    Organization: UN Children's Fund
    Country: Papua New Guinea
    Closing date: 19 Feb 2016

    1.Nature of Consultancy:

    All forms of malnutrition persist in Papua New Guinea (PNG); for instance, more than four in ten children present with stunting (short for age). Wasting, in the same population, is determined at more than 10% (HIES 2009/10). Malnutrition has persisted for decades. Unfortunately, malnourished children have a high risk of contracting infections, thus, increases the incidence, severity, and duration of common childhood diseases, such as diarrhea, acute respiratory infections, and measles; diseases that start from communities. Worst, the malnourished risk death. Cumulatively, Pediatric reports show that more than 2,000 malnourished children have died in less than half a decade, regrettably, challenging efforts for improved child survival. Many would have already died in communities, due to ignorance about the problem or even lacking access to necessary specialized care. Any survivors live with permanent damages, which follow through generations. Yet, at community level, malnutrition is largely preventable. Moreover, children with wasting form of malnutrition can easily endure if they receive timely treatment and rehabilitation. The community has a major role in both preventing the problem occurring, or even timely identification and referral for appropriate treatment and care.

    PNG’s SAM management protocol for use by health workers was updated to be aligned with 2013 WHO standards. Training in management of SAM has been done for nearly 100 health workers in 15 provincial hospitals in the past one year. A cascade approach has started at provincial level, in Madang and Simbu, with plans to roll out to lower health facilities at district level. Collectively, the trained health workers are currently implementing SAM management in their respective provinces, and in two of them, up to district level. The services benefit both hospitalized cases as well as outpatients. Doing so brings the identification and treatment of SAM as close to the community as possible, reducing hospital treatment costs; facilitating early identification before reaching the worst stages, and increasing treatment adherence due to addressing transport, geographical and financial and security barriers to utilization of the services. We are yet to gain pace, with SAM management service demand, but importantly, reaching the most unreachable communities. To do so, there is need to strengthen and scale up IMAM services while involving I/NGOs and VHVs/CBDs/CBOs. There is no doubt that PNG’s recurrent shocks, not limited to ongoing severe drought calls for acceleration of the integrated management of acute malnutrition (IMAM) scale up plans. Thus, the consultancy seeks to;

    · Reinforce and scale up IMAM services with Health System Strengthening (HSS). This requires means that Provincial Health Authority must be engaged / actively involved in the process,

    · Conduct ToTs, face to face trainings, on-the-job mentorships, supportive supervision and mentorship, hence, technical capacities to be strengthened at all levels of the health system, and at community level,

    · Link IMAM and infant and young child feeding (IYCF). Lessons learned from the ongoing experience in the two provinces where IMAM services are starting/ already available /decentralized to be used to inform scale up plan in other districts/provinces.

    2.Purpose of Consultancy/Institutional Agreement:

    To support Papua New Guinea’s Provincial Health Authority to ensure that district health centers and communities have the capacity to detect and treat acute malnutrition among children under-five. The consultant, while working with Family Health coordinator and or Nutrition focal persons, where they exist, shall ensure that staff are trained and supervised, commodities and supplies for therapeutic feeding are available, data capture and record keeping is clear, and that VHVs/CBDs/CBOs are equally trained and supervised*.* Further, that there is well coordinated strengthened and linked services.

    Organization: UN Children's Fund
    Country: Montenegro
    Closing date: 16 Feb 2016

    1.Background and Context

    UNICEF Office in Montenegro started with implementation of the new initiative aimed at supporting Government to prevent and protect children from online child sexual exploitation. These efforts contribute to fulfil commitments made by the Global Summit We Protect Children and Global Alliance against Child sexual Abuse Online. The initiative is a result of the We PROTECT Children Online Global Summit organized by UK Government in London on the 10-11 December 2014 with the aim to strengthen global efforts to combat online child sexual exploitation. It brought together representatives from more than 50 countries, leading technology companies, International and National NGOs, Interpol, Europol, UNICEF, UNODC and the Special Rapporteur on the Sale of Children, Child Prostitution and Child Pornography. Participating countries, including Montenegro, signed up to a Statement of Action committing to take global action to identify and protect victims; remove child sexual abuse material from the Internet; strengthen cooperation across the world to track down perpetrators; and build global capacity to tackle the sexual exploitation of children online.

    The UN Convention on the Rights of the Child (UN CRC) and several EU directives all define children and young people as a vulnerable group who needs to be protected from certain media content.

    In particular, the article 17 of the UN CRC provides an international framework. Governments that have ratified the Convention are bound “to ensure that the child has access to information and material from a diversity of national and international sources, especially those aimed at the promotion of his or her social, spiritual and moral well-being and physical and mental health.” Towards this end, governments should “encourage the development of appropriate guidelines for the protection of the child from information and material injurious to his or her well-being.”

