    Education Officer Job in Kenya

    Closing date: 15 May 2016

    Profile

    The vision of Xavier Project is for a world where everyone has the right to equal opportunities and protection wherever they live and whatever their background.

    This right is denied to refugees and we use education to change this.

    Education provides protection and is the best possible tool to help refugees to access equal opportunities.

    At Xavier Project we use pioneering education as the means to achieve our vision.

    We are promoting education for refugees in Kenya and Uganda in particular, so that they can have a positive difference on their communities, whether in their host countries or countries of origin.

    Xavier Project has two departments each with their own strategic objective designed to meet this vision.

    The Education Department aims to increase access to relevant, quality formal education delivered in a safe environment for refugee children.

    The Tamuka Department aims to make vocational and life-long learning available to all refugees even in emergency situations, primarily through the use of ICT.

    Xavier Project is registered as a local NGO in Uganda, an international NGO in Kenya and a company and charity in UK.

    All operations are in Kenya and Uganda, but a majority of funds are raised in UK.

    We have a three way partnership agreement between the branches of Xavier Project and one executive team primarily based in the Xavier Project headquarters in Nairobi.

    Xavier Project currently employs 28 permanent staff and has an annual income of $500,000 which has been increasing by 50% every year since its founding in 2008.

    Background

    Urban refugees in East Africa face unique challenges. Culturally, it is difficult to assimilate into their new communities as they can be victims of xenophobia and can struggle from language differences.

    They cannot easily find jobs in a saturated and often nepotistic job market.

    There are administrative barriers to economic sustainability such as the challenge of obtaining work permits, and the rejection of foreign qualifications from employers and institutions.

    At present many refugees in Nairobi or Kampala do not have access to quality, relevant education delivered in a safe environment and their opportunities in education lag behind those of their local counterparts.

    In both Kampala and Nairobi there are over 10,000 refugee children who are not in formal education, amounting to around 50% in Nairobi and 60% in Kampala.

    80% of those in formal education are not happy with the quality of the education they are receiving.

    Job Description and Expectations

    Xavier Project is partnering with UNICEF to provide access to education to out of school children of primary school going age across Nairobi, Kiambu, Kajiado and Mombasa Counties.

    The funds raised will be used to provide leverage for admission of identified out of school children and will directly support the schools.

    Note that this job does not involve raising funds for Xavier Project as an organisation but is more concerned with building the capacity of schools.

    Xavier Project is looking for an Education Officer who will:

  • Identify sources of income for government schools

  • Maintain updated records of donor information
  • Take part in preparing fundraising proposals and budgets
  • Record, monitor and report on financial progress
  • Liaise with other education staff to identify schools in need of financial aid
  • Participate in capacity building of Schools Board of Management on resource mobilization

    The Education Officer will work in partnership with other agencies to ensure that resources are saved and collaboration is maximised.

    The Education Officer will work closely with the Xavier Project CEO Edmund Page who is a qualified teacher, and the Kenya Director of Education to develop good working practice.

    TechnoServe Request for Expression of Interest (EOI) for Provision of Milk Traders Marketing Certification

    Request for Expression of Interest (EOI) for Provision of Milk Traders Marketing Certification

    TechnoServe works with enterprising people in the developing world to build competitive farms, businesses and industries.

    We are a nonprofit organization that develops business solutions to poverty by linking people to information, capital and markets.

    Our work is rooted in the idea that given the opportunity, hardworking men and women in even the poorest places can generate income, jobs and wealth for their families and communities.

    With more than four decades of proven results, we believe in the power of private enterprise to transform lives.

    Technoserve is working with Dairy Traders Association (DTA) a national organization of small scale milk traders and farmers that provide them with a forum to raise their concerns for improved business and better incomes.

    The dairy traders source milk from farmers and supply through to households, hotels, restaurants and processors.

    In 2013, Kenya Dairy Board (KDB) introduced legislation to ban the selling of ‘raw milk’.

    It was found that unprocessed and unpasteurized milk is dangerous to health because there is high prevalence of disease-causing bacteria.

