    Vitamin A Coverage Survey in WINNN implementing States - Consultancy

    JOBfrom Save the Children Closing date: 20 Jan 2017 Introduction The MNCH week is a weeklong event that aims to deliver a package of high-impact, low-cost maternal, newborn and child health interventions, proven to be highly effective in both reducing mortality rates and improving mother and child health. The MNCH Week is held twice (May and November) every year in Nigeria to deliver a set of interventions that include Vitamin A supplementation (VAS), deworming, immunization, Nutrition assessment, Iron-folate supplementation and health promotion on hand washing, early initiation, exclusive breastfeeding, complementary feeding to mention a few. The MNCHW is a program that is also aimed at strengthening the Primary Health Care System. Project Background Working to Improve Nutrition in Northern Nigeria (WINNN) is a six year (September 2011 – August 2017) DFID funded nutrition project being implemented in five northern Nigeria states namely; Jigawa, Katsina, Kebbi, Yobe and Zamfara States. The Implementing partners of WINNN are UNICEF, Save the Children (SCI) and Action Against Hunger (AAH) while the Operation Research and Impact Evaluation component of the program is conducted by consortium of research institutes lead by Oxford Policy Management (OPM). The WINNN program delivers a number of evidence based, cost-effective direct interventions for the prevention and treatment of malnutrition in children under 5, including vitamin A supplementation and deworming, Iron and Folate supplementation for pregnant women, the promotion of optimal Infant and Young Child Feeding (IYCF) practices and Community-based Management of Acute Malnutrition (CMAM). The project also supports the Government to strengthen the capacity to develop and implement cost effective nutrition program, increases political and financial commitment to nutrition. By 2017 WINNN aims to have contributed to the reduction of the prevalence of stunting, wasting and underweight by up to 20% over the 6 year period, thus contributing to a 43% reduction in childhood mortality. Justification Information reported on Vitamin A Supplementation (VAS) is often based on administrative data from “tally sheets” that record the number of 6 ‐ 59 month children receiving VAS at given health post. The indicator compares children supplemented against an estimated number of children that age living in the health post catchment area (target) calculated from the projection of the population Census 2016. These data are consolidated up through the health system infrastructure (i.e. health facility to the LGA, LGA to State and finally to National level) to arrive at National VAS coverage estimates. Discrepancies between this data and that of SMART surveys suggest that this method may be inaccurate. The proposed Vitamin A Coverage survey is in response to the recommendations from the DFID 2016 Annual Review of the programme on the need to conduct a survey to validate administrative coverage data for Vitamin A distributed during the Maternal Newborn and Child Health Weeks.The survey will be led by a consultant with support from the technical team of WINNN. Goal Assess the coverage of VAS during MNCHW in the WINNN implemented states in order to improve the planning, implementation and quality of VAS in view of WINNN commencing the implementation of its Exit strategy in early 2017. Objectives Estimate the coverage of VAS during the November 2016 round of MNCHW in WINNN implementing states Compare with administrative data reported by State Government and analyse discrepancies Identify barriers to access and utilization of VAS services Methodology The Vitamin A Coverage Survey will be based on cluster sampling using a 30x30 approach to reach 900 children and the utilization of probability proportional to population size for cluster selection in implementing states with data collation carried out within 5 days. This proposed sampling method may be subject to review should the engaged consultant present a superior argument for a change of approach.Data collection will be through Household survey, ideally data should be collected with android phones. Data collection January 2017 Android phone: to be provided by the consultant Key Deliverables / Outputs Final survey protocol – methodology and comprehensive tools for data collection in relation to MNCHWs protocol and interventions.

    Find out about our history and values

    Humanitarian situation and needs

    With the biggest population in Africa, (between 178.000.000 and 200.000.000 habitants), Nigeria is ranked as the first economy in Africa thanks to oil and petroleum products as well as mineral resources (gold, iron, diamonds, copper etc…). Despite a strong economy, Nigeria suffers from huge socio-economic inequalities, and from high rates of corruption, at every level.

    In 2015, presidential elections were held and led to the election of Muhammad Buhari (former military) to replace Goodluck Jonathan. During the first months of his election, he has shown particular efforts to get progressively rid of corruption, and has officially announced that he would stop Boko Haram from harming people.

