Tender for Provision of classroom furniture to ECW Supported
Schools in Puntland State of Somalia.
Somali Institute for Development Research and Analysis (SIDRA) was conceived by a
group of intellectuals, opinion former, research professionals and practitioners with the
aim of creating new ways of thinking about and solving the range of complex challenges
that face Somalia – from socio-economic development, governance reforms to climate
change since 2015. SIDRA since 2015 has been a fully registered and licensed nongovernmental research and policy support organization within Puntland State and Federal Government of Somalia.
The institute serves a broad mix of public, private, and civil society organizations. We
have established a flexible structure that quickly brings together the right team and
experience to effectively address all research and policy analysis needs of our clients. The
quality of our people gives us the capacity to fulfill our objectives. We therefore
continually identify people with exceptional skills and invest in nurturing their skills and
competencies. This diversity of background, expertise, discipline and gender ensures that
we are a credible and efficient change facility. Besides research programs SIDRA works
on education, democracy and the rule of law, employment, health and energy and
environment as well as gender equity and equality. The United Nations (UN) Convention
on the Rights of the Child underpins SIDRA’s work and approach.
SIDRA Institute has more than 5 years of experience in successfully managing
institutional grants. Gender Policy in Education in Emergency is one the areas that
works in partnership to deliver child-focused programming in Puntland to ensure
Gender mainstreaming in Ministry of Education and Higher Education (MoEHE) Policy
documents and legal frameworks. Our headquarters is in Garowe and our researches and
other development programs cover the whole country.
Background of the Project
The Puntland State of Somalia as a Federal Member State is in the midst of momentous
political, social, and economic transformation since its leaders declared the territory an
autonomous region in 1998. The region has managed to maintain relative peace and
security in recent years, which has enabled it to establish political and administrative
institutions, basic social services, an active civil society, and a growing private enterprise
community. In addition, much progress has been made in the education sector in the last
few years. Despite these improvements, however, educational provision, participation,
and completion in Puntland are among the lowest in the world. The GER for primary and
secondary education as per the Ministry of Education and Higher Education(MoEHE)
2016/2017 EMIS stands at 58.2%(Girls: 54.4%; Boys:64.0%) and 16.3%( Girls; 12.7%; Boys:
Research and practice of acute and protracted crisis highlight how education can protect
vulnerable children and youth by providing them with an appropriate environment
within which to nurture their learning and psychosocial well-being. a) Many students
succeed academically despite adverse economic conditions, homelessness and transitory
situations, conflict-affected settings, social exclusion, and other overwhelming risks.
Although the social and economic environment of a learner is a significant predictor of
academic results, additional success factors are determined by the positive school and life
outcomes of children and youth living in adverse contexts. These include individual
factors (e.g., hope, purpose, social competence, problem-solving, and autonomy), b)
environmental factors such as care, support systems, high expectations and opportunities
for meaningful participation in school, family, and the community also goes a long way
in determining the resilience of the community and the children, c) and institutional
factors such as relevant policies, programs and resources for access with safety, learning
with socio-emotional well-being, and productive and social transformation skills.
To address the existed challenges, consortium comprising of Save the Children, CARE
and SIDRA was formed to implementing the three-year ECW-funded Education
facilitated Multi-Year Resilience Program to achieve improved learning and wellbeing of
children affected by emergencies in drought-affected areas in Puntland and build
resilience of affected population through increased access to quality, inclusive, genderresponsive, child-friendly and sustainable education to the delivery of effective primary
Education (PE) including special needs, Secondary Education (SE), Accelerated Basic
Education (ABE), Technical Vocational Education & Training (TVET, Non Formal
Education (NFE), education services addressing the populations priority needs., thus,
MYRP consortium in close coordination with MOEHE is planning to undertake baseline

assessment for selected targets.
