About Mercy Corps and Small-Town WASH (STWASH)
Mercy Corps working in Nigeria since 2012 seeks to intervene in WASH. With an estimated 62 million people living without access to basic drinking water, and 42 million practicing open defecation, Nigeria has some of the largest gaps in access to water, sanitation, and hygiene (WASH) services in the world. The lack of access is most critical in the Northeastern States of Borno, Adamawa, and Yobe (collectively the BAY states) where the decade-long insurgency by Armed Opposition Groups (AOGs), as well as dynamic conflicts between ethnic and religious groups and organized crime, has led to displacement of millions of Nigerians (1.9 million people as of January 2019).
The Small-Town Water, Sanitation, and Hygiene (STWASH) program is a five-year, initiative funded by the United States Agency for International Development (USAID), covering the states of Adamawa, Yobe, and Borno in Northeast Nigeria. Our team, led by Mercy Corps in partnership with WaterAid. The two organizations are well placed to support the sustainable improvements in access to basic water and sanitation that are necessary to facilitate ongoing recovery, peacebuilding, and economic development across the region.
The goal of the program is to facilitate the economic recovery of some crisis-affected communities and bolster the capacity of the state governments in providing essential WASH services and creating and sustaining enabling environments for Small Towns Water Supply and Sanitation Agencies (STWSSAs) and Water Consumers Associations (WCAs) to operate.
The STWASH program is in the process of conducting a midline assessment for the nine small towns in the three states.
The objective of the assignment is a mid-term assessment conducted in the BAY states to assess the functionality of completed rehabilitated and constructed WASH infrastructure, states A midterm assessment will inform program performance in ways that will ensure accountability, learning and improvement over the remainder of the project’s life cycle, review the progress in achieving project targets as well as a general review of the rationality of the Theory of Change. Results from this assessment will provide insight on trends, results, and sustainability of the project and will inform further engagements with small town governance structures as well as project intervention strategies.
The Enumerator will work closely with ST WASH team to ensure the implementation of data collection for mid-term assessment (in health centers, household, schools, markets, and motor parks) and any other data collection exercise required within the contract period.
After receiving training on how to use the Data collection tool and understanding the assessment questionnaire, the enumerators will collect data via mobile devices in the field with ST WASH officers. This assessment will take place in small towns in these locations Yobe State; Damaturu, Potiskum, and Geidam, Adamawa State; Girei, Ganye and Song and Borno state; Biu, Shani and Kwaya Kusar, during daily field visits.
