Evaluation of mobilization and capacity building activities in terms of knowledge, behaviour change and effects on reducing sexual violence against children
ECPAT France is an international organization affiliated to the ECPAT international network aiming to combat the sexual exploitation of children in the world. The NGO has coordinated a 3-year program called “Strengthening the Protection of Children Victims or at Risk of Sexual Exploitation” (referred to hereinafter as “REPERES”) with operations in several African countries.
This call for consultation is part of the final evaluation of the overall program. It targets specifically operations led in Uganda and Kenya. The terms of reference of the Call for proposition have therefore been formulated together with the implementing partners in these 2 countries, namely:
ANPPCAN – The African Network for the Prevention and Protection against Child Abuse and Neglect is a Pan-African network that promotes child rights. ANPPCAN has national chapters in 26 countries and is head-quartered in Nairobi (Kenya), www.anppcan.org
UCRNN : The Uganda Child Rights NGO Network is a coalition of child-focused humanitarian organizations. This coalition represents the ECPAT International network in Uganda – www.ucrnn.net
Undugu Society of Kenya (USK) was created in 1973 to confront the growing problem of street children and young people in Kenya. One of its core programs is the Rescue Rehabilitation and Reintegration program, including one component dedicated to girls in situation of prostitution, www.undugukenya.org
UYDEL is a Ugandan organization founded in 1993, UYDEL combats risky behaviors of youth (drugs and HIV prevention) and worst forms of exploitation including sexual exploitation of children, www.uydel.org.
The global objective of this multi-country program is to realize the right of all children to live free from sexual exploitation in Africa and in the Mediterranean. The specific objective 1 is to reduce the vulnerability of children to sexual exploitation and the specific objective 2 is to improve the responses of local systems of protection to CSEC issues. Outcomes have been formulated at global program level as follows:
• Outcome 1: Children and young people at risk or victims of prostitution have access to protection and reintegration services
• Outcome 2: Children, parents and communities knowledge on positive attitudes and harmful practices in relation to sexual violence are improved
• Outcome 3: The capacity of stakeholders involved in child protection systems are strengthened regarding the issue of CSEC
• Outcome 4: The expertise and advocacy capacity of ECPAT’s network in Africa and in the Mediterranean is strengthened
• Outcome 5: Outcomes are measured and enhanced using an efficient monitoring system
In Kenya and in Uganda, the 4 partners involved in the REPERES Project have implemented activities to contribute to the expected outcomes.
