Call for the Expression of Interest for the Printing of a Parenting Work Book

1.0 Introduction:

Parenting in Africa Network (PAN) is a Pan-African Network of organizations, individuals and institutions keen to promote ‘skilful’ parenting practices in Africa for the overall wellbeing of children and their families. The network creates and facilitates interactive platforms for learning, sharing and also indulges in advocacy of various topical issues surrounding parenting. To date, PAN has successfully managed to build and disseminate knowledge on various aspects of parenting in Africa.

1.1 Background

The family forms the most important structure where children are shaped and prepared to face the external world. As noted in the declarations of the 27th sessions of the UN General Assembly; ‘The primary responsibility for the protection, upbringing and development of children rests with the family.1 Thus, parenting is a very important ingredient in molding behaviour and imparting social skills during the formative years, necessary in instilling morals, self-discipline and responsibilities in children.

In light of the above, PAN in 2014 developed a parenting guideline that could be adopted to context. The guideline addressed nine topics namely: Parenting Skills, Child Protection, Child Development, Father Involvement in Parenting, Communication Skills, Discipline and Character formation, Involving Children in Decision Making, Resolving conflicts in families and life Skills.

PAN is in the process of developing a Skilful Parenting Work Book from the existing parenting guideline and would therefore like to hire a reliable printing firm.