    To address this issue, the legislation only allows for the sale of milk that is properly pasteurized, packaged and dispensed through official milk distribution channels.

    For traders to adhere to the KDB standards, traders must have approved equipment and machines for milk collection, chilling, handling, storage, transportation, and testing.

    In light of this recent government mandate, TechnoServe is facilitating DTA registered milk traders to explore avenues to comply with these quality certification systems.

    Working with KDB, DTA aims to give traders more time to comply with the raw milk ban, by putting in place interim measures that will make the transition smooth from trading in raw milk, to pasteurized milk.

    Such strategies might involve, upgrading storage, transport means and milk product packaging.

    Evidence Action Office Administration Associate Job in Kisumu, Kenya

    Vacancy: Associate - Office Administration

    Reporting to: Senior Associate: Office Administration

    Location: Kisumu, Kenya

    About Evidence Action:

    Evidence Action is assuming management and growth responsibility for two programs tested and incubated at Innovations for Poverty Action that are currently making a difference in the lives of millions of people in Africa and Asia:

    the Deworm the World Initiative (DTW) and Dispensers for Safe Water Initiative (DSW).

    Evidence Action scales proven development interventions and crafts resilient business models for long run success.

    Dispensers for Safe Water:

    Each year, over 1.8 million children under the age of five die from diarrhea, a leading cause of which is unsafe drinking water. DSW is an entrepreneurial team tasked with scaling the Chlorine Dispenser System (CDS) – a proven innovation for dramatically expanding access to water treatment at extremely low cost.

    DSW’s work is growing rapidly – we currently serve over 1 million people in Kenya, our primary country of operations, and plan to reach 25 million in the next 5 years.

    Our program has ambitious plans to expand in 2-3 countries in the coming 2 years.

    Our work is based on strong proof of Chlorine Dispenser impact – a randomized controlled trial in Western Kenya demonstrated a six-fold increase in the number of households treating their water with chlorine.

    Such a dramatic expansion in safe water usage will prevent over 1.4 million cases of diarrhea and 1,300 child deaths each year once we reach our Kenya target of 5 million people served.

    Deworm the World Initiative The Deworm the World Initiative (DtWi) actively supports the scale-up of school-based deworming programs worldwide to improve children’s health, education, and long-term development.

    Job Vacancy – Education Officer

    Location: Nairobi, Kenya

    Salary: 70,000 – 90,000 KSH per month (depending on experience of the applicant). Other benefits to be discussed

    Answers to: Xavier Project Kenya Education Director.

    Open to: Kenyan nationals and anyone with pre-existing permission to work in Kenya

    Profile

    The vision of Xavier Project is for a world where everyone has the right to equal opportunities and protection wherever they live and whatever their background.

    This right is denied to refugees and we use education to change this.

    Xavier Project currently employs 28 permanent staff and has an annual income of $500,000 which has been increasing by 50% every year since its founding in 2008.

    Background

    Urban refugees in East Africa face unique challenges.

    Culturally, it is difficult to assimilate into their new communities as they can be victims of xenophobia and can struggle from language differences.

    They cannot easily find jobs in a saturated and often nepotistic job market.

    There are administrative barriers to economic sustainability such as the challenge of obtaining work permits, and the rejection of foreign qualifications from employers and institutions.

    At present many refugees in Nairobi or Kampala do not have access to quality, relevant education delivered in a safe environment and their opportunities in education lag behind those of their local counterparts.

    In both Kampala and Nairobi there are over 10,000 refugee children who are not in formal education, amounting to around 50% in Nairobi and 60% in Kampala.

    80% of those in formal education are not happy with the quality of the education they are receiving.

    Job Description and Expectations

    Xavier Project is partnering with UNICEF to provide access to education to out of school children of primary school going age across Nairobi, Kiambu, Kajiado and Mombasa Counties.

    Through the partnership, we hope to provide access to education to over 7,000 out of school children and retain them in school. The Education Officer will support these schools in raising funds from local and international donors to cater for various school projects.

