Call for offers for a baseline study for 'Promotion and realization of the rights of Roma in Kosovo and Albania'



December 20, 2023


Karl Kübel Stiftung für Kind und Familie (KKS) and Kosovo Open Society Foundation (KFOS), with co-funding by the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ), invite all interested parties to apply with offers for producing a baseline study on the project “Promotion and realization of the rights of Roma in Kosovo and Albania”.


In Kosovo and Albania Roma communities face social exclusion, which usually manifests itself in the form of life in poverty, segregation, difficult access to social services, discrimination and so on. In recent years, there have been improvements in the political efforts in both countries for a better social inclusion of Roma. Despite a difficult economic situation, poverty and social inequalities, participation of Roma communities in education has improved, whereas their participation in health and social services remains at low level. The same remains for employability. Policies at the different political levels were improved mainly in education sector, but there is a lack of implementation at all levels. At the same time, the need of proper coordination, budget commitment and awareness has grown.

The project is dedicated to contribute to further improve the situation of the Roma communities in Kosovo and Albania. To this end, a consortium of three experienced organizations, led by the long-term partner KFOS, implements an integrated multi-level approach that seeks to increase the scope of impact to the macro level as well through strategic networking.

The purpose of the baseline study is to provide the consortium with an analysis describing the situation prior to a development intervention, against which progress can be assessed or comparisons made.

Expected Deliverables

The contractee will deliver the following outputs in English and WORD-format:

Inception report including methodology, data collection tools, budget breakdown and detailed work plan to be discussed and agreed with KKS and the Project Holders in advance.

Draft baseline study report including key results. The draft report will be shared with KKS, KFOS, NVK and DS and relevant stakeholders for their inputs and will be validated in a workshop in the project areas.

Final baseline study report of maximum 30 pages (excl. annexes)according to the structure given in Annex I with baseline data as Annex (2 hard copies and 1 soft copy).
