Rwanda: PROTECTING THE MOST VULNERABLE PEOPLE BY IMPROVING LIVING CONDITIONS OF BURUNDIAN REFUGEES IN MAHAMA CAMP AND MUNINI HOST COMMUNITY

Organization: Belgian Red Cross
Country: Rwanda
Closing date: 06 Nov 2017

Référence de l’appel d’offre : Evaluation Externe Rwanda/2017

Public cible : La Croix-Rouge Rwandaise (CRR), la Croix-Rouge de Belgique (CRB), les autorités locales pertinentes au Rwanda et la Direction Générale du Développement belge (DGD)

Mandataire : Croix-Rouge de Belgique (CRB)**

Rapports : les rapports d’évaluation seront soumis par l’évaluateur à la CRB qui se chargera de le transmettre à la CRR

Calendrier : Le démarrage de l’évaluation sur le terrain devra avoir lieu aux alentours du 20 novembre 2017, selon le calendrier plus bas.

Échéancier :

  • Remise du rapport provisoire au plus tard 15 jours après la mission d’évaluation

  • Remise du rapport final au plus tard 1 semaine après réception des commentaires

Lieux : Rwanda (Camp de Mahama et la Communauté hôte Munini, Région de Kirehe, Kigali)C

Contexte :

A partir d’avril 2015, la montée de tensions et violences au Burundi ont poussé près de 400.000 personnes à fuir le pays. En novembre 2016, plus de 83.113 ressortissants burundais s’étaient réfugiés au Rwanda. 55.000 d’entre eux (dont 50% sont des enfants de moins 18 ans) séjournent actuellement dans le camp de Mahama situé dans le sud-est du Rwanda.

Dès le début de la crise au Burundi, la Croix-Rouge du Rwanda s’est mobilisée pour répondre à l'urgence et était, de fait, la première organisation à soutenir le gouvernement Rwandais dans la gestion de l’accueil des réfugiés. Cette intervention de la CRR s’est d’abord faite dans le cadre d’Appel de la FICR (Fédération Internationale de la Croix-Rouge), puis dans celui d’un Consortium de partenaires du Mouvement Croix-Rouge.

Depuis décembre 2016, la Croix-Rouge du Rwanda reçoit l’appui de la Croix-Rouge de Belgique (sur financement de la Coopération belge au développement) afin de poursuivre son opération d'urgence. L'opération privilégie la protection des personnes les plus vulnérables et vise à améliorer les conditions de vie des réfugiés burundais dans le camp de Mahama (55.018 réfugiés au 7 septembre 2017) et des habitants de la communauté de Munini (5.900 habitants). L’opération met l'accent sur les interventions dans les domaines de la santé, l'assainissement et la promotion de l'hygiène, l’environnement, le renforcement des moyens de subsistance et des services communautaires, la mobilisation et la cohésion sociale entre les communautés

La présente évaluation portera sur le programme « Protecting the most vulnerable people by improving living conditions of Burundian refugees in Mahama Camp and Munini Host Community » mis en œuvre par la Croix-Rouge Rwandaise et financé par la DGD du 1er octobre 2016 au 1er octobre 2017 (avec un prolongement de 4 mois jusqu’au 31 janvier 2018). La proposition de projet prévoit qu’une évaluation externe soit réalisée à la fin du projet.

Le but de cette évaluation vise d’une part à mesurer l’atteinte des résultats à travers l’appréciation des indicateurs objectivement vérifiables ainsi qu’à apprécier l’impact et les effets de la stratégie adoptée et capitaliser les bonnes pratiques. La CRR et la CRB explorent les possibilités de poursuivre ce programme sous un format qui reste à définir. Il est donc particulièrement important de tirer les enseignements de ce projet afin d’éclairer les choix qui seront faits pour une poursuite éventuelle du projet, sous un format à définir.

Le but de cette évaluation vise d’une part à mesurer l’atteinte des résultats à travers l’appréciation des indicateurs objectivement vérifiables ainsi qu’à apprécier l’impact et les effets de la stratégie adoptée et capitaliser les bonnes pratiques. La CRR et la CRB explorent les possibilités de poursuivre ce programme sous un format qui reste à définir. Il est donc particulièrement important de tirer les enseignements de ce projet afin d’éclairer les choix qui seront faits pour une poursuite éventuelle du projet, sous un format à définir.

