Request for Proposal (RFP) - Research Assignment in Tamil Nadu

Railway Children (RC) is an international organisation working with children connected with streets. RC works in UK, Kenya, Tanzania and India. Both globally and in India, the magnitude of children living in street situations is immense. Railway stations in India are a gateway for children separated from home before they slip into street life. Railway Children’s own survey in 2009 (secondary data) indicated that 112,000 children arrive in 35 major railway stations in a year, i.e. every 5 minutes a child is arriving alone at a station. 

Presently Railway Children India (RCI) is working in 5 States, covering 14 railway stations, one government children’s home and 17 source areas. RCI also works with the government systems for protecting the rights of vulnerable children.

Proposed Research

Railway Children India (RCI) intends to undertake a study of all children who have been restored to their families and those sent to long term care through its intervention (programme). It would give RCI insights on the effectiveness of our interventions, functioning of the systems and enhance our understanding on factors that enable children to remain at home or leave home. This study could validate the findings of our previous study- child reunification processes in India and also add value. 

Proposal invitation and key timelines 

Railway Children India (RCI) is looking for either a consultancy firm or a team of consultants to implement this research in alignment with the objectives. 

We expect the research to begin by 1st December 2016 and end by 1st week of May 2016, including the final report.