    The funds raised will be used to provide leverage for admission of identified out of school children and will directly support the schools.

    Note that this job does not involve raising funds for Xavier Project as an organisation but is more concerned with building the capacity of schools.

    Xavier Project is looking for an Education Officer who will:

  • Identify sources of income for government schools
  • Continuously liaise with donors locally and internationally to keep them motivated to continue supporting the programme, either financially or through gifts in kind.
  • Maintain updated records of donor information
  • Take part in preparing fundraising proposals and budgets
  • Record, monitor and report on financial progress
  • Liaise with other education staff to identify schools in need of financial aid
  • Participate in capacity building of Schools Board of Management on resource mobilization

    The Education Officer will work in partnership with other agencies to ensure that resources are saved and collaboration is maximised.

    The Education Officer will work closely with the Xavier Project CEO Edmund Page who is a qualified teacher, and the Kenya Director of Education to develop good working practice.

    Requirements

    Essential:

  • Must hold a Bachelor’s degree in a relevant field.
  • Extensive experience of not less than 5 years with demonstrated success in fundraising in an NGO context.
  • Excellent communication skills in English (both written and oral)

    GiveDirectly Field Manager Job in Kisumu, Kenya

    Vacancy: Field Manager

    Background:

    GiveDirectly is driving a re-evaluation of the assumptions underlying international philanthropy with a provocative model:

    we deliver donations directly to the extreme poor and let them decide what to do with them.

    This approach builds on two converging trends:

    the rapid spread of electronic last-mile payments solutions in the emerging markets, and the large body of experimental evidence showing that direct transfers are as or more cost-effective at reducing poverty than more traditional, top-down approaches.

    GiveDirectly’s field operations utilize state-of-the-art technology and business processes to deliver transfers securely, efficiently, and transparently.

    Our unorthodox approach – allowing the poor, and not the donor, to choose where they invest – has prompted debate in the popular press and among policy makers.

    GiveDirectly has been featured on NPR’s This American Life, and in Foreign Affairs, The Economist, and The New York Times.

    It was named one of the Top 10 Most Innovative Companies in Finance by FastCompany, one of the 25 Most Audacious Companies by Inc., and one of GiveWell’s top-rated charities for 4 years running.

    Overview: GiveDirectly is seeking a dynamic team of managers to help with the set-up of the country office and then to manage its operations.

    The Field Manager will serve as the key “eyes and ears” resource on the ground for the Field Director and will be responsible for regularly synthesizing updates on operational health.

    The role will reward exceptional personnel management, organizational skills, high-quality judgment on operational challenges, excellent attention to detail and a strong commitment towards building a scalable and better-leveraged field org.

    Responsibilities:

  • Org development
  • Assist in the hiring and training of new Field Officers and Associate Field Managers
  • Run performance reviews for direct reports and build their capacity to do the same for Field Officers
  • Over time, reduce dependence on senior management and create more leverage for the Country Director through capacity-building and delegation
  • Workflow management / tracking
  • Create work-plans for field teams in collaboration with Associate Field Managers
  • Manage Associate Field Managers and their field teams to execute against work-plans and productivity targets
  • Review weekly reports to track productivity and quality of service; own course correction if metrics are slipping
  • Formulate a plan for targeted monitoring / engagement while in the field
  • Risk management and process improvement
  • Anticipate areas of risk and create mitigation plans (e.g. coordination on complex research partnerships, political instability, slow-downs from pilots, etc.)
  • Assist Country Director with response to “crisis” events (e.g. refusals, government shut-down, coordinated fraud, etc.)
  • Serve as the organization’s engine for continuous improvement of the enrollment process and recipient experience by identifying key opportunities and executing on various initiatives
  • Support for auxiliary projects
  • Assist Country Director with hosting journalists, donors, and other external parties
  • Assist Country Director with communicating and executing new projects / pilots / technologies (e.g. messaging Segovia to field team, brainstorming options for community-based targeting, rolling out mobile app questions, etc.)
  • Team-building / morale
  • Monitor team dynamics and own follow-up on barometer activities
  • Identify opportunities for morale-building (e.g. retreats, team events, incentive schemes, etc.)

