Terms of Reference (ToR) for conducting

Midline Evaluation and WASH KAP of  Promoting Resilience of Poor and Vulnerable Communities in Lumbini Province


Islamic Relief Worldwide (IRW) is an independent humanitarian and development organization that has been serving humanity for more than 35 years. With an active presence in over 40 countries across the globe, IR strives to make the world a better and fairer place for the three billion people still living in poverty. Since 1984, IRW has helped millions of the world’s poorest and most vulnerable people. Inspired by the Islamic faith and guided by Islamic values, IRW believes that people with wealth have a duty to those less fortunate – regardless of race, political affiliation, gender, or belief. IRW is affiliated with Social Welfare Council as an International Non-Government Organization.

IRW projects provide poor people with access to vital services, protect communities, women, and children from/during disasters and deliver life-saving emergency aid. It provides lasting routes out of poverty and empowers vulnerable people to transform their lives and their communities. IRW supported local partners immediately after the Gorkha Earthquake 2015 to address the Emergency and recovery needs of the most affected population.

Islamic Relief Nepal was established as a legal organization by signing its first GA with Social Welfare Council on 13th October 2017 and its Project agreement on 13 December 2018. IR Nepal is presently working through 5 local implementing partners in Bara, Rautahat, Sarlahi, Mahottari, Kapilvastu, and Rupandehi districts.

Islamic Relief (IR) Nepal has recently started implementing the graduation model Livelihood, Resilience, and WASH sector-specific intervention in Rupandehi and Kapilvastu district through a local implementing partner Lumbini Integrated Development Organization (LIDO). This intervention- “Promoting Resilience of Poor and Vulnerable Communities in Lumbini Province” was launched in December 2022 and targeted two rural municipalities (Suddhodhan Rural Municipality and Mayadevi Rural Municipality) of Kapilvastu district and two municipalities (Lumbini Sanskritik Municipality and Sammarimai Rural Municipality) of Rupandehi district.

The project aims for improved well-being, food security, WASH, and resilience among poor and vulnerable households in four Municipalities of Rupandehi and Kapilvastu districts (Lumbini Province) affected by climate change. This will be achieved through secure access to irrigation water and productive infrastructure, coupled with the introduction of new resilient agricultural practices, livestock rearing, and alternative livelihoods.  Ultra-poor and vulnerable families will be able to enhance their income and food security toward better resilience to climate change through a graduation approach. Further, the project will establish an enabling environment for climate-adaptive actions and investment, including strengthening the evidence base for adaptation, mainstreaming climate risk into local Development Planning, and improving access to timely and usable weather forecast information and its dissemination to the community members to enable mitigation and preventive measures.
