The Uzalendo Project is a partnership of 2 civil society organizations, namely Forum 43 Kenya and Action Network for the Disabled (ANDY), who serves as the lead implementer. The Uzalendo Project’s mission is to leverage inclusion of traditionally sidelined voices in governance and service delivery processes in their communities to influence and secure positive outcomes as far as enjoyment of their basic rights accorded under the Kenyan Constitution.

A great majority of poor and marginalized people are not involved in the processes of public participation, accountability and gender inclusion, especially groups experiencing dual marginalization, including persons with disabilities and the elderly. Most of these communities are found in informal settlements, peri-urban and remote rural areas.

To drive an informed civic engagement towards the 2017 general elections, Uzalendo project plans to carry out a digital mapping exercise in sample areas of Kilifi and Kibera.

This will focus on key socio-economic indicators on health and educational facilities like the number and location of health facilities, schools and other educational facilities offering services. This research will be complemented and validated through focus group discussions and key informant interviews which will be published separately in the form of a report.

We are therefore looking for a consulting firm or an individual with expertise to carry out the said exercise as referenced below:
