CALL FOR EXPRESSION OF INTEREST (EOI)

Mercy Corps is an international, non-governmental humanitarian relief and development agency that exists to alleviate suffering, poverty and oppression by helping to build secure, productive and just communities. Mercy Corps works amid disasters, conflicts, chronic poverty and instability to support people, communities and organizations that can bring about positive change. 

Mercy Corps has been implementing Supporting the Education of Marginalised Girls in Kailali (STEM) program in Kailali district of Far western region since June 2013 funded by DFID under Girls Education Challenge and fund managed by PwC. The project aims to improve the life chances of marginalised girls in Kailali district by creating a supportive environment towards girls education. This is done through a series of activities including community awareness campaigns, formation of after school girls’ clubs, providing business and vocational trainings and access to finance to out of school girls, and building capacity of schools, teachers, parents and the communities. STEM II will work with the same 30 treatment and 13 control schools from STEM I, where evaluation will focus on an approach that enables the project to measure and see changes that can be rigorously attributed to the project intervention. For this, the project will use a quasi-experimental design whereby the change happening in the control group will provide the counterfactual scenario to the interventions in STEM II.
