CALL FOR CONSULTANCY

Terms of Reference for the formative studies – the Isaiah Project

1. Background

As part of the Kids Alive Zambia (KAZ) 2021 to 2023 strategy, we plan to establish a well-equipped and technically empowered center called the “Isaiah center” that will provide support to girls who are victims of abuse, particularly sexual abuse. This center will be designed to provide the services needed for children that have endured the unfortunate pain of sexual abuse. This is going to include medical assessment, providing therapy and investigations support in partnership with the Zambia Police as well as providing a safe environment for tele-submission of criminal evidence by the child, away from the intimidating and traumatizing courtroom. State-of-the-art video conferencing facilities will be installed with appropriate working areas for therapists and investigators.

We wish to identify emerging issues through research to inform future policy and program decisions. The consultancy assignment is mainly on research and dissemination support linked to the overall Kids Alive global goal of pursuing justice and rights and mapped particularly to two priority areas in the KAZ strategic plan of 2021. These include work on the Spring of Life Children’s Project (prison babies) and the Street Kids project.

2. Justification

This assignment is necessary in order to identify deeper issues around child sexual abuse. The findings will be evidence for program work and serve as baseline information.

The study will serve money and help achieve greater impact as the implementers will be guided by the key areas that need intervention the most and which areas are more likely to yield to the change we pursue.

3. Purposes and Research questions;

The purpose of this consultancy is to support evidence-based policy influence with the aim to improve access to justice and protection of children in contact with the law through two feasibility studies on child justice with particular bias to child sexual abuse and providing support through therapy to abused children.

The assignment aims at responding to the following questions:

What legal systems and processes exist when reporting sexual abuse cases? What are the barriers and levers to reporting these sexual abuse cases?
Do the Zambia Police and the National Prosecution Authority (NPA) have appropriate skills and facilities to facilitate investigations and prosecution of suspects?
What challenges do children (victims of sexual abuse) go through when submitting their evidence in court?
How do abused children conquer their traumas?
What is the role of the church in Child protection and child injustice in Zambia?
What are the capacity gaps in government line ministries and NGOs in the planning and development of national justice policies?
How adequate or inadequate are laws that aim to protect children in Zambia?
How well implemented are existing child protection laws?
How do we harmonize the disconnect, between statutory laws and customary laws on child sexual abuse?
