Title: Request for Proposal (RFP) - Technical Child Protection Institutional / Individual Consultancy to Strengthen the Capacity of NGO Partners in NE Nigeria
Background and Rationale
The humanitarian crisis in Nigeria’s north-eastern states of Borno, Adamawa and Yobe (the BAY states) gets worse every year as the need of children and women keep increasing. The continuing conflict that has lasted 13 years is still severely affecting millions of people in 2022, subjecting them to displacement (new, continued or forced migration), impoverishment and threat of violence. This has also exposed children to heighten child protection risks and concerns such as increase cases of violence against children, neglect, abuse, exploitation, forceful recruitment into non state armed groups/abductions and family separations leaving children unaccompanied and separated About 1.92 million people are displaced internally, and 257,000 have sought refuge in neighboring
Cameroon, Chad, and Niger. The majority (54%) of the internally displaced people (IDPs) have found refuge in host communities. Borno State has 81% of the IDPs, of whom slightly more than half (54%) stay in IDP camps. In 2020, some 81,000 newly displaced people arrived in camps and the host communities across the BAY states. The armed conflict has no clear end in sight. The Nigerian Armed Forces’ strategy (since mid-2019) of focusing on regrouping troops into ’super camps,’ while improving security for IDPs who had gathered in sites within adjacent ‘garrison towns,’ has affected security and protection for IDPs or other civilians outside of these areas, as well as attempts to reach them with humanitarian aid.
Seeing that children are the most affected by the impact of the humanitarian situation in north-east Nigeria, support to children remains a major priority in the humanitarian response. The Child Protection in Humanitarian Action which was developed by the Alliance for Child Protection in Humanitarian Action has developed standards and tools for enhancing the protection of children caught up in emergencies. It is, therefore, important to apply these global standards in the implementation of child protection response in the north-east Nigeria humanitarian response; and for this to happen there is need to strengthen the capacity of government agencies and National Non-Governmental Organizations (NNGOs) in the north-east Nigeria to provide technical and high quality services to children, to enhance the impact of each dollar or coin invested in the humanitarian response and sustainably contribute to the HPR objectives and the sustainable development goals.
GOALPrime Organization Nigeria through the support from the Nigerian Humanitarian Fund is looking for an experienced child protection consultant/agency to conduct a detailed training needs assessment and develop a capacity building plan/training program for national NGOs on the priority areas, this will strengthen the capacity of child protection partners.
In line with the Child Protection Area of Responsibility (CP AoR) objectives for 2022. GPON is committed to advancing the localization agenda and is, therefore, investing in strengthening the technical capacity of NNGOs to mitigate, prevent and respond to child protection risks in the Northeast. The technical capacity strengthening includes a mentoring, coaching, peer learning and capacity building approach/program. This investment will enable NNGOs to continue to enhance the protection of children in the humanitarian situation in the north-east of Nigeria even when international organizations scale down from the response.
The advertised consultancy will aim to deliver on the following main objectives below:
- Conduct a detailed training needs assessment to determine the training needs of Child Protection partners in the North East of Nigeria.
- Based on the assessment report develop a detailed training program for 25 NNGOs in Northeast Nigeria on identified prioritized needs.
