Hiring consultant/consulting firm for carrying out formative research on the perception and attitude among adolescent boys towards gender equality and sexual and reproductive health and rights among Rohingya refugees and Host Community in Cox’s Bazar

Since extreme violence erupted in the Rakhine State of Myanmar in 25 August 2017, an estimated 702,160 Rohingya men, women and children have crossed the border into Cox’s Bazar, Bangladesh to find safety. Combined with pre-existing numbers of Rohingya population that fled earlier in previous years, the total Rohingya population in Cox’s Bazar amounts to approximately 914,678 as of 24 May 2018.1

Plan International’s initial response focused on providing life-saving and immediate WASH and Protection needs to the most vulnerable arriving in Cox’s Bazaar, focusing in the Balukhahli Mega camp. In that continuation, in October 2018 Plan International Bangladesh has launched a project titled “Champions of Change” with the financial support from UNFPA.  The overall outcome of the project is to reduce vulnerability of adolescent boys to protection risks and negative SRHR outcomes in Rohingya and Host communities in Bangladesh. The present  formative research will explore key issues and topics related to adolescent boys in camp and host communities in Ukiya and Teknaf, and will inform current and future adolescent programming and implementation. To conduct the formative research  a consultant/consulting firm will be engaged on behalf of Plan International Bangladesh as per this Terms of Reference (TOR).