    In the digital age, the implementation of this article has become even a greater challenge. Internet presents new risks and opportunities for young people. Hence, children, parents and teachers need to be educated and involved in ensuring a safe and productive use of media by children. At the same time, police and social workers need to provide effective mechanisms for protecting children from harmful content online.

    In Montenegro, a middle-income country, at the moment, there is no data on what percentage of children and young people use Internet, how and what for. This is in line with the global situation, where most data that is available refers to children and young people living in the developed and high income countries.

    Obtaining relevant and reliable data and analysing it in-depth is necessary in order to address this issue effectively. In general, we need to know how children access Internet, where, how often, what kind of things they do online and who they consult with about their online experiences. Based on this information, UNICEF will support the development and distribution of an application for educating and protecting children from online sexual abuse and other kinds of abuse and violence online in general. Also, the research results will be used for planning future initiatives on this issue.

    Organization: UN Children's Fund
    Country: Malawi
    Closing date: 19 Feb 2016

    Background

    To tackle the urgent need for textbooks in primary schools, while simultaneously building on the initial success of school-based management from the Primary School Improvement Programme (PSIP), MoEST has started to engage in reforming the textbook procurement system with the objective of establishing a school-based procurement of primary textbooks.

    Today’s extensive problems of textbook unavailability in primary schools are largely a result of a highly centralised system where MoEST is directing all elements of textbook provision;

    a) Strict adherence to intellectual property rights of textbooks by the Malawi Institute of Education (MIE) means that there is no competition on the price or quality of textbooks.

    b) MoEST maintains all rights to publish these books, so that printing is centrally tendered and procured internationally, often leading to severe delays of books being delivered, commonly up to two years.

    c) MoEST headquarters determines how many books go to each school and oversees distribution based on textbook requirement information from the year preceding. This has been found to cause a mismatch for schools on textbook need and provision.

    Given these limitations, MoEST recently decided that the system requires a complete overhaul. Despite the book market not yet liberalized reforms of the current system are currently underway. A pilot project has been designed to review the feasibility of proposed reforms; primary schools procuring their own books, based on the Malawi curriculum, at local level.

    During the pilot schools will receive a textbook budget which they can use to procure textbooks directly at local book fairs. The books are expected to be in line with their requirements and distributed directly to schools. The role of MoEST will then revert to dedicating the textbook budgets and monitoring the system.

    As highlighted in the recently approved decentralized teaching and learning materials (TLM) guidelines, the proposed reforms on the procurement system has multiple advantages:

    • Availability of adequate textbooksat the start of the school year. Currently, schools receive books once every few years, at an unknown time; raising pupil-textbook ratios for several years, followed by oversupply of textbooks in years proceeding.

    • Textbook-supply will better matches textbook needs. Primary schools can choose which standards and subjects have the most urgent need for textbooks, based on the prescribed list of approved textbooks by DIAS.

    • Ensures textbook durability and ownership as schools have own ‘textbook budget’.

    • Leads to local economic development. Once completely implemented the textbook funds will remain in the community, supporting local book shops and vendors.

    Specifics of the pilot

    In conjunction with UNICEF, MoEST proposes a pilot that allows it to learn how best to institute this new system and offer a catalyst for change.

    · Firstly, it aims to evaluate whether providing funding directly to school PSIP bank-accounts offers a reliable and effective mechanism to provide access to textbooks, including for hard-to-reach schools.

    · Secondly, the pilot also aims to entice private booksellers to deliver directly textbooks to the schools in order to fill textbooks gaps in a timely manner and reduce the pupil: textbooks ratio.

    UNICEF will provide the necessary funding, which will be disbursed to schools through the system of vouchers by each district education manager on behalf of UNICEF. The vouchers will be disbursed at district book fairs to head teachers of the participating schools. Each school will receive two vouchers. The first voucher is 40% of the school’s total amount allocated and shall be paid by the head teacher to the winning bookseller at the beginning of the supply contract. The second voucher amounts to 60% of the school’s allocation and shall be paid after satisfactory delivery of the procured TLMs. MoEST will be responsible for planning and carrying out all logistics and financing of travel required by head teachers, utilising the pilot funds.

    At the district book fair, head teachers will inspect available books, select preferred titles and compile their choices of TLMs on a provided order form that matches the school’s initially allocated resources. Because during this period, no Government of Malawi (GoM) certified textbooks will be available from private publishers, the pilot will rely only on MIE books. In order to test prices competition and publishers’ involvement in the system, a limited part of the funds available for the pilot will be reserved for supplementary books to boost literacy and reading. To facilitate price competition in terms of school delivery, multiple booksellers will be asked to take part in the pilot. Head teachers will each select a bookseller, based on Section 81 of the National Education Act and the GoM public procurement regulations. The booksellers will then be responsible for acquiring the school’s chosen books and for book delivery to the school.