    Boko Haram (meaning Western education is forbidden/ is a sin), renamed Islamic State in Western Africa after it pledged allegiance to the group Islamic State in april 2015, is a Sunni terrorist and jihadist group seeking to create a Kalifate in western Africa ruled by the sharia law.

    Created in 2002 by Mohamed Yusuf in Maiduguri (State of Borno), the group has been carrying out armed attacks on civilian populations since 2011. Abubakar Shekau has taken over the leadership of the group after Yusuf died in detention in 2009 and has radicalizeds BH’s actions in the Lake Chad Basin.

    From 2013, Boko Haram exported its action abroad, in Cameroon, Chad and Niger and was linked to a number of attacks kidnapping, particularly in Northern Cameroon.

    The intensification of conflict in north east states of, Borno, Adamawa and Yobe has inevitably resulted in the displacement of people across the troubled states. As of today, OCHA estimated that 7 million people are in need of humanitarian assistance, of whom 1.8 million are displaced in the sole city of Maiduguri.

    The main need is related to Food Security, and access to basic services (Water, Health, and Sanitation).

    If a regional force made up of troops from Nigeria, Niger, Chad and Cameroon launched a military offensive against Boko Haram in early 2015 and resulted in significant territorial losses for the insurgent group.

    In August 2016, Al-Barnawi was appointed as the new leader by the high commandment of ISIS for the western African province of the Islamic State, which caused a scission inside the group between ISWA (Islamic State in Western Africa) led by Al-Barnawi and Boko Haram “historical channel” led by Abubakar Shekau.

    This scission might cause changes in the security context in the coming months. Armed clashes are still ongoing in Borno state drastically reducing access to the vulnerable populations outside Maiduguri, in Local Government Areas of Borno State.

    Our action in the field

    PUI is present in Nigeria since April 2016, and wishes to cover the needs of crisis affected people in Borno State, and particularly in Maiduguri city.

    In order to perform the objective mentioned above, Première Urgence Internationale aims to develop a comprehensive integrated approach, targeting the people’s needs in Food Security, Health, Shelter and WASH.

    Humanitarian situation and needs

    With the biggest population in Africa, (between 178.000.000 and 200.000.000 habitants), Nigeria is ranked as the first economy in Africa thanks to oil and petroleum products as well as mineral resources (gold, iron, diamonds, copper etc…). Despite a strong economy, Nigeria suffers from huge socio-economic inequalities, and from high rates of corruption, at every level.

    In 2015, presidential elections were held and led to the election of Muhammad Buhari (former military) to replace Goodluck Jonathan. During the first months of his election, he has shown particular efforts to get progressively rid of corruption, and has officially announced that he would stop Boko Haram from harming people.

    Boko Haram (meaning Western education is forbidden/ is a sin), renamed Islamic State in Western Africa after it pledged allegiance to the group Islamic State in april 2015, is a Sunni terrorist and jihadist group seeking to create a Kalifate in western Africa ruled by the sharia law.

    Created in 2002 by Mohamed Yusuf in Maiduguri (State of Borno), the group has been carrying out armed attacks on civilian populations since 2011. Abubakar Shekau has taken over the leadership of the group after Yusuf died in detention in 2009 and has radicalizeds BH’s actions in the Lake Chad Basin.

    From 2013, Boko Haram exported its action abroad, in Cameroon, Chad and Niger and was linked to a number of attacks kidnapping, particularly in Northern Cameroon. The intensification of conflict in north east states of, Borno, Adamawa and Yobe has inevitably resulted in the displacement of people across the troubled states.

    As of today, OCHA estimated that 7 million people are in need of humanitarian assistance, of whom 1.8 million are displaced in the sole city of Maiduguri. The main need is related to Food Security, and access to basic services (Water, Health, and Sanitation).

    If a regional force made up of troops from Nigeria, Niger, Chad and Cameroon launched a military offensive against Boko Haram in early 2015 and resulted in significant territorial losses for the insurgent group.

    In August 2016, Al-Barnawi was appointed as the new leader by the high commandment of ISIS for the western African province of the Islamic State, which caused a scission inside the group between ISWA (Islamic State in Western Africa) led by Al-Barnawi and Boko Haram “historical channel” led by Abubakar Shekau.

