Description du Poste
Success story booklet, video clip, fact sheet and photos
Catholic Relief Services (CRS) Kenya Program has been working with orphans and vulnerable children (OVC) in Rift Valley for the past six years (2011-2017) and Northern Arid Land (NAL) for over 5 years. CRS works under the AIDS Population & Health Integrated Assistance People Centered Leadership, Universal Access Sustainability (APHIAplus) in both Nuru Ya Bonde and IMARISHA projects whose goals are to improve access to health services in six counties in Rift Valley and eight counties in NAL regions of Kenya. CRS Kenya adopted the organization’s integrated OVC model to address social determinants of health to improve the wellbeing of 75,000 OVC and 4,000 People Living with HIV (PLHIV) in Nuru ya Bonde as well as 39,447 OVC in NAL counties.
The service areas supported by the two projects are HIV care and support services, OVC services, household economic strengthening, child safeguarding/protection, linkages of OVC households to safety net programs, capacity building for county institutions and local implementing partners to deliver quality services to OVC, strengthening coordination of care across community stakeholders and increasing access to water sanitation and hygiene (WASH) and Management of Information System (MIS).
Nuru ya Bonde is currently in its seventh and final year and IMARISHA is in its sixth and final year. This provides the opportunity for CRS Kenya to assess its performance to both the donor and the beneficiaries by documenting success stories and best practices for shared learning and reporting. CRS is seeking a consultant to produce eight success stories, a 10-15-minute video, a two-page fact sheet, and a collection of 40 photos for each of the sites demonstrating the project outcomes and capturing beneficiary perspectives for each project.
The aim of this consultancy is to professionally document existing good practices, milestones, and success stories of CRS Kenya Social Determinant of Health (SDH) and OVC care and support components of the two APHIAs. The consultant will also be expected to strengthen the capacity of project staff in documenting human interest stories.
The final product will be used to inspire communities and duty bearers to support OVC and their caregivers through integrated services. The final product will be shared through CRS’ website, social media channels, donors, partners, and beneficiaries, among others.
Objective of the assignment
To capture and document evidenced based impact/success stories from CRS/APHIAplus beneficiaries through qualitative rapid assessment focusing on household economic strengthening initiatives, HIV care and treatment, OVC care and support, and community quality care structures as well as the role played by link desks to promote counter referral of beneficiaries to various services.
