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 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.

This will enable the programme determine how to better support beneficiaries to enable them leap out of poverty.Objectives of the assignmentThe 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 • Enrolment• Payments• Case Management• Communication• Programme Implementers (LMU, MoGCSP, RSWO, DSWO and CLICs/CFP)• The need for re-certification, graduation/complementarity and exitScope of the services requiredThe consulting firm will first familiarize itself with the design and operational cycle of the LEAP Programme.
