Rwanda: International Consultancy to document the Child Protection Programme, UNICEF Rwanda, 7 Months.

Organization: UN Children's Fund
Country: Rwanda
Closing date: 15 Apr 2018

UNICEF works in some of the world’s toughest places, to reach the world’s most disadvantaged children. To save their lives. To defend their rights. To help them fulfill their potential.

Across 190 countries and territories, we work for every child, everywhere, every day, to build a better world for everyone.

And we never give up.

Background

UNICEF is one of a key partner for the Government of Rwanda in the area of Child Protection. The current country programme began in 2013 and is due to come to an end in 2018. The UNICEF Child Protection Programme in Rwanda is beginning to consolidate its role in programme implementation, across sectors and with key partners among UN agencies, NGOs and civil society.

Among the key steps taken on behalf of Rwandanchildren in recent years are the establishment of the National Commission forChildren, which is dedicated to the promotion and protection of children’s rights;and the launch of a Strategy for National Child Care Reform, which aims at transforming Rwanda’s current child care and protection system into a family-based, family strengthening system whose resources (both human and financial) are primarily targeted at supporting vulnerable families to remain together and promoting positive Rwandan social values that encourage all Rwandans and their

communities to take responsibility for vulnerable children. The entry point for the implementation of the Strategy for National Child Care Reform is the placement of children from orphanages and other residential care facilities into families through the flagship Tubarerere Mu Muryango/Let’s raise children in families Programme.

UNICEF is among the Government of Rwanda’s key partners in preventing andresponding to neglect, abandonment, violence and exploitation, with a particular focuson the most vulnerable, including children without parental care and children withdisabilities.

UNICEF’s mandate and responsibilities in child protection have increased over the last decade, implemented through the pillars of the Child Protection Strategy that sets out approaches to systems strengthening, promoting positive social change, emergency preparedness and response. ÂProgramming for child protection seeks to strengthen systems across social sectors that respond to and help prevent protection-related risks. This includes a specific focus on child protection system and referrals made to social protection, health, and justice systems.

Since 2013, the following are some of the key achievements made in the UNICEF Child Protection Programme in Rwanda:

  • UNICEF with funding from USAID/DCOF provided technical and financial support to the National Commission for Children to implement the Tubarerere Mu Muryangoprogramme (‘Let’s Raise Children in Families’). Over 2,900 children who were livingin orphanages have been reintegrated into family-based care;
  • UNICEF supported the capacity-building and deployment of a cadreof 68 social workers and psychologists, who now represent the first-everGovernment of Rwanda-led social service workforce in the country;
  • A new cadre of 29,674 community-based para-professionals (Inshuti z’Umuryango, or‘Friends of the Family’) was established in 2015, with continuing support fromUNICEF, and tasked with the provision of child and family protection services atthe village level;
  • UNICEF supported the adoption of the Justice for Children Policy, which has ledto a more child-friendly justice system for children in contact or conflict with the law.
  • More than 5,000 children who were victims of abuse and gender-basedviolence have received free assistance through the Isange One Stop Centres,an innovative country-led response to violence and abuse. The centres, whichUNICEF helped to establish, provide a range of comprehensive services,including medical care, psychosocial support and police and legal assistance;
  • UNICEF helped to strengthen preparedness for and capacity to respondto cross-border movements of children related to emergencies and childtrafficking;
  • UNICEF is a key participant in the National Partnership for Children withDisabilities, which was established to effectively coordinate services andprogrammes targeting children with disabilities;
  • UNICEF in collaboration with With the Ministry of Health, Rwanda Biomedical Center, and the Center for Disease Control, finalized the technical report for Violence against Children and Youth Survey (VACYS), assessing the national prevalence of physical, sexual and emotional violence against children and youth aged 13 to 24. Findings are currently being validated.
  • UNICEF Child Protection Programme has participated in a significant number of programmes that have had considerable achievements within this country programme, however UNICEF has not sufficiently engaged in documenting these achievements/lessons learnt. The lack of documentation means that specific successes and lessons learnt cannot be properly recorded and shared for the purposes of learning as well as showcasing the good work done in Rwanda.

    Objective

    The objective of this consultancy is to document selected key programmes and achievements from the current country programme for the purposes of sharing lessons learnt, showcasing the achievements in Rwanda and advocacy for future resource mobilization for child protection.

    This consultancy will contribute specifically to outcome 3 of the UNICEF Rwanda Country Programme Revised Results structure 2014-2018 which is as follows:

    Outcome 3 – Girls and boys, especially the most vulnerable are protected from violence, abuse, exploitation and neglect within an evidence informed child protection system.

    Justification

    Given the fact that UNICEF Child Protection Programme has advanced and had a lot of success in the implementation, and that UNICEF Rwanda is heading towards the end of the country programme, it is timely to consolidate all our interventions through various documentation in order to show case the success of the programme. This consultancy aims to document existing good practices on child protection programmes for the current country programme cycle. The consultant will be tasked to develop a selected number of deliverables on a range of protection issues and programming areas.

    The consultant will be tasked to document the best practices and lessons learned during the TMM programme implementation cycle in the form of narrative, programme briefs and case stories, for showcasing to a wide spectrum of audience. The following programme areas will be prioritized:

  • Documentation on the National Child Care Reform;
  • The process of deinstitutionalization; and
  • Curriculum Development and training of the social workforce.
  • Furthermore, the consultant will be tasked to have a critical review of each programme area from desk review of programme documents and key informant interviews of various implementing partners and document the success of each area in a manner that is clear and succinct. The Programmes documented will be done in partnership with relevant actors such as government of Rwanda, donors and academic institutions. The guiding reference on the progress of the TMM Programme will be the TMM Programme Evaluation Report . The consultant is expected to review the long TMM Programme Summative evaluation and draft a summary document of not exceeding 20 pages.

    The documentation will be used for different targeted audience such as our Government counter parts at national and sub-national levels, donors, other UNICEF country offices within and outside the Africa Region. Various Programme documents used by the UNICEF Child Protection Programme in Rwanda will provide the frame of reference for programme documentation throughout the assignment. Furthermore, consultation with UNICEF Child Protection partners will also be another resource that should not go untapped in order to get a broader perspective of the collaborations that contributed to the achievement of different Child Protection results for children.Â

    To that end, UNICEF is hiring an international individual Consultant. The consultancy is for seven (7) months; the consultant will report to the Chief of Child Protection and will receive regular technical guidance from the Child Protection Specialist.

    Specific tasks and expected deliverables

    The incumbent will be accountable for the following tasks:

  • Review existing programme documents, reports, evaluations and other relevant documents from the Child Protection Programme;
  • Draft a 20 pager summary report of the TMM Evaluation;

  • Outreach to other UN agencies, NGOs, Orphanage Managers and Social line Ministries doing similar work related to child protection to elicit key lessons that can be incorporated into the documentation. This will generate insights into how the collaboration between UNICEF and partners has contributed to the success of the child protection programme.
  • Expected deliverables include:

    Draft Summary report on the TMM Programme Summative Evaluation.

  • Narrative on the strategy for National Child Care Reform and how this catalyzed the development of the Child Protection system in Rwanda focusing on lessons learnt and success factors.
