Kenya: Consultancy to carry out a final evaluation of the Integration Action to End Child Violence programme
Closing date: 2017-01-19Application : Apply for the job
Closing date: 19 Jan 2017
GOAL has been operational in Kenya since 1995 implementing integrated child empowerment and protection (CEP), water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH), health and livelihoods programming. Since its inception, CEP programming has been the core of GOAL Kenya s (GK) operations.
In terms of GK s approach to CEP, the organisation aims to bridge the gap between policies and guidelines developed by the government at national and county levels, and programming for vulnerable children and young people at community level. GOAL works to bring evidence from community level (including community challenges and priorities) to inform policy development/review and roll out, service design and service delivery. Through partnership with local implementing partners (LIPs), and in collaboration with Ministry of Education, Science and Technology and Department of Children s Services (DCS), GOAL is currently supporting 151 schools, seven Statutory Children s Institutions (SCIs), 63 Charitable Children s Institutions (CCIs) and 1,800 parents to strengthen child violence detection, prevention and response mechanisms, reaching a total of 75,400 children. In collaboration with the MoH, GOAL and its LIPs have strengthened the operational and technical capacity of 29 Community Health Units (CHUs), benefitting 101,500 households.
Since 2012 GOAL has directly impacted the lives of 238,767 vulnerable children and youth living in urban informal settlements in Nairobi and hard to reach, disaster-affected populations such as pastoralist communities in Marsabit.
1.2 Integrated Action to End Child Violence Programme
The results of a 2010 Government of Kenya survey, titled Violence Against Children in Kenya 2010, revealed that violence against children is a serious problem in the country. Sexual, physical and other types of violence are all too common in the life of Kenyan children; over three-quarters of females and nearly 80% of males experiences a form of violence before the age of 18, most often perpetrated by those that the children are supposed to trust, in particular by parents, teachers, romantic partners, and others in authority.
In 2013, GK began implementation of a three year European Union funded Integrated Action to End Child Violence programme that sought to eradicate all forms of violence against children. GOAL Kenya, as lead agency, delivers a set of interventions in partnership with the following local non-governmental organisations; Life Skills Promoters (LISP), Mukuru Slums Development Projects (MSDP) and Horn of Africa Development Initiative (HODI). The operational areas of the programme include Mukuru, Korogocho, Kariobangi, Dandora informal settlements in Nairobi County and Marsabit Central Sub County in Marsabit County.
2.0 Definition and Scope
2.1 Project Objectives
The overall objective of the programme is to contribute to the eradication of all sorts of violence against children in extremely marginalised communities in Kenya.
The specific objective of the programme:
To improve the capacity of marginalized/vulnerable households, institutions, and communities in Nairobi s informal settlements and Marsabit Central Sub County to detect, prevent and respond to any form of violence against children, and improve rehabilitation of child victims of violence.
These objectives were to be realised through six results areas as follows:
Improved life skills for children, parents and families in communities affected by child violence. The program sought to equip children, youth and their caregivers with life skills to facilitate them to develop adaptive and positive behaviour that enable them to deal effectively with the demands and challenges of everyday life.
Improved income opportunities for parents and children in line with national and international legal framework. The action intends to achieve the strengthening of livelihood capacity through improved income opportunities for parents and children which has the ripple effect of reducing pressure on parents, reduced levels of domestic violence, increased support for victims and the development of positive coping mechanism for life changes. In the spirit of striding towards addressing the link between poverty and violence, the action is using training programmes to impart vocational, apprenticeship, entrepreneurship, and business management skills to young people and parents of extremely vulnerable children and youth. The participants receive in-kind capital for business start-up with access to income generating activities and also through the apprenticeship and mentorship programmes, their employability is increased manifold.
3.Improved capacity of target communities to recognise, mitigate and respond to child violence. This outcome is based on the premise that violence against children is not random neither is it perpetuated by strangers but well known individual(s) who are close and at times have personal ties to the victims . More specifically, the resulting effect of such violence is that victims of childhood violence engage in drug and alcohol abuse as well as risky sexual behaviour. The aim of the intervention is facilitate the community on how to prevent the different forms of child abuse, how to identify abusers and report abuse to the appropriate community structures. Owing to the broad spectrum of the community; the capacity of local leaders (chiefs, their assistants, community opinion leaders, voluntary children officers) is built to achieve this goal.
Strengthened capacity of schools and child protection institutions to mitigate and respond to child violence. This result focuses on supporting institutions responsible for safeguarding children in target communities. This support aims at strengthening the mechanisms of prevention, early identification and response to survivors of child violence. The institutions targeted includes; schools, Charitable Children s Institutions, Area Advisory Councils, Child protection and Gender desks in police station among others.
Enhanced referral systems and networks to support sustainable and effective rehabilitation of victim of child violence. The programme seeks to support existing referral mechanisms among service providers as well establishing such mechanisms at community levels where they do not exist within the structures of the DCS.
Promote coordination, participatory learning and knowledge sharing among key stakeholders to advocate for and inform child protection policies. The program seeks to support government in consolidation and implementation of child protection policies, dialogue forums between children and key stakeholders, documentation of good practices as well as sensitise media on child violence.
A baseline survey Integrated Action to End Child Violence Baseline Survey Report: Nairobi and Marsabit Action area while a mid-term evaluation conducted in 2016 showed the progress made in the implementation of the program. The specific objective indicators that were assessed are:
% of children, parents and families with improved life skills that enable the participants to reduce their vulnerability to child violence
% of beneficiaries who have secured employment (including self-employment)
% of community groups with increased capacity to mitigate child violence risks, and recognize and respond to child violence incidences
% of schools and institutions with increased capacity to mitigate child violence risks, and recognize and respond to child violence incidences
# of functional referral systems in the target areas
# of good practices and lessons learnt, disseminated to influence coordination and policy environment on issues of child violence

Once the consultant is engaged, the evaluation team will be expected to do the following:
