Request for consultancy services to conduct a baseline survey for A Safe Pair of Hands Project
Practical Action, the international development agency working with poor communities to help them choose and use technology to improve their lives for today and generations to come is seeking the services of a consulting entity to undertake a baseline survey for its Safe Pair of Hands project.
Practical Action in partnership with Kisumu Urban Apostolate Programme (KUAP) was recently awarded a 3 year UK Aid Match grant by DFID to implement “A Safe Pair of Hands “project in the informal settlements of Nyalenda A, Nyalenda B and Obunga in Kisumu, City. The project seeks to address malnutrition among children under 5 through access to clean water, handwashing facilities and improved hygiene practices.
The consultancy firm will provide expertise to the program to establish the milestones and targets for the program impacts and outcomes through a baseline survey. The survey will also seek to assess the knowledge, attitude and practices for children under 5 and their carers on key hygiene behaviors.
The consultancy firm will work with Practical Action and Kisumu Urban Apostolate Programme (KUAP) staff to collect data on key project indicators from the project target beneficiaries (children under 5 and their carers), the health facilities located in the intervention areas, SMEs, duty bearers among others. The consultancy firm will also provide recommendations on the best approaches to monitor nutritional outcomes at the facility level linking this with the WASH interventions in the community.
