Job Vacancies

We are looking for an External Evaluator

We are currently recruiting for an external evaluator to undertake a mid-term evaluation of its innovative project “Promoting Inclusive Education for Disabled Children in Uganda Using a ‘Child-to-Child’ Approach”.

We are currently working with our local Ugandan partner Ugandan Society for Disabled Children (USDC) on a Comic Relief funded project to increase the inclusion of children with disabilities in primary schools in Uganda. Using an innovative Child-to-Child approach, the project works in 27 government primary schools across three districts in northern Uganda (Lira, Adjumani and Nebbi), engaging children, parents, schools and local governments to breakdown barriers to inclusive education. The mid-term evaluation for AbleChildAfrica’s project will assess our progress made in fulfilling the project’s outcomes as stipulated in the project’s logframe/MEL framework.

The successful consultant will have experience in using child-centred and child participatory MEL approaches and of evaluating complex bilateral or multilateral donor funded projects with results-based monitoring.

Work on the evaluation will commence in March 2019, with primary data collection taking place soon after. Analysis and report production will follow, with the final report expected in April.
