ChildFund Australia is an independent international development organisation working to reduce poverty for children in developing communities. Our mission is to partner to create communities and systems change, which enables vulnerable children and young people, in all their diversity, to assert and realise their rights.

Background

The project “Strengthening Online Safety for Young People in the Pacific 2020-2022: Phase 2” seeks to increase protective environments for children online and offline in the Pacific region with focus on Solomon Islands, by addressing limited professional capacity in child protection and by building holistic online safety projects with young people across the Pacific.

This project is funded by the DFAT Cyber and Critical Technology Cooperation Program. It is a joint project between ChildFund Australia and PLAN International Australia.

Purpose

The purpose of the next phase of Swipe Safe is to evaluate the scalability of the program and training to introduce to other areas of the Solomon Islands or other Pacific country contexts.

Scope of Evaluation

This end-of-project evaluation will cover the whole of the project and its entire implementation period from July 2019 to June 2023. The evaluation must be conducted in accordance with ChildFund Australia’s guidelines and policies of child protection and ethical standards.

The consultant is required to undertake the following:

    • Design an evaluation plan and prepare a schedule for the evaluation by consulting with ChildFund Australia and PLAN International Australia’s Child Protection and MEL Advisers, as well as with partner staff in the Solomon Islands;

 

    • Ensure that the conduct of the evaluation provides opportunities for participation of stakeholders and capture the views and opinions of key stakeholders (children and young people (especially those with a disability), youth facilitators, parents and caregivers, community entities, government representatives, and other target groups);

 

    • Review relevant primary and secondary sources of information associated with project proposal documents, project variations, periodic reports, Living Lab reports, activity result monitoring forms, and other relevant project-related materials;

 

    • Design, lead, and document focus group discussions (FGDs), key informant interviews (KIIs), and change stories with the different stakeholder groups as stated in the project proposal;

 

    • Ensure that all quantitative and qualitative data collected must be classified by location, age, sex, and whether they do or don’t have a disability. Care must be taken to ensure that the analysis of findings consider and reflect the views of marginalised groups;

 

    • Analyse available information and document findings and recommendations;

 

    • Present findings to ChildFund Australia and PLAN International for discussion and feedback. The evaluation should provide evidence including case stories, direct quotes, and high-quality photos in support of the findings arising; and

 

    A final report will be produced in English, along with a summary outlining key findings and recommendations.

The consultancy will be carried out in Honiara, Solomon Islands.

In-depth interviews and focus group discussions with youth facilitators, parents and caregivers and community entities who directly participated in the project will be conducted. Interviews with officials and representatives from the Solomon Islands Police Force and the Ministry of Communication and Aviation will also be required.