    Given that decentralised procurement of books in primary schools is a new system, extensive capacity building for the implementers of the new system has been planned to ensure smooth transition and effective implementation. UNICEF is thus calling upon interested parties to submit a consultancy proposals for the same.

    The overarching objective of the consultancy is to build the capacity of the implementers of the pilot project in 100 schools across three districts (Nkhata Bay, Dedza and Machinga) of Malawi and assist the MoEST in the logistic organization of the district book fares.

    The specific objectives of the consultancy is therefore to:

    · Develop a capacity building plan based on the pilots objectives and specifics.

    · Build capacity for system end users (teachers and head teachers; DEMs) and ministry officials involved in supervising and monitoring activities.

    · Ensure that the revised standard operating procedures for textbooks procurement are observed in the 3 pilot districts;

    · Review implementation guidelines and design a scale up strategy based on the outcome of the pilot;

    Country: Guinea
    Closing date: 21 Feb 2016

    Contexte :

    Télimélé est une préfecture enclavée qui comporte 14 sous-préfectures dont les indicateurs sociaux existants laissent penser que son niveau de pauvreté est inférieur au niveau moyen de la région de Kindia qui, avec 62.5%, est déjà assez bas et se situe pratiquement au niveau de la moyenne nationale de la population rurale vivant en dessous du seuil de pauvreté (63%). Or, la pauvreté a une forte incidence sur les capacités des ménages à faire face aux coûts de la scolarisation des enfants, en particulier des filles. A cela s’ajoutent des facteurs socioculturels pour expliquer la non-scolarisation ou l’abandon précoce par de nombreux enfants, surtout des filles. En effet, la priorisation des enfants à scolariser est majoritairement défavorable aux filles, la faiblesse des ressources disponibles venant s’ajouter à la survivance de traditions culturelles qui veulent qu’investir dans la fille c’est investir en faveur d’une autre famille, celle de son mari. La faible instruction des parents et particulièrement des mères est également un frein à la scolarisation des enfants et particulièrement des filles qui sont retenues pour des travaux domestiques ou pour être données précocement en mariage. Les mariages et les grossesses précoces, liés souvent à la pauvreté et au manque d’éducation des adolescentes en matière de sexualité, viennent interrompre la scolarité de plusieurs filles.

    C’est au regard de ces réalités que le bureau UNICEF Guinée, en concertation avec le Gouvernement de la Guinée et UNICEF France, a élaboré le projet d’Accélération de l’Education des Filles qui a été soumis à la chaîne de télévision française CANAL+. Celle-ci a accepté de le financer dans le cadre de son projet « Kindia 2015 » développé pour accompagner la Guinée dans ses efforts de progression vers l’atteinte des Objectifs du Millénaire pour le Développement.

    UNICEF Guinée a sollicité l’implication de l’ONG Plan Guinée qui a déjà fait ses preuves dans des domaines clés du projet, particulièrement l’approche communautaire en matière de constructions scolaires ainsi que la participation des enfants. L’ONG Plan Guinée a bénéficié du soutien technique et financier de son partenaire Plan Canada.

    Le projet PAEF couvre 9 des 14 sous-préfectures (Communes) de Télimélé. Il est conçu pour une période de six ans (2012-2017), soit le temps nécessaire pour tester l’impact du projet sur l’amélioration de l’achèvement du cycle d’études primaires par les filles, mais bien sûr aussi des garçons, l’expérience et la recherche ayant montré que les projets focalisés sur l’éducation des filles bénéficient aussi aux garçons.

    Le projet a des interventions à trois niveaux : niveau préfectoral, niveau sous-préfectoral et niveau communautaire/scolaire. En effet, certaines interventions visent le renforcement des capacités de la Direction Préfectorale de l’Education à piloter administrativement (coordination) et techniquement (formation et supervision) le projet. Les neuf (9) sous-préfectures[1] sont ciblées par le projet PAEF pour les pédagogies actives avec 4 sous-préfectures de focalisation[2] (comprenant 60 écoles/villages dont 18 bénéficiant de constructions scolaires en dur et temporaire).

    De plus, le projet couvre prioritairement l’enseignement primaire formel, mais soutient aussi l’éducation préscolaire et l’éducation primaire accélérée en faveur des enfants non scolarisés ou précocement déscolarisés.

