Title: Request for Proposal (RFP) for Psychosocial First Aid Support for Survivors of VEOs in Borno State

This is a call for proposals for Psychosocial First Aid (PFA) to survivors of violence and capacity strengthening of social workers working for the Ministry of Women Affairs and Social Development in Maiduguri, Borno state. The organization or firm will conduct Psychosocial support sessions, capacity strengthening, monitoring, and reporting for Creative Associates International’s (Creative Associates) Northeast Connection program funded by USAID.

The purpose of the Northeast Connection project is to strengthen the resilience of communities vulnerable to violent extremism and conflict. The program targets communities in Adamawa, Yobe, and Borno states, seizing on opportunities to mitigate communities’ vulnerabilities, build social cohesion within and across communities, and respond to emergent risks.

Scope of Services
Creative Associates seeks to engage a firm or organization to carry out Psychosocial First Aid (PFA) for 500 survivors of violence, including men, women, youth and infants, and capacity strengthening for social workers and key staff from the Ministry of Women Affairs and Social Development (MWASD) in Maiduguri Local Government Area (LGA) of Borno state.

The assignment will be conducted under the direction of Northeast Connection and in collaboration with the MWASD. It is expected the organization or firm will provide Psychosocial support for survivors in the Bulunkutu rehabilitation center in Maiduguri managed by the Ministry. The organization or firm will develop and/or adapt a PFA approach and training and capacity development tools specific to the context and needs of the MWASD’s critical response and Psychosocial support efforts in the Borno state rehabilitation camps.
