THE CHALLENGE

ECW is seeking proposals for bold ideas to help address the billion-dollar finance gap for education in emergencies and protracted crises. Ideas should be substantive and have the potential to raise at least US$50 million per year continually (or US$100 million total once, if a onetime effort). Sources should allow the provision of grant funding as ECW is committed to providing equal and free education.

GOAL AND DELIVERABLE

The goal of the Challenge is to surface new and actionable ideas for large scale resource mobilization efforts with a real potential for implementation. Deliverable of the Challenge will be a unique idea and a business plan for implementation.

THE PRIZE

ECW will award up to three prizes of up to US$25,000 to those who can offer the best, most innovative and credible idea and a business plan for resource mobilization. In addition to the cash prize, ECW may consider supporting the implementation of winning proposals with seed funding.

TIMELINE

  • Learn more during a webinar in July, 2018
  • Submit your idea by July 31, midnight in New York.

  • Continue to work with us and bring education to children and youth in emergencies.

IDEAS WE ARE LOOKING FOR

  1. Bold and large-scale: Ideas should be substantive and have the potential to raise at least US$50 million per year if they are for a continual resource mobilization effort or US$100 million total once, if they for a onetime resource mobilization effort)
  2. Grant funding: Education in emergencies and protracted crisis requires grant funding as ECW supports children and youth with free education. The proposed idea should mobilize resources that lend themselves to finance free education.
  3. Funding for education in emergencies and protracted crisis: Resources mobilized should be without restrictions to finance education in emergencies and protracted crisis in countries affected by conflict and war, natural disasters, pandemics, or refugee crisis and internal displacement.
  4. New sources of finance: ECW is seeking to identify and tap non-traditional sources of financing beyond bilateral donor contributions and mainstream philanthropy. Proposed ideas should not compete with or crowd out existing funding for education in emergencies.
  5. ECW mission and humanitarian principles: Resources mobilized should not conflict with the ECW vision to create a world where all children and youth affected by crisis can learn free of cost, in safety and without fear in order to grow and reach the full potential. They also should not conflict with the humanitarian principles of humanity, neutrality, impartiality, and independence

Rwanda: Nutrition Consultant – Call for Proposals

Organization: Plan International
Country: Rwanda
Closing date: 19 Jun 2018

USAID/Hinga Weze requires the services of a nutrition expert or firm with nutrition expertise (hereafter called the Consultant) to support the assessment and updating of the District Plans to Eliminate Malnutrition (DPEM) in the 10 target districts of Feed the Future/Hinga Weze. This work will include a) assessing the existing plans and identifying gaps; b) conducting stakeholder consultations to understand the implementing environment and areas for improvement; c) working with district stakeholders to lead the updating process of the DPEMs with a focus on integrating nutrition-sensitive agriculture, access to markets and food security/nutrition; and d) in light of these processes, recommending interventions and opportunities for the Hinga Weze Activity to contribute to the reduction in the stunting rate among children under two in the targeted districts.

The Consultant will be recruited by Plan International USA, and he/she will work under the supervision of the Hinga Weze team. The consultancy is expected to take place from June 25th to September 30th, 2018. The review and update will be completed in two phases: Phase 1: Update of the Nyamagabe and Gatsibo DPEMs (deadline: July 31, 2018), Phase 2: update of the DPEMs in Kayonza, Bugesera, Ngoma (Eastern Province); Nyabihu, Rutsiro, Ngororero, Nyamasheke, Karongi (Western Province) (deadline: September 30, 2018).

Plan International USA invites interested Individual Consultant(s) or Consultancy firm(s) to submit their expressions of interest by June 19, 2018.

Project Summary

Feed the Future Rwanda Hinga Weze is a 5-year, $32.6 million activity that aims to sustainably increase farmers’ incomes, improve nutritional status of women and children, and increase the resilience of the agriculture and food systems to the changing climate. The Activity is being implemented in the following ten districts of Rwanda: Gatsibo, Kayonza, Bugesera, Ngoma (Eastern Province); Nyabihu, Rutsiro, Ngororero Nyamasheke, Karongi (Western Province); and Nyamagabe (Southern Province). Led by CNFA, the consortium is comprised of a diverse range of international and Rwandan partners including Plan International, Souktel, Rwanda Development Organization (RDO) and the Imbaraga Farmers’ Union.

Hinga Weze Objectives

Strategic Objective: To sustainably increase smallholder farmers’ income, improve nutritional status of Rwandan women and children, and increase the resilience of agriculture and food systems to the changing climate.

Intermediate Result 1: Agriculture productivity sustainably increased;

Intermediate Result 2: Farmers’ market access improved;

Intermediate Result 3: Nutrition outcomes of agriculture interventions improved.