    La mise en œuvre du projet est pilotée sur le terrain par la Direction Préfectorale de l’Education (DPE) à Télimélé avec l’appui de l’Inspection Régionale de l’Education à Kindia et la Direction Nationale de l’Enseignement Elémentaire au niveau central. La DPE bénéficie de l’appui technique de Plan Guinée qui, comme mentionné plus haut, a la responsabilité des activités au niveau communautaire, y compris les constructions scolaires, la mobilisation et le renforcement des capacités en faveur de l’inscription, du maintien et de la réussite des filles à l’école, et appuie la mise en œuvre et le fonctionnement des gouvernements des enfants. L’ONG Plan a fait sous-traiter, par l’ONG Association des Animateurs Communautaires de Guinée (AACG), les activités de mobilisation au niveau communautaire. L’ONG «Association Réussir Ensemble» appuie la formation et le suivi pédagogique des enseignants en relation avec les pédagogies actives.

    Justification:

    Le mécanisme de suivi-évaluation du projet prévoit, en plus de la collecte des données de routine pour le suivi du projet, des revues trimestrielles, semestrielles et annuelles, la réalisation de deux évaluations externes, l’une à mi-parcours pour permettre les ajustements ou les renforcements majeurs indispensables pour l’atteinte des résultats du projet, et l’autre à la fin du projet pour pouvoir en tirer les leçons à partager et à réinvestir dans le Programme Education pour garantir une accélération accrue de la scolarisation de toutes les filles de Télimélé et d’ailleurs.

    De plus, dans le deuxième accord de projet signé entre Plan et l’UNICEF pour la période 2014-2016, accord succédant à celui qui a couvert la période 2012-2014, il est prévu que « le projet sera évalué dans le cadre des deux évaluations externes du projet UNICEF-Canal+ », c’est-à-dire l’évaluation à mi-parcours et l’évaluation finale.

    Les présents termes de référence visent par conséquent à permettre la réalisation de l’évaluation à mi-parcours du projet UNICEF/Canal+ appréhendé à travers toutes ses composantes, tant celles mises en œuvre par l’ONG Plan Guinée que celles sous la responsabilité de l’Association Réussir Ensemble et de la DPE de Télimélé. Cette évaluation, initialement prévue pour le début de 2015, a dû être reportée en raison de contraintes liées à l’épidémie à virus Ebola que connaît la Guinée depuis décembre 2013. Les composantes et interventions du projet qui seront couvertes par l’évaluation sont notamment les suivantes :

    • Les composantes mises en œuvre par la DPE : le pilotage du projet à travers l’organisation des revues, des missions sur le terrain et des comités de pilotage de l’éducation au niveau préfectoral et sous-préfectoral (4 sous-préfectures) ; la formation des formateurs et des enseignants ; la mobilisation des autorités administratives aux niveaux préfectoral et sous-préfectoral/communal, ainsi que des responsables des autres secteurs, notamment la santé et la nutrition ; l’hygiène, l’eau et l’assainissement ; ainsi que la protection des enfants;

    • Les composantes mises en œuvre par Plan International : l’approche communautaire, particulièrement appliquée aux constructions scolaires et à la mise en place des CEC (Centre d’Encadrement Communautaire), au changement de comportement en faveur de l’accès, du maintien et de la réussite des filles à l’école, à la mise en œuvre d’innovations pédagogiques impliquant les parents et les communautés ; l’appui à la participation des enfants à travers les Gouvernements des Enfants ;

    • Les composantes mises en œuvre par l’Association Réussir Ensemble : promotion des pédagogies actives à travers la formation des formateurs et des enseignants, ainsi que le l’appui à la supervision pédagogique ;

    • le suivi et la supervision effectués parl’Inspection Régionale de l’Educationà Kindia, ainsi que la gestion des ressources financières allouées aux activités pilotées directement par la DPE de Telimele ;

    • La supervision des constructions scolaires effectuée par le Service National des Infrastructures Scolaires ;

    • La supervision et la coordination effectuées par le niveau central (UNICEF, Plan, Ministère de l’Enseignement Pré-Universitaire et de l’Alphabétisation) ;

    • La documentation et la communication sur le projet tant par l’UNICEF que par les partenaires de mise en œuvre du projet, notamment Plan Guinée.

    Objectifs de l’évaluation

    Objectif général

    Le but de l’évaluation est d’apprécier les grandes tendances vers l’atteinte des résultats globaux du projet, le niveau d’atteinte des résultats spécifiques et les réalisations qui y ont contribué, au regard des résultats et des activités planifiés, afin d’apporter les éventuels ajustements qui seraient nécessaires pour accélérer l’atteinte des résultats attendus à l’horizon 2017. L’évaluation servira dans la prise de décision des parties prenantes au projet, particulièrement le Ministère de l’Enseignement Pré-Universitaire et de l’Alphabétisation, l’UNICEF, Plan Guinée et l’Association Réussir Ensemble.

