  1. Background

Sightsavers is an international development organisation preventing avoidable blindness and promoting disability rights. With its headquarter based in United Kingdom, we work in more than 30 countries alongside government institutions, bilateral, civil society organisations and private sector to sustainably impact our beneficiaries and their communities.

In the past four years, we have significantly invested in implementing disability inclusive programmes, with focus on inclusive economic empowerment in Nigeria, Kenya, Uganda and Bangladesh, as well as producing labour market assessment for each of these countries.

While we plan to scale out, in line with our social inclusion strategy, it is our approach to consistently generate contextual analysis that inform our programme design and considerably strengthen our funding proposal.

It is against this background we therefore call for expression of interest to conduct a labour market assessment that provides us with situational analysis on disability inclusive economic landscape in Tanzania

The assessment is expected to generate insight from existing disability legislative framework, perspectives from government institutions, organisations of persons with disability, education/training institutes, job seekers with disability, private and public employers, available coordinating system and supporting bodies.

A. Analyse secondary sources of data on labour market participation and employment, identify sectors which have the greatest potential for inclusive employment (versus those with have more of a relevance to economic growth), key labour market system stakeholders and relevant labour market governance.

C. Make informed conclusions on where an employment programme (including self-employment) should focus on in the country context and what approach is needed in achieving it.