    Terms of Reference For a Consultancy To Develop A Joint Solutions Strategy and Performing Approach For Durable Solutions In Kenya

    Closing date: 02 May 2016

    Background

    Displacement in Eastern Africa is predominantly of a protracted nature. At the end of February 2016, there were 11.7 million people displaced in the Eastern Africa region.

    Of the total displaced population, 3.2 million are refugees while 8.5 million are IDPs having fled their homes mainly due to conflict, violence and human right violations (OCHA, February 2016).

    Durable solutions for the 596,045 refugees in Kenya (UNHCR, February 2016) has been in focus as a result of the protracted nature of displacement as well as declining donor funding for humanitarian operations.

    For the past two decades, Kenya has responded to refugee influxes from around the region resulting from crises in Somalia, Rwanda and South Sudan.

    Continued instability in Somalia and the resurgence of conflict in South Sudan following a flare up of ethno-political tensions amongst rival groups in South Sudan’s government, has displaced thousands to Ethiopia, Uganda and Kenya with little or no prospect of return.

    In 2014 however, Kenya, Somalia & UNHCR entered into a tri-partite agreement to facilitate the voluntary return (Volrep) of Somali refugees with over 12,000 returned since its inception.

    According to the voluntary repatriation operations strategy 2015-2019, the figures projected for return in 2016 are 100,000 with 150,000 in 2017, a further 130,000 in 2018 and finally 30,000 in 2019.

    As a party to the United Nations 1951 Refugee Convention, Kenya recognizes the three durable solutions namely voluntary return, local integration and resettlement.

    Currently, facilitated voluntary return arrangements are only available for Somali refugees and only recently introduced to Somali refugees in Kakuma as well as Dadaab refugee camps.

    The Regional Durable Solutions Secretariat (ReDSS) in 2015 developed a Solutions framework adapted from the IASC Framework on Durable Solutions for IDPs using 30 indicators organized around physical, material and legal safety to assess how far durable solutions for refugees in a particular context have been achieved.

    The framework analysis serves as an evidence base to enable relevant stakeholders to work more effectively and consistently in the search and realization of durable solutions. Furthermore, in a ReDSS study conducted in 2015 on opportunities created by devolved governance with regard to solutions, key recommendations included development of partnership strategies between development and humanitarian actors.

    A strategic response to refugee operations that builds on partnerships (both amongst humanitarian and development actors), provides a much sought after avenue for enhancing solutions based programming.

    In the acknowledgment that protracted displacements are neither short term challenges nor purely humanitarian, there needs a multi-sectoral approach that will enhance coordination in interventions.

    A sectoral analysis of NRC, IRC and DRC in Kenya shows operational presence in all refugee hosting areas with protection and livelihood activities (including skills training) ranging from shelter, education, food security and WASH and additional engagement in Volrep The significance of a joint strategy and a coordinated action through a joint programme design will enable NRC, DRC and IRC to effectively intervene with activities that specifically promote durable solutions with common outcomes.

    Consultant task DRC, NRC and IRC therefore seek to commission a consultant to develop a strategy on promoting durable solutions in Kenya.

    This will involve a comprehensive analysis on the programmatic aspects of interventions of NRC, DRC and IRC in Kenya that have advanced durable solutions for displaced persons.

    The consultancy shall identify opportunities for complementarity and draw out on best practices to be adopted or scaled up in joint programming.

    The consultancy shall thereafter develop a proposal incorporating joint projects that will mainstream a solutions approach.

    The joint solutions strategy will make use of available literature on the solutions framework and recommend approaches towards enhancing durable solutions for displaced populations in all phases of displacement and the corresponding actions of humanitarian and development actors.

