Evaluation for a KNH-BMZ project KHATALA – Dare to Care: Ensuring rights of children with intellectual disabilities through Social Networks and Advocacy in Gqeberha in the Eastern Cape

Background information

Kindernothilfe e.V. (KNH) is a Non-Governmental Organisation founded in 1959 (see www.kindernothilfe.org). KNH works with local non-governmental organisations and their networks in 36 countries in Africa, Asia, Latin America and Eastern Europe to realize and protect children’s rights. KNH reaches out to some 1.9 million children with programmes and projects which aim to help vulnerable and marginalized children to access sustainable opportunities to grow and to develop to their full potential. In Germany, Austria, Switzerland and Luxemburg KNH engages in awareness raising, education and advocacy relating to development policies and particularly to the implementation of the Child Rights Convention. KNH is represented in the project countries by In-Country Coordinators (ICC), which accompany and monitor partner organisations and their projects. KNH's strategic direction and engagement is based upon Christian values. KNH's vision is a world, where all children enjoy their rights regardless of their social, economic, political and religious background. 

Indlela Mental Health (IMH), previously Port Elizabeth Mental Health, was established in 1939 and registered as a Non-governmental Organisation (NGO) under the new democratic South African government. Its vision is for all people with disabilities to be valued and accepted and for them to enjoy and embrace mental wellbeing. IMH works to create a dynamic movement that promotes mental wellbeing and resilience in the Eastern Cape through training, skills development and community-driven support networks that unlock local resources and inspire innovation amongst learning partners. IMH further advocates for inclusion and rights protection of people with intellectual and psycho-social disabilities.


Funding Development Services (FDS) is a local non-profit organisation that supports non-profit organisations in Southern Africa that assist projects working primarily with women and children.


Purpose of the project evaluation

The key purposes of the evaluation are:

• To determine whether the factors favouring long-term community-based sustainability are in place 

• To provide recommendations regarding what is needed to strengthen such community-based sustainability

Other purposes are:

• To assess the outcomes of the project to date on the direct target groups, determining the final values of indicators, and whether there are any unintended outcomes- 

• To assess organisational efficiency/effectiveness and impact thereof on project implementation

• To provide recommendations to strengthen efficiency/effectiveness


The consultant is expected to make use of participatory and consultative methods in the design, including, but not limited to the use of focus group discussions for different target groups, key informant interviews and meeting / implementation observation. The consultant is expected to engage existing beneficiaries, previous beneficiaries, community stakeholders and partners, and existing staff and the Wellness Warriors to gather relevant information to inform their findings and recommendations. 

The consultant will accordingly submit a proposal elaborating on a feasible, cost-effective methodology and design that includes an evaluation matrix showing the correlation between data collected and each of the above stipulated evaluation questions and other methods of processing and analysis. The evaluation will target both quantitative and qualitative investigation. The consultant will also provide an evaluation implementation plan specifying the time frame of each phase identified. Time should be made available for consultation / dialogue with the IMH Director and KNH Coordinator at key points in the evaluation process.
