PLAN INTERNATIONAL NIGERIA
BETTER LIFE OPTIONS AND OPPORTUNITIES MODEL PLUS (BLOOM+) PROJECT
TERMS OF REFERENCE FOR CONSULTANT FOR A MID-TERM REVIEW
Plan International Nigeria in partnership with Mothers Against Child Abandonment (MACA) and Africa Community Development Organisation (ACDO) is implementing BLOOM+ in Cross River State (CRS). CRS has seen recent economic growth in agriculture and service sectors (tourism and hospitality), but this growth has not led to significant reductions in unemployment in the State. In fact, unemployment of young adults aged 15-24 in Cross River State in 2012 was 35.9% compared to 23.9% in Nigeria, and the rate increased each year from 2009 to 2011 in all categories (male, female, rural and urban). The unemployment rate is said to be higher for females than males in both rural and urban areas and the Cross River State government acknowledged the challenges of school dropouts and unemployed youths. The government is currently focused on attempting to tackle these challenges with several youth-focused projects, including a microfinance enterprise fund. However, these projects could be described as a drop in the ocean of employment opportunities when compared to the number of unemployed youths in need of jobs in the State. The State Government is actively seeking new partners to help address these challenges, build youth skills, and stimulate interest in its programs.
Through the BLOOM+ project Plan International Nigeria intends to help the state mitigate and reduce these identified youth challenges by targeting young people ages 14-16, in two adjoining Local Government Areas (LGAs): Odukpani and Calabar South by building critical life skills and preparing young people for work.
The Better Life Options and Opportunities Model (BLOOM) is a non-formal education program developed in 1987 that has since been adapted and applied in more than fifteen countries. The model is focused on gender-transformative delivery of life skills and empowerment of adolescents, and particularly girls.
The project in Nigeria was first implemented in Akwa Ibom State from 2006-2011 reaching more than 600 out of school youth (51% of beneficiaries) re-enrolled in formal or vocational education. Plan International Nigeria is working to implement BLOOM in Cross River State, where the levels of school dropped-outs and unemployed youths are high and the government has shown interest to support youth development. One of Plan’s additional strategies is to reinforce auricular content and place priority emphasis on locally relevant, age appropriate, transferrable employment-relevant skills (now BLOOM+) for the target populace.
The goal of the BLOOM+ project is to help 1,200 adolescent girls (80%) and boys (20%), aged 14-16, envision and attain productive future, through:
Improving youths’ life skills and capacity to make healthy choices;
Building youths’ capacities in transferrable employment-relevant skills;
Fostering community and government support for personal and career development opportunities for adolescents.
