Living Earth Uganda calls for proposals and bids for two consultancy work in their 'Jobs and Oil Project' from those qualified as per Terms of Reference (TORs). See details below on each of the consultancy calls and download the TORs to guide your proposal / bid preparation.
A: CONSULTANCY CALL 1
We seek for qualified individuals that are interested in the development and delivery of a teacher training course/modules for teachers of Mathematics and Science(s) in secondary schools. The intervention is also referred to as Science, Technology Engineering and Maths (abbreviated to STEM). The STEM program will be implemented in Secondary schools in Hoima and Buliisa. The ToT will cover the aspects of teaching methodology in view of an emerging oil economy in Hoima and Buliisa Districts in Uganda.
B: CONSULTANCY CALL 2
Uganda will soon be joining the list of oil producing nations following recent discoveries of vast reserves. This news has been a source of excitement for many with the deposits holding huge economic potential. However, as experience has demonstrated, the wealth generated from the oil industry does not necessarily entail improved living conditions or greater employment opportunities to local communities.
The Jobs and Oil project aims at improving employment possibilities and participation in decision-making processes for disadvantaged groups in Western Uganda – Hoima, Buliisa and Masindi. It will strengthen micro enterprises and facilitate participation of women and young people to engage with the products and services that come alongside the oil industry and through stakeholder forums. This will empower the local community to be included in the process of decision-making as well as taking advantage of the economic opportunities that will emerge.
This programme is jointly funded by the EC, DFID and Comic Relief. Comic Relief is funding an objective focused specifically on developing enterprises in rural communities that neighbour national parks and reserves. This assignment will support the development of these activities, providing an assessment of the training gaps of different owners and managers of rural enterprises.
