Terms of Reference (TOR)
Contract period: October to December 2021
- Background and Rationale
VSO Mozambique is implementing a five-year project (2020/2025) supported through funding from Global Affairs Canada (GAC). The EAGLE (Empowering Adolescent Girls to Learn and Earn) Project intends to empower out of school (OOS) adolescent girls and young women to advance their education and economic empowerment. The project will be implemented in six districts across two provinces in central Mozambique.
The baseline study will provide data for the outcome indicators in the Logic Model and Performance Management Framework (PMF) that forms part of the contract with GAC. VSO follows an action-oriented process and a people-centric methodology that allows for both technical rigour and beneficiary/intermediary ownership of the creation of VSO’s programmes and projects. A blended approach of VSO’s internal Measuring Impact for Learning and Empowerment approach and GAC’s requirements is required to ensure a coherent and consistent approach is taken.
