Starting Date: 06/21/2019
The Bantwana Initiative of World Education (WEI/B) implements a School Related Gender Based Violence (SRGBV) project in Blantyre, Chiradzulu, Kasungu and Mzimba through EngenderHealthâ€™s Essential GBV Services and Prevention Project, funded by the US Department of State Secretariat for Global Womenâ€™s Initiatives (S/GWI). Over the past year, WEI/B has been working with local partners to support school clubs in 43 Community Day Secondary Schools across the four districts. The clubs have all gone through the My Dreams, My Choice-Plus Manual and conduct a number of awareness raising activities within their schools and surrounding communities to help prevent and respond to SRGBV.
Against this background, WEI/B seeks a consultant to design, analyze and author a qualitative program assessment to capture changes stemming from the implementation of the school-club intervention. Specifically, this assessment will explore how the SRGBV platform has contributed to positive changes in the lives of students (aged 13 to 18), their caregivers, and the school authorities, across multiple outcomes â€” including;
- GBV prevention and response mechanisms,
- Protective asset-building/social capital and life skills;
- Gender attitudes/gender norms; and relationships with families/caregivers; and
- Awareness and improved attitudes on SRGBV in school setting.
- Conduct a desk review of all relevant materials (program and literature);
- Work collaboratively with WEI/Bantwana technical staff to design and write the qualitative study protocol (including qualitative data collection tools and consent forms);
- Revise the qualitative study protocol (as needed) based on feedback;
- Participate in interviews for the local research firm/team (as needed);
- Review the data collection work plan developed by the local research firm/team;
- Review and analyse the transcribed and translated qualitative interviews collected by the local research firm/team;
- Triangulate the qualitative data with program monitoring data and literature to develop draft â€˜Most Significant Changeâ€™ study report;
- Revise and finalize qualitative study report based on feedback from World Education Inc./Bantwana technical staff and local research firm/team
- Proven track record conducting program evaluations.
- Expertise with qualitative methods of data collection.