    Specific objectives of the consultancy

    Present a comprehensive analysis of the durable solutions narrative in Kenya (policies, barriers and opportunities) and an actionable solutions strategy for advancing durable solutions in Kenya;

    Terms of Reference of The Experts Team - Review of the state of AnGR in Africa

    Closing date: 23 May 2016

    Background

    The African Union Interafrican Bureau for Animal Resources (AU-IBAR) is a specialized technical Office of the Department of Rural Economy and Agriculture (DREA) of the African Union Commission (AUC).

    AU-IBAR's mandate is to support and coordinate the utilization of livestock, fisheries and wildlife as a resource for both human wellbeing and economic development in the Member States of the African Union (AU).

    The mission of AU-IBAR is to provide leadership in the development of animal resources for Africa through supporting and empowering AU Member States and regional Economic Communities (RECs).

    The project "Strengthening the Capacity of African Countries to Conservation and Sustainable Utilization of African Animal Genetic Resources" aims at strengthening the capacity of African countries and Regional Economic Communities to sustainably use and conserve animal genetic resources (AnGR) through institutionalizing national and regional policy, legal and technical instruments and implementing actions that will result in judicious exploitation of AnGR in Africa.

    This will be achieved through:

  • Establishment of the status and trends of animal genetic resources in Africa
  • Development of Policy frameworks for the sustainable use of AnGR
  • Supporting and strengthening national and regional conservation and improvement strategies and initiatives
  • Increasing knowledge, attitude and practice of the contribution of livestock and livestock sector to economic growth, food security and poverty reduction.

    Context

    Africa is endowed with a rich diversity of Animal Genetic Resources (AnGR) for food and agriculture which are essential for food security, sustenance of livelihoods of hundreds of millions of people, for agriculture-led economic development and equitable growth.

    AnGR play a very important role in livestock production systems.

    These genetic resources possess important adaptive traits which make them cope with adverse conditions such as lack of feed and water, heat, disease pressure and therefore, making them more suitable for rearing in the sometimes harsh African environments.

    However, for various reasons, Africa has been losing some of its important animal genetic resources due to various factors including indiscriminate crossbreeding with exotic breeds, poor breeding programmes, lack of supportive policies and legislation and inadequate measures to ensure deliberate conservation of these resources.

    The need for Africa to develop its own State of AnGR report was recommended at the Project Inception Workshop in Abidjan in 2013 and this was endorsed by the first Project Steering Committee meeting in July 2014.

    As a result, the first African report on the State of African Animal Genetic Resources on the continent was developed.

    The data source for this report has been 40 questionnaires developed by AU-IBAR and completed by the Directorates of Animal production across the continent and 40 Country reports completed towards the 2nd SoW-AnGR.

    This publication is the first African assessment of the status and trends of AnGR and the state of institutional and technical capacity to manage and develop these important resources.

    The document serves as an updated reference and seeks to provide up-to-date information and data on the status of AnGR on the continent.

    It is anticipated that this first edition of the State of AnGR in Africa report, is a flagship continental document that will effectively guide the continent’s utilization and management of AnGR.

    The report is projected to be finalized by the end of May 2016 and will be officially launched by the Commissioner of DREA, thereby raising its profile to the appropriate level.

    The Genetics Project team has finalized the first draft of the document.

    However, there is a felt need for an independent expertise desirable for the finalization of the report.

    In the above regard AU-IBAR is through due diligence seeking to engage experts (5) to review and provide input for the publication of the State of Animal Genetic Resources in Africa.

    The specific objectives are:

  • To critical review the draft document for the quality, appropriateness and completeness of information provided
  • To provide all necessary missing information
  • To participate in a writeshop to finalize the document.

    Review Team

    The team will be composed of 05 renowned experts in the field of Animal Genetic resources in Africa.

    Reporting

    The results of the peer review will be documented in a final report that will contain the observations, good practices, recommendations and suggestions of the review team.

    Documentation for Review

    The Project team will make any relevant reference material available to the Team, where appropriate sufficiently in advance to allow preparation of the experts.

