SI’s mission is to improve the effectiveness of international development programs in improving people’s lives. We provide a full range of management consulting, technical assistance, and training services to strengthen international development programs, organizations, and policies. We provide services globally in the areas of monitoring and evaluation, strategic planning, project and program design, organizational capacity building, and gender and social analysis. SI services cross-cut all development sectors including democracy and governance, health, education, the environment, and economic growth. SI’s clients include US government agencies such as USAID, the Millennium Challenge Corporation, the US Department of State, bilateral donors, multilateral development banks, foundations, and non-profits. In Ethiopia, SI implements the Ethiopia Performance Monitoring and Evaluation Service (EPMES) Activity of USAID. The EPMES Activity provides monitoring and evaluation (M&E) services to the USAID/ Ethiopia Mission, which include external evaluation, performance monitoring technical support and improving capacity for learning and adapting.

I. Background

The USAID/Challenge TB Ethiopia (CTB) Project is a 5-year global mechanism active since October 2014 and ending in September 2019. In Ethiopia, it is being implemented by KNCV TB Foundation as the in-country lead, along with Management Sciences for Health (MSH) and World Health Organization (WHO). Additional partners who are in the global coalition but not active in-country in Ethiopia are the American Thoracic Society, FHI 360, and Interactive Research and Development (IRD). Challenge TB Ethiopia supports a comprehensive package of tuberculosis (TB) interventions.

Challenge TB Ethiopia collaborates with the National TB Program (NTP), major national institutions (EPHI, AHRI, PFSA and FMHACA), Ethiopian universities and other local institutions and helps the regional health bureaus (RHBs), zonal health departments (ZHDs), and woreda (district) primary health care units to take ownership of TB, TB/HIV, and multidrug-resistant TB (MDR-TB) program management. Through this assistance, the RHBs, ZHDs, and woreda (district) primary health care units have been fully engaged to ensure improved and sustainable program management capacity. Challenge TB Ethiopia focuses on increasing case notification and decentralization of TB services to communities through Health Extension Workers (HEW) and expanding access to additional health facilities (HF) in rural and urban areas. The project is also helping to strengthen Ethiopia’s health system by supporting the national laboratory network, program management teams of regional, zonal and woreda health offices and health facility staff capacity, woreda planning and improved drug supply management and TB infection prevention standards.

II. Evaluation Purpose

The purpose of this final performance evaluation is to independently assess the overall performance of the Challenge TB Project—in terms of achievements and challenges faced during implementation—and provide insight into effectiveness and relevance of the intervention strategies that have been implemented. Further, the evaluation should generate evidence and document lessons learned aimed at improving future TB program strategies to inform the design and implementation of similar projects in line with the USAID/Ethiopia Country Development Cooperation Strategy.

III. Evaluation Tasks and Timeline

The Evaluation Team Leader will lead a team of two (2) local consultants. During the evaluation design phase, the team will develop a detailed evaluation inception report which will include qualitative and quantitative data collection methods and analysis approaches, including a desk review to evaluate the performance of the Challenge TB Project. The evaluation team will be responsible for conducting primary and secondary data collection, performing data analysis, preparing PowerPoint presentations, presenting evaluation findings to USAID and other stakeholders, and preparing draft and final evaluation reports. The evaluation is expected to start in third week of January 2019.

IV. Position Description

Ethiopia: Evaluation Consultancy Job Vacancy in Ethiopia

Organization: Habitat for Humanity
Country: Ethiopia
Closing date: 29 Oct 2018

Evaluation Consultancy Terms of Reference
Project Title: Emergency Response to Drought in Ethiopia 2016/2017

1. INTRODUCTION

Habitat for Humanity Ethiopia (HFHE), affiliated to Habitat for Humanity International (HFHI) is a non-profit Christian organization aiming at improving housing conditions in Ethiopia. During 2016/2017 HFHE implemented an emergency response project addressing immediate needs related to access to safe drinking water in Silte Region, Ethiopia, heavily affected by drought. The project was possible due to the financial support provided by The JTI Foundation (JTIF).
The post implementation evaluation is commissioned by JTIF and will help HFHI to improve disaster response internal processes and mechanisms by learning from this experience in Ethiopia.

2. BACKGROUND

Habitat for Humanity International (HFHI) is an international non-profit organization dedicated to eliminating substandard housing and homelessness worldwide and to making adequate, affordable shelter a matter of conscience and action. Since 1976, Habitat for Humanity has helped 6.8 million people find strength, stability and independence through safe, decent and affordable shelter. HFHI works through a broad network of national Habitat organizations and other strategic partners, such as corporations, financial service providers, individuals, non-governmental organizations, foundations, local governments, as well as private and third sector actors.

