2.            Introduction

Save the Children operates across all regions of Ethiopia with a vision of creating a world in which every child attains the right to survival, protection, development and participation. Its mission is to inspire breakthroughs in the way the world treats children, and to achieve immediate and lasting change in their lives.

Save the Children’s child protection programs focuses on four sub themes: Appropriate Care; Protection of Children against Violence (including harmful traditional practices); Children and Harmful Work; Child Protection Systems to respond to the protection concerns of children. It works very closely with other sectors such as education, health and livelihoods.

As part of the child protection program, Save the Children Ethiopian Country Office received grant from Save the Children Italy (SCI) to implement Child Protection and Early Child Care Development (ECCD) integrated Project entitled “Promote the Survival and Development of Pastoralist Children in South Omo Zone of Ethiopia” .

 

The project has been implemented in Southern Nations, Nationalities and People’s Region (SNNPR), South Omo zone, Hamer, Dassenech and Nyangatom wordas. The current phase of the project implementation started on 7 th of March 2019 and ends 28 th of February 2022.

 

Conducting final evaluation is among the planned activities to be accomplished at the end of project implementation. Thus, this Term of Reference (ToR) is prepared to conduct the project external final evaluation, whose aim is to assess the project results and issue recommendations for future project design and implementation.

3.            Background of the Project

Save the Children has been implementing the project “Promote the Survival and Development of Children in South Omo Zone of Ethiopia” since January 2015. The first phase of the project was implemented from January 2015 to February 2019. The current/second phase of the project started in March 2019 and will end in February 2022.

The current phase of the project built on the first phase and it is integrated with the Ethiopia/Norad supported Education Project, which is being implemented in Amhara Region and Addis Ababa City Administration.

The project aims to address the underlying socio-cultural and economic factors affecting the lives of boys, girls and young women in marginalized communities of the South Omo Zone. It also aims to enhance access to services for highly vulnerable children such as boys and girls with disability, abandoned children, children at risk of HTP and children affected by negative socio-cultural norms. 

The project contributes to the government’s commitment to end early marriage and Female Genital Mutilation (FGM) in Ethiopia by the year 2025. It also planned to contribute to achieve SC Ethiopia child protection strategic priority (SG#1: Communities, families and services become responsive to protect children from sexual and gender based violence (GBV)) and education sector strategic priorities (SG #2: Increased prioritization and Strengthened delivery systems for quality early childhood care and education targeting children of 4 & 5 years of age).

The project also contributes to Save the Children‘s breakthroughs: be protected, survival and learning i) by protecting children from violence, abuse and exploitation that they experience in their communities, ii) by facilitating access to Early Childhood Care and Development (ECCD) programs and iii) by supporting their emotional, physical and cognitive development.

The Project Overall Objective/Impact: Boys and girls, including those living without appropriate care, enjoy the right to protection from abuse, exploitation, violence and neglect through well-functioning child protection systems and early childhood care and education

The Project Specific Objectives/Outcomes:

1)   Communities take over project activities and start to respond to issues of violence, abuse neglect and exploitation against children

2)   Strengthened and coordinated national and community-based child protection mechanisms, prevent, identify and respond to violence against girls and boys

3)   Duty bearers, civil society and communities are engaged in ensuring quality education, including psychological wellbeing and safety of girls and boys in and around schools

4)   Increased access to quality and inclusive pre-primary education for vulnerable and promoted better child development outcomes of 4-6 aged children in the three targeted woredas in South Omo

 

The Project Target Groups: The project has been directly targeting most deprived children such as boys and girls at risk and affected by Harmful Traditional Practices (HTPs) including survivors of ‘Mingi’, early/child marriage and Female Genital Mutilation (FGM) and other Sexual and Gender Based Violence (SGBV), boys and girls with disability, abandoned boys and girls, girls and boys that are denied schooling, boys and girls living without appropriate care. Families, traditional/influential community leaders, and school community groups, government sector offices, law enforcement bodies are also among the target groups that have been reached through the project. Overall, the project directly targeted to reach about 14,486 children and 6,231 adults by the end of the project period.

 

Project Target Area: The Project is implemented in Southern Nations, Nationalities and People’s Region (SNNPR), South Omo Zone, three Woredas: Hamer, Dassenech and Ngnangatom through Save the Children Ethiopia South West Hub directly. The total targeted kebleles covered by the project are 37.

Ü  Strengthened capacity and coordination of multi-stakeholder including government and non-government duty bearers, psychosocial service providers, community based organizations and CPCs to prevent, monitor and respond to violence against children in the project targeted woredas

Ü  School based child protection mechanisms are strengthened

Ü  Increased access to quality and inclusive pre-primary learning environment for 4-6 aged children in the three targeted woredas

Ü  Children age 4-6 improve their development outcomes and are better prepared to transit successfully to 1 st Grade

Ü  Local communities and institutions are empowered to promote equitable and inclusive access to pre-primary education in the three targeted woredas 

4.            Purpose and Objectives of the Final Evaluation

4.1 Purpose of the Final Evaluation

The final evaluation will serve the dual objectives of accountability and learning. It will build upon the baseline study conducted at the start of the project. The final evaluation main objectives are:

Ø  to assess if the project has achieved its project specific objectives/outcomes by measuring selected project’s outcome indicators against baseline values (see Annex 3);

Ø  to assess the Project’s against a number of selected criteria (see section 5 below)

Ø  to issue recommendations in order to suggest strategies for future project design and implementation.

