Summary

Freedom Fund seeks a consultant or consultancy team to prepare and conduct capacity development training for partners including government duty-bearers and other key stakeholders working with Child Domestic Workers (CDWs). A Training of Trainers (TOT) will already have been conducted for implementing partners to build facilitation skills and understanding of adult learning principles in training design and delivery. The consultant is expected to design and facilitate a module on the topic of Case Management and Protection for CDWs. The module should be developed, co-designed and co-delivered with Freedom Fund implementing partners in Ethiopia and should prepare participants to facilitate the training to be delivered for government duty bearers and other stakeholders working with CDWs. This process aims at enhancing partners’ capacity for future sustainability. The rights and participation of child domestic workers is highly important and should be integrated throughout the module. The module has been divided into three (3) sessions:

• Module 3.1: Introduction to child protection
• Module 3.2: Introduction to child development and the impact of trauma
• Module 3.3: Working within the National Child Protection Case Management Guidelines and the National Referral Mechanism to protect CDWs.

Freedom Fund works on issues around both internal and cross-border migration in Ethiopia, with a particular emphasis on CDWs. Their programming on CDWs seeks, as its primary objective, to reduce the prevalence of domestic servitude amongst girls in Ethiopia and improve migration outcomes for Ethiopian women and girls through the US Department of State Program to End Modern Slavery (PEMS). PEMS involves five implementing partners working with Freedom Fund to carry out five projects in Addis Ababa. Specifically, the program focuses on the working conditions of CDWs in Ethiopia who are particularly at risk of domestic servitude by holding employers and traffickers accountable through strengthening actions of law enforcement, labour, and social affairs officials. Freedom Fund aims to strengthen local buy-in and enhance effectiveness by working through local frontline organisations.

Reporting and Working Language

The consultant will report in English to the Freedom Fund Program Manager in the UK and Freedom Fund Programme Officer in Ethiopia, who will be the focal point for this assignment. All deliverables will be developed and submitted in English to Freedom Fund, unless the consultant is specifically requested in writing to provide particular documents in Amharic.

The consultant or members of the consultancy team in the aggregate must have:

• Strong knowledge (5+ years) of the international and/or Ethiopian context relevant to the objectives of this consultancy, including experience working with CDWs, vulnerable children, trafficking in persons, human smuggling, and/or labour migrants (if a consultancy team, the lead consultant must meet this minimum requirement);
