Introduction

Save the Children believes every child deserves a future. In North West Balkans and around the world, we work every day to give children a healthy start in life, the opportunity to learn and protection from harm. When crisis strikes and children are most vulnerable, we are always among the first to respond and the last to leave. We ensure children’s unique needs are met and their voices are heard.  We deliver lasting results for millions of children, including those hardest to reach. We do whatever it takes for children – every day and in times of crisis – transforming their lives and the future we share.

Background and Rationale

In 2016 SCiNWB launched the project Enhancing Social Inclusion - Equity and Quality of Education to Support Thriving of Children in NWB, with its specific Outcome 2 component that targets strengthening inclusion of children with disabilities in regular education. As part of the Project, SCiNWB supported the development of the Strategy for Inclusion of Children with Disabilities in Education with 7-year Action Plan in Tuzla Canton, which is adopted by the Cantonal Assembly in March 2018.

One of the main actions of the Strategy is establishment of Centers for Development of Inclusive Practices (CDIPs)  in Tuzla Canton, which aims to standardize and improve the support to children with disabilities and their families, by changing the current medical approach to disability to comprehensive and contemporary bio-psycho-social model of inclusion.

The Ministry of Education in Tuzla Canton identified 2 most optimum locations for establishment of first CDIPs (out of the planned 6 by the Strategy) in municipalities Gradačac (Elementary school Mehmed beg Kapetanović Ljubušak) and Banovići (Elementary school Banovići). Reconstruction and adaptation needs assessment was conducted in September 2017 and updated in June 2018 (Annex I). Further, concept/schematic design project was developed (Annex II).

In order to assess the capacities of the allocated premises, it is needed to undergo the development of the conceptual design of the CDIPs, which is the subject of this Terms of References (ToR).
