Consultancy Services to CREAW GBV Project in Kibera
 

24th May, 2012
 

Re: Terms of Reference for Consultancy Services under CREAW’S GBV Project in Kibera
 

About CREAW
 

Centre for Rights Education and Awareness (CREAW) is a non-governmental, nonpartisan organization. 



Our Vision is a just and free society in which women and men exercise equal and full rights and opportunities, and our Mission is to transform the Kenyan society through the promotion and expansion of women’s human rights, rule of law and social justice
 

Background Information
 

Since year 2003, CREAW has been implementing community awareness and empowerment programs in Kibera aimed at increasing access to justice for survivors of Gender based Violence (GBV) while also involving the police, provincial administration and community members in a participatory approach aimed at reducing instances of GBV. 



CREAW has also been working in partnership with various institutions to respond to legal and psychosocial needs for survivors of violence. This initiative has been additionally supported through CREAW’s outreach program which has an office based in Kibera since March 2009.
 

The first phase of the project lasted for a period of three years between years 2009 to 2011 December focused mainly on providing legal aid to survivors of GBV and creation of awareness to various community groups on GBV.
 

With the support of the United States Agency for International Development (USAID / Kenya), CREAW is now implementing the second phase of the project that will run for an initial period of three years starting from July 2011 to June 2014 and is tailored based on best practices and lessons learnt from phase one’s implementation process. 



In addition to the initial objectives of creating awareness on GBV and offering legal aid to GBV survivors, the project scope will be expanded to accommodate other components such as economic empowerment for GBV survivors, male involvement in GBV prevention, establishment of a functional referral network for GBV cases through case managers and a one stop shop platform, support to safe spaces for GBV survivors, establishment of a community resource center, continous trainings for government officers and improved program coordination and networking in partnership with other partners working on GBV.
 

This phase of implementation will be guided by two main objectives namely:-

  • To increase access to justice and integrated support to the survivors of violence in Kibera
  • To increase awareness on Gender Based Violence (GBV) among community members, male champions, school children, school teachers and government officers



For the GBV project to be implemented effectively and for there to be a big positive impact after implementation, factual data on the current GBV situation within Kibera is required to guide the process of implementation. 



There is need to get facts about the GBV prevalence rate, the level of coordination of GBV services, the current state of case management, operations of safe house management, the judicial processes of GBV cases in court and all other components in the Project Monitoring Plan.
 

Rationale
 

Gender Based Violence is a criminal offence in Kenya and there are laws and other instruments to govern it. 



However despite these efforts, numerous cases are still being reported throughout the country, with a high prevalence in Kibera.


Survivors of GBV in Kibera face serious challenges particularly with access to justice and other GBV support services which include medical, psychosocial, shelters and economic empowerment opportunities. 



The provincial administration and the police are mostly unresponsive to GBV cases and lack of public confidence in these systems contributes to low rates of reporting. 



Although the Sexual Offences Act 2006 has been in operation for over 5 years, one of the biggest challenges with implementing its provisions has been that the duty bearers (the police, the chiefs and the prosecutors) have limited knowledge /information on the provisions of the Act. 



In addition, most of the cases reported to the chiefs or the police are usually settled through traditional justice systems which do not take cognizance of the criminal nature of GBV cases. 



Similarly lack of information on preventative and responsive measures to GBV puts women and girls including physically challenged girls at a disadvantage and at higher risks of suffering violence.
 

Kibera also lacks an effective mechanism to link survivors of GBV to immediate medical facilities that offer GBV support services such as post exposure prophylaxis (PEP). 



CREAW’s experience with the survivors that we attend to has been that over 85% are unable to access services at Nairobi Women’s hospital or Kenyatta National Hospital because they lack bus fare to reach these facilities. 



Furthermore, the absence of a case manager within CREAW’s program hampers our ability to monitor and ensure that the survivors actually report cases to the police and seek medical treatment at facilities which may be closer to Kibera.


It is against this backdrop that CREAW seeks to undertake a baseline survey to collect facts on the GBV situation in Kibera that will then direct project implementation.
 

Terms of Reference
 

Description of the Task
 

The research shall be guided by 4 key objectives namely: -

  1. To identify various GBV services available for GBV survivors (Medical, psychosocial, legal, safe houses, economic empowerment, protection etc)
  2. To identify gaps in delivery of the GBV services (Identified in objective 1) using information from the key service providers and community members
  3. To assess the accessibility of GBV services and community’s understanding of critical services that a survivor must access after violation
  4. To assess the level of acceptance of GBV among community members in Kibera

Further:-

  1. The baseline survey shall also be guided by the project monitoring plan document that has already been developed
  2. The entire baseline survey shall be done in a period of 20 (Twenty) working days 20 days
  3. The researcher will prepare a report which will include; the background, abstract, research methodology used, actual survey report, summary of findings recommendations and annexes
  4. The researcher will also take CREAW, representatives from the Kibera community and other partners including USAID through the draft report after the survey for validation of facts
  5. To finalize report by inputting additional recommendations, amendments and action plans drawn up at the validation meeting

Expected output from the Baseline Survey
 

At the end of the baseline survey, CREAW expects collected facts on the GBV situation in Kibera that will then direct project implementation for the next 2 years.


As per the activity objectives, the survey shall focus on 4 areas namely, availability of GBV services in Kibera, gaps in delivery of the services, accessibility of the services, community understands of the critical GBV management services and an assessment of community’s acceptance of GBV
 

The agreed on work plan and/or time frame including the budget for the baseline survey is as follows:
 

Time frame
