Income Generation support consultant (local)

Mae-Sot, Thailand 

Submission deadline: 3rd Feb 2017

Context
Teach A Man To Fish aims to eradicate poverty by providing good quality, low-cost, relevant education to young people in developing countries. We support schools to establish school-based enterprises - from eggs to grain storage, crafts to a hotel. These enterprises serve both as learning platforms, and as income-generating activities for the school, as students work on the businesses alongside their academic education. In this way, students learn valuable business and entrepreneurial skills and the school has the ability to raise additional funds in a sustainable way. The student’s involvement in the businesses makes their education more relevant to the workplace and means graduates leave school better prepared to succeed in work, in further education and in life.
 
Save the Children has led global action on children’s rights for more than 90 years. The ‘Improving Migrant Protection and Assistance for Children in Thailand’ (IMPACT) project has been and continues to develop local child protection mechanisms that are relevant to government policy framework, and integrate these into existing child protection systems so migrant children can live within an effective protection system and have access to effective care, education and health services. This consultancy falls under the objective of promoting access to education services and specifically looks at the challenge of closure of Migrant Learning Centres in Mae Sot due to financial gaps. The consultancy is called for as there is a need to develop and implement a model to enhance the financial sustainability and self-sufficiency of migrant learning centres in Mae Sot.
 
Under this consultancy project TAMTF is looking for an experienced local consultant to support with the delivery of the project activities.
 
Purpose and scope of this consultancy
This project aims to enhance the financial sustainability and self-sufficiency of migrant learning centres in Mae Sot to addresses their financial gaps and in turn the risk of closure. The overarching goal is to improve the financial sustainability of participating Migrant Learning Centres and have a workable model that may contribute toward addressing the current funding gaps. Under the direction of TAMTF, the local consultant will give on-the-ground support to MLCs.
