Background to the work/tasks             

Handicap International Federation, under the operating name Humanity & Inclusion (registered trademark) is an independent and impartial international aid organization working in situations of poverty and exclusion, conflict and disaster. Working alongside persons with disabilities and other vulnerable groups, our action and testimony are focused on responding to their essential needs, improving their living conditions and promoting respect for their dignity and their fundamental rights.

“Growing Together” is a 4-year regional project implemented by HI and partners in Thailand, Bangladesh and Pakistan in order to support communities to raising socially and emotionally healthy children in refugee/IDP camps and in host communities. The project goal is to enable children with disabilities and other vulnerable children (age 0-12) to develop their full potential on an equal basis with other children and acquire fundamental educational and social skills through inclusive play, arts, games, sport, culture, and early years’ education in displacement settings in Bangladesh, Pakistan and Thailand.

For this purpose, the project engages various beneficiaries:

The Regional Program team is in charge of the overall management and coordination of the “Growing together” Project, in functional links with each country team, implementing the project (Bangladesh, Pakistan and Thailand).

Second Annual Project Review workshop will take place in Bangkok over a period of 4 days (25-28 June), and will include team members from project countries (Thailand, Bangladesh, Pakistan) and HQ. The Annual Project Review will bring together approximately 30 persons, including project managers, operational coordinators, technical coordinators, M&E officers, support services coordinators (representatives), HQ representatives, partners, and is an opportunity to build excitement and positive energy among the team for successful project implementation and realistic solutions to challenges.

The Annual Project Review workshop is an important opportunity to reflect on the project achievements and challenges, identify practical priorities and next steps. The current draft objectives of the Annual Project Review workshop are:

  1. To understand and recognize the teams' achievements in each country (according to the annual action plans); To understand challenges to the implementation; To share lessons learned, best practices & solutions; To analyse and problem solve the main challenges to implementation
  2. To discuss project operational strategy in each country (given the changing contexts), and to start planning process for 2019 (and until the end of the project, May 2020), including a sustainability (exit?) strategy
  3. To discuss the operational modalities of working with partners
  4. To present technical updates and challenges (gender, protection, etc)
  5. To discuss budget and finance monitoring: budget consumption and follow-up per country and of the project overall
  6. To discuss M&E system (framework) implementation and Mid-Term evaluation
  7. To discuss networking with the main stakeholders involved in the project thematic of intervention (protection, education, child development, displacement settings etc.) at country and international levels (in particular in Asia Region)
