EOI Description:
Background

The Ministry of Gender, Children and Social Protection (MoGCSP) is implementing the LEAP Programme, which aims at reducing poverty in Ghana by providing cash grant to extremely poor and vulnerable households. The LEAP Programme targets beneficiary households for social protection and pro-poor interventions for the poorest, vulnerable and excluded people.
The objective of the LEAPprogramme is to reduce poverty by increasing consumption and promoting access to services and opportunities such access to health care services, to increase basic school enrolment, attendance and retention among the extremely poor and vulnerable.

The programme is funded by the Government of Ghana with additional financial and technical support from the Department for International Development (DFID), UNICEF and the World Bank.

The LEAP programme is continually taking steps to improve the performance of the programme for the benefit of the beneficiaries. The LEAP programme is keen to understand what the beneficiaries’ impressions of the programme’s activities and to assess whether beneficiaries themselves are satisfied with the systems employed. A beneficiary assessment is an investigation of the perceptions of a systematic sample of beneficiaries and other stakeholders to ensure that their concerns are heard and incorporated into project and policy formulation. Perfect execution of this assignment and the adoption of the views of LEAP beneficiaries with respect to their socio cultural conditions will ensure real participation of beneficiaries in the programme and long lasting benefits beyond the cash grants.

To attain this objective, the Ministry through LEAP Management Secretariat wishes to engage a firm to conduct a Beneficiary Assessment (BA) to identify and design development activities and highlight any challenges to beneficiaries’ participation in the programme by holding consultations with programme beneficiaries and stakeholders.

The aim of this exercise is not to produce statistical representative data (this is already provided for by the impact assessment) but to understand the daily experiences of LEAP beneficiaries such as the problems they face, the strategies they use to deal with these problems and their experiences with the programme services. This will enable the programme determine how to better support beneficiaries to enable them leap out of poverty.

Objectives of the assignment

The objective of this BA is to assess how LEAP beneficiaries and stakeholders perceive and value (i) the programme design, (ii) the activities the programme is implementing, and (iii) the changes that are necessary to enable the programme meet its objectives.

This BA will assess how LEAP beneficiaries and stakeholders perceive the programme both in terms of design and implementation with respect to the following areas of the programme:
• Targeting
