Request for Proposal: Data Analysis and Report Writing

Baseline Study Data Analysis and Report Writing for ‘Realizing Gender Equality and Attitudinal Change for Transformative Systems in Nutrition (REACTS-IN)’ Program in Somalia

World Vision Canada (WVC) is a global relief, development, and advocacy organization. Our focus is helping the world’s most vulnerable girls and boys overcome poverty and experience fullness of life. Grounded in more than 70 years of experience and expertise, World Vision works alongside communities, supporters, partners, and governments to change the way the world works for children, focusing on three specific areas: emergency relief, transformational development, and promotion of justice. We are inspired and motivated by our Christian faith.

Currently, WVC is looking for an experienced consultant to analyze baseline data and write a report for its Global Affairs Canada (GAC) funded REACTS-IN program in Somalia. This program is a seven-year initiative with the goal of improving nutrition, nutrition-related rights, and gender equality for the most marginalized populations in Somalia, with a particular focus on children under five years of age, women, and adolescent girls. The program’s interventions address the compounded challenges of food insecurity, malnutrition, gender inequality and sexual reproductive health, exacerbated by COVID19, drought conditions, insecurity, disease outbreaks, flooding, and population displacement in the Baidoa district of Somalia.

REACTS-IN is designed around the principles of partnership, local engagement, participation, evidence-based actions, capacity development, and system strengthening. It also includes context-based adaptive mechanisms to ensure women and girls’ rights to gender-equitable nutrition and SRHR are realized. The key components of the program in Somalia include provision of free primary healthcare services, reproductive health services for internally displaced people, facility-based nutrition support for pregnant and lactating women and children under five. The initiative also empowers GBV survivors with vocational skills and builds healthcare staffs’ capacity on clinical management of rape, Psychological First Aid, and referral pathways.
