Request for Expression of Interest (Call for CVs): Conduct a Baseline Study
Since 2018, FEMNET has been partnering with the Swedish Association for Sexuality Education (RFSU) to educate religious and cultural leaders in Homabay and Tharaka Nithi counties in Kenya to challenge and lead in ending harmful cultural practices and religious teachings and attitudes that prevent women and girls from enjoying their full sexual and reproductive health and rights (SRHR) such as female genital mutilation, widow cleansing, early and forced marriages and others. In 2019, this work is being scaled up to include Migori county in Kenya.
FEMNET now invites eligible and qualified individuals to indicate their interest in providing consultancy services in conducting a baseline study to assess the status of engagement of religious and cultural leaders in the promotion of sexual and reproductive health and rights (SRHR) for women and girls in Homabay, Tharaka Nithi and Migori counties in Kenya.
The Baseline Study will be used to establish the status of the community before the second phase of the project by FEMNET and RFSU and later its impact on the community. The baseline will be used to develop or review indicators for the result areas as per the project interventions. The baseline will help develop data collection tools and other means of verification of evidence for the results achieved by the project interventions. It will further provide tools for tracking the following:
- Results – quantitative and qualitative results against log frame indicators;
- Relevance – representativeness and targeting.
- Effectiveness – learning, innovation, partnership and sustainability.
- Efficiency – organizational efficiency and monitoring of costs of inputs and outputs.
- Impact – demonstrable impact and impact assessment methods.
