The International Solidarity Foundation (ISF) is a Finnish development organization, founded in 1970. It has a vision to be an organization with a leading role in the empowerment of women and girls in East Africa by 2030. It envisions a world where women and girls are empowered to build their own future, their self-determination is fully realised, and their right to bodily integrity respected.
The goal of ISF’s 2022 – 2025 programme is to strengthen the bodily integrity and livelihood resilience of women and girls in Kenya, Somaliland, Puntland, and Ethiopia. It has five expected outcomes:
- Judicial and moral duty bearers take action to mitigate violence against women and girls
- Women and girls collectively claim their rights
- Women’s sphere of influence has expanded
- Women benefit from services and networks that support livelihood reform
- Improved capacity of farm systems to mitigate and adapt to climate change
The programme consists of development projects that are implemented by local partners. Partners are local civil society actors such as NGOs, community-based organizations, and women’s own businesses.
ISF’s operating model is designed to strengthen local civil societies by empowering women and their organizations, capacitating judicial and moral duty bearers, and strengthening local CSOs. Learning and innovation are at the heart of the model.
The Scope of Consultancy:
The International Solidarity Foundation Ethiopia is seeking experienced consultant to analyze the issue of violence against women and girls (VAWG) and gender norms in the targeted communities of Degahbour and Harrow in Somali Region, Ethiopia. The main objective of this analysis is to provide insight into the dynamics, triggers, and underlying causes of VAWG, including female genital mutilation/cutting and partner violence, in the lives of the beneficiaries and their communities. Additionally, the analysis aims to enhance understanding of the prevalence, severity, responsibility, and preventability of various forms of VAWG among community members (rights holders) and relevant duty bearers. Given that rigid gender norms and harmful stereotypes often contribute to VAWG, they will be an integral focus of this analysis.
How to Apply
The VAWG analysis is set to start 28th February 2024 for an estimated duration of 20-30 working days. The tender must be submitted by 21st February 2024. More information and instructions on how to submit the tender at Open vacancy: Consultant (Jijiga, Ethiopia) | Solidaarisuus