    Objectifs spécifiques :

    L’évaluation reposera sur une collecte d’informations quantitatives et qualitatives qui vont permettre de déterminer les niveaux de pertinence, d’efficacité, d’efficience, de durabilité et d’impact du projet, d’identifier les problèmes majeurs à résoudre et les opportunités à mettre à profit en vue de l’atteinte de meilleurs résultats. Plus exactement, les objectifs spécifiques visés sont les suivants :

    Pertinence :

    Approche/méthodologie :

    La présente évaluation, de type transversal, utilisera les approches quantitatives et qualitatives auprès des cibles et acteurs du projet. Pour la collecte des données, l’évaluation utilisera des techniques spécifiques, notamment les questionnaires, l’observation des élèves et le guide pour les groupes de discussions et les entretiens individuels. Les questions seront élaborées conformément aux indicateurs d’effet de la chaîne des résultats/cadre logique du projet PAEF. La collecte des données se fera par différentes méthodes et à plusieurs niveaux :

    Analyse de la documentation sur le système éducatif guinéen et sur le projet : l’analyse portera particulièrement sur le Programme Sectoriel Education, sur les études et évaluations existantes et pertinentes par rapport au projet, sur les documents du projet (document UNICEF – Canal+, documents des accords de projet, rapports d’avancement, etc.) ;

    Statistiques scolaires : l’étude reposera sur les données des annuaires statistiques et de la base des données de la Direction Générale de la Planification, des Statistiques et du Développement de l’Education, et sur une collecte additionnelle de données auprès de l’administration scolaire (DPE, DSEE) et des écoles en vue de renseigner sur la progression de la scolarisation et sur les ressources humaines et matérielles mises en place pour garantir cette progression ;

    Entretiens directs : des entretiens seront organisés avec les responsables de l’éducation (DPE, administration scolaire, les leaders communautaires, les autorités préfectorales et sous-préfectorales) et les partenaires du projet au niveau local (ONG, APEAE, AMEF et GVEC) pour identifier l’effectivité et les effets (positifs ou négatifs) des interventions conformément aux critères d’évaluation (Pertinence, Efficacité, Efficience, Changement, Equité/Genre et Durabilité).

    Focus groups : Pour cerner les barrières liées à l’offre (accès et qualité) et à la demande de services, y compris l’environnement socio culturel et économique de l’éducation de l’enfant, particulièrement de la fille, dans la zone d’intervention du projet PAEF à Télimélé, la technique d’animation de groupes de discussions avec les cibles du projet sera utilisée ;

    Evaluation des acquis scolaires des apprenants : cette évaluation sera réalisée sur les enfants ayant terminé le CP2 et le CE2 (donc ceux commençant le CE1 et le CM1). Elle sera menée dans les 4 préfectures dont les enseignants ont bénéficié de formations sur les pédagogies actives dès le début du projet, mais aussi, à titre de groupes témoins, dans au moins deux sous-préfectures dont les enseignants n’ont pas encore reçu la même formation. Les questionnaires seront établis et administrés par le Service National de Coordination de l’Evaluation du Système Educatif ;

    Visites d’écoles et classes : une observation sera faite dans les écoles appuyées par le projet pour observer les pratiques de classe, notamment en relation avec les pédagogies actives, et pour analyser le climat d’école et le climat de classe. Des écoles témoins seront visitées dans les sous-préfectures dont les enseignants n’ont pas été formés aux pédagogies actives. Cette activité sera conjointement réalisée par le consultant et l’équipe du Service National de Coordination de l’Evaluation du Système Educatif.

    Job Number: 494009 | Vacancy Link
    Location: Cote D'Ivoire
    Work Type : Consultancy

    UNICEF Cote d'Ivoire recruits an Individual Consultant (*Support to RWSN Forum 2016 - Marketing, registration & publications team)*
    Context :

    RWSN was established in 1992, by the World Bank, UNICEF, UNDP and the Swiss Government. Its mandate in the early years was on handpump technology. Over a period of 23 years, the network has evolved tremendously in terms of its mandate, key partners, membership and the interaction between them. RWSN has emerged as the global network of professionals and practitioners for rural water supplies. RWSN places a very strong emphasis on innovation, documentation, research and capacity building. With over 8,000 members from 148 countries, RWSN has benefitted from the digital revolution in terms of exchange. However, the network recognizes that nothing can replace face to face communication. The RWSN Forums, which are held every five years, are a key event in the calendar of the rural water sector. RWSN is currently preparing for its 7th RWSN Forum, which is to be held in Abidjan Côte D'Ivoire in November/December 2016.

    RWSN Forums have a unique character, with the emphasis on learning and sharing rather than showcasing, and a practical rather than political focus. The participants are mainly rural water supply professionals and practitioners. Where political leaders participate, they are encouraged to engage in the sessions and exhibition as equals with the other participants. The philosophy of the Forum can be summarised as follows:

    • Inclusive of different perspectives
    • Capacity – raising the quality of the submissions and thus improving communication skills within the rural water sector
    • Sharing of knowledge and experience among equals
    • Bringing field realities to the attention of decision-makers and funding agencies
    • Catalysing vibrant South-South exchange and networking
    • Accessible to all French and English speakers

    The working title for the 7th RWSN Forum is "**Water for Everyone"**. Five hundred participants from almost 50 countries attended the last Forum in Kampala in 2011. We expect about 700 participants for this event. The Forum will enable stakeholders from different organisations to learn about opportunities, trends and challenges of rural water supplies.

