BACKGROUND

The Integrated Child Health and Social Service Award (ICHSSA), Lagos State is a 5-year PEPFAR/USAID funded project in Lagos State. The project has a purpose to provide services to orphans and vulnerable children while strengthening government systems to adequately respond and coordinate these implementation activities. A major objective of this project is to provide care and support services for vulnerable children and their households, especially those infected and affected by HIV.

The major tool for sustaining this project is resource mobilization which we expect would come from both public and private organizations; as such, capacity of the government staff both at local government and state will be built on resource mobilization, tracking government investments in OVC within the local government and State. They will also be mentored on analyzing and reporting on the impact or otherwise of these investments within their domain. We envisage that most of the funds for implementation of activities will be derived from the government through the Ministry of Youth and Social Development, which is the coordinating Ministry for OVC activities in Lagos State.

As part of resource mobilization we are required to engage in the government budgeting process; thus, there is the need to track budget and conduct analysis of expenditure around child welfare and social services for vulnerable children and their families.

SCOPE OF WORK

Therefore Project HOPE is seeking to engage a Consultant to:

Duties and Responsibilities

· Prepare a training module per findings of the above capacity and training needs assessment, including materials, handouts, pre- and post- training evaluation tools (2 days)

· Walk ICHSSA staff through implementation of the training module (1 day)

· Prepare draft final report on the delivered tasks, including all materials, presentations, evaluation tools and follow-up recommendations for participants (2 days).
