  1. About Oxfam

Oxfam is an international confederation of 19 organizations networked together in 97 countries. As part of a global movement for change, we are working together to end world poverty and injustice. We work with thousands of partners in countries around the world and employ staff in a wide variety of posts. We work directly with communities, and we work with the powerful to enable the most marginalized to improve their lives and livelihoods and have a say in decisions that affect them.

  1. Oxfam Social protection portfolio

INCLUSIVE SOCIAL PROTECTION is critical to achieving gender equality and poverty reduction effort in Cambodia. Social protection has taken policy momentum in Cambodia. The Royal Government of Cambodia has recently initiated several social protection schemes, National Social Security Fund (NSSF) in particular, which greatly benefit apparel industry employees. Through this scheme, NSSF reported that in 2020 alone a total of 80,000 female garment workers received maternity allowances from the government which accounted for USD$7.9 million.

The National Social Protection Council (NSPC) also reported that approximately 300,000 female workers both in formal and informal sectors, who have given birth in the past four years, between January 2018 to March 2022 benefited from cash support which accounts for US$30.1 million. And at the peak of COVID-19 pandemic in Cambodia, workers who were laid-off also received support in the forms of cash-based transfer programmes.

Oxfam, through the Voice for Change Programme, is now jointly implementing several social protection initiatives with partner organisations. Those initiatives include:

  1. Purpose of this consultancy service

Oxfam in Cambodia, through the Voice for Change Programme (V4C), has long been working with and supporting partner organisations, including the new established SP4ALL coalition, in terms of financial resource and technical aspect to influence the policy outcomes and better represent their Constituents to the national and regional policy dialogue concerning social protection.

And to ensure that all partner organisations and members of SP4ALL coalition are better aware and knowledgeable of social security policy and best practices from some OECD countries, Oxfam is allocating resource to support the design of training curriculum and to provide capacity building training to those organisations. This training manual will be used to train the new generation of Oxfam partner organisations, union leaders, and members of SP4ALL to have a better understanding on social security policies and best practices, particularly from some OECD countries where social security policies have long been implemented.

Building on these, Oxfam is seeking a consultant(s) to: 

  • Design a training curriculum drawn on international social protection policies or best practices,
  • Provide a capacity building training to 50 participants who are members of trade union, Social Protection for All (SP4ALL) coalition, and Oxfam partner organisations who work in the social protection setting,

We prefer that the development of this training curriculum (or manual) and the capacity building training is drawn from best practices of policies from OECD countries like pension fund in Australia, New Zealand, Sweden, or Germany
