Consultancy to Develop Curriculum and Facilitation of Transformative Leadership for Women’s Rights Approach
Oxfam is a rights-based global development organization with more than 70 years of experience in more than 90 countries worldwide. Oxfam’s mission is to end the injustice of poverty and inequality through systemic change and the advancement of political, economic and social rights. In order to make pro-poor interventions sustainable and effective, Oxfam places the needs of women and girls at the heart of its vision of ‘a just world without poverty. To address the perceived normalcy of gender inequality, particularly sexual and gender-based violence, Oxfam and its partners seek to promote gender equality and women’s economic, cultural, social and political rights by ensuring that women and girls achieve increased control over their lives.
Oxfam in Ghana and Women in Law and Development in Africa, (WiLDAF) Ghana are collaborating on a four-year initiative across three countries—Mali, Liberia and Ghana to create an enabling environment for girls and women to know, claim and exercise their rights to end sexual and gender-based violence. The European Union (EU) financed project, known as Enough! Empowering women, girls, boys and men: Taking positive action to end Sexual and Gender Based Violence (SGBV), has a dual focus to 1) strengthen the institutional, technical and financial capacities of CSOs (including women’s associations and groups), and 2) challenge and change discriminatory social norms, attitudes and practices to prevent sexual gender-based violence (SGBV).
The Enough! Project involves both men and women in interventions that are gender transformative, feminist centered, and explicitly challenge social norms around gender, power and violence. The project further aims to promote active participation and leadership of women in Ghana, Mali and Liberia, including the poorest and most marginalised women. The expected result of this work is to build a cadre of leaders across the region who are engaged and personally motivated to tackle issues of gender-based violence within their organizations and communities. This will involve a holistic approach to building leadership through coaching, mentoring, peer-to-peer learning and sharing across organizations and countries for the women and men leading the third-party organizations working on the project.
As part of the process of the project’s objective to strengthen CSOs to challenge, change and support the transformation of discriminatory social norms, Oxfam seeks to support the development of feminist, holistic capacity building for leaders of local organizations working on the Enough project. This will include developing a methodology, curriculum and facilitation modules to support local civil society organizations – primarily women’s rights organizations – across the Enough project’s three countries of implementation on transformative leadership for women’s rights (TLWR).
In light of the above, Oxfam in Ghana seeks the services of a consultant to:
- Develop TLWR alternative methodology (including a French translation)
- Support rolling out of the transformative leadership for women’s rights methodology (peer-to-peer learning, in-country exchanges, mentoring etc.)
