To develop Monitoring and Evaluation framework for Faith based organization
Faith Based Organizations (FBOs) not only provide spiritual guidance to their followers, they are often the primary providers of health, education and social services. They are situated within the communities and built on relationships of trust; they have the ability to influence the attitudes and behaviors of their fellow community members. Faith based organizations have been working towards the abandonment of Harmful practices mainly Female Genital Mutilation (FGM) and Child Marriage (CM). Following the Ethiopian government’s commitment to end FGM and CM by 2025, the seven Faith based organizations represented by the Inter Religious Council of Ethiopia, have also pledged to support this high-level commitment. To realize this, a national and regional level taskforces were established from the seven member FBOs of the Inter religious council of Ethiopia so that to ensure each member FBOs engagements are tracked and documented.
Purpose of the Assignment
Though FBOs are keen to contribute to the abandonment of FGM and Child Marriage, there is gap in establishing sound and /or functional M and E framework that enable them track results. Hence, to ensure all the FBOs engagements are well documented and tracked, a robust monitoring and evaluation framework is needed. NCA is seeking to engage a consultant to support the development of an overall Monitoring and Evaluation framework that will be used by the eight faith based partners including the Inter Religious Council of Ethiopia.
