Solidar Suisse and Muhammadiyah Disaster Management Center (MDMC)
Closing date: Monday 9th December 2019

Introduction/Background
On 28 September 2018, a series of strong earthquakes struck the Central Sulawesi Province, Indonesia. The strongest of these earthquakes was measured at 7.4 magnitude, with an epicenter in the Donggala district. The earthquake triggered a tsunami whose waves reached up to seven meters in some areas, striking Talise beach in Palu and many coastal areas in Donggala. The earthquakes also led to liquefaction on farm and urban land and several landslides. According to the latest overall figures from the Government, the death toll has reached 4.340, including 667 people who have been declared missing as well as 1.061 bodies that were unidentifiable. An overall number of 167’262 persons (52’306 HH) are still located, for their majority, in IDP camps, although a few households have already been relocated in common shelter barracks built by the Government or individual shelters built by NGOs.

Emergency Phase (October 2018-February 2019)
Solidar Suisse started its emergency response in October 2018 through a project with the network partner ASB (Arbeiter Samariter Bund – a locally registered German NGO) and implemented through five local Disabled People’s Organisations focusing on WASH in all three affected districts. MDMC has launched its humanitarian intervention shortly after the disaster happened with various partners covering the biggest part of the affected areas in Central Sulawesi with activities from food distribution over education, health to shelter and more. Officially, the emergency period has ended on 14 February 2019 and was then followed by the rehabilitation and reconstruction phase.

Rehabilitation and Reconstruction Phase (Feb 2019-April 2021)
Since March 2019, Solidar Suisse and MDMC joined forces and implemented the 4-month Coastal Communities Recovery in Donggala district of Central Sulawesi (COCORECO) project which ended June 2019. The project supported 268 fishermen households in 9 villages of Sirenja Sub-distict, Donggala Regency, by providing engines (218) and/or boats (189) to recover their pre-disaster livelihoods. In addition, the project provided cash to a total of 230 head of rural labour households for their community work in order to meet their basic needs during their unemployment period.

Following the COCORECO Project, Solidar Suisse and MDMC continued with the implementation of the Livelihood Recovery of Micro Entrepreneurs in Central Sulawesi. The overall objective of the Micro Enterprise Project (MEP) is to contribute to the sustainable economic recovery of the earthquake and tsunami affected populations in Donggala. The focus is on owners of micro enterprises whose businesses were impacted by the earthquake and/or tsunami and who will be supported through asset replacement and by improving their skills to increase their productivity and profitability. The goal is to cover all affected micro enterprises in the target area.

The project has two main outcomes:

  1. Earthquake and tsunami affected households sustainably recover their pre-disaster livelihoods.
    At least 1,200 micro enterprises are operational by the end of the project and the targeted micro entrepreneurs have recovered 70% of their previous income by the end of this project.
  2. Local partner organization (Central Sulawesi chapter) is prepared to respond to humanitarian crisis. MDMC’s Central Sulawesi chapter developed and/or adapted guidelines in accordance with international humanitarian standards and MDMC’s Central Sulawesi chapter developed their humanitarian response strategy.

Purpose
This midterm evaluation (MTE) shall assess the continued relevance of the project and the progress made towards achieving its planned objectives. Opportunities to make modifications to ensure the achievement of these objectives within the lifetime of the project shall be provided.
Clear and applicable recommendations will allow the project team to complete the second half of the project implementation in the highest possible quality, particularly in regards to relevance, effectiveness, efficiency, impact and sustainability.
Finally, clear recommendations for a potential project beyond

About us
Parenting Connection WA (PCWA) commenced on the 1st April 2017 as a partnership between Anglicare WA and Ngala to provide universal parenting services in nine regional and metropolitan areas. Anglicare WA subcontracts Wanslea to deliver PCWA in two regions.

The consortium partnership was established to deliver high-quality, locally-connected, place-based parenting services. The partnership is founded upon the active collaboration of the organisations, committed to working together and with parents, communities and other service providers in the delivery of an integrated suite of effective and efficient parenting services across Western Australia (WA).

PCWA is designed to ensure that parents and caregivers of children and young people across WA have the skills, knowledge and confidence to nurture the wellbeing and development of their children.

Scope of the Evaluation
The nine regions of PCWA are very diverse in factors such as location, environment, population, size, diversity of cultural groups and parenting concerns of the families. The aim of the evaluation is to demonstrate the effectiveness of the PCWA place-based model and partnership approach.

The evaluation will focus on the following key areas:

  • How effective are the components of the PCWA model, including Local Area Partnership Groups, a centralised Service Development Unit and placed based coordination?
  • How are economies of scales achieved through the partnerships of the three agencies?
  • What evidence exists to demonstrate:

         - place based service coordination supporting the local community?
         - local Parenting Capacity Fund meeting local needs?
         - building local capacity to support families within the specified local communities?

This evaluation will require travel to some rural and/or remote regions. It is anticipated that the work will involve interviews and focus groups and the deliverable is a written report.

Timeline
The Evaluation will be undertaken in 2020 and a final report submitted by January 2021.
