The William and Lily Foundation (WLF) is a Jakarta-based philanthropic organization established in 2009. Our mission is to empower vulnerable and marginalized communities by bridging learning with access to opportunities. As an active grant-making foundation, we work closely with local implementation partners on four focus areas: Education, Health, Economic Empowerment and Enabling Environment.
WLF seeks a Consultant (individual/team of individuals) to conduct a needs assessment of weaving community in Southwest Sumba focusing on socio-economic conditions of weavers, identification of skills and knowledge on weaving, access to materials and methods, financial performance, access to finance and market.
WLF is keen to learn of suitable entry points for future support program(s) based on results of the assessment, as well as in better understanding the prevailing cultural practices and barriers for a strategic support that can improve welfare and strengthen sustainable weaving culture in Southwest Sumba.
While it is not a direct link to weaving culture or activities, WLF believes in the important role of women in safeguarding the health of the family. Through this needs assessment, WLF would also like to collect information on the dietary profile of the weaving community (at individual and/or household) level. The data collected illustrate the role of women weavers as decision maker/provider of food and sufficient to provide a portrait of the nutritional intake of women weavers and children under five years old in the same household.
The assessment will collect data and information from weaving community in at least 3-5 (three to five) villages in Southwest Sumba. Selection of key respondents will be done following a discussion with WLF and gathering of input from WLF’s implementing partners.
WLF also hope that the assessment can provide insights to possible linkages between an economic empowerment support program and WLF’s health and education programs.
Prospective Consultant is expected to deliver a Needs Assessment on Weaving Community in Southwest Sumba. Both qualitative and/or quantitative data will be used to investigate and analyze the issues that informed the needs assessment. These included primary and secondary data collected from target respondents and key stakeholders. Emphasis will be placed on delivery of the following information and analysis:
The assessment is expected to start in June 2021 and prospective consultant will be expected to submit their final findings within 3 (three) months from the start of data collection activities in Southwest Sumba.
