German-based Kindernothilfe (KNH) was founded in 1959 and is currently one of the largest Christian organisations in Europe focused on children. The overall goal of KNH is to contribute to form a world in which children and young people can live a life of human dignity, develop personal talents and, together with their families and communities, take their development into their own hands. Today, KNH supports more than 1 500 000 children and young people in 29 countries in Africa, Asia, Latin America and Eastern Europe. KNH has worked in South Africa for over 30 years and currently supports 13 partner organisations in KwaZulu-Natal, Eastern Cape, Limpopo and Gauteng. The KNH Country Coordinator is based in Durban.
KNH requires a consultancy for supporting the writing of security plans for KNH in South Africa. A Security Operational Plan is required that outlines the standard operating procedures that should be followed by all Kindernothilfe (KNH) personnel and by anyone visiting KNH partners in South Africa from overseas. The Security Operational Plan for KNH in South Africa should be in line with the KNH Global Security Policy.
The final document needs to at least contain the following:
- A synopsis of the country security context;
- A stakeholder and situation analysis;
- A security risk assessment;
- Preventative measures;
- Contingency plans for likely scenarios;
- Clarification of roles and responsibilities for incident response and crisis management;
- Procedures for incident reporting;
- Retreat plans (hibernation, relocation, evacuation); and
- A statement of policy regarding collaboration on security with others operating in the same environment.
After the Security Operational Plan for South Africa is finalised, a one day training for local KNH partners needs to be held in Durban to explain the Security policy and operational plans.
KNH prefers the consultancy process to be conducted and completed before the end of 2016.
National and KwaZulu-Natal based security consultants or agencies interested in being considered for this assignment are requested to register their interest by submitting the following information:
