Request for Proposals

November 17, 2014 – February 13, 2015

STRIVE, an associate award under the FIELD-Support LWA funded by the USAID Displaced Children and Orphans Fund (DCOF), aims to understand if improvements in the economic wellbeing of households translate into child-level impacts. Prime FHI 360 and partners Action for Enterprise (AFE), ACDI/VOCA, CARE, MEDA, Save the Children, implemented four field projects under the STRIVE program in Africa and Asia between 2008 and 2013.

Coupled with a robust monitoring and evaluation framework and learning strategy, STRIVE tracked and documented the impacts of these diverse interventions on household and child wellbeing including both economic (financial), and non-economic (health, education, nutrition, etc.) vulnerability factors. As a result, STRIVE aims to identify and demonstrate interventions that can sustainably increase household incomes and/or assets and document how such increases improve (or fail to improve) the lives of children.

FHI 360 seeks a consultant to:

The Consultant will work with the project team as a subject matter expert, facilitator, and writer to produce the symposium and associated documentation.