 

4.2 Audience of the Evaluation

The findings of this final evaluation will be used by key actors for their respective learning needs and decision making. Save the Children Italy will use the findings to inform a possible next phase of the project to replicate and extend promising achievements. Save the Children Ethiopia will use the findings and lessons learned from the evaluation in other projects in similar settings as well as to inform the design of future projects. Furthermore, local, regional and national government will use the final evaluation to inform policies and strategies related to children’s protection and pre-primary education.

4.3 Scope of the Evaluation

The scope of the final evaluation is the project in South Omo Zone implemented with Save the Children Italy funding. Geographically, the Evaluation is restricted in the geographic area of South Omo, and in the three Woredas of Hammer, Dassenech and Nyangathom, SNNPR, Ethiopia. The final evaluation is not expected to include also the interventions funded by Norad that are implemented in both South Omo Zone of SNNP Region, Amhara Region and Addis Ababa City Administration.  The reasons being that the two projects have different starting dates and have different baseline assessments.

5.            Key Evaluation Questions

The Final Evaluation will be guided by the following criteria and key evaluation questions:

6.            Methodology

The detailed approach and methodology will be designed by the consultant during the inception phase. It should:

•      Employ the relevant evaluation criteria above

•      Apply an evaluation matrix geared towards addressing the key evaluation questions (see Annex 4)

•      Ensure use of primary and secondary data and mixed methods (both qualitative and quantitative)

•      Ensure the use of participatory methods to engage with children and community members in evaluation.

•      The qualitative methods for data collection should use a purposeful sampling strategy. For the measurements of the project indicators at specific objective/outcome level, the samples need to be coherent with the baseline sampling strategy in order for a fair and accurate comparison to be made.

•      The interviewees shall be selected from the project target/intervention Woredas and should include Woreda level government sector offices (Education, WCA, Justice, Police and Health Offices), influential community/clan leader, children at risk and affected by HTPs, parents or guardian of children, students, school teachers, ECCD facilitators health extension workers, community based structures members and law enforcement bodies.

•      Ethical procedures should be integral part of the Evaluation and child friendly approaches should be employed. The consultant should adhere to procedures like informed consent/assent, anonymity, confidentiality; follow Save the Children’s Child Safeguarding Policy and Code of Conduct, ensuring appropriate, safe and non-discriminatory participation.

During the inception phase, the main sources of date will be shared with the consultant. The consultant will be expected to critically assess data availability, quality and gaps. This assessment will inform the methodology and the choice of evaluation methods. Any limitations should be stated clearly in the inception report. The consultant is expected to propose a detailed evaluation methodology in the Inception report.

7.            Timeline/Implementation Plan

The final evaluation is expected to be completed during a period of 60 working days.  The expected start date of the evaluation is September 2021 and the data collection phase is expected to be undertaken during October/November 2021.

10.        Technical Proposal Review Criteria 

Generic Criteria

There are common (generic) criteria for technical proposal review developed by Save the Children Procurement Department. The Technical Proposal weighs 60 % and each criterion has its description as well as value as follows:

 

I.              Understanding of the ToR (7)

This criterion will cover the consultant’s understanding and reflection on the Terms of Reference (ToR). It considers how deep the consultant understood the work including the scope. How such understanding is explained and linked with the subsequent criteria (e.g., with the approach/methodology, team composition, etc.).  How consistent is the understanding of the ToR reflected in the various sections of the Technical Proposal?

 

II.            Experience of the Firm in related work (15)

This captures the experiences of the consultancy firm in terms of having specific and hands-on experience in conducting evaluation and other related assessments related with child protection interventions. This will make a strong component of the criteria.

 

III.           Professional team composition and qualifications (20)

The consultancy assignment requires qualified team members who possess at least Masters Level Sociology, Psychology, Human rights, Social Work, Law, Development Studies, or other relevant area. Strong emphasis will be paid to team compositions. Your response will be assessed on whether the skills and experience of key personnel adequately covers all areas of expertise and experience required.

 

IV.           Methodology (quality of assessment tools) (13)

The consultancy firm should clearly describe the chosen approach and methodology for conducting the evaluation. A strong justification should be provided for the suggested approach and methodology. Your proposal will be assessed on the following criteria:

·         The proposal clearly articulates the objective(s) of the evaluation.

·         The proposed approach and methodology is robust, appropriate and indicates that it will achieve the requirements of the evaluation.

 

V.            Time frame/Work plan (5)

The assumption is to come up with feasible and cost effective approach as per the time frame suggested in this ToR.  There might be a number of ways to deliver tasks within the proposed timeframe, e.g., by deploying relevant (in terms of qualification and experience) and adequate (in terms of number) teams for the work.
