RCK End of Project Evaluation Consultancy: UN Trust Fund Project

 Terms of Reference (TOR) for a Consultancy to Undertake an End Evaluation Towards improved prevention of violence against women and girls among urban refugees in Nairobi and Garissa Counties

  1. Background and Context

The Refugee Consortium of Kenya (RCK) is a national non-governmental organisation established in 1998. RCK’s mission is to promote and protect the rights and dignity of refugees, asylum seekers, IDPs, other forced migrants, and host community members in Kenya and the wider East African region. It was established as a response to an increasingly complex and deteriorating refugee situation in Kenya and the region. RCK’s core mandate is to: provide legal aid services and psycho-social counselling; engage in advocacy for policy change by providing technical support towards development of relevant legislations in line with the international instruments regulating the management of refugees and other forced migrants; and to raise awareness regarding the plight and rights of the vulnerable groups through research and information dissemination.

The UN Trust Fund to End Violence against Women (UN Trust Fund) is a global champion for gender equality, working to develop and uphold standards and create an environment in which every woman and girl can exercise her human rights, and live up to her full potential. It awards grants to initiatives that demonstrate that violence against women and girls can be systematically addressed, reduced and, with persistence, eliminated.

RCK together with its partner the UN Trust Fund are looking for an evaluator to conduct an evaluation of the Violence Against Women and Girls (VAWG) project in Garissa (Garissa Township) and Nairobi (Eastleigh, Kawangware, Kitengela, Kayole, and Kasarani) counties. Contextually, the evaluation will be a critical step to help in documenting the impact of the project while generating new knowledge realised during the project’s implementation to promote learning. The evaluation will also purpose to assess the impact of unforeseen challenge(s) and change(s) of environment (positive and negative) during project implementation i.e. Covid-19 pandemic and the enactment of the Refugees Act, 2021, among others. In addition to this, the evaluator will assess how RCK with support from the UN Trust Fund responded to the unforeseen challenges and environmental changes (positive and negative) to ensure consistency in service delivery to the beneficiaries. The evaluation will help in assessing the effectiveness and efficiency of the project’s interventions; inform practical basis for inferences and decisions necessary for the programming of future measures and/or recommendations; and also build a case for resource mobilization for RCK and UN Trust Fund.
