Closing date: Midnight (Nepal time) Friday 3rd November 2017

Young people share a restless determination to address the problems that affect them the most. That’s where we come in. At Restless Development, we’re proud to be the banner carrier for youth-led development, demonstrating from the grassroots to the global policy levels that young people can and must play a lead role in development. As a result, Restless Development is repeatedly cited as a model of best practice in youth-led development by the World Bank, the UK Department for International Development (DFID), UNICEF, UNAIDS and others.

In Nepal, Restless Development has been working in the youth and adolescents development sector for more than 25 years. It is the recipient of several international and national awards. It works in formal partnership with Ministry of Youth and Sports and in over 35 districts across the country.

Restless Development Nepal is implementing a project which aims to reduce the incidence of Chhaupadi and other forms of discrimination during menstruation in seven districts (Doti, Dadeldhura, Kailali, Kanchanpur, Accham, Dailekh and Kalikot) of the Far- and Mid-Western Regions of Nepal since January 1, 2015. This consultancy is to develop the final evaluation of the project. This consultancy will provide an assessment of the project implementation and identify and document best practices and lessons learnt. The evaluation will be based on the five evaluation criteria of the OECD (Relevance, Impact, Effectiveness, Efficiency and Sustainability) with special attention to learning and making proposals which may support and improve future actions in the subject and regions.

This consultancy is expected to be developed by a national or international consultant(s) (with support of a translator/interpreter if necessary). The senior evaluator will be responsible for undertaking the evaluation from start to finish and for managing the evaluation team (if any) under the supervision of Restless Development MEL Unit, for the data collection and analysis, as well as report drafting and finalization in English.(Please refer to the Terms of Reference attached below for more details)