    This documentation will cover:

  • Draft publication
  • Other relevant national documents that need to be considered, e.g. national legislation and regulatory requirements.
  • Financial Consideration and Method of Payment

    Each expert will carry a lump sum of USD 1500, which is 300 USD x 5 days (One Thousand Five Hundred) all inclusive.

    Other fees related to the writeshop (Travel cost, and DSA) will be paid by AU-IBAR.

    Selection of Consultants

    The selection of the consultant will be based on the technical evaluation.

    The consultant with the highest technical score will be selected.

    Evaluation Criteria

    The applications will be evaluated on the basis of the relevant technical qualifications, experience and competence of the candidates.

    Consultancy to Formulate Terms of Reference and Modality for Establishing Regional Aquaculture Networks in Africa Job in Kenya

    Closing date: 23 May 2016

    Introduction

    Aquaculture is growing at an impressive rate in Africa and slowly becoming a very fast growing animal‐food‐producing sector.

    African aquaculture production in 2012 was about 2.23 % (1 485 367 metric tonnes) of the global total (66 633 253 metric tonnes).

    This is impressive to the situation back in 1990 where the African production constituted about 0.62 % (81 015 metric tonnes) of the global production (13 074 679 metric tonnes), FAO, 2014A.

    The sector contributes to about 0.15 % of national GDP and 0.96 % of agricultural GDP on the continent (FAO, 2014B) and employs about 920000 workers which is about 7 5% of total number of workers (12,269,000) in the fisheries and aquaculture sector on the continent (FAO, 2014).

    Females make up about 50 % of the workforce in the aquaculture sector mainly in the post-harvest sector.

    As further indication of growth in the sector, there has been spectacular increase in the total number fish farmers from 65000 in 1995 to 298000 in 2012 in Africa.

    Aquaculture technological development and production is however far behind Asia as a continent which contributes to nearly 90 % of global production.

    In Africa, in 2012, North Africa contributed to 1. 55 % (1 030 675 metric tonnes) to total African aquaculture production with Egypt being the main aquaculture producer country whilst Sub-Saharan Africa contributed about 0.68 % (454 691 metric tonnes) with Nigeria being the major producer.

    The sector is contributing to readily available protein supplies, income generation and livelihoods in rural communities.

    Despite some advances in commercialized practices, the culture system is primarily subsistence based on the continent which has inhibited the realization of full anticipated contribution to nutrition, poverty alleviation and economic growth.

    The sector’s growth is however partly hampered by lack of recognized adequate information and dissemination systems on best practices, technologies, markets etc. on the continent.

    Rationale

    The growing aquaculture industry has stimulated the proliferation of clusters of associations mainly at national levels to advance the causes and protect the interest of various aspects of the industry.

    Some of the associations are species-based (e.g. catfish, tilapia farmers associations etc.), whilst others have interest that on post-harvest activities (mainly processors, women) and some advocates generally for aquaculture sector at national level.

    A key challenge to sustainable aquaculture in Africa is the limited information on technologies and best culture practices, market information, business models on getting started etc.

    available to the industry practitioners or prospective investors.

    This inadequacy has had negative impact on the development and a major cause for the still heavily imbibed traditional culture systems.

    These multiple associations with diverse aim and purposes may have been established to generally support the development of the sector by addressing some of these key challenges.

    But their support had not made any tangible impact on the development of the sector and is mainly limited to national levels.

    The fragmented nature of these associations at national levels preclude any level of coordination and hence support to farmers by way of structured information dissemination on best practices or lessons.

    The capacity to support the constituent members of these national associations can be strengthened by institutional arrangement at regional levels linked to these national associations.

    The institutional arrangement at regional levels could be in the form of regional network that could be construed as ‘one stop’ information clearance house for aquaculture development.

    At continental level, there is in existence an Aquaculture Network for Africa (ANAF) and the Committee for Inland Fisheries and Aquaculture.

    These institutions are facing challenges in supporting member states for aquaculture development.

    There is a need to establish regional networks for aquaculture which could be the pillar to support or as a forerunner for an effective continental apex body.

