TERMS OF REFERENCE
(TOR) to recruit Field Research Enumerators for Gikuriro Beneficiary Assessment
The purpose of these Terms of Reference (TOR) is to recruit Field Research Enumerator’s who will carry out data collection for CRS-Rwada Gikuriro Program Annual Beneficiary assessment. This document will provide the background and objectives of the assessment and the responsibilities of enumerators.
Gikuriro is implemented through a consortium of two International Agencies; Catholic Relief Services - USCCB (CRS) who is the prime and SNV, the Netherlands Development Organization a sub recipient. INWA works through decentralized Government of Rwanda (GoR) systems and structures and local civil society organizations (LCSOs) in the eight targeted districts. CRS and SNV pool significant technical expertise and capacity strengthening experience in the four key areas to catalyze results of existing actors: nutrition (CRS), hygiene and sanitation (SNV), capacity strengthening (CRS and SNV) and BCC (CRS and SNV).
Gikuriro embodies CRS and SNV’s programmatic and operational approach to improve the nutritional status of women of reproductive age and children under five, especially in the first 1,000 days of life. Nutrition and WASH are inextricably interlinked; poor sanitation and hygiene practices increase the risk of diseases that can contribute to malnutrition. Children with diarrhea eat less and are less able to absorb the nutrients from their food.
The program therefore, intends to conduct targeted assessment on its beneficiaries. This will be conducted using a light questionnaire and indicator load with Statistical representative samples at district level.
This assessment will only be targeted on 5 districts. These districts include: Nyabihu, Kicukiro, Nyarugenge, Kayonza and Ngoma. The purpose of this study is to conduct a targeted beneficiary assessment with light questionnaire to support internal program needs.
