TERMS OF REFERENCE: CONSULTANCY SSCC Advocacy Trainer (Local Consultant)

Overall purpose of consultancy:
The consultant will ideally be based in Juba, South Sudan, with travel to locations across South Sudan. The consultant will work with the South Sudan Council of Churches to develop a tailored advocacy skills toolkit and training programme as part of the Action Plan for Peace framework, and deliver training in strategic locations across South Sudan.

The South Sudan Council of Churches is an ecumenical body comprised of seven member churches and associate churches in South Sudan with a strong legacy of peacebuilding, reconciliation and advocacy. The SSCC provides a platform to enhance the spirit of ecumenical cooperation towards collective action for peace. Reconciliation, healing and peacebuilding are at the core of what the SSCC stands for, building on the instrumental role of the churches throughout years of war, for example as the architects of the ‘people to people’ peace process in Sudan. Through its regional offices, community-level Inter-Church Committees and the hundreds of local churches within its membership, the South Sudan Council of Churches reaches millions of South Sudanese; an unequalled network of people devoted to peace.
The APP identifies four areas of action (Advocacy, Neutral Forums and Reconciliation and institutional capacity strengthening) that combines facilitating dialogue, two-way advocacy, and reconciliation to contribute to sustainable long-term peace in South Sudan. Formally launched in August 2015, it signifies an approach to ending violence in South Sudan which builds on grassroots engagement and decades of experience.
The consultant will provide technical support to the Council staff, working closely with Christian Aid.
