Terms of Reference for a Baseline Survey Empowerment@Scale Project in Kenya, Uganda and Nigeria

July 23, 2018

Hivos East Africa is seeking to hire a consultant to carry out a baseline survey for its Empowerment@Scale Project in Kenya, Uganda and Nigeria. The project is being implemented by a Consortium with Oxfam Novib as a lead partner.

Funded by the International Fund for Agricultural Development (IFAD), the project seeks to propose a mechanism for facilitating the set-up and professionalisation of Empowerment Learning Centres (ELC) engaging with IFAD-supported projects and other actors for capacity development on Household Methodologies (HHM) like Gender Action Learning System (GALS) maintaining key principles such as gender equality, empowerment, and participation.

By linking the ELCs into Regional Hubs and national/regional networks and a global platform, the Consortium will create a strong knowledge and evidence base to support scaling up of the gender transformative HHM. With rural women and men, the consortium will develop and package new approaches to HHM for working for instance with youth; integration into rural finance programmes; and for engaging with the private sector to achieve gender equality and social inclusion in rural value chains