    This scission might cause changes in the security context in the coming months. Armed clashes are still ongoing in Borno state drastically reducing access to the vulnerable populations outside Maiduguri, in Local Government Areas of Borno State.

    Our action in the field

    PUI is present in Nigeria since April 2016, and wishes to cover the needs of crisis affected people in Borno State, and particularly in Maiduguri city.

    In order to perform the objective mentioned above, Première Urgence Internationale aims to develop a comprehensive integrated approach, targeting the people’s needs in Food Security, Health, Shelter and WASH.

    Consultant-Knowledge management and communication-Nigeria

    Deadline to apply January 3rd 2017

    Scope of Work

    International Communication Consultant – ENGINE Program

    Background

    The Coca-Cola Company, in strategic partnership with the UK Department for International Development's Girls Education Challenge (DfID-GEC), is funding an innovative, multi-year, girl-focused project - Educating Nigerian Girls in New Enterprises (ENGINE) - to improve the learning outcomes and economic status of 18,000 marginalized adolescent girls.

    Mercy Corps Nigeria leads the implementation of the ENGINE program in the Northern states of Kano and Kaduna, the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), and the metropolis of Lagos, targeting both Out-of- School Girls (OSGs) and In-School-Girls (ISGs) within 9-month intervention and implementation cycles.

    The ENGINE program is based upon a theory of change stating that when marginalised girls complete a full cycle of education and are supported by gatekeepers, they will be more skilled employees and have increased earning power and increased decision-making within the household.

    A chain of impact results are expected at the girl, household, business, community government policy and regional levels to achieve project outcomes following sustained engagement with gatekeepers including parents, faith & traditional leaders, government, teachers and other relevant stakeholders.

    Purpose of Consultancy: With the ENGINE project in the exit phase and implementation activities gradually winding down, the emphasis is increasingly shifting to creating impact content, donor-focused reports, and relevant documents to secure commitments from stakeholders who support girls' education and economic empowerment.

    The consultancy will focus on creating content for communication materials aimed at high-level stakeholders and the donor community to increase funding opportunities for future projects.

    Consequently, the consultant will develop content for strategic communication via scripted dramas, poems, recitations, infographics, newsletters, pamphlets, stickers and other Information, Education and Communication (IEC) materials targeted at changing the perception of gatekeepers on girls' education and economic participation. Each communication material is expected to tell the ENGINE story.

    Specific Tasks: The consultant will be required to undertake the following tasks:

  • Review end of project report and ensure that the report covers outcomes and outputs of the ENGINE program from inception to completion.
  • Synthesize project impact statements into an easy-to-read report for segment stakeholders.
  • Review 40 success stories for the ENGINE stories of change pack to ensure compliance with DFID standards.

    Nigeria - Country Administrator

    COOPI – Nigeria

    COOPI Cooperazione Internazionale, is a humanitarian, non-confessional and independent organization founded in 1965 in Milan, Italy. For more than 50 years** we have been dedicated to breaking the cycle of poverty and to supporting populations affected by wars, socio-economic crises or natural disasters in their path to recovery and sustainable development, by making use of the professionalism of local and international operators, and through our partnerships with public and private bodies and civil society organizations.

    Context and background

    Since the declaration of state of emergency in the Nigerian federal States of Borno, Yobe, and Adamawa, the escalation of the Boko Haram insurgency has led to multiple displacement crises, with communities fleeing their area of origin to take refuge in camps or host communities.

    In 2014 there was a substantial increase in violence related to Boko Haram and the counter insurgency operations, consequently creating acute and largely unmet humanitarian needs, as IDPs are cut off from their homes and livelihoods, basic services, kinship and social ties.

    In September 2014, COOPI began operating in north eastern Nigeria in response to the humanitarian crisis caused by the insurgency, established its operation in Bauchi State and later expanded to Yobe State considering the heightened presence of IDPs in the LGAs of Fika, Damaturu, Potiskum, Geidam and Yunusari. Recently, COOPI initiated an assessment mission in Borno State and establishes

    a presence in Maiduguri to launch operations in the most affected area of the Lake Chad crisis. COOPI is currently operating in 5 LGAs in Yobe State, reaching about 25,000 individuals among IDPs and host communities with a multi-sectoral intervention covering nutrition, food security and child protection.