Component 3: Nutrition Outcomes

Plan International is responsible for leading Component 3 to improve nutrition outcomes of agriculture interventions. Plan International is a global development and humanitarian organization founded 80 years ago that is active in over 70 countries. Its mission is to advance children's rights and equality for girls (https://plan-international.org). The nutrition activities and interventions under Component 3 are intended to increase the nutritional status of 200,000 households in the target districts, working through existing care groups, Community Health Workers and the Twigire Muhinzi Farmer Field Schools, to reach the target households with improved messaging about nutrition, including nutrition-sensitive agriculture and the importance of dietary diversity particularly for women and children 6-23 months. The same smallholder farmers who receive assistance through Component 1 (agricultural productivity) and Component 2 (market access) will also be targeted with activities to improve nutritional practices and outcomes. The expected results of this Component throughout the life of the project are: i) At least a 40% increase in number of women aged 15-49 consuming targeted nutrient-rich crops or products; at least a 40% increase in the number of children aged 6-23 months consuming targeted nutrient-rich crops or products; at least a 40% increase in the number of children aged 6-23 months receiving a minimum acceptable diet (MAD); and at least a 40% increase in women’s dietary diversity score: mean number of food groups consumed.

Nutrition situation in Rwanda

Nutrition continues to be a public health concern in Rwanda, with 38% of children under 5 presenting with stunting and 9% of children under 5 presenting as underweight according to Rwanda Demographic Health Survey (RDHS) 2014-2015. The elimination of stunting is high on the Government of Rwanda’s political and development agenda, with food security, nutrition, and early childhood development prioritized as foundational issues to address within the Economic and Poverty Reduction Strategy (2013–2018) and in the forthcoming National Strategy for Transformation and Prosperity (2017-2024). Rwanda has been a member of the Scaling Up Nutrition Movement since 2011, and established a Joint Action Plan to Eliminate Malnutrition (JAPEM 2016-2020) and District Plan to Eliminate Malnutrition (DPEM). The World Bank-USAID Rapid mapping of Nutrition Stakeholders, 2017 shows that there is also need to strengthen collaboration and coordination to reinforce the complementarities between interventions. This should be done by through existing platforms such as the DPEMs through conducting joint planning, identification of priorities, information sharing, and defining the roles and responsibilities of different partners. It is in this context that Hinga Weze intends to work with district stakeholders to update the DPEMs and to support the implementation of DPEM.

Objectives of the assignment

General objective:

The primary objective of this assignment is to support Hinga Weze to review and update the District Plans to Eliminate Malnutrition (DPEM) in each of the ten target districts.

Specific objectives:

  • Liaise with key stakeholders and district officials to assess the current DPEMs to understand current gaps in the DPEMs, and challenges in implementing the DPEMs, and solutions to ensure functionality of DPEMs and to promote district ownership.
  • Work with district stakeholders to update the DPEMs to address current gaps, and to incorporate nutrition-sensitive agriculture (Agriculture, access to market, Health/Childcare). The goal of DPEMs is to reduce chronic malnutrition among children under the age of two, and to reduce acute malnutrition in children under the age of five.
  • Assist the Hinga Weze team to identify key opportunities for collaboration and key innovative areas for intervention to achieve Hinga Weze outcomes.

Tasks

The Consultant will use the following approaches to perform the following tasks:

  • Conduct Desk Review of relevant documents: The consultant will review relevant documents, policies, and other available literature that assess the current status of implementation of nutrition activities in the 10 target districts. This will include, but is not limited to: The World Bank and MIGEPROF “Rapid mapping of Nutrition Stakeholders, Nutrition-sensitive and Nutrition-specific interventions in Rwanda” (2018); DHS report 2014-2015; USAID Multi-sectoral Nutrition Strategy 2014-2025; Gikuriro National Integrated Nutrition and WASH/ SBCC strategy 2018 -2024; CSFA 2015; National community health policy; National food and nutrition policy; Strategic Plan for Agriculture Transformation (PSTA4); and National Joint Plan to Eliminate Malnutrition (JPEM).
  • Review DPEMs: In each of the 10 target districts, liaise with key district stakeholders to assess the current DPEMs, what is working well, the current gaps in the plans, and the challenges in operationalizing the plans. This will involve key informant interviews (KII) at the national level, and focus group discussions (FGD) with community members and DPEM committee members at all levels (village to district). KIIs at the national level will include selected participants from the joint ministries to eliminate malnutrition including MINALOC, MOH, MINAGRI, MIGEPROF, the National Earlier Childhood Development program (NECDP) and implementing partners involved in DPEMs.
  • Update the DPEMs: The consultant will work with Hinga Weze staff, district government officials, and other relevant stakeholders to review and update the DPEMs in each of the 10 target districts. The update will be responsive to the needs of the districts as identified by their political leadership, GoR line ministries, and other stakeholders including other USAID IP’s. By the end of the exercise, the consultant will have finalized DPEMs in each district. The DPEMs should be in excel format, and should detail what activities will occur, what the targets are, and the responsible party for each activity.
