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.

    Kenya: CONSULTANCY – To Undertake a ‘Media Hits Scoping on Illegal Wildlife Trade in Africa’

    Organization: World Animal Protection
    Country: Kenya
    Closing date: 22 Jul 2018

    Background to World Animal Protection

    World Animal Protection, formerly World Society for the Protection of Animals (WSPA), is a global animal welfare organization with nearly fifty (50) years’ experience in safeguarding the lives of animals around the world. Our vision is “A world where animals live free from suffering” and we work to end the suffering of animals around the world through strategic campaigning and by providing evidence based lasting solutions. We aim at putting animal welfare on the global agenda and demonstrate that what is good for animals is good for the world. One of our key campaign area is animals in the wild where we take action to stop wild animals suffering: wherever that suffering is most far-reaching and most severe. We influence the decisions people make affecting wildlife on a global scale. We do whatever is needed to protect wild animals from being cruelly traded, trapped, abused or killed – because wild animals belong in the wild.

    Scope of Requirement

    World Animal Protection is seeking to recruit a qualified Consultant with expertise and experience in the domain of research and data analysis. The goal of the consultancy is to help us understand the trends of illegal wildlife trade in Africa as reported by the mainstream media. It is envisioned that the collated information will assist and guide World Animal Protection in identifying 5-10 most illegally traded wildlife species from Africa as reported in the media and also provide specific insights into trends of information relating to illegal wildlife seizures of live wild animals and their derivatives.

    The objectives of the media hits analysis are to help World Animal Protection to:

    Phase 1: Focused on the headlines and key search sentences of approximately 6,500 (already identified) media hits.

    1. Identify the top 5-10 species of wildlife that are illegally traded across Africa.
    2. Analyse and document the identified species (from above) in terms of numbers, volumes and frequency.
    3. Document the form in which these wildlife species are traded, whether live or in parts (skins, bones, teeth, skulls, etc)

    Phase 2: Focused on the full body of text from the same approximately 6,500 (already identified) media hits.

    1. Identify specific information in relation to seizures of illegal wildlife including live animals and their derivatives.
    2. Analyse and document the identified information (from above) in terms of numbers, volumes and frequency.
    3. List and rank countries in Africa that are most affected by the illegal wildlife trade, the key species involved and the importing countries.

    Period: The analysis will prioritise the media hits reported in the year 2017. But if time permits, the hits of previous years (2016-2011) will also be analysed.

    Methodological approaches:

    • The methodological approaches for the media hits analysis will be confined to the desktop review through internet searches. World Animal Protection will provide the Consultant with additional information and material relevant to the context of the study. However, the consultant will be at liberty to explore other sources of information that would further enhance and enrich the overall content of the media hit work.
    • Prior to the commissioning of the work, World Animal Protection team will engage the consultant with the view of firming up the inception report. The meeting will provide a platform for discussion and agreement on the parameters and the scope of work.

    Academic Qualifications of the Consultant:

    The Consultant being sought to undertake the research must have an MSc in either of the following fields; Wildlife Management; Research Methodology; Veterinary Epidemiology; or Environmental Science and/Management, from a recognised institution of higher learning. However, MSc students (or those who have recently completed MSc degree) in the above-mentioned fields are also encouraged to apply.

    Kenya: CONSULTANCY FOR BASELINE EVALUATION

    Organization: Association of Charitable Children Institutions of Kenya
    Country: Kenya
    Closing date: 02 Jul 2018

    TERM OF REFERENCE FOR BASELINE EVALUATION

    1.0 Background (About the Implementing Partner)

    Association of Charitable Children’s Institutions of Kenya (ACCIK) is a national network of registered Charitable Children Institutions founded in 2009. It runs child protection and alternative care programs in all counties in Kenya through its 350 member institutions.

    Our vision is to have CCIs in Kenya provide quality, child- friendly services in the best interest of the child.

    2.0 Project Profile

    Project Name: Protection of children from family separation, abuse, neglect and exploitation in 15 counties in Kenya.

    Project Aim: Promoting care and protection of children within their families and communities through capacity building, mobilization and communication on de-institutionalization and family/ alternative based care

    Project Objective : Children in Need of Care and Protection are supported and protected within their communities. This will be realized by ensuring that there is a progressive paradigm shift in policy and practice from institutionalization of Children in Need of Care and Protection (CNCP) to family based care/ alternative family care .

    Location: 15 counties in Kenya

    Project Period: April 2018- December 2020

    Implementing Partner: The Association of Charitable Children Institutions of Kenya.

    2.1 Project Context and Overview

    Children without adequate parental care exist in every country. However, knowing exact number of such children remains problematic due to lack of data and hidden nature of abuse, neglect and exploitation. In Kenya, the government estimates that there are over 2.4m orphaned children due to various causes and 48,000 are assumed to be in formal alternative care (NPA 2015- 2022).

    Vast majority of children not living with their parents are cared for under informal kinship care arrangement and Kenya is not exceptional. However, this practice is declining day by day as result of extensive economic and social changes. The formal family based care – foster care and adoption are not widely practiced in Kenya due to socio- cultural barriers that perceive them as western practices, existing myths and lack of awareness on procedures and required substantial qualified workforce to manage them among other factors. The predominant, quick and convenient child-care systems for Children in Need of Care and Protection (CNCP) in Kenya has been the institutionalization of vulnerable children at the expense of preventive assistance and support to the families at risk.

    The international and regional legal framework on alternative care that has since been domesticated in Kenya provide for a universal acceptance that children ought to grow in family care setting in place of institutions. However, realities in Kenya show that many children continue to be separated from their families as result of increased vulnerability caused by high poverty level, precarious family situations and other classified high-risk factors that may be social, cultural, emotional and political. At the highest risk of vulnerability continues to be children with special needs and street children. Furthermore, due to a lack of overall child participation, children remain inherently vulnerable because their voices continue to be unheard, unconsidered and undervalued in many local and national forums. Hence as we dialogue on care reforms we must strive to come up with innovative, localized approaches that will not only concentrate on removal and reallocation of children currently in institutions, but those strategies that must first and foremost be directed at preventing the perceived need of alternative care placements.

    2.2 Baseline study Objectives

    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.

    Scope of Work

    Goal and Objective
