Vacancy: Consultant Baseline Study of We Are Able!

The We Are Able! consortium is looking for an experienced consultant to perform the baseline study of We Are Able!. We Are Able! strengthens Civil Society Organizations and Disabled People Organizations in six fragile and conflict affected countries: Burundi, Democratic Republic of Congo, South Sudan, Sudan, Uganda and Ethiopia in their lobby and advocacy for sustainable and inclusive access to basic resources, contributing to improved food security. As a consortium we meet around a common goal; inclusive food security. The consortium consists of ZOA, The African Disability Forum, SeeYou Foundation (formerly known as Light for the World Netherlands), The Leprosy Mission Netherlands and implementing partners VNGI and The Hague Academy for Local Governance. 

The baseline study will be the basis for the measurement of progress on a number of fixed result indicators. These indicators will consist of the basket indicators as determined by the donor, The Ministry of Foreign Affairs, complemented with a limited set of project specific indicators for each country. The basket indicators will be reported in both an aggregated and disaggregated manner in line with the guidelines provided by The Ministry.

The consultant will play an important role in coordinating and overseeing the data collection processes in the six programme countries. The consultant will not travel between the countries in which the programme is implemented. This is mostly due to restrictions as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic, but also because the role of the consultant is more of a harmonizing and coordinating and aggregating nature than of an executive nature. Data collection itself will be organised by the consortium in-country in close collaboration with the consultant.
