    Organization: Terre des hommes Foundation Child Relief
    Country: Paraguay
    Closing date: 18 Jun 2017

    1.INTRODUCCION

    En el Perú, así como en la mayoría de países de la región, el incremento de las infracciones a la ley penal y la creciente percepción de inseguridad, han llevado a muchos gobiernos a establecer políticas de carácter punitivo. En una línea contraria a esta tendencia, desde el 2005, La Fundación Terre des hommes – Lausanne (Suiza)implementó un proyecto de justicia juvenil restaurativa que ha validado prácticas innovadoras con impactos positivos en la política pública peruana[1] y en otros países vecinos[2], demostrando que el enfoque restaurativo favorece una intervención eficiente y efectiva con los adolescentes en conflicto con la ley penal.

    Teniendo en cuenta esta experiencia desarrollada en el Perú, autoridades de instituciones de los sistemas de justicia de otros países de América Latina han venido solicitando el apoyo técnico de Tdh para fortalecer la justicia juvenil en dichos países. Por tal motivo, la Delegación de Perú ha venido desarrollando un conjunto de acciones y estrategias responder a dichas demandas a través de una Delegación Subregional y un Programa Regional de Justicia Juvenil Restaurativa.

    El Programa Regional de Justicia Juvenil Restaurativa se ha diseñado teniendo como marco orientador los procesos de cambio institucional que se vienen impulsando tanto a nivel estratégico como programático. A nivel estratégico, la Delegación de Perú, considerando la experiencia del proyecto de Justicia Juvenil Restaurativa desarrollada desde el 2005 y la visión al 2030 de Tdh, amplía su intervención a Ecuador, Paraguay y Bolivia desde una perspectiva de trabajo regional, con la intención de generar sinergias y lograr un mayor impacto en los sistemas de justicia juvenil de dichos países. Y, en cuanto a nivel programático, esta nueva intervención de carácter regional se inscribe dentro de los cambios institucionales de Tdh de focalizar un intervención en ámbitos y programas[3], y de gestionar iniciativas involucrando múltiples países.

    El Programa Regional de Justicia Juvenil Restaurativa a implementarse en Perú, Ecuador, Paraguay y Bolivia, busca enfrentar los problemas neurálgicos que afectan a los sistemas de justicia juvenil de dichos países como la vulneración de los derechos de los adolescentes en conflicto con la ley penal, la excesiva judicialización de casos generando un enorme carga judicial en dichos sistemas y la limitada aplicación de las medidas alternativas a la privación de la libertad con la consecuente sobrepoblación de los centros de privación de libertad, entre otros. Todos estos problemas condicionados por un contexto social caracterizado por el incremento del sentimiento de inseguridad frente al delito que incentiva y alienta el uso de medidas punitivas por parte de las autoridades y los propios operadores de justicia.

    Para enfrentar estos problemas el Programa Regional se propone que los adolescentes en conflicto con la ley penal de dichos países tengan garantizados sus derechos, dispongan de mayores alternativas al proceso judicial y a la privación de la libertad, así como mejores condiciones para responsabilizarse, reparar el daño y reintegrarse a la comunidad. Para el logro de estos objetivos, dicho Programa ha previsto el desarrollo de un conjunto de estratégicas orientadas a realizar una importante incidencia en las políticas y normas, la formación y asistencia técnica a operadores de justicia, y la promoción y difusión de las buenas prácticas en justicia juvenil con un enfoque restaurativo a nivel nacional y regional. Así mismo, dichas estrategias cuentan con un conjunto de mecanismos técnicos de apoyo como un Observatorio Regional de Justicia Juvenil Restaurativa, un Banco de Recursos Técnicos, un Centro de Formación y Especialización, un Sistema de Asistencia Técnica y un Centro de Innovación, todos ellos integrados en una Plataforma Virtual Regional.

    Organization: UN Children's Fund
    Country: Kazakhstan
    Closing date: 05 Jul 2017

    If you are a committed, creative professional and are passionate about making a lasting difference for children, the world's leading children's rights organization would like to hear from you.

    For 70 years, UNICEF has been working on the ground in 190 countries and territories to promote children's survival, protection and development. The world's largest provider of vaccines for developing countries, UNICEF supports child health and nutrition, good water and sanitation, quality basic education for all boys and girls, and the protection of children from violence, exploitation, and AIDS. UNICEF is funded entirely by the voluntary contributions of individuals, businesses, foundations and governments.

    Background

    UNICEF’s in Kazakhstan aims to advance the country’s capacity to promote children’s rights domestically, regionally and globally, by leveraging national and international capacity, knowledge, and experience in priority areas for children. Domestically, the UNICEF-Government of Kazakhstan country programme for 2016-2020 focuses on demonstrating innovative child-focused local policy initiatives and demonstration models which can be brought to scale nationally and which can provide best-practice examples for knowledge exchange with other countries.

    Donor income is a significant contributor to results for children in Kazakhstan, supporting a large share of activities taking place at oblast levels. In recent years traditional donors have gradually reduced their presence in Kazakhstan, or have mainly focused away from supporting large scale reforms to small-grant funding of NGOs, while relationship with emerging donors have not yet reached scale. Meanwhile, the private sector in Kazakhstan is a potential source of income and innovative partnerships to leverage results for children. Increasing numbers of international subsidiaries operating in Kazakhstan point to a wider private sector base and potential for alliance building around corporate social responsibility aimed at leveraging social changes, and with potential for generating OR income.

