British Council Indonesia

British Council in Indonesia is currently seeking individual consultants to conduct a baseline survey for its International Inspirations Programmes. Please see below terms of reference of the position, and how to apply ---------------------------------------------------------- Terms of Reference Baseline Survey International Inspirations Introduction This Terms of Reference is prepared for the baseline survey for International Inspiration programme. The baseline will map out behaviours components that will be addressed through sport activities and training intervention for social workers, children and young people at street children drop-in centers in Jakarta. Background International Inspiration (II) programme is an official legacy programme for London 2012, which objective is to inspire 12 million children in 20 countries to choose and participate in sports and play to enhance their quality of life. Indonesia is one of the countries implementing the programme. One of the main objectives of II programme is to increase children’s (especially marginalised children) access to high quality PE, sport and play that can enhance their health, wellness, and quality of life. Through the programme, sport is used as a media to increase children’s and young people’s development, protection and participations. The programme will last up to July 2013 in Indonesia. International Inspiration in Indonesia Starting this year II in Indonesia is working together with Ministry of Social Affairs (MoSA) to reach street children in Jakarta area. One of MoSA’s programme objectives is to have children to be off the street and furthermore get the children back to school. Social workers who are working closely with street children at drop-in centres often uses sport as a tool to engage children in activities available in drop-in centres. However, although social workers use sport in many occasions as one of activity alternatives at street children drop-in centres, they do not have the sufficient background and knowledge for physical education (PE) or sport and play. This term of reference is prepared as a reference to map out the behaviours that can be addressed through sport and play activities. For the reference in this research, street children are defined using UNICEF’s concept of boys and girls aged under 18 for whom ‘the street’ (including unoccupied dwellings and wasteland) has become home and/or their source of livelihood, and who are inadequately protected or supervised (Black, 1993). The concept includes street-living children who live and sleep in public spaces as well as street-working children who work on the streets during the day, returning to their family homes to sleep (Szanton Blanc, 1994; Gomes da Costa, 1997), but leaves out street families, seasonal street workers and others. Definitions continue to evolve to try to capture the fluidity and differences in children’s circumstances, including terms such as ‘street-connected children’ and ‘children in street situations’ (see Rizzini, 1996; Thomas de Benitez, 1999). Baseline objectives: The objectives of the baseline are: 1. To map out top 50 most dominant behaviours exist in drop-in centers that regularly brings street children voluntarily back to drop-in centers 2.
