    Closing date: 10 Jan 2018

    1-Contexte

    MdM-F est une association de solidarité internationale qui a pour mission de soigner les populations les plus vulnérables dans des situations de crises et d’exclusion partout en France et dans le monde.

    Les projets de santé sexuelle et reproductive (SSR) existent à MdM-F depuis de nombreuses années et sont développés dans plus de 25 pays. Depuis 2010, la SSR est l’une des quatre thématiques prioritaires de MdM-F et bénéficie de la création continue d’outils pour renforcer les stratégies adoptées, les modalités d’intervention et ainsi répondre au mieux aux besoins des populations. Dans ce cadre, le renforcement des compétences des acteurs de MdM-F est une priorité afin de permettre l’appropriation des stratégies et approches adoptées par l’association.

    La prévention et la prise en charge des grossesses non désirées (GND) est un des axes prioritaires de MdM-F en matière de SSR. Les adolescent.e.s et les jeunes (10-24 ans) constituent un public particulièrement vulnérable au regard de l’accès aux services de SSR et l’exercice de leurs droits. Le manque d’information à la sexualité, le poids des normes sociales, l’indisponibilité et l’inadaptation de certains services, les inégalités de genre ou encore l’inaccessibilité financière sont autant de barrières supplémentaires à leur accès aux services appropriés. Les complications de la grossesse et de l’accouchement sont la principale cause de décès chez les adolescentes. Or, les besoins non satisfaits en services de SSR restent très importants en dépit des engagements internationaux.

    Des besoins de formation sur la thématique de la SSR des Adolescent.e.s et Jeunes (SSRAJ) ont été identifiés au sein des équipes. Il s’agit notamment de renforcer les compétences des équipes afin d’adapter les services mis en place aux spécificités de la prise en charge requise pour ce public mais aussi de renforcer l’accès à l’information, à l’éducation sexuelle et aux méthodes contraceptives, en veillant à l’implication des adolescents.

    Pour cela, le développement d’un module de formation spécifique à la SSRAJ s’intégrant dans une formation existante sur la problématique des GND est prévu.

    2-Objectifs de la consultance

    L’objectif principal de la consultance est de développer un module de formation sur la thématique de la SSRAJ en lien avec la problématique des GND. Ce module devra s’intégrer dans une formation existante de 5 jours sur les GND.

    Il s’agira ainsi de :

    • Développer une session complémentaire à la formation GND existante, d’introduction sur la thématique de la SSRAJ,
    • Compléter les sessions existantes de la formation de 5 jours sur les GND avec les éléments relatifs aux besoins spécifiques des jeunes et des adolescent.e.s en matière d’accès aux soins et services de prévention et de prise en charge des grossesses non désirées.

    Le temps de travail est estimé de 10 à 15 jours sur une période de 2 mois et demi. Le budget total maximum disponible pour cette consultance est fixé à 6000 EUR. Ce budget devra inclure la traduction des documents produits en version anglaise.

    3-Profil recherché

    • Formation et expérience requises en formation et en ingénierie pédagogique
    • Formation médicale ou paramédicale souhaitée
    • Expérience souhaitée concernant la Santé Sexuelle et Reproductive des Adolescent.e.s et des Jeunes et la prévention et la prise en charge des Grossesses Non Désirées
    • Excellentes capacités rédactionnelles
    • Connaissance des projets de MdM-F est un atout
    • Maîtrise du français requise, maîtrise de l’anglais est un plus

    4-Calendrier indicatif

    • Date limite pour manifester son intérêt 10/01/2018 à 10h (hdP/CET)
    • Date limite pour une proposition complète 10/02/2018 à 10h (hdP/CET)
    • Date souhaitée pour le démarrage de la consultance 10/03/2018

    Project to be evaluated:

    Title: Community InterAction and Local Development 2014-2018

    Period: 01 April 2014 - 31 March 2018

    Field of activity: Education & Income, Food Security & Markets

    Country: Bosnia and Herzegovina (B&H)

    1.Call for Proposals

    Caritas Switzerland (hereafter called Caritas) is looking for proposals from consultants in line with the below Terms of Reference (ToRs).

    2.Context and Background

    ContextSince 1995, Caritas has been engaged in projects concerning humanitarian aid, reconstruction of houses and infrastructure, agriculture, energy efficiency, and social projects in different regions of B&H. The engagement of Caritas in the Upper Drina Region (UDR) began in 2002 with reconstruction projects for returnees’ homes, followed by projects in the agricultural sector. In 2014, Caritas decided to focus its efforts in this region on the implementation of projects in agriculture and peace building.

    Background

    Caritas intends to commission a final evaluation for the project “Community InterAction and Local Development 2014-2018”. Additionally, it is envisaged to conduct and assessment for developing a full project proposal for a follow-up project with a duration between 3 to 4 years. As the still ongoing intervention, its planned evaluation and the newly planned project are covering more or less the same target area and target group, it is envisaged to combine field work for evaluation and assessment for the new project.

    3.The Evaluation

    3.1Purpose and Goals of the Evaluation3.1.1 Overall Objective of the Evaluation**

It should give insight into the achievements and/or shortcomings of the chosen approaches and methods. It should assess the capacities and performance of the involved partner organization.
    3.1.2 Time Period and Components Covered

    The evaluation covers the time period from 01 April 2014 to 30 September 2017, but also takes into account the project activities to be implemented by the end of the project (March 2018). The evaluation covers all three components of the project: community building, peace building, and good governance.
    3.1.3 Introduction and Background

    Background of the Project to be evaluated

    More than 20 years after the 1992-1995 war in B&H, the main drivers of conflict remain unaddressed and ethnic divisions persist. In order to build peace, the lack of positive inter-ethnic interaction, dialogue, and trust needs to be addressed. The young generation has to be supported to become agents of change rather than dividers. Therefore, a project called “Community InterAction and Local Development 2014-2018” pursues the overall objective to contribute to positive peace and community development in B&H. Therefore, the project works on three components:

    • To improve inter-ethnic relationships (peace building component),
    • To increase citizen activism (community building component)
    • To ensure that local governance structures contribute to these developments (complementary good governance component).
      Strategic Goal of the Project to be evaluated

    To contribute positively to peace and community development.

    • What were the major factors influencing the achievement or non-achievement of the objectives?

    4.Development of a Follow-up Intervention

    2. Income and Education (basic education support and VET/TVET and promotion of entrepreneurship and

    3. Climate Change and Disaster Risk Reduction (climate change mitigation and climate change adaptation as well as DRR projects or components streamlined into programmes (e.g. agriculture programme)).
