Hiring Consultant/Consulting Firm for End line study of the project – Developing A Model of Inclusive Education in Bangladesh (DMIE) project.

Founded over 80 years ago, Plan International is one of the oldest and largest children's development organisations in the world. Plan International is independent, with no religious, political or governmental affiliations, and with a vision of a world in which all children realize their full potential, in societies that respect people's rights and dignity. Plan International works in fifty-two developing countries across Africa, Asia and the South America, and twenty-one countries raise funds to support these efforts. Plan International's stated Global Strategic Goal is to reach as many children as possible, particularly those who are excluded or marginalised, with high-quality programs that deliver long-lasting benefits. Children are at the heart of everything we do.

Plan International has been operating in Bangladesh since 1994, helping children access their rights to health, education, economic security and protection. Currently, under Country Strategy IV Plan International Bangladesh is implementing programmes in six thematic areas: health, education, child protection, WASH, youth engagement and employment, and disaster risk management and climate change. As part of its protection programme Plan International Bangladesh highly emphasises the reduction in the incidences of child and early marriage as addressing the issue of early marriage has important implications for human rights and well-being of young girls. Plan International Bangladesh has been working for a long period to address child and early marriage in the communities.

While targeted approaches demonstrate the possibility of engaging all children in a meaningful learning process, they remain experimental and sporadic unless efficient and equitable implementation models are developed that embed successful approaches within a sustainable public delivery system.  Plan International Bangladesh’s inclusive education project presents such a model, based on the following principles:
