Consultant Hiring for Formative research on life skills and positive parenting knowledge in Rohingya and Host Communities – Consultancy, Cox’s Bazar

Background and introduction

Plan International is an independent development and humanitarian organisation that advances children’s rights and equality for girls. Operating in Bangladesh since 1994 and globally over 70 countries, Plan International is the world's largest organisation with a specific focus on advancing equality for girls. Plan International has been operating in Bangladesh since 1994 to ensure the rights of children to education, health, safe water and sanitation, protection, youth economic empowerment and protection from climate change, environmental degradation and natural or man-made disasters. We work with children, their families, communities, wider society and governments to reach out to more than a million children and their communities in Bangladesh. Plan international Bangladesh is currently implementing its fourth country strategic plan (CSP-IV) developed for five years covering the period of 2016 to 2020 towards a longer term vision of a Bangladesh where “Children and Youth (irrespective of ethnicity, location, gender, religion, disabilities or sexual orientation) grow up in a safe, protected, enabling environment where their rights are realized and their voices heard and valued.” Achieving gender equality is a core objective of Plan’s work as an organization dedicated to child rights.

As part of it, Plan International Bangladesh is implementing “Promoting protection and combating negative gender norms amongst adolescents from Rohingya refugee and host communities in Cox’s Bazar, Bangladesh” in four project locations in Ukiya. This is an eight-month long project in Cox’s Bazar focusing on building life skills and resilience, creating positive gender norms amongst adolescent girls and boys aged 10-19 years and positive parenting of adolescents in line with the Protection Objective of Joint Response Plan for Rohingya Humanitarian Crisis, March to December 2018.
