Purpose of Activity/Assignment
With the financial support of the Government of United Kingdom through the Modern Slavery Fund, UNICEF in Albania is implementing the programme ‘Transforming National Response to Human Trafficking in and from Albania’ (hereby referred as the “Programme”), targeting the regions of Tirana, Kukes, Diber and Shkoder.
The first cycle of Programme implementation initiated in December 2019 and ended in September 2022. In October 2022, the second cycle initiated, titled “Scaling up an efficient nationwide system response to human trafficking in and from Albania” expected to end in March 2025, with a revised Theory of Change and more in-depth implementation within the same geographic focus. The main objectives of the program for which the qualitative measures are required are:
- Outcome 1: Vulnerable adolescents and communities are increasingly resilient to trafficking: they have access to livelihood opportunities, receive enhanced information, and are able to challenge harmful gender norms.
- Outcome 2: PV/VoT and population at high risk are empowered through a continuum of protection and rehabilitation services to reduce (re-) victimization and (re-) trafficking.
- Outcome 3: Anti-trafficking coordination mechanics are enhanced to advance an effective and evidence-based response
In November 2022, UNICEF Albania released the Evaluation Report of the Programme1 (2019-2022), publishing the recommendations of the evaluation team for the future implementation. Recommendation 6 of the Report asks UNICEF Albania to improve on the qualitative measurement of the results of the programme, starting from integration of qualitative indicators to the results framework and preparation of qualitative information/analysis for programme improvement and public awareness.