Objectif de l’évaluation :

L’évaluation abordera l’analyse du projet selon les critères standards d’évaluation (pertinence, complémentarité/cohérence, efficacité, efficience, durabilité, impact). De plus, elle fera des recommandations concrètes pour éclairer la CRR et la CRB sur une suite/ continuation possible de ce projet, sous un format qui reste à déterminer. Par ailleurs, elle s’étendra de manière plus détaillée sur les questions suivantes :

Pertinence

  • Est-ce que les actions concrètes mises en œuvre dans le cadre de ce projet au profit des réfugiés et des communautés hôtes sont pertinentes au regard de leurs besoins identifiés ?

  • Le projet s’insère-t-il dans les priorités stratégiques de la CRR?

  • Le projet s’insère-t-il dans le contexte institutionnel de la CRR et s’appuie-t-il sur les structures officielles au sein de la CRR afin de renforcer l’existant ?

  • Quelles recommandations renforceraient la Pertinence de l’action, si celle-ci venait à être poursuivie ?

Complémentarité/cohérence

  • Le projet s’est-il intégré dans la stratégie globale des acteurs humanitaires dans le camp et communautés hôtes telle que pilotée par le Midamar, le HCR et les autorités locales ?

  • Quelle a été la valeur ajoutée de la collaboration avec les autres acteurs humanitaires et sociaux dans le camp et dans les communautés hôtes, au niveau national et local ? Quelles en sont les limites ? Comment dépasser celles-ci ?

  • Les autres acteurs de développement intervenant dans le camp et les communautés hôtes ont-ils été pris en compte et des synergies ont-elles été initiées et valorisées en suffisance ?

  • Le projet est-il en cohérence avec la stratégie nationale du Rwanda vis-à-vis des réfugiés ?

  • Quelles recommandations renforceraient la Complémentarité/ cohérence de l’action, si celle-ci venait à être poursuivie ?

Efficacité

  • Le projet a-t-il atteint ses trois objectifs tels que stipulés dans la fiche projet ?

R1 Immediate risks to the health, hygiene and well-being of the refugee camp are reduced over a period of 12 months

R2 Immediate risk to the health, hygiene and well-being of the host families are reduced

R3 Improve capacity of the Rwanda Red cross Society in the areas of disaster preparedness and response in the refugee camps and host communities

  • Le projet a-t-il atteint d’autres objectifs qui ont été identifiés en cours de mise en œuvre ?

  • Est-ce que la structure du projet, (expatrié CRB sur place, travail de proximité avec les équipes de CRR sur place, implication du Siege de la CRR, etc.) a permis une mise en œuvre efficace du projet? Il conviendra ici de comparer la structure du présent projet à celle mise en place, dans les programmes antérieurs d’intervention de la Croix-Rouge dans le camp de Mahama (Appel de la FICR, Consortium, etc.)

  • Dans quelle mesure les activités et la mobilisation communautaire insufflée dans le cadre de ce projet a contribué à l’atteinte des résultats du projet ?

  • Dans quelle mesure les aspects liés au genre ont-ils été pris en compte dans le projet ?

  • Quels éléments ont été un frein ou un levier à l’atteinte des résultats ?

  • Quelles recommandations renforceraient l’Efficacité de l’action, si celle-ci venait à être poursuivie ?

Efficience

  • Dans quelle mesure les moyens mis à disposition ont-ils été adéquatement utilisés pour atteindre les résultats ?

  • L’adéquation entre moyens disponibles et résultats attendus était-elle appropriée ?

  • Quelles recommandations renforceraient l’Efficience de l’action, si celle-ci venait à être poursuivie ?

Durabilité

Par nature, le projet répondant aux besoins humanitaires de réfugiés et communautés hôtes, n’a pas vocation à être durable, sans assistance extérieure. La durabilité, ici, sera analysée sous trois angles :

  1. L’appropriation par les bénéficiaires de pratiques promues par le projet (Kitchen gardens, pratiques d’hygiènes, etc.)

  2. Les capacités de la CRR de poursuivre les activités pertinentes prévues dans ce projet

  3. Le maintien de l’implication des bénévoles, si le projet en tant que tel, venait à ne pas être renouvelé.

  4. Dans quelle mesure les populations cibles (Refugiés et Population hôtes) ont-elles adopté les pratiques promues par le projet ?

  5. Dans quelle mesure ce projet a-t-il contribué à la construction de la résilience des communautés, (en référence aux piliers de la FICR) ?

