The International Youth Foundation (IYF)

Opportunity closing date: Wednesday, 23 March, 2016

Opportunity type: Call for proposals


The International Youth Foundation (IYF) is currently implementing the second phase of Zimbabwe:Works (Z:W), which is a USAID, DFID, and SIDA-funded 60-month (June 2012-December 2017) initiative. The second phase of the project, which commenced in January 2015, will economically empower 22,000 Zimbabweans, particularly young women, and enable them to contribute towards and benefit from economic growth in Zimbabwe. As a part of this second phase, IYF plans to implement an impact evaluation to rigorously measure and assess the impact of the project interventions through a mixed methods approach, with a quantitative component using a quasi-experimental evaluation design and a qualitative, participatory component.


We are currently soliciting proposals from evaluation consultants and firms interested in leading the implementation of this impact evaluation in Zimbabwe. The full Request for Proposals (RFP) and supporting annexes outlines the overall scope of work, methodology, and proposal evaluation matrix, as well as submission instructions.
