, among others. Moreover, young people living with HIV are facing poor treatment outcomes resulting in a high number of deaths. Other factors such as stigma and discrimination, high risk behaviours (e.g. alcohol and substance abuse, unprotected casual and transactional sex) and gender-based violence also contribute to the risk for HIV infection among young people. Moreover, certain groups of young people are also left behind in accessing HIV services such as young key populations (men who have sex with men, sex workers, injecting drug users), adolescents who are sexually exploited, young people in prisons and in refugee camps.

The activities to address this area will of course be tailored to county priorities as set out in County HIV and AIDS Strategic Plans (CASP).

Due to limited resources, the Joint Team together with Government decided on the selection of two counties to provide this support, based on set criteria that looked at the general epidemic; the epidemic among adolescents and young people; access to HIV testing and treatment and SRHR services; number of key populations, county HIV budgets and presence of other Joint Team programs. The two counties selected are:

1. Kilifi, which has an adult HIV prevalence of 4.5% and the estimated number of key populations is 4,676. The number of adolescents and young people living with HIV is estimated at 8,800 with an additional 747 new infections among this group in 2016. ART coverage among adults is 63% and although no breakdown is available for men, about 35% of men in Kilifi have never tested for HIV. The Joint Team therefore proposes to work in Kilifi because of the focus on key populations, in particular people who inject drugs, and the engagement of UN agencies already working in the county.

2. Makueni, which has an adult HIV prevalence of 5.1% and the estimated number of key populations is 1,966. The number of adolescents and young people living with HIV is estimated at 2,865 with an additional 831 new infections among this group in 2016. The estimated HIV prevalence among 15-24 year olds is 1.0%. ART coverage among adults is 56%. The Joint Team therefore proposes to work in Makueni because it is also a transport corridor hot spot.

Specific Tasks

· Conduct a desk review of relevant HIV and AIDS related epidemiological estimates and context for adolescents to illustrate the current situation in both counties.

· Provide background and analysis on availability and uptake of current HIV and SRH services for and by adolescents and young people. Identify key gaps and opportunities for improvement.

· Hold focus groups discussions with caregivers, adolescents and young people, including those most at risk (sexually exploited, engaged in sex work, injecting drugs and young men having sex with men) to obtain qualitative data on HIV related risks, availability and quality of HIV and SRHR services provided. Identify key barriers preventing access and use of services.

· Conduct stakeholders and beneficiary interviews including community leaders, health care service providers and representatives of adolescent and youth organizations to identify potential areas and types of involvement of adolescent and youth participation in the HIV/SRHR.

· Collate and analyse data collected and draft report with recommendations for action.

Expected Deliverables

· Compiled findings from desk review completed.

· Updated situation analysis on availability services for adolescents.

· At least four focus group discussions held with adolescents and caregivers (two in each county).

· At least six interviews held with stakeholders and beneficiary (three in each county).

· One concise report on key findings and recommendations that will help improve the lives and well-being of adolescents and young people as they relate to HIV and SRHR.

Supervision

The consultant will work under the overall guidance and supervision of the Chief HIV Section, UNICEF Kenya.

Collaboration

As the work cuts across a number of agencies under the UN Joint Programme on HIV arrangements, UNICEF will work in collaboration with UNAIDS and UNFPA on this assignment.

Duration of Assignment

It is expected that the entire assignment will be undertaken over a period of 25 working days as detailed below:

· Desk review and preparatory work for the assessment, i.e. stakeholder briefings and logistical discussions: 4 days

· Assessment of service availability: 3 days

· Focus Group Discussions, including preparation and data compilation: 6 days

· Stakeholder interviews, including preparation and data compilation: 7 days

· Report writing: 5 days

Total: 25 days

Qualifications and Experience

· Master’s degree in Public Health, Sociology, Psychology or other relevant qualification

· At least 5 years of work experience in the field of HIV/AIDS/SRHR and adolescents and young people with a focus on conducting assessments, surveys and research

· Previous experience working with UNICEF and other UN agencies

· Results oriented with strong organizational skills

· Cultural and gender sensitivity

· Excellent command of spoken and written English

Remuneration

The consultancy fees will be paid in two tranches:

25% after the submission of the first two deliverables (desk review, situation analysis on services)

75% upon satisfactory completion of the assignment.

Consultants are requested to develop a detailed assessment proposal which encompasses all costs including travel to and from Makueni and Kilifi.

