One of these key strategic change platforms is Strengthening Families-Thriving Children Strategic Change Platform 5 (SCP5). This Strategic Change Platform is a bold initiative to support vulnerable children to thrive in safe, healthy, and nurturing families, create more resilient and supportive communities, work with our Catholic partners, civil society and governments to establish policies and systems that strengthen families. SCP5 also aims to influence governments, donors, Catholic actors and other regional and global stakeholders to redirect resources and support to strengthening families.The platform is implemented across CRS country programs and works around the world to influence other countries, regions and global actors to change practices, policies and resources in support of family strengthening and family care. One of the platform’s flagship initiatives, Changing the Way We Careâ„ , amplifies a global movement to prevent children from entering orphanages and to place children currently in orphanages in safe and nurturing families. Since 2018, the initiative has been active in three demonstration countries (Kenya, Guatemala, Moldova).Through the Inclusive Family Strengthening (IFS) Project in Zambia, CRS is building upon decades of experience in community and family strengthening activitiesâ€”and our strong partnerships with the Catholic Church, governments, and local organizationsâ€”to ensure families in targeted communities have the resources and skills to care for children. To strengthen families, CRS is helping caregivers learn and practice positive parenting; connect isolated families with supportive communities; help childrenâ€”especially children with disabilitiesâ€”attend remote or in-school learning, access health and social services; and build familiesâ€™ resources through savings groups, cash grants, school vouchers and financial education.CRS aims to build families’ resources and skills to care for children – especially children with disabilities.To prevent separation and support the reintegration of children into family care, CRS has aimed to improve models of family care specifically designed for children with disabilities. Children with disabilities are more likely to experience maltreatment in general. Research shows that children with disabilities are three-to-four times more likely to experience violence than their non-disabled peers. Furthermore, children with disabilities and their families may struggle to access support services and are, therefore, often the last ones to benefit from care reform. With the new family strengthening activities under IFS, CRS hopes to prevent separation, especially for children with disabilities.In 2021, IFS developed a Disability Inclusive Positive Parenting Curriculum to offer tailored parenting support to families of children with disabilities. Now that the curriculum is complete, IFS would like to train CRS and partner staff along with volunteers so that the content can be rolled out at the community level.Purpose of the consultancyThe Training Will Be Delivered In English To Approximately 25 Persons Based In Zambia, IncludingThe consultant will facilitate a Training of Trainers (ToT) with the projectâ€™s newly developed Disability Inclusive Positive Parenting Curriculum, to provide guidance on its use, transmit knowledge of its content, and build skills of the trainers on how to better support volunteers who will work directly with families of children with disabilities on positive parenting skills.
