UNICEF works in some of the world’s toughest places, to reach the world’s most disadvantaged children. To save their lives. To defend their rights. To help them fulfill their potential.

Across 190 countries and territories, we work for every child, everywhere, every day, to build a better world for everyone.

And we never give up.

For every child, a fair chance

UNICEF started operation in Cambodia in 1952 and opened first country office in 1973 in Phnom Penh. More information on what we do in Cambodia is available at https://www.unicef.org/cambodia/.

How can you make a difference?

Background

Around 65 per cent of Cambodia’s population is under 30 years old. Although the exact percentage of young people (15-24 years old) is not readily available, Cambodia is clearly one of the youngest nations in the region and the world. Young people possess an extraordinary potential to contribute to transforming economic and social outcomes, reducing inequality, and building inclusive, prosperous and sustainable societies. However, to do so they need the right skills and opportunities to realise their full potential, create positive change and influence leaders and decision makers.

However, Cambodian young people face significant challenges, including equal access to quality education and decent employment prospects; gaining and maintaining access to civic space; and handling situations of violence both on and offline. Progress has been uneven, with striking differences between urban and rural areas, and additional challenges for young people with disabilities and in ethnic minority communities. In addition, systemic gender inequities further constrain opportunities and compound risks for young girls as they transition through adolescence.

In August of 2021, UNICEF Cambodia launched Generation Future with one goal in mind – to help young people across Cambodia to build their futures and fulfil their potential.

These Terms of Reference (ToR) set out the purpose, objectives, methodology and operational modalities for an individual consultancy to evaluate the Generation Future Programme. The office is exploring multiple avenues to continue, scale and expand the programme; this evaluation will inform UNICEF Cambodia on the value of Generation Future going forward and will provide recommendations on the best pathways for extending and scaling the programme in the future.  This independent evaluation is expected to begin in November 2022 and end in April 2023, with preliminary findings emerging in February to ensure findings can be used in the planning and design of the next version of the programme.

Purpose

The purpose of the evaluation is to assess the relevance, effectiveness, efficiency, coherence, (early) impact and sustainability of the Generation Future programme. The evaluation will provide key recommendations on the value of the programme for UNICEF Cambodia, the programmatic architecture of the programme and on the best ways to scale, extend and sustain the programme in the future. It will examine the contribution that the private sector has made to Generation Future, the changes on the lives of the children and youth who have been part of the programme and most importantly, the impact that these youth have brought to their communities and other youth around them.

Work Assignment

The evaluation will focus on the 2022 version of the programme. However, it will need to review and understand what happened in the 2021 version in order to better understand the changes and modifications that took place in the second version of the programme.  All programme components are expected to be assessed. The geographical scope is national, with a focus on the location of the 28 mentees’ project implementation (13 from 2021 pilot and 15 from 2022 cohort). The evaluation will include the impact criterion; however it is expected that only short term impacts are captured at the time of the evaluation.