    Justification:

    The event will be run over three days, with an exhibition, and an additional day for optional field trips or specific workshops. It will comprise plenary and parallel sessions of presentations and interactive workshops as well as posters and short film viewings. An open call for papers, films and posters will be sent out in late 2015 so that the event includes local and national government, the private sector and NGOs as well as academic institutions. In order to have an inclusive event, people with varied experience of writing will have the chance to present. If there are submissions with potential, but that are weak in writing skills then support will be provided to ensure that the work can reach the required standard for the event.

    Purpose and Objectives :

    Under the guidance of UNICEF and Skat Foundation, the Consultant is expected to contribute and provide practical support to the RWSN secretariat and International Forum Task Force in the organization of the Forum 2016. This includes the following specific tasks:

    Organization: UN Children's Fund
    Country: Guinea
    Closing date: 21 Feb 2016

    Contexte :

    Télimélé est une préfecture enclavée qui comporte 14 sous-préfectures dont les indicateurs sociaux existants laissent penser que son niveau de pauvreté est inférieur au niveau moyen de la région de Kindia qui, avec 62.5%, est déjà assez bas et se situe pratiquement au niveau de la moyenne nationale de la population rurale vivant en dessous du seuil de pauvreté (63%). Or, la pauvreté a une forte incidence sur les capacités des ménages à faire face aux coûts de la scolarisation des enfants, en particulier des filles. A cela s’ajoutent des facteurs socioculturels pour expliquer la non-scolarisation ou l’abandon précoce par de nombreux enfants, surtout des filles. En effet, la priorisation des enfants à scolariser est majoritairement défavorable aux filles, la faiblesse des ressources disponibles venant s’ajouter à la survivance de traditions culturelles qui veulent qu’investir dans la fille c’est investir en faveur d’une autre famille, celle de son mari. La faible instruction des parents et particulièrement des mères est également un frein à la scolarisation des enfants et particulièrement des filles qui sont retenues pour des travaux domestiques ou pour être données précocement en mariage. Les mariages et les grossesses précoces, liés souvent à la pauvreté et au manque d’éducation des adolescentes en matière de sexualité, viennent interrompre la scolarité de plusieurs filles.

    C’est au regard de ces réalités que le bureau UNICEF Guinée, en concertation avec le Gouvernement de la Guinée et UNICEF France, a élaboré le projet d’Accélération de l’Education des Filles qui a été soumis à la chaîne de télévision française CANAL+. Celle-ci a accepté de le financer dans le cadre de son projet « Kindia 2015 » développé pour accompagner la Guinée dans ses efforts de progression vers l’atteinte des Objectifs du Millénaire pour le Développement.

    UNICEF Guinée a sollicité l’implication de l’ONG Plan Guinée qui a déjà fait ses preuves dans des domaines clés du projet, particulièrement l’approche communautaire en matière de constructions scolaires ainsi que la participation des enfants. L’ONG Plan Guinée a bénéficié du soutien technique et financier de son partenaire Plan Canada.

    Le projet PAEF couvre 9 des 14 sous-préfectures (Communes) de Télimélé. Il est conçu pour une période de six ans (2012-2017), soit le temps nécessaire pour tester l’impact du projet sur l’amélioration de l’achèvement du cycle d’études primaires par les filles, mais bien sûr aussi des garçons, l’expérience et la recherche ayant montré que les projets focalisés sur l’éducation des filles bénéficient aussi aux garçons.

    Le projet a des interventions à trois niveaux : niveau préfectoral, niveau sous-préfectoral et niveau communautaire/scolaire. En effet, certaines interventions visent le renforcement des capacités de la Direction Préfectorale de l’Education à piloter administrativement (coordination) et techniquement (formation et supervision) le projet. Les neuf (9) sous-préfectures[1] sont ciblées par le projet PAEF pour les pédagogies actives avec 4 sous-préfectures de focalisation[2] (comprenant 60 écoles/villages dont 18 bénéficiant de constructions scolaires en dur et temporaire).

    De plus, le projet couvre prioritairement l’enseignement primaire formel, mais soutient aussi l’éducation préscolaire et l’éducation primaire accélérée en faveur des enfants non scolarisés ou précocement déscolarisés.

