The Kvinna till Kvinna Foundation has defended women’s rights since 1993. For every woman’s right to be safe and to be heard. Today we are one of the world’s leading women’s rights organisations, working directly in areas affected by war and conflict to strengthen women’s influence and power. We work closely together with over 150 local partner organisations across 20 countries to end violence against women, reach lasting peace and close the gender gap once and for all. The future is equal. And together, we are change.
Scope of Work
The evaluation will be based on a desk review of project documentation, discussions with Kvinna till Kvinna staff in Liberia and Stockholm, interviews with partner organisations in Liberia as well as members of their target groups/rights holders, including field visits, interviews with women- and human rights defenders, interviews with Kvinna till Kvinna staff in Liberia and possibly with other donors and stakeholders in Liberia.
The scope of work includes reviewing relevant documents and interviewing Kvinna till Kvinna’s Liberia office staff and programme staff in Stockholm as well as the United Nations PBF Secretariat in Liberia and other key stakeholders, including CSO partners. The partner organisations should be interviewed face to face. Visits to partner organisations’ projects should be included, with interviews (individually and/or in focus groups) with a selection of rights holders, participants, local community members and relevant duty bearers. The women Human RDs and LGBTQIA HRDs included in the project should be interviewed. The timeframe-period to be assessed by the evaluation is: June 1-30, 2022.
An Evaluation Reference Group comprising of PBSO and UN RCO and possibly other stakeholders will be established for a review during the evaluation process.
The Consultant will be expected to ensure that the evaluation analyses the effectiveness, and relevance, as well as the sustainability of the programme. The emphasis should be on giving supportive recommendations, which are connected to lessons learned. The consultant should present the suggested methodology for the evaluation in the tender, which should include both a desk evaluation, and a combination of qualitative and quantitative techniques.
The methodology should as much as possible be participatory aiming for the involvement of the partner organisations, and their target groups as well as WHRDs and HRD. The Consultant should consider the existence of intersectional power structures when doing the interviews and focus groups discussion and in the selection of participants. Consultants should also be aware and reflect on their own position of power. The interviews with rights holders should be conducted without staff or representatives of the relevant partner organisation being present, to endure non-interference in the responses. The evaluation will be carried out following OECD/DAC evaluation principles and guidelines. Furthermore, Kvinna till Kvinna has set a minimum standard for evaluations, strengthening some of the OECD/DAC principles. These will be shared with the evaluation team selected for the evaluation.
The consultant is responsible for booking appointments for interviews and to conduct all logistic arrangements for the assignment. Kvinna till Kvinna will provide contact details and relevant documentation.
