TERMS OF REFERENCE FOR CONDUCTING END TERM EVALUATION FOR #SAUTI JASIRI PROJECT

1.Introduction

PAWA INITIATIVE is a collaborative arts and culture hub whose vision is ‘Active Citizens Driving Change”. PAWA works in partnership with artistes, awakening in them a socio economic and political consciousness and empowering them to connect their art to the pursuit of a better Kenya.

By harnessing the ‘active art’ produced by the activated artistes, PAWA hopes to ignite social consciousness among the citizens that will drive them (citizens) to be active in governance issues affecting them and demand for positive change in their families, communities and in the society. PAWA achieves this via various programs including master classes for artistes, curation of various forms of artistic expressions, offering space and platforms for showcasing of the arts and networking the artistes with their peers, potential clients and engaging in ‘artivism’ (Arts for Social Justice).

2.Background of Sauti Jasiri project

PAWA has for the last two years 2020-2021 been implementing a high impact integrated arts and advocacy project #SautiJasiri in the informal settlements of Mukuru, Kayole and Dandora. #SautiJasiri project focused on expanding the Human Rights space in the aforementioned settlements, aiming at empowering the duty bearers (citizens) to know and demand for their rights from the right holders (Government Officials). The project deployed three strategies i.e. Public Interest Litigation, Citizen Journalism and Artivism to empower the communities and ultimately contribute to a shifting of the power balance from the right holders to the duty bearers.
