    Terms of Reference Partnerships for Peace – Final Evaluation

    1. Introduction

    War Child Holland (WCH) is an impartial non-governmental organisation, investing in a peaceful future for children affected by armed conflict. Our interventions strive to ensure the fulfilment of children’s rights through psychosocial support, education and child protection programmes. We use creative methods to empower children, young people and their communities to become socially active and to achieve positive and lasting changes in their lives. WCH is both self-implementing and co-operates with a variety of partner organisations in 10 countries around the world. Please see www.warchildholland.org for further details of our work.

    The evaluation that WCH now wishes to conduct is two-fold. First, to evaluate ‘Partnerships for Peace’, a 3-year EIDHR-funded project on child participation implemented the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) and the Republic of South Sudan (RSS), which will conclude at the end of this year. And second, based on the findings of the evaluation, make realistic and feasible recommendations to assist WCH to improve its child participation programming.

    Partnerships for Peace
    War Child Holland (WCH) has been implementing Partnerships for Peace since January 2013. The overall objective of this project was for children and young people in the DRC and the RSS to realise their right to participation by meaningfully contributing to all decisions affecting them in order to fully support the realisation of their rights at every level of society. The specific objective was for civil society organisations to enable children and young people in the DRC and RSS to gain the skills and tools necessary to enable them to fully participate at the community, district, national and international levels, in actions aimed at increasing just, inclusive and democratic conflict-resolution and peace-building processes.

    The expected results of the project were:
    • Children and young people participate in monitoring and reporting on child rights situations in DRC and RSS
    • National and local systems, structures and organisations are established and strengthened that promote and protect children and young people’s rights.
    • Children and young people in DRC and RSS raise awareness about children’s [participation] rights through, national, regional East African and global networks, platforms.

    2. Objective of the evaluation

    WCH is seeking to understand better the effectiveness and impact of Partnerships for Peace, and to use these findings to improve its child participation programming. Specifically, the evaluation will fulfil the following:

    a. Make an overall independent assessment about the performance of Partnerships for Peace, paying particularly attention to the impact of the project based on the impact and outcome indicators as outlined in the log frame; and to identify key lessons that can be derived from the implementation of this project. This evaluation will address the following:
    • The impact of the project on the level and nature of child participation in the project areas, with different stakeholders (children, parents, community leaders, teachers etc), primarily focusing on the local level, but also examining provincial, territorial and national levels where applicable.
    • The impact of the project itself, as well as the resulting increased participation in their community on the children and young people in the project, with particular regard to:
    o Their knowledge of their rights and responsibilities.
    o Their ability to exercise their right to participate, e.g. increased engagement and meaningful participation at the family, school, community and provincial level in the making of decisions on matters that affect them;
    o An increased awareness amongst adults of child rights, and of the views and priorities of children.
    • The impact of increased participation on the participating partner organisations.

    b. Based on the findings of the evaluation, make realistic and feasible recommendations to assist WCH to improve its child participation programming.

    3. Timeframe and Scope

    The total number of working days for the evaluation should not exceed 40 days.

    The evaluator is expected to be available to start the evaluation by mid-October 2015 at the latest, and to participate in a child safety and security briefings shortly thereafter.

    The period where travel is feasible to each country is as follows:

    RSS between 30th October and 15th November
    DRC between 30th November and 20th December

    The locations to form part of this evaluation will be confirmed in consultation with the evaluator, and will depend on travel times, access and security. The project is implemented in South Kivu Province in DRC – in Bukavu/Ibanda, Kitutu, Kamituga, Walungu Centre and Bunyakiri towns. In RSS the project is implemented in Central Equatoria State (Yei County) and East Equatoria State (Torit County).

    The remainder of the evaluation period will be desk-based analysis and drafting. A first draft of the evaluation report will be due by 15th January 2016 and the final report by 15th February 2016.

    “A seasoned programme manager with excellent people skills”

    War Child Holland’s programme in South Sudan

    The Republic of South Sudan became the world's newest nation in 2011. Due to decades of conflict and mass displacement of communities during the war, access to basic services is severely limited and the country has some of the lowest rankings in human development indicators. In the end of 2013 a severe internal conflict broke out which caused the displacement of 1.3 million people.

    War Child Holland has been working in South Sudan since 2006. The programme has been focused on the consequences of decades of conflict and its purpose is to ensure that children, youth, communities and government are able to promote awareness on child rights, protect children from abuse, exploitation and all forms of violation of their rights. The programme has been achieving this by ensuring a protective environment for children and promoting access to good quality basic education in the Central and Eastern Equatoria States (EES). War child is not working in the heat of the current conflict, but the number of IDP’s are increasing in the States we are working in. IDP’s are included in the programme in the EES and the number of activities for this group should be extended. War Child Holland in South Sudan has its country office in the capital Juba and field offices in Yei and Torit.

    Consultant to support the procurement process for software and hardware for the programme, “Can’t Wait to Learn”

    Context

    Can’t Wait to Learn (CWtL) proposes new solutions to the urgent challenges facing education for children in emergencies. By utilising innovative technological solutions with a focus on serious gaming, CWtL builds on concepts which have been successfully piloted in Sudan (e-Learning Sudan) to increase the number of children with access to quality education in mathematics in three locations: Sudan, Lebanon and Jordan. The latter two countries have been introduced with the view to being replicable in other host countries for Syrian refugees. In addition, this project will introduce reading to the CWtL materials portfolio. The addition of Lebanon to the country portfolio will mean that CWtL will develop either French or English language materials. If French language materials are chosen, this will facilitate eventual expansion to French-speaking Africa.

    Developing fresh, interactive materials based on the national curricula, and creating effective partnership structures to distribute these, creates new opportunities for making education accessible to those children who have been excluded from education. In upcoming programme phases, CWtL will also explore how to integrate psychosocial support and life skills interventions into programme. Thus, increasing children’s resilience and thereby, preparing them for a positive future.
