Oxfam employs more than six thousand people in 90 countries who share a commitment to work together to end poverty and suffering. It is committed to ensure diversity and gender equality within the organization and welcomes applications from women, person with disability and under-represented groups. Oxfam does not discriminate against applicants or employees based on their HIV/AIDS status. The organization has been working in Bangladesh since the War of Independence and has established a permanent country office in 1972. Since then it has responded to all major emergencies in the country. Oxfam’s current program focuses on Economic Justice & Resilience, Gender and Women’s Leadership and Humanitarian Capacity Building and Response.

A simple, inescapable truth underlines everything we do at Oxfam. There’s enough wealth in this world to go around. It’s not unfortunate that people live in poverty. It’s unjustifiable. It’s not their problem. It’s ours too. And with the right support, we can stop poverty and suffering in their tracks. More than 8,000 people already commit their time and talents to our humanitarian and long-term development projects. Now we’re looking for yours.

Oxfam in Bangladesh is looking for a qualified Consultant or a Consultancy Firm to conduct “supervising consultant of project work at bolon duck hatchery in gaibandha”. We are inviting for proposal from interested consultancy firm/ individual to undertake this assignment.


“Enterprise Development Programme (EDP) - Bangladesh” is a unique impact investment programme led by Oxfam in Bangladesh under the Economic Justice and Resilience  Pillar. A number of small & growing business projects have been running since 2017. EDP provides different technical support to develop the capacity of the selected enterprises in terms of quality, quantity and sustainability of the enterprise through strengthening its finance, administration, inventory management, business operation and facilitates linkages to create an access to finance. In the year 2017 and 2018, OXFAM BD has invested in Bolon Duck Hatchery.

Bolon Duck Hatchery is a rural based private sector business house (duck hatchery), founded in 2007 and is currently engaged in producing and selling ducklings to the duck farmers in Gaibandha and its adjacent districts in Bangladesh. Bolon Duck Hatchery is known as a sustainable enterprise that creates positive social and environmental impact resulting in economic and employment opportunities for marginalized farmers, women and youth.   


The overall purpose of supervision and monitoring the project is to bring out the best of Oxfam investment into both access to finance facilitation and capacity development at partner enterprise. As the partner enterprise is located quite distant place, it is not practical to monitor the project work constantly to keep everything on track. A supervisory consultant will visit the enterprise 10-12 days per month and generate monthly report on assigned job description and thus keep a strong check on enterprise activities. This will also enable Oxfam to understand the activity trend and future plan with enterprise to explore ideas with focus on beneficiaries.
