TOR for Consultant/Service Provider-Interpreters for Ghana MTP sessions

The African Cashew Alliance (ACA) has been working on developing learning solutions for the industry.  As such we have developed several eLearning and in-class training programs, which are being rolled out. We have also fully taken over the Master Training Program (MTP) from the Market-Oriented Value Chains for Jobs & Growth in the ECOWAS Region (MOVE/GIZ) to enable us to consolidate the learning programs as well as enhance the content. 14 editions have been held already in which 1,036 experts have been trained between 2014 and 2022. To prepare for and deliver the 15th Edition and 16th Edition in 2022 and 2023, the ACA  is seeking of qualified Interpreters to provide French- English- French interpretation services for training sessions 1 and 2 of editions 15 and 16. In total 4 separate training sessions will be held on different dates which will take place in Ghana.

The aims of the MTP are: 

  • Create a pool of qualified experts on the cashew value chain in West African countries (Benin, Burkina Faso, Côte d'Ivoire and Ghana, also reaching out to other West-African countries - e.g.  Nigeria, Senegal, Sierra Leone, Togo, and Mali); and
  • Reach out to East African countries;
  • Facilitate the regional exchange of knowledge, learning and innovation.
