Strengthening capacity for Civil Society Organizations on Child Rights Governance

Save the Children (SC) is the leading global independent organisation for children.Save the Children believes every child deserves a future. Around the world, we work every day to give children a healthy start in life, the opportunity to learn and protection from harm. When crisis strikes, and children are most vulnerable, we are always among the first to respond and the last to leave. We ensure children’s unique needs are met and their voices are heard. We deliver lasting results for millions of children, including those hardest to reach. 

“Strengthening capacity for Civil Society Organizations on Child Rights Governance” is a 5-year project under Child Rights Governance program, funded by Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency (SIDA) through Save the Children Sweden. The overall objective of the project is a society where Civil Society Organisations (CSOs) have developed their skills and State actors have systematic dialogues with CSOs in order to take actions towards gaps identified in the CRC concluding observations. Through capacity building for CSOs, Save the Children (SC) and partners nurture relationships and provide opportunities for CSOs and State actors to interact regarding implementation of the Convention on the Rights of the Child (CRC) in Vietnam. SC and partners facilitate, mentor and provide platforms for networks at local, provincial and national levels to develop further. These networks of CSOs from various contexts, representing marginalised groups, then become capable of monitoring children´s rights and be recognised as a relevant and credible discussion partner to the government actors.

Within the project’s framework, Save the Children worked closely with CSOs to empower and strengthen their confidence for constructive dialogues with the government. The organization also took the role of coordinating and enhancing existing child right networks at local, provincial and national levels to increasingly become inclusive and better prepared to take actions regarding child rights issues.

In late October 2021, SC will organize an end-line learning workshop with partner organizations to collate and document historical accounts of the most significant outcomes/changes and key learnings, while examining the roles, contributions and benefits of/for partner organizations. The workshop will also support sustainable close out strategies with partners, and directly contribute to the final donor. The process needs to ensure full respect of ethical and safeguarding standards.


The objective of this Terms of Reference is to hire a qualified individual consultant to study the project documents/templates to properly understand the project design, results framework and activities, and join the end-line learning/ reflective workshop meeting as note taker to reflect the discussions of the participants that will be later consolidated into the draft workshop report and 5-year report package.