Application Process

Applications should include:

· Proposal on conducting the assessment with detailed plan of work and budget

· Current CV/P11 form

· Contact details of 3 referees

Kenya: IT Consultancy for Online GIS Mapping and Dashboard Development

Organization: Danish Refugee Council
Country: Kenya
Closing date: 10 Jun 2018

1. Background and context

Danish Demining Group (DDG) is a unit within the Danish Refugee Council (DRC) specializing in Armed Violence Reduction (AVR) and Humanitarian Mine Action. DDG was established in 1998 and has been operational in the Horn of Africa since 1999. The focus of DDG’s work in the region is on AVR, including community-driven approaches to improving public security provision, conflict management and conflict analysis and sensitivity. Conflict analysis and GIS mapping is used to promote informed inclusive stakeholder dialogue with the view of collectively identifying and addressing conflict risks. DDG has a growing portfolio focused on promoting community sensitive border security and management in the borderland areas in eastern and western Africa.

2. Purpose

Danish Demining Group (DDG) is implementing a 30-month DFID funded project that seeks to facilitate a more community-focused, effective and accountable police architecture in South Central Somalia. This project resonates with the new police model, and will also support processes to make traditional conflict resolution mechanisms more representative and capable of solving civil disputes and aligning with the formal justice sector in South-Central Somalia. This project is an integral part of DFID’s Somalia Security and Justice Programme, and is also in line with the Somalia Development Plan on strengthening police and access to justice institutions.

One of the main objective of this project is to contribute to collective learning of actors working on security and justice development in Somalia and inform policy and legislative development on policing, police accountability and justice sector development at national level based on lessons learned from community-based interventions.

Overall goal: To contribute to peace and stabilization of fragile parts of Somalia by strengthening the security and justice architecture. Our desired outcome is a more inclusive, effective and accountable security and justice institution in Somalia, premised on the desire to see:

a) a federal state police force which is more effective, accountable and has increased community support,

b) Increased access to justice through more representative and able traditional justice mechanism, and

c) Working collaboration between traditional and formal justice institutions.

3. Objective

A key output of this project is the creation of a website that will collate and present the results of research carried out prior and during the project. The information on the website will be presented in multiple formats including downloadable documents and interactive GIS maps.

The main objective of the consultancy is to develop an interactive website incorporating a web-based mapping dashboard – with a functional front-end and back-end – that will visually present an online knowledge and monitoring system and support efforts by DDG to facilitate the creation of a ‘community of practice regarding lessons learned’ from agencies working on security and justice related issues inside Somalia. The online security and justice knowledge hub shall provide easy and dynamic access to information relevant to DDG, DDG’s donors and the community of practice and thereby complement regular knowledge sharing and coordination meetings.

The portal should have a direct connection to a responsive database to ensure the core staff can easily update the necessary data on a regular basis.

4. Key Responsibilities

The Consultant will work closely with the DDG Knowledge Management Officer in the development of the website as need be. The scope of the website development services includes but is not limited to the following:

  • The consultant will build a visually modern and attractive web-based interactive website incorporating a map (Somalia) that will be filterable with different parameters.
  • The platform will incorporate a dialogue forum to facilitate conversations both in English and Somali. This forum must require users to apply for membership as well as have features to moderate conversations.
  • Ensure the website has an incorporated content management system to enable Danish Demining Group team members control over content upload and management.

  • Ensure the website appropriately implements an Access Control Level mechanism to restrict access to certain features and content depending on user type for both internal and external users.
  • The consultant will develop a responsive back-end (content management system) where staff members are able to log in (with different rights when necessary) and update the data regularly.
  • The consultant will put in place modalities to guarantee security of the website.
  • A detailed filtering mechanism will be developed on the map to allow stakeholders to interact and engage with the various indicators. The map will capture and display data geographically.
  • The platform must be optimized for mobile compatibility. Moreover, it needs to provide a seamless experience across all devices and browsers.
  • The developer will provide training for core staff on how to manage and update the website.
  • The project will not be considered complete without the delivery of a detailed technical specifications document including the source code. The ownership of the interface and the source code will belong henceforth to DDG upon delivery of the project.
  • Design a user-friendly and fit-for-purpose front-end of the website.
  • The website can be inspired by already existing examples like:

o https://uchaguzi.or.ke/views/map/ http://www.gbvsomalia.org/

o https://www.humanitarianresponse.info/en/operations/iraq/education

o http://www.regionalmms.org/ http://4mi.regionalmms.org/

Kenya: Consultancy: Child Protection Officer – Kakuma Refugee Camp, Kenya (9 Months), Open to Kenyan National Only

Organization: UN Children's Fund
Country: Kenya
Closing date: 30 May 2018

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.

And we never give up.

