Westminster Foundation for Democracy (WFD) works in Kenya to ensure that effective provisions are in place within political parties, to respond to the strategic and practical needs of Persons with Disabilities (PWDs) within their internal structures, political commitments and policies. This is done through the Kenya Inclusive Political Parties (KIPP) Programme, with funding from Demo Finland.
WFD is therefore seeking a consultant to carry out a comprehensive review of 10 partner political party’s documents which include manifestos and relevant institutional policies. The consultant will seek to identify the various gaps and provide possible recommendations that will strengthen the internal party structures, manifestos, and policies in response to the strategic and practical political inclusion needs of PWDs.
The output of this process will be crucial in guiding WFD’s KIPP programme on bilateral engagements with political party leadership aimed at addressing the identified gaps highlighted, as well as marshalling goodwill for adoption and implementation of the recommended strategies towards more effective inclusion of PWDs in political party activities, practices and processes.
Proposals may be submitted by individuals, teams of experts or consultancy firms. The selected contractor must demonstrate proven experience in reviewing and analyzing institutional documents. Knowledge and experience of Kenyan politics is essential.
This assignment will be conducted and completed within 37 consultancy days spread within the period December 2020 to early January 2021. The consultants/consulting firms interested in this assignment are expected to submit proposals (both technical and financial) with CVs of the proposed team.
The technical proposal must detail the following:
- Objectives and understanding of the assignment

- Availability to deliver the assignment within the required timeframe
