Baan Dek is a Thai-registered Foundation with the mission of providing access to education, health, and safety services for all vulnerable children. Baan Dek Foundation (BDF) supports over 1800 children each year across over 60 construction site camp, slum or low income communities around Bangkok and Chiang Mai in Thailand.
The Bangkok branch of Baan Dek is relatively young, only 1.5 years old, whereas Baan Dek has been operating for 18 years in Chiang Mai. BDF’s focus in Bangkok is with the construction sector, working in partnership with construction companies and real estate developers to support sustainable, systemic improvements in construction site camps, in terms of social impact, for children and their construction worker parents. The framework for this work is developed as per the research project BDF did in partnership with UNICEF published in 2017, Building Futures in Thailand, and is called the Chiang Mai Framework for Action (CMFA). It provides 12 key focus areas for companies to improve their social impact.
BDF are looking for a Social Return on Investment (SROI) Consultant to help Baan Dek to demonstrate the forecasted impact of the framework in construction site camps, and to develop a monitoring system and evaluation plan to measure this impact.
The successful Consultant would support BDF’s Impact & Innovation team, and the Advocacy and Engagement team, to work with the team to conduct an SROI forecast for the use of the Chiang Mai Framework for Action (CMFA) in construction site camps in order to improve quality of life for workers and their children living in the camps.
This will include interviews with all interested and affected stakeholders according to the expected impact of the framework and participatory valuation of this impact. Affected stakeholders include the public community surrounding the camps.
This consultancy will start on 1 December 2020 and will end at the end 29 Febuary 2021.
Payments will be made in 2 tranches, 30% on completion of point 1 above, and 70% at the end of the contract, based on satisfactory completion of point 2, 3, 4, 5 and 6 above, and any further ad hoc tasks.