    To maximize flexible and predictable funding for children in Kazakhstan, UNICEF CO in 2016-2017 undertook an initial strategic analysis of the donor market in the country and of UNICEF’s potential to leverage innovative partnerships in pursuance of the goals set out in the Country Program Action Plan. This analysis translated into a UNICEF resource mobilization strategy and a UNICEF Corporate Social Responsibility Strategy (CSR), which includes a detailed overview of CSR schemes for consideration and potential implementation. The resource mobilization strategy provides direction on what can be realistically achieved in terms of mobilizing resources for joint action, given UNICEF’s projected funding needs post-2017. The CSR strategy aims to help the private sector in Kazakhstan advance their understanding of responsible business conduct (RBC) principles to benefit both businesses and the society, with a focus on the most disadvantaged families with children. Altogether, both documents aim to promote children’s rights and sustain more resources for children’s wellbeing in Kazakhstan.

    The resource mobilization strategy set the course for UNICEF’s further fundraising action that shall built on the following essential practical steps: identify, engage, negotiate, manage and report, and communicate results. Table 1 summarizes these critical five steps to guide the Organization’s resource mobilization initiatives.

    UNICEF has developed an overall vision for the implementation of each of the resource mobilization steps outlined in the Table 1. The vision focuses on identifying and targeted engaging of potential donors, while acknowledging the importance of powerful communication of UNICEF results throughout resource mobilization actions. The two focus areas – donor engagement and negotiation – along with the need for donor-specific consistent communication require a dedicated focal point who would possess a comprehensive understanding of donor relations, fundraising and proposal writing.

    Purpose of the Assignment:

    UNICEF aims to immediately upshift its activities in fundraising, with a differentiated focus on traditional and emerging donors, and on pursuing innovative fund-raising initiatives for flexible, non-earmarked resources, including through the private sector. UNICEF is therefore looking to recruit a talented individual to quickly support UNICEF’s outreach to donors on fundraising.

    Scope:

    The contractor will directly contribute to raising ‘Other Resources’ with the overall objective of securing up to US$2 million per year. Specifically, in line with the Country Programme Funds Mobilization Strategy, the contractor will focus initially on (1) the rapid analysis of donors’ potential to contribute Other Resources to the country programme, (2) the short-term prioritization and recruitment of high value potential donors, including follow-up on prospective funding opportunities and supporting UNICEF to sustain UNICEF-donor agreements and conclude funding agreements (3) the elaboration and dissemination of multiple, high-quality funding proposals, and (4) the preparation and dissemination of donor-focused visibility and advocacy material promoting investment in the UNICEF-supported country programme for Kazakhstan. The contractor will later elaborate, test and revise viable strategies and actions for effective fundraising both internationally and in Kazakhstan. The contractor will collaborate closely with relevant staff at country and regional levels to understand the details of UNICEF’s support to the country programme and to elaborate funding proposals. To the same end, the contractor shall consult relevant publications (research, evaluation, public information and analysis) including from UNICEF and external sources, and where needed conduct interviews and/or focus group discussions (with relevant UNICEF staff, donors, and other partners). Travel within Kazakhstan should be expected.

    Objectives:

  • Conduct a rapid market analysis and assessment of fundraising opportunities for Kazakhstan among traditional, emerging and private sector donors, enabling prioritization of short-term fundraising approaches and related actions.

The successful models piloted in the regions are then presented at the national level and potentially beyond the borders. These include such pilots, as prevention of suicide among adolescents, universal progressive patronage nursing system, building child friendly justice systems, prevention of violence in schools and residential institutions, and creation of child wellbeing monitoring system.

    Theory of Change: Theories of change have been used in designing, managing, assessing, and scaling up interventions. It is an ongoing process of reflection to explore change and how it happens – and what that means for the part organizations play in a particular context, sector and/or group of people. The five pilots implemented at the subnational level have developed theories of change/concept notes at the initial stage of the programs that need to be strengthened, updated or redesigned based on a new evidence and experience.

UNICEF is funded entirely by the voluntary contributions of individuals, businesses, foundations and governments.

    Background information

    In Kazakhstan, mortality from accidents, injuries and poisoning ranks third in the mortality rate (11.3%) of the population causing about 16 thousand deaths per year. According to the Committee on Legal Statistics and Special Accounts of the General Prosecutor's Office of the Republic of Kazakhstan, in nine months of 2016, 18,691 people were injured in road accidents, including 3,192 children; out of them 171 children died.

    In 2016, UNICEF included prevention of child injuries in the Work Plan of the Government of the Republic of Kazakhstan and UNICEF for 2016-2020, and initiated establishment of an interagency working group with participation of the representatives of the Ministry of Health, Emergency Committee and Administrative Police Committee under the Ministry of the Interior, Ministry of Education and Science, WHO and UNICEF. The participants of the working group recommended strengthening the implementation of the Interagency Action Plan aimed to decrease the mortality rate from child injuries in Kazakhstan for 2016-2017.

    Moreover, it was recommended: 1) to analyze the situation in this area and make adequate changes in legislation on ensuring a safe environment for children, 2) to strengthen capacity of teachers, health and social workers, and police on prevention of child injury, 3) to raise awareness of parents and the public about safety standards and preventive measures. The working group has revealed one critical bottleneck hampering adequate monitoring the effectiveness of preventive interventions, which is a lack of available database with timely data on child injuries (types and outcomes, including mortality and disability rates) disaggregated by gender and age (0-1, 1-4, 5-9,10-14,15-18 years of age). Data on child mortality and injuries from road accidents and without age and gender breakdown are available at the webpage of the Administrative Police Committee under the Ministry of Interior, where regulations on road safety, statistics and communication resources are placed.
