The Shabake Project was designed in the framework of the localization of aid agenda and the need to strengthen Lebanese NGO capacities so that local recipients can take the lead in responding to crisis. 

Funded by Agence Française de Développement (AFD) and the Danish Cooperation (Danida), the project aims to help local and international Lebanese non-governmental organizations (NGOs) become lasting, key players in mitigating and ameliorating the effects of the Syrian refugee crisis on Lebanon and the subsequent crises that have emerged in the current context in Lebanon, including the COVID-19 pandemic and the Beirut Port Explosions.
The NGO partners selected for the Shabake project are comprised of 7 local NGOs, each of whom will receive support in developing their organizational and technical capacities. They will also have an opportunity to put their new institutional changes into practice via a humanitarian project that reduce vulnerabilities. In addition, each NGO partner will be invited to meet and directly interact with donors, aid providers, and public authorities working in the development-aid ecosystem.  
To this end, the Shabake capacity-reinforcement project is divided in three main component parts: 
1.    Building on the strengths, assets, capacities, and skills of the local Lebanese NGOs 
2.    Having each NGO partner implement a crisis-response project to reduce vulnerabilities.
3.    Improving and/or integrating the participation of NGO partners in the development-aid ecosystem. 
The first component of the Shabake project aims at supporting select Shabake NGO partners in the development of their organizational and technical capacities through general and tailored support activities. The activities can range from basic trainings, to coaching, content and policy development, system set up, and advising. At the core of this effort is that they are participatory in nature, and that the NGO partners are deeply engaged with the experts assigned to develop the required deliverables.

Expertise France is seeking the services of a consultant(s) to support select Shabake NGO partners in setting renovation plans for their offices and workspaces. This consultancy is composed of 2 main tasks:

  1. Create an office renovation plan for 1 NGO partner
