EnCompass, with direct funding from USAID, has contracted Social Impact to conduct the Final Program Evaluation of OTI/Mozambique’s Tuko Pamoja (TP) program. TP has two objectives: (1) help vulnerable youth resist violent extremism (VE) influence more effectively and (2) increase positive engagement between local communities and the government. TP expects to achieve objective #1 by increasing the capacity of youth leaders to promote VE resilience among peers, and by reducing youth feelings of economic marginalization. TP expects to achieve objective #2 by increasing dialogue and information sharing between target communities and the local government, and increasing government responsiveness to community priorities. TP works in three zones: Pemba (Pemba, Montepuez), Coastal Cabo Delgado (Palma, Ibo and Metuge) and Nampula (Angoche, IIha de Moçambique, Nacala Porto, Nacala- A- Velha, Memba). Each of these zone have a different strategy with varying degrees of prioritization across programmatic sub-objectives.

In connection with this Final Program Evaluation, SI is seeking proposals from responsible suppliers for the provision of data collection services to conduct 60 in-person key informant interviews and 16 in-person focus group discussions across four communities in Nampula and Pemba.

Fieldwork is expected to be completed over a four-week period. The estimated period of performance for fieldwork is August 23-September 24.
