OXFAM International Job Consultant: Evaluator for Gender Justice Programme 2013 - 2016

OXFAM is an International Non Governmental Organisation working across the world with a vision of just a world without poverty: a world in which people can influence decisions that affect their lives, enjoy their rights, and assume their responsibilities as full citizens of a world in which all human beings are valued and treated equally.

Vision for Indonesia 
We envision an Indonesia where women are equal citizens and everyone can enjoy their rights even in times of shocks and disaster.

Currently we are looking for: Evaluator for Gender Justice Programme 2013-2016, Oxfam in Indonesia

As defined in the Oxfam Country Strategy (OCS) for Indonesia developed in 2015, for Oxfam in Indonesia, Gender Justice means that women and girls are participating equally in all economic, social, political and cultural aspects of their lives, having leadership roles, accessing resources and services and participating in decisions that affect their lives (OCS, 2015). Regardless of the works that has been done by gender activists in Indonesia, as well as increasing Government of Indonesia’s commitment,  to increase gender equality; , Indonesia’s Gender Inequality Index (GII) remains low. The 2014 GII released by the UNDP stated that Indonesia holds the 110th position of 188 countries. This indicated that the achievement of gender justice in the country remains an ongoing challenge.

In accordance to Indonesia’s Oxfam Country Strategy (OCS) of 2015 (and similarly the Joint Country Assessment and Strategy (JCAS) before that), Oxfam in Indonesia aims that “By 2020, women and girls are having control over their body and their lives, access over resources and participate in decision making where it affects their lives and that of their families and communities.” In achieving that, Oxfam in Indonesia’s Gender Justice (GJ) Programme (supported by the Australia-NGO Cooperation Programme (ANCP) through Oxfam Australia) are designed as a standalone programme, specifically designed to address gender justice issues in four interlinked focal areas: (1) strengthening women movement, (2) increasing women political participation, (3) reducing Violence Against Women and Girls (VAWG), and (4) engaging men and male-dominated organization in promoting women leadership and reducing Gender Based Violence. 

The main objective of the evaluation is to review the strategies and approaches used by the GJ programme and assess the success of the programme in achieving the desired results.
The specific objectives of the evaluation is to evaluate the following aspects of the programme:
