    Background

    War Child Holland (WCH) is an independent and impartial, international nongovernmental organization investing in a peaceful future for children and young people affected by armed conflict. We support children regardless of their religion, ethnicity, social background, or gender. Our work is based on the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child. We strive to empower children and young people, while enabling adults to bring about positive and lasting change in the lives of conflict affected children and young people.

    WCH has been working in the Gaza strip since 2009, facilitating civil society organizations to provide child protection and psychosocial support services for children and families. Recently, WCH has committed to extending more focussed services to adolescents and youth, and in oPt is supported for the development of this new initiative by War Child UK.

    Purpose and scope of consultancy

    With support from War Child UK, War Child Holland aims to design a football-based youth engagement and personal development program for adolescents and youth in Gaza.

    The goals of this consultancy are to:

    1. Review and summarize current best practices in sports for development programs focusing on personal development and engagement for adolescents and youth.

    2. Assess the needs and current capacities in Gaza for a football-based youth engagement and personal development program

    3. Develop and deliver a project concept, full project proposal and budget for football-based programming for adolescents and youth in Gaza.

    The consultant will work under the direct supervision of the Country Director, War Child Holland – occupied Palestinian territory (oPt), with significant input from the oPt country management team and feedback from War Child UK counterparts.

    Suggested methodologies

    Communication with the oPt country management team: Engage with the oPt country management team, as well as counterparts from War Child UK, before and between each methodological step in order to share findings, feedback and readapt methodology as required.

    Desk review: Identify and summarize best practices/indicative examples of sports and personal development programs for adolescents living in challenging settings. Special attention should be paid to programs linking sports, personal development and related social services for adolescents and youth (e.g. mental health, social skills, peer relations and conflict resolution, gender, sexual and reproductive health)

    Fieldwork in Gaza: Work with the War Child oPt team to identify key informants. Through key informant interviews and focus groups with adolescents, develop a practical understanding of the interests, priorities and psychosocial needs of adolescents and youth in Gaza, and existing youth programs in Gaza. Participatory focus groups with adolescents will be undertaken with the assistance of War Child’s psychosocial specialist in Gaza.

    Deliverables
