The Tony Elumelu Foundation is calling for consultants to provide third-party Monitoring, Business Assessment, and Programme Impact Evaluation for the Tony Elumelu Foundation Entrepreneurs programme.
The Tony Elumelu Foundation is the leading philanthropy empowering a new generation of African entrepreneurs that is driving poverty eradication, catalyzing job creation, and ensuring women’s economic inclusion in all 54 African countries.
Since the launch of the TEF Entrepreneurship Programme in 2015, the Foundation has trained over 1.5 million young Africans on its digital hub, TEFConnect, and disbursed nearly USD$100 million in direct funding to 18,000 African women and men, who have collectively created over 400,000 direct and indirect jobs. The Foundation’s mission is rooted in Africapitalism, which positions the private sector, and most importantly entrepreneurs, as the catalyst for the social and economic development of the African continent.
The impact of the Tony Elumelu Foundation has been very visible and has led to the creation of trailblazing beneficiaries with remarkably interesting success stories. However, as these numbers continue to rise, it has become increasingly important to move beyond remote monitoring to explore more robust monitoring systems that combine our remote monitoring effort and an on-the-ground extensive third-party monitoring network. Third-party monitoring would allow for real-time follow-up of entrepreneurs from seed granting through fund utilization to growth. Critical to data quality is also the objectivity of feedback from independent monitors to ensure constant learning and improved programme quality.
