USAID/Nepal: Seeking Applications for “Reading for All” Project

Deadline: 25 October 2017

The United States Agency for International Development (USAID) Mission in Nepal is seeking applications for a cooperative agreement to support the “Reading for All: Disability Inclusive Education for Nepali Children” project.

The goal of the Reading for All activity is to improve reading outcomes for children with disabilities (CwDs) in grades 1 – 3 in USAID-supported Early Grade Reading Program (EGRP) districts.

Objectives

The three main objectives of the Reading for All activity are:

  • Improve data quality on CwDs;
  • Enhance institutional and technical capacity at various levels to deliver quality reading instruction and support to CwDs; and
  • Test inclusive instructional models that can be scaled for specific groups of CwDs.

Funding Information

USAID intends to provide USD $3.5 million (M) in total of USAID funding over a three year period.

Eligibility Criteria

  • All qualified potential applicants are eligible to apply. USAID seeks to make awards to a U.S. or non-U.S. non-governmental organization (NGO) or a private, non-profit organization (or a for-profit company willing to forego profits) that has concrete assets for strengthening equitable and quality service delivery within national and local policies and implementation plans.
  • This includes a strong track record in implementation, monitoring & evaluation (M&E), local capacity building with a focus on learning and use of data for decision-making, and credibility in policy engagement processes.
  • Since USAID aims to work with experienced organizations to focus on and build local and community capacity, USAID will not provide separate technical assistance to partners. Any anticipated technical assistance needs (i.e., for M&E, knowledge management, etc.) must be built into activity design.
  • USAID welcomes applications from organizations that have not previously received financial assistance from USAID. Applicants must have established financial management, monitoring and evaluation processes, internal control systems, and policies and procedures that comply with established USG standards, laws, and regulations.

How to Apply

Applications must be submitted at the address given on the website.
