BACKGROUND.
ADD
through its Child and Vulnerable Adult Safeguarding policy has laid out
its commitments to keep children and adults (including staff, partners
and beneficiaries) safe from any harm and abuse that may be caused due
to their involvement in ADD International interventions.

SHIVYAWATA
is an umbrella organisation of persons with disabilities in Tanzania.
Its mission is to bring together ten national Disabled People’s
Organizations to afford a larger, louder and common voice on issues of
lobbying and advocacy. As one of ADD International Tanzania main partner
and as organisation fighting for the rights of all person with
disabilities in Tanzania, it is important that it has systems and
mechanisms in place to keep its staff, volunteers, members and other
stakeholders safe from harm.

An action plan has been
drawn up and a request for an individual consultant to work with ADD and
SHIVYAWATA to support the development of a Child and Vulnerable Adult
safeguarding policy for our partner SHIVYAWATA together with its
associate policies such as whistleblowing, human resource, risk
management, code of conduct and to support and monitor its roll out and
implementation. We would need a consultant with an understanding of the
safeguarding context in Tanzania and/or an understanding of safeguarding
in the disability sector to carry out this assignment. She/he should be
aware of  further collaborations planned to be sought between
organizations supporting SHIVYAWATA.

THE OBJECTIVE OF THE WORK.
To provide support on the following areas:

  • Work with ADD to co-facilitate the safeguarding capacity needs mapping for SHIVYAWATA
  • Through participatory approach, support the development of SHIVYAWATA Child and Vulnerable Adult safeguarding policy

    better include safeguarding standards, especially PSEA.

  • Support the organisation to design safeguarding training for its Board members, Staff and Volunteers
  • Support
    the organisation to strengthen its complaints handling mechanism, with a
    focus on safeguarding and whistleblowing complaints.
  • Development of risk management  

Read Also:

  • SHIVYAWATA
    requires support to improve their safeguarding policies and practice.
    Safeguarding practice should focus on beneficiaries and their own staff
    members and representatives, many of whom have disabilities.
  • The
    work will primarily be undertaken in Tanzania. The work (travel and
    consultation) will ideally take place between 1st September and 30th
    October 2020.
  • If an extension to the timeframe is required, this should be justified by the consultant in his/her application.

    an excellent understanding of safeguarding concerning minority groups,
    and experience in developing child and vulnerable adult safeguarding
    policy.
  • Have experience in safeguarding capacity building work with other organisations

  • Have an understanding of the safeguarding risks faced by people with disabilities.
