TERMS OF REFERENCE

Somali Resilience Program (SomReP)

TRANSLATION CONSULTANCY – COMMUNITY ACTION AND ADAPTATION PLANS (CAAPs) FROM ENGLISH TO SOMALI LANGUAGE

BACKGROUND

The Somalia Resilience Programme (SomReP) is a consortium of seven international non-governmental organizations (INGO). SomReP works to enhance the resilience of chronically vulnerable households, communities and systems across Somalia. Droughts in 2006 and 2008, followed by a devastating drought and famine in 2011 and the current drought in the region have helped highlight the weak human and institutional capacity, lack of effective policies and regulations at the government level geared toward supporting Somalia’s vulnerable populations and the increasing fragmentation and instability in the country.

The Somalia Resilience Program (SomReP) is an ambitious approach to tackle the challenge of recurrent droughts—and the chronic vulnerability among pastoralists, agro-pastoralists, and peri-urban households in one of the poorest countries in the world. SomReP is being implemented through a consortium of 7 INGOs (ACF, ADRA, CARE, COOPI, DRC, Oxfam and WVI) with the Technical Unit housed under World Vision Somalia for the coordination and provision of technical support/direction to the program. These seven international organizations have deep experience in Somalia and jointly aim to build resilient households and communities across Somaliland, Punt land and South-Central Somalia using their own potential and abilities other than depending hand-outs. This approach was adopted to foster synergies on approaches and best practices by different members to better support the communities.

SomReP would like to engage a qualified and dynamic consultant to provide translation services from English to Somali language to its CAAPs documents developed from all our 147 implementation villages as shown in the table below.
