Project Overview: The Field Band Foundation (FBF) is seeking an external evaluation consultant for a project entitled “Field Band Foundation PLUS”. The project goal is to leverage structures and processes in FBF bands to promote social inclusion as a basic human right, combatting social attitudes that fuel intolerance of difference and discrimination with respect to gender, sexual orientation and disabilities. The FBF aims to sufficiently capacitate young leaders to contribute to building socially inclusive environments through a combination of innovative education and advocacy interventions about social inclusion awareness, with a strong monitoring and evaluation component in order to produce results-based evidence.

- What conclusions and recommendations can be made from the above to guide the successful completion of the FBF PLUS programme to be applied to the remainder of the programme implementation period?
Scope of work: This review will be a midterm assessment of the implementation of the FBF PLUS programme covering the period 1 July 2018– 31 December 2019.
