Global Fund-South Africa Call for Proposals: Young Women & Girls Economic Strengthening Programme

Deadline: 31 October 2017

NACOSA, on behalf of four PRs (Kheth’Impilo, Soul City Institute, KZN Treasury and NACOSA) have announced a Call for Proposals for Young Women & Girls Economic Strengthening Programme. The Global Fund has selected five Principal Recipients (PRs) in South Africa to implement a Young Women and Girls (YW&G) Programme, which includes an Economic Strengthening component.

The YW&G Programme seeks to provide socio-economic development support and opportunities to young women, between ages of 19 and 24, to enable them to become economically active and independent citizens, thereby lowering the degree of vulnerability of them contracting and/or living with HIV.

Project management will include monthly reports over the implementation period, i.e. 1 January – 31 December 2018 and a project closeout report at the end of the project closeout period, i.e. 1 January – 31 March 2019.

Programme Components

The programme consists of six components, namely:

  • Recruitment of young women to actively participate in RISE clubs
  • Standardised assessments to stream young women into one or more of four streams and a standard package comprising personal development and job readiness
  • Basic literacy, numeracy and communication skills stream
  • Employment stream
  • Entrepreneurship / enterprise development stream
  • Bursary stream

How to Apply

Proposals must be submitted via email at the address given on the website.
