TOR For Health Workers Behaviour Change and Communication Training
 

Organization background

Save the Children is the world's largest independent organization for children, making a difference to children's lives in over 120 countries. 


We deliver immediate and lasting improvements to children's lives worldwide. Save the Children listens to children, involves children and ensures their views are taken into account. 


Save the Children secures and protects children's rights - to food, shelter, healthcare, education and freedom from violence, abuse and exploitation.

Our vision is a world in which every child attains the right to survival, protection, development and participation.
 

Our mission is to inspire breakthroughs in the way the world treats children, and to achieve immediate and lasting change in their lives.

Save the Children has been operational in Kenya for more than 20 years, working on four core thematic areas: right to Health, right to Freedom from Hunger, right to Education and right to Protection. 


The rights-based approach of our interventions is founded on four interlocking pillars: direct programming, political and policy change, popular mobilization and fundraising. We provide support through both longer term development work and humanitarian relief in emergencies

Behaviour Change and Communication Training
 

Save the Children is currently implementing a broader health and Nutrition programme portfolio in response to the needs identified in Wajir and Mandera Counties. 


A whole system approach to health is employed to improve maternal, new born and child health and survival through tackling structural barriers to access to quality health care as well as unequal access to available preventive and curative services. 


The health programme portfolio has been sub-divided into three programme components namely; Health, Nutrition and Water, Sanitation and Hygiene.
 

Behaviour change and communication has been recognized as an important intervention area by Save the children International and Health stake holders. 


However, one of the weaknesses noted is that there is low technical capacity in Behaviour change and communication among  both the save the children and MOH staffs. 


There is therefore a need to develop the capacity of  BCC programme implementers (Save the children and MOH staffs) in order to have a pool of TOTs who can comfortably facilitate the drafted BCC strategy.




The application period is now open and will close on 20th May 2013. 


To apply for open position, please send a short cover letter and CV to Kenya.jobapplications@savethechildren.org  indicating the position applied for in the subject line.

Background
 

The Youth Agenda (YAA) is a premier youth organization that works towards a ‘just, equitable and progressive society in which young people fully enjoy social, economic and political rights and opportunities’. 


This vision is grounded in the belief that it is possible to realize a globally competitive and prosperous nation with a high quality of life in the near future, as envisaged by Kenya’s Vision 2030. One of our core mandates is to facilitate technical and legislative support to youth and those in leadership positions, in parliament, government and devolved units.
 

Through the support of Amkeni Wakenya, the Youth Agenda is implementing the Kagua Initiative Project (youth promoting credible and accountable leadership) that seeks to improve the Kenyan youth engagement in establishing accountable and responsive devolved governments by empowering them to utilize proper and adequate information as they begin to exercise their right to participate in the governance of their counties from the election of their leaders and right through their term in public/ state offices. 


The project will particularly equip the youth with pertinent knowledge to enable them monitor performance of the county governments.
 

Objective and Scope of The Handbook

2. Develop a survey guide to facilitate participation of youth and collection of information through various forums of the Youth Agenda;
 

3. Develop and submit the all-inclusive handbook including the detailed recommendation on appropriate strategies for youth intervention in ensuring successful implementation of accountability plans at the counties.
