Consultancy Announcement

Deadline: 10 February 2020


CARE is an international development organisation fighting global poverty with a special focus on working with women and girls to bring sustainable changes to their communities. CARE was founded in 1945, today CARE works in 93 countries around the globe and supporting 950 poverty-fighting development and humanitarian aid projects to reach more than 62 million people directly and 216 million people indirectly. We work with partners to achieve lasting results for marginalised communities.

CARE has been working with Cambodian since 1973. Today, CARE focuses on empowering particularly marginalized and vulnerable women in Cambodia. In 2017, CARE reached over 143,000 people in Cambodia, particularly women who have migrated to urban areas, women and girls from ethnic minorities and rural women who are denied multiple rights.

Today, CARE focuses on empowering particularly marginalised and vulnerable women in Cambodia, including urban women who are marginalised by occupation, rural women who are denied multiple rights, and women and girls from ethnic minorities.

The overall purpose of the “Know and Grow” (K&G) project is to empower marginalised ethnic minority adolescents, especially girls in remote locations in Cambodia, so that they have expanded life choices in multiple spheres, including economic, social and health. The project includes three supporting objectives that focus on improving the social status of ethnic minority adolescents, especially girls, increasing efficiencies in learning and 21st Century skills acquisition through appropriate uses of information communication technology, and healthier life options as a result of improved knowledge of sexual reproductive health and human sexuality. At this time only urban schools deliver 21st Century education, leading to a disparity in the quality of education between the urban and rural schools.

CARE is seeking the services of a consultant team who will undertake the documentation of the now and Grow project.The terms of reference available through: khm.procurement@careint.org.

Purpose of the consultancy:

The consultancy has two components

Component 1: Documentation of the K&G to include:

Creating a comprehensive retrospective of the project which will serve as a guide for future implementation by the government and other NGOs: a document that records the social, economic and political context the project was inserted into; successes and difficulties encountered during the project and reasons for them; their impact on outcomes being pursued, and documentation of what could have been done better and differently to effectively deliver 21st Century education in rural and resource poor locations.

Component 2: In consultation with CARE, develop a plan for the national and subnational education dialogue to be held in April 2020 in Banlung, Ratanak Kiri. The consultant will guide CARE by developing a framework for the 2-day meeting that will focus on the findings and recommendations from the project documentation piece. CARE wants to influence change and will take the opportunity in April to advocate for improved education outcomes in remote rural locations.