    COOPI has recently developed a cash & voucher based response system in Nigeria to address the food insecure communities while integrating this approach with a nutrition component – community outreach, referral system, IYCF campaign and appropriate therapeutic services addressed to malnourished children and pregnant and breastfeeding women.

    Given the unfolding large scale emergency in the north eastern Nigeria, COOPI plans to scale up its

    current operations in Yobe state and reach newly accessible areas, in addition to areas receiving Nigerian returnees from Niger, with its multi-sectoral services including food security, cash transfer programming, nutrition and protection.

    Furthermore, COOPI plans to set-up operations to extend its humanitarian services to affected populations in Borno state, including the capital Maiduguri and newly accessible areas in the state, where the most vulnerable populations are stuck with insufficient basic services to respond to their immediate needs in a dignified manner.

    Objectives and responsibilities of the position

    We are looking for a highly qualified Country Administrator with overall responsibility for supervision, management and quality implementation of all aspects of COOPI financial and administrative operations in Nigeria.

  • Expenses planning and monitoring: In collaboration with the Project Manager (and the logistician if present) he/she makes the project’s financial planning. He/she monitors expenses, in accordance with the budget. He/she provides the accountancy data to the Project Manager so as to allow him to monitor and plan the expenditures and to request funds.
  • Contract modifications and administrative documents: He/she collaborates with the Project Manager in the elaboration of contract modifications (including the budget), and in the preparation of all necessary projects documents.
  • Financial reporting: In coordination with the Head of Mission and with the Project Manager he/she prepares the intermediate and final financial reports for the projects under his/her responsibility.
  • Budget preparation: Support the Head of Mission and Project Managers in budget preparation as well as proposals development.
  • Staff management: He/she plans the work, supervises, and collaborate to train the staff of the project’s accounting-administrative area upon request by the Head of Mission.

  • Procurement: He/she provide technical oversight to the procurement process and ensure proper supply chain management procedures are in place and that standard logistics and related administrative systems are established and implemented within COOPI country programme.

    Nigeria - Country Administrator

    COOPI – Nigeria

    COOPI Cooperazione Internazionale, is a humanitarian, non-confessional and independent organization founded in 1965 in Milan, Italy. For more than 50 years** we have been dedicated to breaking the cycle of poverty and to supporting populations affected by wars, socio-economic crises or natural disasters in their path to recovery and sustainable development, by making use of the professionalism of local and international operators, and through our partnerships with public and private bodies and civil society organizations.

    Context and background

    Since the declaration of state of emergency in the Nigerian federal States of Borno, Yobe, and Adamawa, the escalation of the Boko Haram insurgency has led to multiple displacement crises, with communities fleeing their area of origin to take refuge in camps or host communities.

    In 2014 there was a substantial increase in violence related to Boko Haram and the counter insurgency operations, consequently creating acute and largely unmet humanitarian needs, as IDPs are cut off from their homes and livelihoods, basic services, kinship and social ties.

    In September 2014, COOPI began operating in north eastern Nigeria in response to the humanitarian crisis caused by the insurgency, established its operation in Bauchi State and later expanded to Yobe State considering the heightened presence of IDPs in the LGAs of Fika, Damaturu, Potiskum, Geidam and Yunusari. Recently, COOPI initiated an assessment mission in Borno State and establishes

    a presence in Maiduguri to launch operations in the most affected area of the Lake Chad crisis. COOPI is currently operating in 5 LGAs in Yobe State, reaching about 25,000 individuals among IDPs and host communities with a multi-sectoral intervention covering nutrition, food security and child protection.

    COOPI has recently developed a cash & voucher based response system in Nigeria to address the food insecure communities while integrating this approach with a nutrition component – community outreach, referral system, IYCF campaign and appropriate therapeutic services addressed to malnourished children and pregnant and breastfeeding women.

    Given the unfolding large scale emergency in the north eastern Nigeria, COOPI plans to scale up its

    current operations in Yobe state and reach newly accessible areas, in addition to areas receiving Nigerian returnees from Niger, with its multi-sectoral services including food security, cash transfer programming, nutrition and protection.

