1. Context of the Call for proposition**

1. Presentation of PACKING partners**

ECPAT France is a French-based organization affiliated to the ECPAT international network aiming to combat the sexual exploitation of children in the world. It coordinates the PACKING project.

“Les Amis du bus des femmes” is a French community-based NGO working with and for sex workers. One of their priorities is the fight against trafficking in human beings for the purpose of sexual exploitation.

Girl’s Power Initiative (GPI) is a Nigerian non-governmental organization founded to address the challenges facing girls in the Nigerian society and equip them with information, skill and opportunities for action to grow into self-actualized young women.

IFRA Nigeria is a research institute in social sciences and humanities. The Institute operates from the University of Ibadan (Institute of African Studies). Over the past few years, the research orientation of IFRA has revolved around problems of democratic transition, urban violence, restructuring of educational systems in Africa, transborder studies, religious networks, urban management and the politics of violence.

The CNRS (“National Center for Scientific Research”), is a French public organization under the responsibility of the French Ministry of Education and Research.

2. Overview of the PACKING program**

Background: a growing number of girls and young women from Central Edo have been identified in situation of sexual exploitation in Paris. The project aims at increasing information, knowledge and awareness of stakeholders (girls, parents, local authorities, anti-trafficking stakeholders) so as to prevent and better protect girls from Central Edo.

Output 1**: Migrants or potential migrants, especially children and women from Nigeria, understand the risks linked to migration and the difference with trafficking, know where to find help and are supported in case of voluntary repatriation

® Awareness raising activities through peer education for in-school children in Edo Central on the risks linked to migration and the situation of victims of trafficking (71 schools / 5 local government areas/ 44 500 children informed)

® Creation and diffusion of a Facebook campaign regarding migration and trafficking targeting girls living in Edo state, especially in rural areas (93,000 young girls reached)

® Assistance to children and women who have returned to Nigeria in collaboration with IOM (10 young women)

Output 2: The civil society and the local authorities in Nigeria have a better understanding of the situation of migrants and the risks of trafficking, especially for Nigerian children and women coming from remote areas, and facilitate the prevention of the risks and their protection in case of abuse

® Awareness of community members through film screening and radio programs in Edo Central

Senatorial district in Nigeria (5 local government areas, 1,000 community stakeholders +

260,000 persons from the general population)

® Support to projects to reduce the vulnerability of children to human being trafficking in

Nigeria in order to prevent their recruitment (50 young girls)

Output 3: The stakeholders contributing to the trafficking of human beings of Nigerian children and women, their roles and their interactions are better identified in order to support and ensure the implementation of the objectives of the 3 Ps of the Palermo Protocol (Prevention, Protection and Prosecution) and the Geneva Convention (in contributing to a better evaluation of the risks of persecution in case of return)

® Research on the Ayelala Temples, the women’s groups and the “cultists” gangs in Edo State and their link to criminal networks involved in trafficking of human beings (1 research, 3 articles)

® Dissemination conference on the results of the research with participants from the local authorities and the civil society in Europe and Nigeria (1 conference, 50 participants)

3. The Call for consultation**

We are looking for a consultant to conduct the final evaluation of the program. The consultant is expected to suggest recommendations for the next programming phases.

4. Evaluation objectives**

The evaluation should be able to offer an overall impression of the project. The objectives of the final evaluation are to:

• Assess the overall performance of the project and determine whether the intervention has been an effective and sound response in preventing and eradicating human rights violations against migrants and asylum seekers, especially children and women coming from Nigeria, and at risk or victims of trafficking in human being

• Evaluate the design and implementation of the program to inform children and young women from Nigeria on the risks linked to migration and the difference with trafficking, know where to find help (awareness raising component).

• Evaluate the design and implementation of the program regarding the empowerment of persons at risk of (re)-trafficking (empowerment component)

• Evaluate the design and implementation of the program towards the civil society and the local authorities in Nigeria to better understand the situation of migrants and the risks of trafficking, especially for Nigerian children and women coming from remote areas, and facilitate the prevention of the risks and their protection in case of abuse (capacity building component)

• Examine the effectiveness of the project in supporting a better evaluation of the risks of persecution in case of return and thereby the implementation of the objectives of the 3

Ps of the Palermo Protocol (Prevention, Protection and Prosecution) and the Geneva

Convention (research component)

• Identify key results, lessons learnt, shortcoming and good practices that could be applied to future projects both in Europe and Nigeria.

• Identify activities that could be developed in future projects in order to use the research results in the Nigerian context to protect the victims and prosecute traffickers

Examples of evaluative questions :

· Have young girls and boys from communities receive information on trafficking? Through which channel? Do they trust this information? Has it change something in their perception of migration? What would they do if approached to go to Europe?

· Do community members feel they have a role in protecting girls from sexual exploitation? Do they feel empowered enough to play a role? Do they see major barriers to reporting traffickers?

· Do the professionals who have read the research acknowledge an increased knowledge on the role of criminal groups and other parallel groups based in Europe and/or Nigeria in trafficking in human beings? Do they find it useful in their respective functions for challenging the impunity of these special groups involved in the exploitation of children and women? Do they find it useful to better protect girls and women potentially victims of trafficking for sexual exploitation?

5. Methodology**

The methodology will be proposed by the consultant. In all cases, the consultant is expected to:

  • Desk research: the consultant is expected to review the resources produced during the project (the IFRA articles, the CNRS research, the training content, the campaign material), and other documents (activity reports, interim reports, project documents)

  • Field visits / interviews: the consultant is expected to interview project/research officers and beneficiaries / stakeholders both in Nigeria and in France / Europe. The first phase is expected to be in Nigeria in November / December 2018. It will require field investigations in Central Edo. The second stage is expected in March 2019 in Paris in the period of the final conference of the project.

  • Project end meetings: organization of a half-day meeting on the 9th of March 2019 with all

partners to finalize discussions.

  • Reportings: A draft preliminary report of 20 pages on empowerment and capacity building activities implemented in Nigeria is expected by mid-December. It will be completed after completion of activities early March in France. A draft report should then be presented to ECPAT France and its partners in order to get their remarks and comments by the 31st of March. After taking into account exchanges with partners, the consultant will deliver the final report that should be clearly structured and submitted in a soft copy. The report should be in English between 30 and 40 pages, including the methodology and list of persons.

The methodology and supporting tools proposed will need to be approved by ECPAT France.