Background and Justification

Background

UNICEF is the lead United Nations agency promoting the rights of children worldwide. To ensure that no child is left behind, UNICEF advocates and supports the realization of children rights to health, water, sanitation, education, nutrition and access to safe and protective environment. In Kenya, UNICEF works with the Government of Kenya and stakeholders to improve the lives of children and their families, reaching out to the hard to reach communities and children facing multiple deprivations. UNICEF equally advocates and partners with leaders and policymakers to promote and realize children rights. UNICEF Kenya is finalizing preparation of the 2018-2022 Country Programme, the core framework for partnership with the Government of Kenya in advancing the rights of children and women. The country programme aims to ensure that children, particularly those facing disparity and inequity, have their rights realized through cross-sectoral interventions that address multiple overlapping deprivations, ensuring reduction in stunting, improved learning, participation and protection and promoting social inclusion. UNICEF has prioritized refugee programming in the upcoming country programme, with a focus on ensuring, among others, that refugee children and population on the move are protected from harm and violation of their rights. UNICEF promotes child protection systems strengthening and the mainstreaming of strategies to protect refugee and children on the move in the national child protection system. Programming for refugee population falls under UNICEF humanitarian response as outlined in the Core Commitment for Children in Humanitarian Crisis and other emergency response policies and procedures.

Presence in Kakuma

UNICEF Child Protection work in Kakuma Refugee Camp entails partnership with UNHCR and relevant agencies in providing a safe, protective environment for unaccompanied and separated minors and vulnerable children exposed to risk of harm. Since the South Sudan influx of 2013, UNICEF has contributed to strengthening case and information management for effective child protection service provision through systems strengthening; capacity building of case workers and communities, innovative up-scaling of case and information management system and provision of supplies. In 2015, UNICEF in partnership with UNHCR facilitated a comprehensive review of the child protection case management system using a case management diagnostic assessment tool that was designed by UNICEF. The review process resulted in substantive review of the case management tools, protection and vulnerability assessment criteria and information management system. As part of this reform, Kakuma was among the first refugee camps in the world where the newly designed, web-based Primero/Child Protection Information Management System (Primero/CPIMS+) has been adopted. There currently is in place an integrated case and information management system that enables case workers to holistically manage a child’s case. With technical support from UNICEF, an objective, need based system on identifying children with protection risks, assessment of vulnerabilities and provision of support services has been enhanced.

Justification

Continued unrest in South Sudan, the Great Lakes region and Somalia has led to the displacement of thousands of people from their countries. In 2017 alone, about 23,288 people were registered as new arrivals in Kakuma refugee camp and the integrated Kalobeyei settlement villages. Children constitute 60% of all new arrivals. Overall, there are about 185,899 (98,856 male, 86,943 female)1 refugees in Kakuma and Kalobeyei, with children aged 0-17 years comprising 58%2 of the refugee population. Majority of the asylum seekers (57.3%) are from South Sudan, followed by Somalia at 18.5% while the rest are from other countries in the region, including D.R Congo, Burundi and Ethiopia.

The child protection case management system in Kakuma refugee camp is designed to facilitate rapid screening of children as they arrive at the border point or in the camp, identification and unaccompanied, separated and at-risk children, facilitation of comprehensive Best Interest Assessment (BIA) and the implementation of appropriate care and support plan to ameliorate identified risks and vulnerabilities. Displacement from their homes and often traumatic fright from home is an experience that results in psychosocial distress that requires individual and group based therapy, care and support. Among the common vulnerability and protection risks for children arriving and/or living in Kakuma/Kalobeyei include trauma/stress, exposure to violence, abuse and exploitation, family separation, threat of abduction, sexual exploitation and abuse, child marriage, Female Genital Mutilation among others. The assessment checklist in Kakuma contains over thirty protection and vulnerability risks that have varying protection implications on children and their families.

The current child protection caseload in Kakuma/Kalobeyei comprises of over 15,000 (38% girls) children, out of who 2,307 (31% girls) are Unaccompanied Minors (UAM) and 12,831 (37% girls) are separated from their families. Over 1,045 UAM are placed in foster families within the camp. Between December 2015 and January 2018, over 7,000 BIAs were conducted and a further 1,209 Best Interest Determination (BID) reports submitted to the Inter-Agency BID Panel to inform decision making on long-term protection interventions for children, including recommendations on durable solutions. All these processes and service provision tasks are facilitated by UNHCR implementing partners, with the Lutheran World Federation (LWF) being the primary implementing partner on case management. LWF has a pool of social workers, counsellors and refugee staff working in the child protection programme and who are hardly enough to manage the huge caseload. Consequently, there has been significant focus on strengthening community based child protection systems to ensure that at risk and vulnerable children are identified and appropriate and timely protection services provided. The priority for Kakuma, therefore, is to expand the gains so far made by ensuring caseworkers social work skills are strengthened to enable them to deliver quality services to target children. Additionally, the huge caseload requires a well functioning community-based child protection system to ensure that no at risk and vulnerable child is left unprotected. The purpose of this consultancy therefore is to provide technical support, coach and mentor partners on improving skills that lead to effective case management services in Kakuma, coordinate implementation of UNICEF child protection programme and further enhancing coordination with UNHCR and other partners in realizing results for children.
