Porticus Asia (www.porticus.com) advises a group of private family foundations on their philanthropic giving. We are looking for external support in making strategic decisions regarding these foundations’ future investments in early childhood development (ECD) in Asia. Our long-term goal is to embed whole child development (WCD) approaches in early childhood systems, as a tool for overcoming the impact of extreme adversity. By WCD we refer to an approach to development/education that is not limited only to ‘academic’ growth, but also emphasizes emotional, spiritual, relational and experiential growth. Our approach to achieving this goal is to strengthen the systems surrounding parents, caregivers, and the early childhood workforce; and in particular, in strengthening the linkages between knowledge, policy, and practice in those systems.
We are inviting proposals to assess the relative needs, momentum, and opportunities with regards to the above goal, within eight Asian countries/cities, as well as from a regional perspective.
Expressions of interest are invited by 4th April 2018, and should include a description of your relevant experience, and an approximate budget. Proposals should be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org
