Millions of children around the world are trapped in child labour, depriving them of their childhood, their health and education, and condemning them to a life of poverty and want. There is work that children do to help their families in ways that are neither harmful nor exploitative, but many children are stuck in unacceptable work for children – a serious violation of their rights. The purpose of this assignment is a) identify the gaps and needs in child labour pertaining to Syrian refugees and b) identify potential local partners in Lebanon with experience in child labour and protection of children. The consultant will work to provide RI with an evidence-based program design, which responds to identified needs for vulnerable Syrians refugees and host communities in the sector of Protection, with a specific focus on addressing child labour.
The consultant will need to complete a desk review of overall needs and relevant trends in child labour/protection for vulnerable groups in Lebanon. Then the consultant will develop an assessment to be implemented by RI that will include quantitative and qualitative data collection, targeting specific areas of concerns based on the desk review and focused on select geographic areas. Ultimately, the following objectives should be achieved:
Desk Review: The desk review should be compiled in a report format with clear citations.
Assessment design and related tools: The assessment design must include quantitative and qualitative data collection approaches, and be “ready-to-use” for RI’s assessment implementation team.
Outline of a program design: This should include elaboration of key partnerships, log frame, and description of implementation approach. A proposal is not required.