  6. Dans quelle mesure le projet a-t-il renforcé les capacités de la CRR (au niveau national, local et des bénévoles) à poursuivre cette action et/ou conduire des actions similaires?

  7. Dans quelle mesure la mobilisation communautaire insufflée dans le cadre de ce projet va-t-elle perdurer après la fin du projet dans les camps de réfugiés et dans les communautés hôtes?

  8. Quelles recommandations renforceraient la durabilité de l’action, si celle-ci venait à être poursuivie ?

La réponse à ces questions sera structurée selon différents types de durabilité :

  • durabilité technique : Maitrise par la CRR et, selon pertinence, d’autres partenaires des outils et de la méthodologie

  • durabilité institutionnelle : Capacité de la CRR et, selon pertinence, d’autres partenaires de s’auto-mobiliser et de maintenir un engagement de longue haleine dans le camp et communauté hôte

  • durabilité financière : Capacité de la CRR et, selon pertinence, d’autres partenaires de prendre en charge les coûts nécessaires pour poursuivre l’action et/ ou de mobiliser des sources de financement externes

  • durabilité sociale : Maîtrise/ adoption de l'intervention par les bénéficiaires et acceptation socio-culturelle des approches.

Impact

  • Appréciation de l’impact du projet sur la situation humanitaire des populations les plus vulnérables parmi les réfugiés et les communautés hôtes

  • Appréciation de l’impact du projet sur le développement institutionnel de la CRR (niveau central et local).

  • Quels sont les effets durables positifs ou négatifs, direct/indirects, souhaités ou imprévus, à tous les niveaux (individuel, communautaire, dispositif de prise en charge des refugiés, etc.) induits par le projet ?

  • Quelles recommandations renforceraient l’impact de l’action, si celle-ci venait à être poursuivie ?

Burundi: Advocacy consultancy Ubuntu Care Regional Project: confronting sexual violence against girls and boys, including children with disabilities

Organization: Handicap International
Country: Burundi, Kenya, Rwanda
Closing date: 17 May 2017

HANDICAP INTERNATIONAL FEDERATION
‘Ubuntu Care: confronting sexual violence against girls and boys, including children with disabilities’
is a multi-country project implemented in Rwanda, Burundi and Kenya. It aims to address both
the causes and consequences of sexual violence against children, especially those with disabilities.
The project's name “ubuntu” stems from the Bantu languages of East Africa. It can be translated
to mean: "I am what I am because of who we all are.” It refers to the social link between the
individual and the community. Across Rwandan, Burundian and Kenyan societies, it is strongly
associated with positive concepts such as humanity, generosity and community. While the addition
of “care” is arguably a more occidental concept, it draws on the idea of promoting the voice of
the most vulnerable including children and survivors – especially those with disabilities – and giving
opportunities for empowerment. The project is called Ubuntu Care for exactly these reasons –
because its ultimate goal is to end sexual violence against children through social cohesion and
coordinated intervention.
The Ubuntu Care project today is the result of a process of research and reflection, dating back to

