1. SNV

SNV Netherlands Development Organisation is a not-for-profit international
development organization founded in the Netherlands nearly 50 years ago. It
has built a long-term, local presence in 38 of the poorest countries in
Asia, Africa and Latin America working with local partners to equip
communities, businesses and organizations with the tools, knowledge and
connections they need to increase their incomes and gain access to basic
services - empowering them to break the cycle of poverty and guide their own
development. Using market based approaches, SNV is committed to reducing
poverty by catalysing environmentally sustainable solutions for the poor in
agriculture, energy, water & sanitation, and climate change.

2. The Supporting STBM in Lampung Rural Sanitation & Hygiene Programme

By the end of 2015, still 51 million Indonesians practiced open defecation
(JMP, 2015). In that same year alone, more than 60.000 Indonesian children
died from poor sanitation related diseases, while stunting, another poor
sanitation related condition, afflicted 37% of children under 5, limiting
their physical and intellectual development for life (UNICEF, 2015). WSP
(2013) research revealed that Indonesia's poor sanitation conditions
annually cost the country 2.3% of its GDP.

To address the sanitation challenge, Indonesia's National Government
developed a specific programme promoting sanitation access country wide, the
Community Based Total Sanitation Programme, STBM in Indonesian. The STBM
programme gained additional traction with Presidential Decree (185/14) on
Sanitation Provision Acceleration that declared universal access to
sanitation as a national target to be met by 2019, eleven years ahead of the
Sustainable Development Goals deadline.

The STBM programme is a non-subsidised, behaviour change driven, community
wide sanitation approach. It promotes community-wide achievement of five
hygiene behaviours (pillars): (1) Stop open defecation, (2) Hand washing
with soap, (3) Safe handling of drinking water and food, (4) Safe management
of solid waste, (5) Safe management of domestic liquid waste.

SNV, in partnership with The Netherlands Ministry of Foreign Trade and
Development Cooperation, is supporting the Local Governments of three
Districts in the Lampung Province (Lampung Selatan, Pringsewu and Tanggamus)
to implement the STBM programme at scale and with quality. The "Supporting
STBM in Lampung Province" is focus on strengthening the capacities of local
stakeholders, including Government agencies, private sector and local CSOs
in areas such as steering of demand creation activities, development of a
sanitation market, testing of technological options for specific groups,
integration of school sanitation and proper phasing of behavioural change
communication, also for Hand Washing with Soap.

Hand Washing with Soap (HWWS) at critical times is arguably one of the most
complex behavior change challenges. According to SNV's baseline data for the
three project locations (SNV, 2014), in 2014 only 12% of the population
practiced HWWS. Though the Supporting STBM in Lampung programme was able to
increase that percentage to 35% in 2016, the programme is currently seeking
to increase the achievement to at least 50%. Out of the many strategies that
can be used to encourage HWWS, mobilizing local cultural narratives and
artistic traditions is one of the most effective and sustainable ones.

To support the delivery of the HHWS promotion component of the STBM in
Lampung programme, SNV is looking for a short term consultant, experienced
in social transformation through art and sanitation and hygiene issues.