    The proposed networks should be constituted out of and/or recognized by various national aquaculture associations as a network through access to information on technology, feeds, fingerlings, trade and market data etc.

    can easily be available.

    This hypothesis is premised on the assumption that the regional networks would bridge the information gap between an overarching continental body and the national associations.

    The proposed regional networks would have identified linkages through the AFRM working groups to enhance their capacity and seeking external information on technologies, research and development, lessons and best practices.

    The challenge how is to work out the various options on establishing regional networks for aquaculture, the approach to establishing a sustainable network and their terms of references and modul operandus.

    There is therefore to carry out a consultancy for the development of a framework for establishment of regional aquaculture networks.

    Objectives

    The overall objective of the consultancy is to develop a framework for the establishment of regional aquaculture networks.

    Specifically, the objectives would be:

  • Background of existing continental and regional aquaculture networks on lessons learnt and best practices

  • Propose an institutional arrangement and linkage with, for example, the AFRM aquaculture working group
  • Propose a mechanism for sustainability of the networks
  • Prepare and submit a comprehensive report on the above

    Qualification and Experience

  • The qualified candidate should have a post-graduate degree in natural resources, policy and development planning or social sciences.

    Request for Proposals (RFP)

    Consultancy to Develop Greenhouse Gas (GHG) Inventory for Third National Communication and Biennial Update Report

    Background:

    The Greenhouse Gas (GHG) inventory is an essential part of national communications of countries that are Party to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC).

    In Kenya, an inventory of GHG emissions was conducted during the First National Communications, published and submitted to the UNFCCC in October 2002.

    The Initial National Communication GHG emissions were calculated in the following sectors:

    Energy, Land-Use Change and Forestry (LUCF), Agriculture, Industrial Processes and Waste.

    The main gases listed are carbon dioxide (CO2), methane (CH4), nitrous oxide (N2O), nitrogen oxides (NOx ), carbon monoxide (CO), Non-Methane Volatile Organic Compounds (NMVOC).

    Emissions of other gases such as hydro fluorocarbons (HFCs) per fluorocarbons (PFCs) and sulphur hexafluoride (SF6) were considered negligible.

    The IPCC’s 2006 revised guidelines on GHG emissions and emission factors were used.

    Kenya is also in the process of finalizing its Second National Communication (SNC).

    The GHG inventory chapter within the SNC outlines the greenhouse gas emissions and removals by sinks for the year 2000, as well as additional years between 1995 and 2010.

    Objective

    The overall objective of the assignment is to develop Kenya’s greenhouse gas inventory for use in the Third National Communication and the first Biennial Update Report for Kenya.

    Terms Of Reference-Video Editor

    Closing date: 23 Apr 2016

    Organizational background

    Adeso is an expanding and vibrant African based international development and humanitarian organization.

    At Adeso, we work with African communities who are yet to realize their full potential; working inside these communities to create environments in which Africans can thrive.

    Our belief that economic, social and environmental security is the bedrock of a healthy community drives the nature and intent of our programming.

    We work to prevent and overcome situations that adversely affect community well-being by: reinvigorating the economy, developing skills for life and work, providing humanitarian aid, and influencing policy.

    For the past 20 years we have strengthened rural livelihoods through environmental awareness, training, technology transfer and innovative humanitarian projects in pursuit of a peaceful, self-reliant, and greener future.

    Adeso is an exciting and dynamic organization experiencing managed rapid growth.

    It offers sound employment conditions with opportunities for personal growth and development.

    Project summary

    Adeso together with other local and national NGOs from the global south have come together to form a global network which will be launched in May 2016 at the World Humanitarian Summit in Istanbul, Turkey.

    The creation of this network stems from a desire by local and national NGOs from the global south to find practical solutions to the challenges they face in the current humanitarian system.

    The objective of the network is to provide a forum where local and national NGOs can influence the policies and practices of humanitarian and development systems that affect their operations and the wellbeing of the communities in which they live and work.