    La mise en œuvre du projet est pilotée sur le terrain par la Direction Préfectorale de l’Education (DPE) à Télimélé avec l’appui de l’Inspection Régionale de l’Education à Kindia et la Direction Nationale de l’Enseignement Elémentaire au niveau central. La DPE bénéficie de l’appui technique de Plan Guinée qui, comme mentionné plus haut, a la responsabilité des activités au niveau communautaire, y compris les constructions scolaires, la mobilisation et le renforcement des capacités en faveur de l’inscription, du maintien et de la réussite des filles à l’école, et appuie la mise en œuvre et le fonctionnement des gouvernements des enfants. L’ONG Plan a fait sous-traiter, par l’ONG Association des Animateurs Communautaires de Guinée (AACG), les activités de mobilisation au niveau communautaire. L’ONG «Association Réussir Ensemble» appuie la formation et le suivi pédagogique des enseignants en relation avec les pédagogies actives.

    Justification:

    Le mécanisme de suivi-évaluation du projet prévoit, en plus de la collecte des données de routine pour le suivi du projet, des revues trimestrielles, semestrielles et annuelles, la réalisation de deux évaluations externes, l’une à mi-parcours pour permettre les ajustements ou les renforcements majeurs indispensables pour l’atteinte des résultats du projet, et l’autre à la fin du projet pour pouvoir en tirer les leçons à partager et à réinvestir dans le Programme Education pour garantir une accélération accrue de la scolarisation de toutes les filles de Télimélé et d’ailleurs.

    De plus, dans le deuxième accord de projet signé entre Plan et l’UNICEF pour la période 2014-2016, accord succédant à celui qui a couvert la période 2012-2014, il est prévu que « le projet sera évalué dans le cadre des deux évaluations externes du projet UNICEF-Canal+ », c’est-à-dire l’évaluation à mi-parcours et l’évaluation finale.

    Les présents termes de référence visent par conséquent à permettre la réalisation de l’évaluation à mi-parcours du projet UNICEF/Canal+ appréhendé à travers toutes ses composantes, tant celles mises en œuvre par l’ONG Plan Guinée que celles sous la responsabilité de l’Association Réussir Ensemble et de la DPE de Télimélé. Cette évaluation, initialement prévue pour le début de 2015, a dû être reportée en raison de contraintes liées à l’épidémie à virus Ebola que connaît la Guinée depuis décembre 2013. Les composantes et interventions du projet qui seront couvertes par l’évaluation sont notamment les suivantes :

    • Les composantes mises en œuvre par la DPE : le pilotage du projet à travers l’organisation des revues, des missions sur le terrain et des comités de pilotage de l’éducation au niveau préfectoral et sous-préfectoral (4 sous-préfectures) ; la formation des formateurs et des enseignants ; la mobilisation des autorités administratives aux niveaux préfectoral et sous-préfectoral/communal, ainsi que des responsables des autres secteurs, notamment la santé et la nutrition ; l’hygiène, l’eau et l’assainissement ; ainsi que la protection des enfants;

    • Les composantes mises en œuvre par Plan International : l’approche communautaire, particulièrement appliquée aux constructions scolaires et à la mise en place des CEC (Centre d’Encadrement Communautaire), au changement de comportement en faveur de l’accès, du maintien et de la réussite des filles à l’école, à la mise en œuvre d’innovations pédagogiques impliquant les parents et les communautés ; l’appui à la participation des enfants à travers les Gouvernements des Enfants ;

    • Les composantes mises en œuvre par l’Association Réussir Ensemble : promotion des pédagogies actives à travers la formation des formateurs et des enseignants, ainsi que le l’appui à la supervision pédagogique ;

    • le suivi et la supervision effectués par l’Inspection Régionale de l’Educationà Kindia, ainsi que la gestion des ressources financières allouées aux activités pilotées directement par la DPE de Telimele ;

    • La supervision des constructions scolaires effectuée par le Service National des Infrastructures Scolaires ;

    • La supervision et la coordination effectuées par le niveau central (UNICEF, Plan, Ministère de l’Enseignement Pré-Universitaire et de l’Alphabétisation) ;

    La documentation et la communication sur le projet tant par l’UNICEF que par les partenaires de mise en œuvre du projet, notamment Plan Guinée.

    Objectifs de l’évaluation

    Objectif général

    Le but de l’évaluation est d’apprécier les grandes tendances vers l’atteinte des résultats globaux du projet, le niveau d’atteinte des résultats spécifiques et les réalisations qui y ont contribué, au regard des résultats et des activités planifiés, afin d’apporter les éventuels ajustements qui seraient nécessaires pour accélérer l’atteinte des résultats attendus à l’horizon 2017. L’évaluation servira dans la prise de décision des parties prenantes au projet, particulièrement le Ministère de l’Enseignement Pré-Universitaire et de l’Alphabétisation, l’UNICEF, Plan Guinée et l’Association Réussir Ensemble.