    Furthermore, COOPI plans to set-up operations to extend its humanitarian services to affected populations in Borno state, including the capital Maiduguri and newly accessible areas in the state, where the most vulnerable populations are stuck with insufficient basic services to respond to their immediate needs in a dignified manner.

    Objectives and Responsibilities of the position

    We are looking for a highly qualified Country Administrator with overall responsibility for supervision, management and quality implementation of all aspects of COOPI financial and administrative operations in Nigeria.

He/she ensures the correct filing of all project’s administrative documents.
  • Expenses planning and monitoring: In collaboration with the Project Manager (and the logistician if present) he/she makes the project’s financial planning. He/she monitors expenses, in accordance with the budget. He/she provides the accountancy data to the Project Manager so as to allow him to monitor and plan the expenditures and to request funds.
  • Contract modifications and administrative documents: He/she collaborates with the Project Manager in the elaboration of contract modifications (including the budget), and in the preparation of all necessary projects documents.
  • Financial reporting: In coordination with the Head of Mission and with the Project Manager he/she prepares the intermediate and final financial reports for the projects under his/her responsibility.
  • Budget preparation: Support the Head of Mission and Project Managers in budget preparation as well as proposals development.

Upon request her/she collaborates to staff evaluation activities. She/he will be the focal point of the complaint mechanism and the code of conduct
  • Procurement: He/she provide technical oversight to the procurement process and ensure proper supply chain management procedures are in place and that standard logistics and related administrative systems are established and implemented within COOPI country programme.

    Humanitarian situation and needs

    With the biggest population in Africa, (between 178.000.000 and 200.000.000 habitants), Nigeria is ranked as the first economy in Africa thanks to oil and petroleum products as well as mineral resources (gold, iron, diamonds, copper etc…). Despite a strong economy, Nigeria suffers from huge socio-economic inequalities, and from high rates of corruption, at every level.

    In 2015, presidential elections were held and led to the election of Muhammad Buhari (former military) to replace Goodluck Jonathan. During the first months of his election, he has shown particular efforts to get progressively rid of corruption, and has officially announced that he would stop Boko Haram from harming people.

    Boko Haram (meaning Western education is forbidden/ is a sin), renamed Islamic State in Western Africa after it pledged allegiance to the group Islamic State in april 2015, is a Sunni terrorist and jihadist group seeking to create a Kalifate in western Africa ruled by the sharia law.

    Created in 2002 by Mohamed Yusuf in Maiduguri (State of Borno), the group has been carrying out armed attacks on civilian populations since 2011. Abubakar Shekau has taken over the leadership of the group after Yusuf died in detention in 2009 and has radicalizeds BH’s actions in the Lake Chad Basin.

    From 2013, Boko Haram exported its action abroad, in Cameroon, Chad and Niger and was linked to a number of attacks kidnapping, particularly in Northern Cameroon. The intensification of conflict in north east states of, Borno, Adamawa and Yobe has inevitably resulted in the displacement of people across the troubled states.

    As of today, OCHA estimated that 7 million people are in need of humanitarian assistance, of whom 1.8 million are displaced in the sole city of Maiduguri. The main need is related to Food Security, and access to basic services (Water, Health, Sanitation ).

    If A regional force made up of troops from Nigeria, Niger, Chad and Cameroon launched a military offensive against Boko Haram in early 2015 and resulted in significant territorial losses for the insurgent group.

    In August 2016, Al-Barnawi was appointed as the new leader by the high commandment of ISIS for the western African province of the Islamic State, which caused a scission inside the group between ISWA (Islamic State in Western Africa) led by Al-Barnawi and Boko Haram “historical channel” led by Abubakar Shekau.

    This scission might cause changes in the security context in the coming months. Armed clashes are still ongoing in Borno state drastically reducing access to the vulnerable populations outside Maiduguri, in Local Government Areas of Borno State.

    Our action in the field

    PUI is present in Nigeria since April 2016, and wishes to extend its coverage of the needs of vulnerable population in Borno State, and particularly in Maiduguri city.

    In a comprehensive and integrated approach, Première Urgence Internationale wishes to develop its positioning in Health, Shelter and WASH to complete its current intervention in Food security.
