Consultant to conduct an evaluation of the Chumchon Harapan project over its nine years of implementation

Kenan Foundation Asia (Kenan) is a leading not-for-profit development organization headquartered in Bangkok, Thailand that conducts a wide range of economic and social development activities in Southeast Asia (see www.kenan-asia.org). Kenan is seeking a short term consultant to conduct an evaluation on the USAID Chumchon Harapan project that is focused on bringing peace to communities in the Deep South of Thailand by building trust through youth-led community projects.

 

Project Overview

Kenan has been working since 2012 in the Deep South, implementing a project that develops youth leadership to implement activities designed to build trust and improve relationships in their communities. Youth-led community activities serve as connectors to bring together members of different religious communities who have a mutual interest in supporting youth development. The process fosters dialogue about shared community development objectives. This constructive, positive engagement leads to increased trust and empathy, which over time creates a foundation on which members of different groups can openly address grievances through civic discourse. Over the nine years of project activities, Kenan has worked in eighteen schools across Pattani, Yala and Narathiwat provinces, in close collaboration with local universities. 

 

Position Overview:

Kenan seeks a consultant to conduct an evaluation of the Chumchon Harapan project over its nine years of implementation. The study is designed to assess whether and in what ways the project has been successful in building youth capacity to serve as a community connector, increasing the involvement of key stakeholders, and engaging women, to contribute to improving relationships within the community, and increasing the participation of people in communities to mitigate conflict. The study will highlight positive success stories from the project, and provide lessons learned on applying a youth-led model to promote social cohesion among communities. The evaluation should identify project outcomes that have not been captured by the project’s monitoring and evaluation plan. The study will also assess whether and how activities are continuing independent of current USAID funding, and provide recommendations for increasing ownership and sustained implementation of the model through relevant local institutions.