The project has been implemented in Silte Zone of the Southern Nations Nationalities and People’s Region (SNNPR), one of the nine regional states of Ethiopia. Silte Zone is one of the areas severely hit by drought caused by El NiƱo occurred in 2016/2017. Due to failure of rain and draining of water sources, more than 70,000 people face shortage of water in the Zone.

HFHE implemented in the past smaller disaster response projects, so the emergency project was building on some existing experience. HFHI provided additional technical support building mostly on existing similar projects in other countries. Nevertheless, HFH Ethiopia had at that time extensive experience in WASH sector; therefore, some activities are reflecting their existing capacity and expertise (i.e. community hygiene trainings and promotion, etc.).

The main technical solution- water backpacks used by recipients to fetch water instead of traditional jerry cans, was chosen by HFHI based on its previous responses and existing supply chain and international connections. Therefore, logistics, international transport, procurement and coordination with our teams on the ground were key elements in this response. Given this complexity, timing, custom clearance and supplier issues, the project was implemented with several months delay. These are some of the aspects, which the proposed evaluation would focus on. In addition, the external evaluator will seek to reflect the effectiveness of related internal communication flows, decision-making process and protocols. Finally, the evaluation will provide suggestions and options for improvement and learning and identify aspects that contributed to project success – if any.

3. PROJECT OBJECTIVES, ACTIVITIES AND OUTCOMES

The main objective of the project was to respond to the WASH needs of 7,500 families in 12 communities (Kebeles) of Alicho and Sankura woredas (districts) who have been affected by severe shortage of water caused by the worst drought in 30 years. The project intended to ensure availability of clean and safe drinking water and improve community awareness on hygiene and sanitation through community-based hygiene promotion campaigns. It was expected to improve the health conditions of children, women and the community in the project area through safe use of water. This goal was supposed to be achieved by direct distribution of 7,500 water backpacks to the most vulnerable and isolated families, so they can collect and carry home the safe drinking water from the main distribution points or new boreholes.

Due to severity of the problem, some households, especially those who do not have livestock have started to migrate to urban areas in search of water and food. From a quick assessment carried by Habitat and its implementing partners, it was identified that around 70,000 people are affected by serious water shortage in Siltie Zone’s.

72, 534 people living in 6 rural communities (Kebeles) of 2 districts in the Siltie Zone (SNNPR) were targeted as both direct and indirect beneficiaries. Out of these, 37,500 people were expected to directly benefit from the project while the remaining 35,034 indirectly. The direct beneficiaries were intended to benefit from the provision of water, hygiene and sanitation, awareness creation while the indirect beneficiaries were expected to benefit from awareness creation, hygiene and sanitation trainings.

Project Activities:

A1. The water backpacks were ordered, procured and shipped to Ethiopia. HFH International directly coordinated all the preparatory and related logistics through the EMEA regional office. HFHE ensured duty free or custom tax and temporary warehousing.

A2. HFH Ethiopia organized the local partners and ensured transportation and distribution to the field. Coordinated distribution of 7,500 Water Backpacks was organized for the most vulnerable and isolated families, especially the women headed families

A3. All backpack end-users were provided with locally available and accepted water purification solutions and treatment. Chlorine tablets and other chemical solutions were procured in coordination with UNICEF which is the country WASH cluster leading agency monitoring also the centralized tablets procurement system.

A4. Hygiene and sanitation trainings were conducted simultaneously with the distribution of the backpacks. The local teams conducted awareness and education for drought affected communities on the proper use of backpacks, treatment and storage of water. Additionally, community members received information on appropriate sanitation and hygiene practices.

A5. Monitoring and post distribution follow up with families was done. The local teams did family random visits and checks. Additional trainings or WASH related information support were to be provided, when needed.

The activities were implemented in collaboration with the community and the District and Zonal Water, Energy and Mineral offices. Habitat provided continuous technical support throughout the project implementation period. In addition, the WASH cluster provided additional support when necessary but also incorporated the current intervention in the broader country level response for coordination. HFH Ethiopia was also responsible for supplying project inputs and logistical support. Besides the coordination role, the organization provided all staff necessary for the implementation of the project.

· Total project budget: $196,324

· JTIF contribution: CHF152, 317.51

· Habitat contribution: $35,000

4. EVALUATION PURPOSE

The purpose of the evaluation is to enable HFHI understand what went well or wrong and to allow for an independent structured evaluation of the effectiveness and efficiency of intervention. The purpose of this evaluation is to help HFHI to understand what worked, what did not work and what could be improved to inform future programming in disaster response in terms of internal process.