    Objectifs spécifiques :

    L’évaluation reposera sur une collecte d’informations quantitatives et qualitatives qui vont permettre de déterminer les niveaux de pertinence, d’efficacité, d’efficience, de durabilité et d’impact du projet, d’identifier les problèmes majeurs à résoudre et les opportunités à mettre à profit en vue de l’atteinte de meilleurs résultats. Plus exactement, les objectifs spécifiques visés sont les suivants :

    Pertinence :

    les responsables du projet au niveau de Plan, Association Réussir Ensemble et UNICEF.

    Approche/méthodologie :

    La présente évaluation, de type transversal, utilisera les approches quantitatives et qualitatives auprès des cibles et acteurs du projet. Pour la collecte des données, l’évaluation utilisera des techniques spécifiques, notamment les questionnaires, l’observation des élèves et le guide pour les groupes de discussions et les entretiens individuels. Les questions seront élaborées conformément aux indicateurs d’effet de la chaîne des résultats/cadre logique du projet PAEF. La collecte des données se fera par différentes méthodes et à plusieurs niveaux :

    Analyse de la documentation sur le système éducatif guinéen et sur le projet : l’analyse portera particulièrement sur le Programme Sectoriel Education, sur les études et évaluations existantes et pertinentes par rapport au projet, sur les documents du projet (document UNICEF – Canal+, documents des accords de projet, rapports d’avancement, etc.) ;

    Statistiques scolaires : l’étude reposera sur les données des annuaires statistiques et de la base des données de la Direction Générale de la Planification, des Statistiques et du Développement de l’Education, et sur une

    collecte additionnelle de données auprès de l’administration scolaire (DPE, DSEE) et des écoles en vue de renseigner sur la progression de la scolarisation et sur les ressources humaines et matérielles mises en place pour garantir cette progression ;

    Entretiens directs : des entretiens seront organisés avec les responsables de l’éducation (DPE, administration scolaire, les leaders communautaires, les autorités préfectorales et sous-préfectorales) et les partenaires du projet au niveau local (ONG, APEAE, AMEF et GVEC) pour identifier l’effectivité et les effets (positifs ou négatifs) des interventions conformément aux critères d’évaluation (Pertinence, Efficacité, Efficience, Changement, Equité/Genre et Durabilité).

    Focus groups : Pour cerner les barrières liées à l’offre (accès et qualité) et à la demande de services, y compris l’environnement socio culturel et économique de l’éducation de l’enfant, particulièrement de la fille, dans la zone d’intervention du projet PAEF à Télimélé, la technique d’animation de groupes de discussions avec les cibles du projet sera utilisée ;

    Evaluation des acquis scolaires des apprenants : cette évaluation sera réalisée sur les enfants ayant terminé le CP2 et le CE2 (donc ceux commençant le CE1 et le CM1). Elle sera menée dans les 4 préfectures dont les enseignants ont bénéficié de formations sur les pédagogies actives dès le début du projet, mais aussi, à titre de groupes témoins, dans au moins deux sous-préfectures dont les enseignants n’ont pas encore reçu la même formation. Les questionnaires seront établis et administrés par le Service National de Coordination de l’Evaluation du Système Educatif ;

    Visites d’écoles et classes : une observation sera faite dans les écoles appuyées par le projet pour observer les pratiques de classe, notamment en relation avec les pédagogies actives, et pour analyser le climat d’école et le climat de classe. Des écoles témoins seront visitées dans les sous-préfectures dont les enseignants n’ont pas été formés aux pédagogies actives. Cette activité sera conjointement réalisée par le consultant et l’équipe du Service National de Coordination de l’Evaluation du Système Educatif.

This role is Grade E in the RO structure.

    Project Background:

    The Transforming Surge Capacity Project is a START Network project supported by a consortium of 11 humanitarian agencies led by ActionAid. Plan International is hosting the Regional Platform of this ground-breaking interagency project. With support from the Department for International Development (DFID) through the Disasters Emergency Preparedness Programme (DEPP), the surge project is part of an ambitious suite of projects launched by the START Network designed to develop decentralized approaches to capacity building and to improve the quality and speed of humanitarian response in countries at risk of natural disaster or conflict related humanitarian emergencies.

    The project is focused on improving the capacity of humanitarian agencies to scale up resources in emergency response - getting the right people to the right places, doing the right things in the shortest amount of time. It will achieve this by strengthening systems for surge capacity at national and regional levels to better complement international surge. It aims to build a more collective and collaborative approach to surge capacity amongst agencies in the sector. This collaboration will extend not only to actors within the NGO sector, but will also explore how civil society surge capacity can be strengthened with links to other stakeholders including the UN, private sector, public sector and academic institutions. The project is being delivered through the formation of coordinating national, regional and international platforms, the delivery of pilots to develop inter-agency collaboration, and through sharing good practice and resources.
