Terms of Reference (TORs) for Hum Kar Saktay Hain (HKSH) Training
In 2015, an INGO launched a women’s leadership initiative Hum Kar Saktay Hain (HKSH), inspired by the Norwegian Labor Party’s “Women Can Do It” training, as the foundation for a Women’s Network/Advisory Group. HKSH brought together women from different religious, ethnic and socioeconomic backgrounds, and trained them to tackle male domination techniques and promoted collaboration not competition. Building on this initiative, the organization has developed a project Collaboration for Change (C4C): transforming lives and minds for equal citizenship 2016-18 in collaboration with two Pakistani partners.
Scope of the work
The contracting INGO is looking for the services of an organization or consultant(s) to collaborate in providing HKSH training to the women selected under its C4C project. There will be 25 participants each for two 5-days non-residential workshops in late 2017 The HKSH aims to help Pakistani women to overcome their challenges which they face as a result of discouragement from their family members for participating in public life. The HKSH leadership course would be followed by a mentoring program for women in the twin cities of Rawalpindi and Islamabad. The HKSH training will include topics such as personal safety, public speaking, stress management, posture, voice training etc. A session on legal literacy will also be required to help women to claim their rights, along with a session on improving intra/interfaith relations to clarify how various religions support women’s rights to help overcome social taboos and convince family members to support their endeavours for their proffesional growth and development.
The organization/institute/consultant will design a pre-training assessment questionnaire to measure knowledge of target audience before the training. This will help the trainers to prepare training modules accordingly and to identify who needs more attention and help, and which users could potentially be helping fellow users. The organization or consultant(s) will also decide on the session plans (i.e., which sections of the training manual will be used for a workshop) according to the Audience Analysis and based on feedback from the participants.
In close collaboration with the contracting INGO, the selected organization or consultant(s) will organize and facilitate the training on the finalized version of training manual. The organization or consultant(s) will organize, moderate and conduct 5-day training workshops for 25 women each in Islamabad. The organization or consultant(s) will deliver the training workshops in the local language (Urdu). The training period must be divided in a way that participants exercise their learning experience at community level with handholding support from INGO’s local partners.
At the end of the training, the participants would be re-assessed on certain pre-designed evaluation questionnaire. This will help to identify the successful aspects of the training and areas for improvement. This will also help with better performance in the future trainings.
The selected organization or consultant(s) will develop an interactive training module and material aimed at enhancing the capacity of the participants to effectively enhance their influencing and leadership skills and become better influencers and champions in their respective communities. The training module shall be interactive and easy to understand with guidance notes and comprised of practical exercises to fully understand influencing and leadership approaches.
The selected organization or consultant(s) is required to design training contents for two 5-day workshops based on the training manual to lead several sessions. For reference, it should be noted that the following sessions were part of the previous round of HKSH training workshops:
After signing the Memorandum of Understanding (MoU), the selected organization or consultant(s) will closely work with the contracting INGO to ensure timely and effective delivery of the training.
