Purpose of this Consultancy  

Sonke seeks to recruit the services of a consultant to conduct an end-term evaluation of the project: Linking policy and implementation for gender equality in Malawi, Namibia, and Zimbabwe. The evaluation aims to assess the following: 

  • To assess the project on its quality, efficiency, effectiveness, and contribution towards the MEA Strategic Plan.
  • To measure to what extent the project outcomes have been achieved, and their impact or relevance to the sub-regional, regional, and international developmental priorities.
  • To assess the capacities of country secretariates to coordinate, implement, enhance, and scale up their gender transformative approaches to GBV prevention and gender-equal parenting, including greater accountability to women’s rights principles.  

We anticipate that the key audiences and end users of the report include 

  • Members and partners of the partnership. The findings will be used by country implementing partners to identify successful strategies and lessons learned. Insights from this evaluation will provide perceptions into which approaches need to be started, continued, revised, or stopped for which target groups. 
  • Project participants and stakeholders in each country. Engaging directly with this audience ensures downward accountability, learning, inspiration, and motivation. 
  • International knowledge platforms. This will contribute to global learning and innovation concerning best practices, scalable interventions, and lessons learned. 
  • Furthermore, the evaluation report will be shared with the Austrian Development Agency (the primary donor of the project).


Expected deliverables

  • Inception report including detailed methodology in line with the relevant checklist in the ADA Guidelines for Programme and Project Evaluations.
  • Draft findings report in line with the relevant checklist in the ADA Guidelines for Programme and Project Evaluations.
  • Validation workshop.
  • Final report (printable and online version) including a completed Results Assessment Form in line with ADA Guidelines for Programme and Project Evaluations.
  • Stand-alone communication products, such as a slide deck or an attractive digital application with main findings and recommendations.
  • The language of the report is English, and it must be clear and concise language.

Requirements for evaluators

  • Experience of at least 10 years in conducting external evaluations, with mixed-methods evaluation skills and flexibility in using non-traditional and innovative evaluation methods.
  • Experience with gender-responsive and gender transformative approaches, participatory approaches, and stakeholder engagement.
  • Experience in collecting and analyzing quantitative and qualitative data as well as data visualization. 
  • The evaluators must not have been involved in the design or implementation of the project being evaluated.
  • In-depth knowledge of the human rights-based approach.
  • A strong commitment to delivering timely and high-quality results, i.e., credible evaluation and a report that can be used.
  • A strong, diverse team with a gender balance, leadership, and management track record, as well as interpersonal and communication skills to help ensure that the evaluation is understood and used. 

  • Language proficiency: fluency in English.
  • A team of evaluators with a presence in the countries of implementation (Malawi, Namibia, Zimbabwe).
  • Access to a South African bank account is an added advantage.
