Kenya: Childline Kenya-Terms of Reference for Final Project Evaluation 2018

Organization: Childline Kenya
Country: Kenya
Closing date: 13 Jul 2018

Project Title: Strengthening the capacity of National Child Helpline 116 Service as a key component of the Child protection System in Kenya.

1. Background and Context

1.1 Description of the project

This project, entitled “Strengthening the capacity of National Child Helpline 116 Service as a key component of the Child protection System”, is a 3-year project implemented by Childline Kenya and funded by UNICEF from February 2016 to February 2018 with a no-cost extension to April 2018.

Childline Kenya is a Non-Governmental Organisation, which manages the National Child Helpline 116 in partnership with the Department of Children Services (DCS) in the Ministry of Labour, Social Security and Services. The Helpline is a 24 hour toll free service where children and concerned adults call in to report abuse and/or receive counselling and information on issues related to children. The Helpline is manned by professional counsellors who are all Degree or Diploma holders in counselling, psychology, education or social work. Their role is to receive calls, counsel clients and make necessary referrals for specialized services as relevant. Where necessary, Childline Kenya also rescues children who need immediate withdrawal from their current abusive situations.

Through the helpline, Childline Kenya is able to contribute to the Government’s Mid Term Plan II of Vision 2030 on Social Pillar on protection of vulnerable population in Kenya. The activities of Childline Kenya are also reflected in the Strategic Plan of Ministry on Labour, Social Security and Services whose objective, amongst others, is to keep children safe by providing a service where their plight is reported and acted upon. The child line 116 is also a critical aspect of the child protection system in Kenya and is a key component in reporting and referral mechanism as outlined in The Framework for the National Child Protection System in Kenya.

Specifically for CLK, this PCA contributes to its Strategic Plan 2013-2017 (Strategic Direction-SD 1 and 3); i.e.

SD 1: Support Government to provide quality child protection services through the national helpline 116 platform

SD 3. Provide technical support to partners, families, and communities for effective child protection in Kenya.

For UNICEF, the work of Childline Kenya contributes to all the four outputs of Outcome 4 of the GoK/UNICEF Joint Programme 2014-2018.

The services of child line 116 have increased over the years since its inception in 2006, moving from 9,798 calls received in the year 2006/7 to 1,152,409 in 2014. In total the Helpline received 4,645,552 calls from 2006 – 2014. The Helpline responded to a total of 2,606,318 child protection cases, with 31,330 being abuse cases. These include child abductions, murder, sexual exploitation, physical abuse and neglect where Childline Kenya moved in to provide support through rescue, medical care, court representation, provision of survival kits etc.

However, the work of Childline has faced serious challenges starting from 2013 occasioned by Internet challenges, power outages and technical problems with the Customer Relationship Management system used by Childline. This has been made worse by a high staff turnover due to non-attractive terms of service for personnel. Currently (2015), about 3,000 calls are received per day with approximately 1,000 requiring direct intervention from Childline Kenya. Approximately, 2,000 calls per day are either abandoned because of the long waiting period, or are silent or are not related to Childline services and are therefore referred to other service providers. At any one time the number of callers waiting on the queue is not less than 15 and at peak hours this increases to 30 and beyond. Of the calls coming through to the helpline only a maximum of 40% are answered due to low capacity at the Call Centre. This partnership sought to address these challenges hence increase the number of persons accessing services of the Childline Kenya.

At the same time and in line with the child protection system approach, this programme supported three other components implemented at County and community levels. They include:

i) Capacity strengthening of County Children Coordinators in six selected counties to manage cases that are from the child help line centre. These are cases for children who are found in their geographical jurisdiction. The work of CCC is to oversee and manage coordination of agencies giving services to the child and also support the building of a strong referral mechanism at county level. The process of developing the Case Management Guidelines is almost at its completion and UNICEF will work with CLK to support it implementation in the six counties

ii) Training on parenting skills in Siaya and Nairobi counties for parents accused of neglecting their children. CLK worked together with Court users committee and DCS to implement this component.

iii) Child online protection where CLK worked with Parent Teachers Association and boys and girls in 20 schools in one informal settlement of Nairobi and Nakuru Counties respectively. This is part of UNICEF initiate for child online protection known as “WePROTECT”.

1.2 Key partners involved in the project, including the implementing partners and other key stakeholders.

The project was implemented in partnership with the Department of Children Services. In addition, Childline Kenya, whose operations are hinged on partnerships, continued to work with both referral partners, development partners, community stakeholders and other Government institutions to implement the activities in this PCA.
