PURPOSE: Seeking consultants to serve as proposal writers for potential new projects/programs (both humanitarian emergency and/or development programming) for CARE in Sudan – Development of an Approved Vendor List


Overview. CARE International is an independent, non-political, non-denominational humanitarian network that fights extreme poverty and advocates for access to basic human rights, especially for women and girls. In 2020, 1,500 emergency and development projects were implemented in over 100 countries, reaching over 100 million direct beneficiaries. The CARE network addresses the root causes of poverty through programs in health, including sexual and reproductive health, food security, livelihoods, access to clean water, education, and climate change adaptation with a cross-cutting focus on gender. In line with this overall CARE vision, CARE International in Sudan (CIS) has an upcoming, new program development strategy with its overall goal to strengthen CARE's place as one of the leading organizations in Sudan in effective programming, especially to reduce gender-based violence (GBV), strengthen gender justice, access to basic services, and empower women and youth to perform active role as members of society. Overall, CARE International has been working in Sudan since 1979, and currently implements major programs in Six states in Sudan.

The programs align with national and county level priorities focusing on refugee assistance, health and nutrition, water, sanitation and Hygiene promotion, financial inclusion, adaptation to climate change, disaster risk reduction and resilience building, agricultural value chains and humanitarian and emergency response. Overall, with the main coordination and representation office in Khartoum supported by multiple field offices spread across various States, CARE currently employs over 200 staff in Sudan, manages an average annual (and growing) portfolio of around $15+ million, and works with local communities to build long-term solutions improving resilience to shocks such as (continued) conflict and natural disaster, as well as to defend dignity and fight against poverty.
