The 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) in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. It is planned that the modules to be developed will be co-designed and co-delivered with Freedom Fund implementing partners in Ethiopia and therefore enhance their capacity for future sustainability. There are two modules which need designing and facilitating building on what partners are already doing:
• Module 0.1: Training-of-Trainers (ToT) Facilitation
• Module 1.1: International Child and Labour Right Standards for CDWs
• Module 2.1: National Laws and Policies Protecting CDWs, including Proclamation 1178
on the prevention and suppression of trafficking in person and its protection of CDWs
Freedom Fund works on issues around both internal and cross-border migration in Ethiopia, with a particular emphasis on CDWs. Their program 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).
The PEMS CDW program involves five implementing partners working with Freedom Fund to carry out five projects in Addis Ababa. Specifically, one area of 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.
Required Skills and Expertise
The consultant or members of the consultancy team in the aggregate must have:
• Strong knowledge (5+ years) of international and/or Ethiopian legal and policy frameworks relevant to the objectives of this consultancy, including experience working with CDWs, refugees, IDPs, trafficking in persons, human smuggling, and/or labour migrants (if a consultancy team, the lead consultant must meet this minimum requirement);
