Chance for Childhood is an award-winning charity working in Africa to support the most vulnerable children, such as street children, disabled children, children affected by conflict and kids behind bars. Our vision is of a world where no child is forgotten!
We work with African visionary community leaders to implement locally-relevant yet far-reaching projects that create lasting change within the justice, education and social protection sectors. This enables us to focus on ‘hard to reach’ children, both in terms of their complex needs (e.g. street children with learning difficulties) and location (e.g. urban violent slums or remote rural areas). Together we make ideas and impact both sustainable and scalable to protect, educate and empower even more of the world’s most disadvantaged children.
The Learning, Educating and Protecting (LEAP) project is a four-year project funded by Comic Relief. The project aims to support the needs of Children with Street Connections (CwSC) by building the capacity of teachers to identify Special Education Needs (SEN) and adapt methodologies to promote classroom interaction and inclusion. The project aims to harness individual learning support to ensure that street connected children are able to learn as much as possible and achieve their academic potential despite their circumstances. The project uses community volunteers known as Learning Support Assistants (LSA) to provide individual learning support to Street connected children with Special Education Needs (SCwSEN).
The final evaluation shall assess the continued programme’s relevance, efficiency and effectiveness and sustainability. The evaluation is to be composed of two interlinked parts: a) assessing project’s performance and achievements vis-à-vis the project’s overall objectives and conduct impact assessment on what changes the project has created on people’s lives and b) generate lessons learnt from the implementation and develop recommendations, particularly through examination of project learning questions.
The evaluation shall draw on quantitative and qualitative (focus group discussions and key informant interviews) methods. Analysis of quantitative indicators shall be based on the project logical framework and monitoring reports as well as primary data to be collected as part of the evaluation activities.
Please refer to the Terms of Reference (ToR) for additional information.