    Scope work

    To ensure that this globally important initiative gets off to the best start possible, the network has engaged videographers from different regions to collect videos and photos, and is currently looking to contract the services of a video editor to collate this material into a final short HD documentary and photos which amplify the voices of disaster affected communities and local and national NGOs working with these communities.

    The goal of the project is to produce a large, visually effective, high quality and varied portfolio photos and a 5-minute video for the purposes of amplifying and taking stock of the work local and national NGOs are doing within their communities.

    The video and photos will therefore showcase:

  • A narrative about the impact of local disaster response from a first-person perspective
  • The backstory of national and local NGOs in the global south, specifically focusing on the work they have done and are doing in their communities
  • The experience of communities working with local and national NGOs as first responders
  • The successes and the challenges local and national NGOs face as they try to give life saving support to their communities
  • The views of local and national NGOs on the nature of the current humanitarian system; identifying the gaps and the opportunities to make the system more localised and people-centred
  • The views of local and national NGOs on the need for a global network for local and national NGOs in the global south

    The final video and photos will be used in the following ways:

  • To serve as an advocacy tool in supporting the formation of the network, and will acknowledge the roles of local and national NGOs and the need for reform of the current humanitarian system
  • The short documentary produced will displayed at the WHS in the network’s exhibition booth. The photos and other shorter videos will be used on the network’s platforms including press releases, web, social media and reports.

    The responsibility of the editor will therefore be:

  • Video editing
  • Audio editing
  • Photo editing
  • Edit video and web material as needed
  • Output final cuts to tape and web clips
  • Graphics production
  • Sound mix
  • Troubleshoot technical problems The network will provide the video editor with a draft storyboard, but the service producer will also be expected to contribute to the creative story-telling process.

    Specifically, the service provider will be in charge of the artistic direction of the film and photography and the development of the final detailed storyboard, based on initial inputs provided by the network’s secretariat.

    A first storyboard-writing meeting will be organized after the signing of the contract and another meeting will be scheduled throughout the post-production process.

    The service provider takes full responsibility for the technical part of the post-production including sourcing of royalty-free music to accompany the video, if needed.

    Consultancy period

    The production of the videos and photos will take place towards the end of April 2016.

    Deliverables

    At the end of the project, the video editor will be required to provide:

  • One fully-produced clip of approximately five minutes in length in 1080p (HD). The video editor will provide all post-production support including editing, sound mixing, transitions, titles, credits and effects.
  • Full usage rights for music (or music for which copyright has been granted)
  • High-quality and high-resolution, edited and captioned pictures
  • The editor might also be required to edit other short clips for social media usage

    Imagery style

    We use a reportage style for all of our photography and videography to ensure authenticity and re-enforce our honest values, alongside the meaning and conviction behind our thinking.

    The subjects within the image should appear natural, relaxed and images should not be posed.

    The final product should tell a story about the rationale for the network and should not be superficial with an over-use of added effects.

    Qualifications:

  • Outstanding video and audio editing skills
  • Skilled in the following industry tools: Final Cut Pro, After FX and Pro Tools
  • Experience in digitizing and video streaming for the web and other multimedia services
  • Minimum five years’ experience carrying out similar projects in the global south region;
  • Experience producing short videos for non-profit organizations;
  • Proven ability to work in multicultural environment.
  • Ability to edit materials from a culturally sensitive perspective
  • Professional work ethic, integrity, and initiative
  • Knowledge of international development issues a plus

    Terms of payment

    How to apply:

    All applicants must meet the minimum requirements described above.

    Each application package should include the following:

  • A one-page work plan
  • Cost per day
  • A minimum of three samples of recent work: online portfolios and links to video work are preferred.

    Lutheran World Federation (LWF), Plan International (PI), Save the Children International (SCI), World Vision International (WVI), UNICEF, and UNHCR.

    The purpose of the RISP is to provide regional guidance on, and facilitate cross border, inter-agency sharing of personal data in relation to unaccompanied and separated children (UASC) among UNHCR, NGO partners (through the Inter-Agency Child Protection Information Management System (CPMIS)/Rapid FTR Tools.
