Catholic Relief Services Enumerators Jobs in Kenya

Catholic Relief Services (CRS) carries out the commitment of the Bishops of the United States to assist the poor and vulnerable overseas. Our Catholic identity is at the heart of our mission and operations.


We welcome as a part of our staff and as partners, people of all faiths and secular traditions who share our values and our commitment to serving those in need.

The purpose of this scope of work is to outline the role of enumerators in the execution of the 4Children (Coordinating Comprehensive Care for Children) tracer study on households graduated from the APHIAplus IMARISHA project.

Background

4Children is a global five‐year USAID‐funded project implemented by a consortium of organizations led by Catholic Relief Services (CRS), with partners IntraHealth, Maestral, Pact, Plan International and Westat. The 4Children project is designed to improve health and wellbeing outcomes for Orphans and Vulnerable Children (OVC) affected by HIV and AIDS, and other adversities.

4Children draws on global evidence that illustrates that HIV and other adversities are best prevented and addressed when families and children have access to both high quality health and social welfare services.

4Children helps countries identify practical and appropriate policies, programs and services that reduce the risk of HIV and maltreatment and promote child well-being.

4Children promotes approaches that address the unique needs of each child and family, including strengthening the front line social service workforce, case management system and services that promote positive parenting and increase household resilience.

The overall objective of this study is to trace a sample of households that exited the APHIAplus IMARISHA project via graduation, to understand the perceived changes in OVC well-being since exiting the program.

The information on the post-graduation well-being of OVC and households will contribute to the national and global knowledge and learning on the OVC case plan achievement approach, its effect on the wellbeing of households who have left via this route and implications for future programming.

The study will seek to answer the following research questions:

  • What are the changes (if any) perceived by graduated households regarding wellbeing of their children since graduation (in terms of Healthy, Safe, Stable, and Schooled)?
  • How has the capacity of caregivers to address the basic needs of children in their care changed since graduation?
  • What are the factors associated with child and primary caregiver outcomes since graduation?
  • What are the perceptions of community stakeholders (graduated beneficiaries, community leaders, CHVs and LIPs regarding changes in the wellbeing of OVC and their households since graduation?
