The Enhancing Livelihoods Fund (ELF) was established in January 2015 with support from Ford Foundation and Unilever. ELF provides finance for suppliers in Unilever’s supply chains to improve their social impact in sourcing from smallholders, empowering women in the supply chain and improving conditions for workers.
In 2015, Marcatus QED (MQED) was provided with an ELF grant to develop and provide an innovative training programme (Marcatus Mobile Education Platform) for gherkin farmers in the states of Karnataka and Tamil Nadu, India. This project focused on training Indian gherkin farmers in good agricultural practices with the aim of enhancing their livelihoods by improving incomes and empowering women.
Oxfam GB are recruiting a consultant/team of consultants to conduct the final evaluation of the ELF co-funded Marcatus Mobile Education Platform (MMEP) project. Indian national consultants preferred.

Proposals should be submitted to Alastair Stewart (firstname.lastname@example.org) by 9am UK time on Wednesday 7th March. Interviews will be conducted by Monday 12th March.