  1. Handicap International's field teams observed that one of the causes of HIV/AIDS and mental
    health problems was in fact sexual violence. Based on these observations, and due to lack of
    evidence and research on this issue in developing countries, Handicap International and Save the
    Children UK decided to carry out a joint study focused on the vulnerability to sexual violence of
    children with disabilities in four countries (Burundi, Madagascar, Mozambique and Tanzania). After
    1.5 years of field-based research the findings revealed that, despite of widely different contexts,
    the factors that render children with disabilities particularly vulnerable to this type of violence are
    similar: social exclusion, discrimination against disability, barriers to access appropriate support
    services. As a result, child survivors with disabilities are more likely to bear the full brunt of the
    consequences of sexual violence (STDs, unwanted pregnancy, social marginalisation, psychological
    trauma, as well as new impairments), while the large majority of perpetrators go unpunished.
    Handicap International (HI) implemented phase one (2013-2015) of the Ubuntu Care project in
    Rwanda, Burundi and Kenya, encompassing activities and research designed to more effectively
    identify and address factors related to sexual violence against children, including children with disabilities.
    Phase two (2016-2018) continues to address a range of vulnerability factors.
    The project therefore has four main directives:
    1.Empowering children as actors in their own protection through education, skills development,
    social recreation, and participation in decision-making.
  2. Empowering communities and families to better protect children through capacity
    building, support, and changing negative attitudes within communities/families that underpin violence.
  3. Strengthening access to and quality of services: education, medical, legal and psychosocial.
    PROJECT Ubuntu Care Regional Project: confronting sexual violence against girls and boys,
    including children with disabilities
    COUNTRIES Rwanda, Burundi, Kenya
    TIMELINE May/June 2017
    POSITION Advocacy Consultant – development of regional/international advocacy strategy
    I. CONTEXT
  4. Advocating for more effective protection systems for child survivors at the national, regional
    and international level, backed by evidence based data generated by the monitoring
    system on violence against children with and without disabilities.
    Handicap International and its operational partners are strongly committed to promoting the
    voices of children, advocating for the prevention and mitigation of sexual violence, especially
    against those with disabilities. Some initiatives have already been implemented, such as the short
    film screening of Through Our Eyes: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OixWoiTwooI. during
    phase 1 of the project. The organisation would therefore like to recruit an external consultant to
    build on this past advocacy work, to continue fighting for children's right to protection.
    The main objectives of the assignment are therefore to:
    • Develop and present an advocacy strategy to guide HI’s future work in the areas of child protection,
    sexual/gender-based violence and disability, within the framework of the current Ubuntu
    Care project
    • Design and propose indicators to measure, evaluate and document the future progress and successes
    during implementation phase of the advocacy strategy
    In addition, the advocacy strategy should take into consideration the following parameters:
    • Identifying key entry points, advocacy opportunities and target audiences, particularly at the regional
    and international levels, to influence policies and practices of decision-makers and donors
    (taking into consideration local/national-level strategic alliances, activities and processes already
    underway)
    • Heavily informed by the experiences, perspectives and contributions of children within the targeted
    countries/region
    • Identifying key advocacy opportunities to highlight/raise awareness on the intersections between
    factors of age, gender and disability in relation to sexual violence
    • Outlining possible opportunities for participatory child- or youth-led advocacy initiatives, including
    those with disabilities, particularly at the regional and international levels
    • Exploring innovative means, methodologies and dissemination channels to influence policy and
    practice
    • Comprehensive regional/international advocacy strategy (in written report format, both Word and
    PDF versions) which is concise and action-oriented, including the identification of strategic alliances
    and partners, as well as practical tools and guidelines
    • Three year action plan, including project activities and actions foreseen at the local/national levels
    which can eventually feed into a wider regional/international level
    • Presentation of advocacy strategy (in PowerPoint format), briefly outlining key elements and recommendations,
    for validation by the Ubuntu Care Steering Committee
    • Debriefing (via Skype) with key HI support staff
    All written work product should be provided in English.
    It is expected that the assignment will take 10-12 working days, and is intended to be home-based
    due to limited financial resources. In the event that the consultant is already based within the region
    in one of the target countries, there may be some scope for field-level activities (but this will
    be discussed on a case-by-case basis in collaboration with HI staff) to allow for consultation with
    children and other project stakeholders.
    II. OBJECTIVES OF THE ASSIGNMENT
    III. KEY DELIVERABLES
    IV. SCHEDULE
    The final deadline for all deliverables will be 26 June 2017.
    • Minimum four years professional experience in advocacy work, including strategy development
    and child participation
    • Proven track record of accomplishments in the advocacy sector (preferably at regional or international
    level)
    • Strong understanding of the East African context; potential key entry points and possible targets;
    principal actors (relevant donors, institutions, other INGOs); as well as, the linkages between
    child protection, sexual/gender-based violence and disability

    • Master’s degree in International Relations, Human Rights or other social sciences (or equivalent
    by experience)

  2. L’engagement constructif entre les acteurs de la société civile et les autorités locales autour des problématiques sensibles est renforcé ;
  3. La capacité des acteurs de la consolidation de la paix aux niveaux nationaux est renforcée à travers leur participation au projet (résultat transversal).

Le projet est mis en œuvre dans trois pays : le Burundi, le Rwanda et la République Démocratique du Congo (Nord et Sud Kivu).

Pour atteindre ces résultats, l’approche de SFCG consiste en une combinaison d’activités régionales suscitant un échange d’expérience entre les acteurs fonciers clés à différents niveaux, autour des politiques et meilleures pratiques de gestion foncière ; avec des activités de renforcement des capacités et des activités medias mises en œuvre au niveau de chaque pays.
