Consultant for an end of project evaluation for Ending Forced Child Begging of Talibés in Senegal project

Anti-Slavery International is seeking a consultant for an end of project evaluation. The DFID-funded project (2010-2015) aimed to significantly reduce forced begging by ‘talibé’ children in Senegal. The key objective identified as necessary for the achievement of this aim was State reform and regulation of the religious schools known as ‘daaras’, with support from communities. Anti-Slavery has worked with two partner organizations in Senegal to achieve this aim: the human rights lobbying group RADDHO and the community education/empowerment organization Tostan. The evaluation would require travelling to Senegal for 7-8 days to explore the impact of the project.

The consultant should have experience in undertaking evaluations in the human rights sector, and should speak and write fluently in both English and French. Ideally the consultant should have experience of working with vulnerable communities, including children, in West Africa.

The evaluation will require 16-17 days of work at the rate of £300 per day.

Applicants should submit a CV, cover letter and a brief approach paper outlining ideas for the evaluation to Sarah Mathewson at s.mathewson@antislavery.org.
