About the job

1. A N OVERVIEW OF THE PROJECT

An increase in war-related displacement has led to major displacement and a new wave of humanitarian needs as the violence in northern Ethiopia has spread beyond Tigray into the nearby Afar area. Some of the negative effects of violence include population relocation, community destabilisation, family strife, fatalities, disruption of social services and infrastructures, and property destruction. All ages, sexes, and groupings within a specific community are impacted by the conflict’s unquestionably harmful effects, which are made worse by the drought’s climate-related effects. Women and children are especially susceptible to these dangers, however. A project titled “Addressing WASH, Health and Protection Needs of Conflict and Drought-Affected Girls, Boys, Women and Men of IDP and Host Communities in Afar, Ethiopia” with an 18-month duration from April 2022 to September 2023 has been implemented by Save the Children with funding from the Government of Canada in three targeted Woredas of the Afar region.

In the Erebti, Berahle, and Dalol woredas of the Afar area, SC worked to address the basic health, WASH, and child protection needs of conflict-affected people. When the project first began, security concerns resulting from the resumption of the northern Ethiopian conflict in August 2022 caused a complete stop to project activities at Erebti Woredas from August 25–October 24 and on both Berahle and Dalol from August 26–November 25. This had some impact on the project deliverables. Following the end of hostilities, SC performed a security risk assessment at Erebti, Berhale, and Dalol Woredas from November 9 to November 14, 2022, and then began activities.

Through the implementation of an activity package created to meet the various interconnected Health, Water, Sanitation and Hygiene (WASH), and protection needs of communities affected by drought and conflict, Save the Children (SC) has developed an integrated, multi-sectoral approach to ensure greater overall efficiency in the delivery of services and to increase impact.

In three districts of the Afar Region, SC has recently been carrying out a developmental-humanitarian nexus intervention that includes development initiatives to support and enhance the success of life-saving humanitarian operations.  The WASH, health, and child protection sectors have all reinforced and implemented resilience-building strategies as a result of the humanitarian actions and systems. The development components sought to improve the IHA’s capacity for public participation, representation among decision-makers, response to gender-specific human rights violations, well-being and basic needs; public awareness; and institutional capacity to further the long-term sustainability of gains in resiliency and accountability.

In order to support their institutional and operational strengths, the WASH activities included providing spare parts, major maintenance tools, electro-mechanical equipment, and motorbikes for field monitoring activities. They also included rehabilitation of the WASH sector offices, such as woreda water offices and Water Management Committee at the woreda level.

The life-saving health interventions were proposed to strengthen and improve the resilience of health systems, contributing to long-term improvements in the health statuses of women, girls, boys, and men. Training was provided to health facility staff to also cover public health, referral pathways, pharmaceutical, and supply chain management to ensure the continuity of cost-effective health services in hard-to-reach or remote areas, and the mobile clinics provide emergency care.

The protection activities have included mapping and analysing the gaps in the program’s target areas’ protection services as well as the existing protection services themselves, providing basic training on child protection (CP) to mechanisms for identification, reporting, referral, and response, enhancing coordination with government agencies and civil society organisations to prevent and address child protection issues, and ensuring a reliable system for managing child protection information.

SC made sure that all solutions were open to and inclusive of all people of the community who were at risk (girls, boys, expectant and nursing mothers, as well as others/child carers). In all project-related activities, including advocacy, communication of essential messages, training and capacity development, and awareness raising, both men and women take part equally and actively. In order to ensure participation in establishing criteria for beneficiary selection, needs in the region, and priorities, SC consulted the local community, village leaders, volunteer accountability committee, and local authorities on the topic of creating and putting in place the appropriate accountability mechanism. A volunteer accountability committee has also been created by SC to guarantee their engagement at Zone and kebele levels in the host communities for IDPs and returnees.

Additionally, SC encouraged child involvement to participate in decision-making at all stages of the project cycle by providing capacity-building training and raising awareness of the nine SC basic principles of children participation to all project beneficiaries, community leaders, and government employees.

Generally speaking, SC (Save the Children) has used the project nexus strategy to contact 65,787 (17,918G, 15,487 B, 17,609 F, 14,773 M) conflict-affected people during the course of the award term. With a total grant of $3,600,000 CAD, the total number of people reached through the humanitarian component was 58, 427 (14,978 G, 15,445 B, 14,479 F, 13,525 M), which is 127% of the target (45,884). The total number of people reached through the development component was 7,512 (2,046 G, 1,086B, 3,040 F, 1,340 M), which is 10% of the target (78,098).

As a result, this TOR serves as the foundation for an independent consultant company to complete the project’s end-line evaluation. The assessment process includes context analysis, technical and financial proposal creation, standardisation of survey methods, data collecting, data management, analysis, interpretation, and report writing, as well as stakeholder validation of the assessment results.  This end-line evaluation aims to evaluate the situation after the project intervention. The project inputs and outcomes reached after 18 months of interventions will be determined by comparing the end-line assessment’s findings with those of the baseline assessment. Men, women, girls, and boys will all be included in the study, which will highlight both intentional and unintentional changes in these various social groupings. It will also reveal who the
