Subject/purpose of assignment: Capacity Building mission: Training in cash-for-work and multipurpose cash transfer programming & supporting kick-off of project implementation
Dates of assignment: 17 December – 17 January (15 working days, 10 days field mission)
1) Background information
In response to the earthquake and tsunami in Central Sulawesi on 28 October 2018, CACH started a relief project in mid-October 2018, consisting initially of in-kind distribution and hygiene promotion as well as psychosocial support activities. CACH together with its local partner organization Pusaka foundation plans to implement a CTP project (15 December – 15 March 2018), consisting of 1-month cash-for-work (cfw) for debris removal as well as unconditional, multi-purpose cash grants (MPG) for most vulnerable people. The project is aligned with the cash guidelines of the cash cluster, which determine monthly salary rates as well as cash transfer modalities (e-cash). Pusaka foundation, who will lead project implementation, has implemented a CTP project before, but is not experienced in cfw & e-cah modalities.
The project implementation will start on 15 December with preparatory activities such as market assessment, beneficiary selection, beneficiary verification with the Social Welfare ministry and signing MoUs with the local government and financial institutes. The actual activity implementation will start in mid-January after the assignment of the consultant.
