Request for Proposal to conduct the Endline Evaluation of the project titled “Addressing Impacts of COVID on Efforts to Combat Transnational Trafficking in Persons (TIP) in two border districts of Nepal”

Detail Terms of Reference (ToR)

1. Background: Terre des hommes Foundation (Tdh) 

Terre des hommes Foundation (Tdh) is a leading Swiss non-government organization that is active in the protection of vulnerable children. Tdh was founded in 1960 and helps to build a better future for disadvantaged children and their communities, with innovative approaches as well as practical and sustainable solutions. Tdh has been in Nepal since 1985 working with all stakeholders to bring change to the lives of the most vulnerable children. Our regular child protection and health-focused projects as well as child protection in emergencies have and will continue to benefit thousands of children, their relatives, and communities across the country. 

Tdh Nepal Country Office in partnership with Shakti Samuha is implementing the project “Addressing Impacts of COVID on Efforts to Combat Transnational Trafficking in Persons (TIP) in two border districts of Nepal” in Illam and Jhapa districts for a period of 12 months starting from the 1st of July 2021. The project is funded by the US Department of State (JTIP).

2. Introduction to the project

The project aimed to assist victims of transnational trafficking in persons (TIP) through direct assistance such as income generation, psychosocial counselling for families and individuals, legal assistance, health assistance, and so on, as well as to strengthen the existing anti-trafficking local government mechanism to address the victim identification process, referral pathway, and psychosocial counselling support.

In alignment with TIP Office priorities, the project aims to ensure that the most vulnerable have decreased risk of being trafficked and access to preventative and protective services. The project accomplished these priorities by addressing the impacts of COVID on TIP and supporting the government to combat transnational TIP in the two selected districts.

To attain the goal, the project has two mutually reinforcing objectives: first one aims to articulate the concept of prevention of TIP by increasing and building evidence and capacity of local government and duty bearers, and the second objective articulating the concept of protection by increasing the capacity of actors to provide services to victims of transnational TIP in context of COVID through the victim-cantered, survivor-informed, and trauma-informed approaches.  According to the government ranking, the implementation areas are still among the top ten migration districts, where economic hardship, sociopolitical issues, and trafficking issues have been exacerbated by the COVID 19 pandemic.

Theory of Change: If governments, CSOs and other key duty bearers have increased capacity to identify and refer persons at-risk of trafficking and to prevent transnational TIP, and if they also have increased capacity to provide victim-centered, survivor-informed and trauma-informed services to protect victims of transnational TIP, assuming:

  • Sufficient data is available, and research is completed,
  • Province- and district-level actors commit to the project objectives,
  • Government actors adapt the legislative frameworks and operating protocols,
  • Trained persons stay in the districts of intervention, and 
  • There are no major social, political, economic, or security changes,

then persons at-risk of and victims of transnational TIP in the border districts of Jhapa and Illam will have decreased risk of being trafficked or re-trafficked and have increased access to responsive protection services because evidenced-based interventions that build local capacity lead to more efficient, effective, and sustainable prevention and protection responses to counter and combat transnational TIP in complex contexts.
