Development of a Five-year Strategic Plan

FAID Pakistan



The Foundation for Ageing and Inclusive Development- FAID is a national not-for-profit humanitarian and development organization licensed under section 42 of the Companies Act 2017 of SECP. FAID works with vulnerable groups especially older women and men and those with disabilities with a vision of an inclusive society where ageing is dignified, healthy and secure for all.

We work with our partners to ensure that people and stakeholders in Pakistan including the government, INGOs, UN, NGOs, media, and academia understand how much older men and women and persons with disability contribute to society and that they must enjoy their right to healthcare, social services, and economic and physical security.



The purpose of engaging a consultant is for development of FAID’s 5-year (2024-2029) strategic plan through an inclusive and participatory process. The consultant will work with the senior management team and board of directors of FAID.

FAID’s vision, mission, and core values will guide the strategic plan.

Objectives and scope of the consultancy

The specific objective includes 

  1. Define the scope of the Strategic Plan Development (SPD) process by meeting with FAID’s Board and management.
  2. Conduct consultative meetings with the Board of Directors, management, and key stakeholders, to synthesise key learnings and identify strategic opportunities in the current environment with a focus on understanding “Where do we want to be? How will we get there?”
  3. Develop an effective internal evaluation mechanism to continually assess FAID’s progress in achieving its strategic goals
  4. Draft the Strategic Plan and present it to the Board of Directors and key stakeholders for validation and approval after necessary revisions.
  5. Based on the approved Strategic plan, develop a 2-year operational plan including a financial/business model.


 2.      Methodology

The consultant will provide a detailed methodology for developing the strategy; however, the following outline will provide an idea of what is expected in the methodology.: 

  • A contextual analysis of secondary and primary data sources (Govt. of Pakistan’s Development and Humanitarian strategies and plans, Major donor’s strategies for Pakistan, and other national, regional and international funding opportunities etc) and other partnership opportunities.
  • Stakeholder mapping and primary research with the first layer of stakeholders (including but not limited to BOD, staff, beneficiaries, civil society, and public experts) through qualitative methods and consultative workshops (where required) to triangulate with findings from secondary data and identify themes and potential strategies.
  • Compilation of theory of change with clear pathways of change.

 N.B. The consulting agency/consultant can also suggest methodologies different from those mentioned above.


 3.      Deliverables 

  • An inception report outlining the approach/methodology and execution program/timetable. This report shall be submitted for review and approval before the commencement of the work.
  • Presentation of the key findings from desk review and consultation meetings to the BOD/management.
  • Draft strategy shared with the BOD for review and feedback
  • Final 5-year strategy after incorporating the feedback from BOD/management.
  • Two-year operational plan based on the approved strategic plan.
