Damnok Toek (DT) has been working with alternative care services for children with disabilities (CWD) in Neak Loeung, Prey Veng Province, since 2016. In 2021, DT’s Small Group Homes (SGH) have undergone a major renovation with the intention of distancing the living arrangement from a Residential Care Institution (RCI) to be closer to an acceptable and internationally recognized form of alternative care.

We are hiring a research consultant who can document these changes as well as put this alternative care model in discussion with local and international partners and experts for the development of a document detailing the process that can then be used as a base for the development of guidelines on the implementation of SGHs for CWD in Cambodia.

  • Write draft guidelines for the implementation of SGHs for CWD in Cambodia

Responsibilities:

  • Participate and assist in consulting visits from local and international partners.
  • Participate and facilitate workshops and meetings with local and international partners.

  • Write local and international partner meeting minutes.
  • Compile and analyse all information from visits, workshops, and consulting meetings.

  • Document the process and reflection on the implementation of DT Small Group Homes and the transformation of the SGHs into a more family-like and community-based form of alternative care.
  • Compile all feedback and changes to put together guidelines to create a completed document detailing the processes and procedures used for this project.

Requirements:

  • Motivation to work for a grassroots organization
  • Proven experience in writing reports and documents
