Job Description

Promoting Adolescent Safe Spaces (PASS) Project in Northern Ghana 

Since 2016, UNICEF and UNFPA have been supporting partners like Norsaac to reach out to adolescent girls and boys with structured and sustained interventions to foster the emotional and social wellbeing to prevent and respond to child marriage and sexual and gender-based violence. However, not all of these programmes featured structured methodologies and tools to measure the changes in the knowledge, attitudes, practice and behaviours of girls and boys, as well as families within communities. Based on the lessons learnt, in 2019, such pre and post measurement methodologies and tools were developed by UNICEF, UNFPA, Norsaac and INGH to document outcome level change within the Promoting Adolescents Safe Spaces (PASS) Programme and same tools were used in 2020.

Norsaac has gotten an approval to extend the program within 3 Regions (Northern, North East and Savana Regions) and 6 Districts: Tolon, Kpandai, Bole, West Mamprusi, Tatale/Sanguli and Mamprugu Moadugri, covering a total of 30 Communities.

The overall Goal of the Project is to ensure that adolescent girls 10-19 at risk or affected by child marriage in programme areas are empowered with the relevant knowledge, skills and networks to build confidence, make informed decisions, express their voices, and access services and community support to prevent and respond to child marriage.

In order to achieve the goal, the four (4) Outcome Areas below will be pursued:

Outcome 1: Adolescent girls at risk of and affected by child marriage are better able to express and exercise their choices.

Outcome 2: Adolescent boys, families, traditional and religious leaders, community groups and other influencers demonstrate more gender-equitable attitudes and support for girls’ rights.

Outcome 3: Relevant sectoral systems deliver quality and cost-effective services to meet the needs of adolescent girls.

Outcome 4: Government and partners support the generation and use of robust data and evidence to inform policy and programming, track progress and document lessons.

The objectives of the baseline survey include the following:

  • Assess, prior to commencement of interventions,  the level of social and emotional well-being and knowledge, attitudes, and practices related to child marriage and gender-based violence, child protection, ASRH  and skills (e.g. transferable skills, skills for economic empowerment) particularly for the most vulnerable adolescent girls beneficiaries of the PASS Safe space adolescent programme  
  • Assess, prior to commencement of interventions, the current level of  knowledge, attitudes and practices in terms of gender equality, value of the girl child, and support  for adolescent girls, including delaying marriage among adolescent boys, caregivers, community members and leaders, and service providers in PASS programme districts and communities

Scope of the Work     

Norsaac is seeking to hire the services of an external consultant to coordinate data collection, analysis and reporting of the baseline study, working under the supervision of Norsaac and its partner, UNICEF. The consultant is expected to study the data collection tools that were initially developed for the same purpose and suggest changes if needed as well as generate other tools to cover relevant stakeholders before the commencement of data collection. The study should employ both quantitative and qualitative methods.

The consultant will analyze the collected data and produce a draft report, which will be presented    to Norsaac and UNICEF, before producing a final report encompassing the comments and additions.
