Detailed Job description / requirements:

Terms of Reference (ToR) for developing Video Documentary on SCoN – Distance Teaching Learning (DTL) Program During COVID-19

Project Locations: Mahottari, Dhanusha, Siraha, Saptari, and Sunsari 

Organisation and Project Overview 

Street Child is an international charity based in the United Kingdom that aims to create avenues for out of-school children to access education through an integrated approach that strengthens the capacity of teachers, schools and communities to sustain their investment in the education for their children. 

Street Child sees a world where all children are safe, in school and learning. We specialise in supporting children and communities in low-resource environments and emergencies: recognising that the complex, compounded challenges that affect them require innovative, integrated interventions. Our interventions are informed by robust, rigorous evidence and results-oriented, optimised to create maximum impact for children at minimum cost. Since 2008, we have assisted over 250 000 children across 14 fragile, conflict and crisis affected counties across South Asia and Sub-Saharan Africa. Street Child has a strong, sustained commitment to localisation and works in partnership with 80+ local level actors and organisations, underscored by close consultation and collaboration with local communities.

Street Child started its operation in Nepal after the 2015 earthquakes that left more than 1 million children out of school and destroyed over 50,000 classrooms. Having delivered a series of response and recovery programs Street Child of Nepal is assisting local partners to re-establish education for some of the country’s most marginalized communities.

Street Child is implementing a three-year long Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Offices funded education, protection and livelihood project in Mahottari, Dhanusha and Saptari. In its second year of implementation, Street Child and partners realized the need to pivot our efforts to address the chronic vulnerabilities exacerbated by the pandemic-the lockdowns and other form of closures/mobility restrictions thereof. Street Child along with its partners in support of FCDO is delivering a RAPID RESPONSE PROGRAM to address these gaps of food insecurity, child-protection, protection in general and other cross-cutting issues. This response program will last for a period of six months and target to reach over 10,000 families at risk in all districts of Province-2. The program will operate in three different strands-Prevention and Preparedness, Psychosocial support and Protection Services, and Provision of Relief.”
