Job Summary
HIHEA (TZ) is seeking a highly qualified individual/consultancy firm to review its training manual, initially developed and used in Kenya, and adapt its content to the Tanzanian context in order to increase its relevance and impact for HIHEA (TZ) beneficiaries. These beneficiaries are mainly rural women and youth aged 18-35 and living in Northern Tanzania.
  • Minimum Qualification: Masters
  • Experience Level: Management level
  • Experience Length: 5 years

Job Description
The Hand in Hand enterprise and job creation approach is based on a philosophy of self-help, providing  training, skills and support to enable poor people, particularly women and community in general , to build and sustain independent, market-based, economic activities. This provides for a higher level of income for them and their families, which in turn contributes to greater food security, better education for their children, increased access to healthcare, improved housing and overall improved livelihoods. 

The model is based on a tried and tested approach to job creation using four interlinked components: 
1. Social mobilisation; 
2. Business training; 
3. Access to credit and 
4. Linking entrepreneurs to markets. 

Seven (7) training modules act as guides and references for the Business Relationship Officers (HIHEA  (TZ) trainers) as they train members/beneficiaries. The modules are:
1. Group Formation training module
2. Savings/Resource Mobilization training module
3. Enterprise Development training module
4. Financial Management training module
5. Credit Access training module
6. Value-chain Management training module
7. Climate change resilience training module

All seven (7) training modules have been developed in English by HiH EA in Kenya. The rationale for the  review and contextualization is to ensure the modules’ content and message are relevant to our Tanzanian target groups and to the Tanzanian local context, as well as to ensure that beneficiaries receive best in class training that is relevant and participatory. 

Objective of the Assignment
