Europe Foundation announces Request for Proposals: Training on Sanitation and Hygiene Standards for Youth

Deadline: 28 February 2019

Europe Foundation (EPF) is seeking proposals from qualified organizations or individuals to develop a handbook on Sanitation and Hygiene in Schools and conduct a series of trainings on Hygiene and Sanitation for young people involved in its Youth Integration Program.

The overall goal of the assignment is to contribute to raising awareness and empowering youth in the targeted YB communities to successfully advocate for improved system of sanitation and hygiene at primary and secondary schools throughout Georgia. The consultant is to develop a training program for the targeted young people (120 in total), so that they enhance their sanitation and hygiene literacy (e.g. the right to sanitation, sanitation standards at schools) as well as the importance of proper hygiene practices. Prior to the training, the selected consultant is also expected to develop a handbook, which will have information on WASH standards, as well as detailed instructions on how to raise awareness of young people on sanitation and hygiene issues.

The handbook should target young people aged 16-21. EPF expects these tasks to be completed mid-April 2019. The Consultant should suggest the most effective and efficient method of delivering such training to its 120 beneficiaries. At any point, EPF can bring together up to 120 young people for not more than a two-day-long activity, as long as the Consultant suggests a methodology, which will ensure that the capacity building takes place in groups of not more than 25 trainees and envisions common activities for all trainees present at the venue. The Foundation is open to any other suggestion from the Consultant, as long as trainings are completed on time and the suggested workplan is not associated with excessive spending.
