Consultancy for an IMPACT STUDY / Alternative models for Child Protection: terre des hommes German

Deadline: 15 September 2016

Community responses to provide safe spaces for Orphan and Vulnerable Children – The impact of HIV and Aids on families and particularly on children is paramount. The manifold effects of the disease are still dominant and contributing for a decline in the key indicators of human development and reversing the social and economic gains previously mentioned. The loss of the social and family safety nets by orphaned children coupled with poverty contribute greatly to the high rates of gender based violence and child negligence and exploitation in most countries in the region.

Terre des hommes Germany is a child-aid organization that raises funds from citizens, foundations and corporations and partner with local non-profit organizations to raise awareness and address the causes of poverty and injustice affecting children and youth in Southern Africa.

A number of terre des hommes partners in Southern Africa have been working for more than eight years with communities, local leaders, families and other duty bearers to forge alternative ways to address the above-mentioned challenges. The present study intends to carry out an impact assessment of projects in Zimbabwe (Shurugwi District), Mozambique (Matola – Maputo Province) and South Africa (Nelson Mandela Bay).

Core requirement
Extensive experience in research and specifically conducting impact evaluations, with a focus on documenting best practices and approaches for learning and replication purposes. A sample of a previous impact study will be requested, as well as references. A multi-national team of consultants will be encouraged (Zimbabwe, Mozambique, South Africa).
