The UN Women Ethiopia Country Office (ECO) has launched a programme to strengthen institutional capacity and commitment of government institutions in putting in place effective coordination mechanisms and policy frameworks on prevention and response to violence against women and girls including harmful traditional practices (VAWG/HTP).
The project will build on initiatives supported by UN Women thus far and ensure the desired results are achieved in terms of coordination and policy development on VAWG/HTP. The impact of the project will be to effectively mitigate, prevent, and respond to VAWG/HTP.
The ECO is looking to partner with a civil society organization that has the required capacity, good reputation among government sectors, and presence in all operation areas to help implement the project.
The objective of this project is to strengthen institutional capacity and commitment of government institutions in putting in place effective coordination mechanisms and policy frameworks on prevention and response to VAWG/HTPS.
The specific objectives of the project are to:
- Ensure full functionality of existing and newly established coordination mechanisms in prevention and response to VAWG/HTP
- Ensure the full implementation of the national strategy on VAWC and National Roadmap on CM and FGM
- Ensure coordination mechanises on prevention and response to VAWG and HTP are established and strengthened in selected regions through supporting MOJ, MOWSA and regional bureaus
- Increase the commitment and political will of policy makers to adopt comprehensive AntiGBV Policy and regional Family law in Afar and Somali regions through conducting intensive advocacy and capacity building
- The budget range for this proposal should be [35,000 -50,000].
- The project period is expected to run from April to August 2022 subject to amendment.
The CSO needs to have:
- Legally constituted organization with a valid registration in Ethiopia
- Good reputation and trust among government sectors
- High understanding of national and international tools, guidelines, and policies on VAWG/HTPS
- Experience working with government sectors particularly MOWSA and MOJ
- Experience in conducting advocacy on adoption and implementation of laws and policies that promote Equality/VAWG/HTP
- Experience in coordinating and liaising with government agencies and participation in existing coordination mechanisms such as NCB and National Alliance on CM and FGM
- Presence in regions such as Afar, Amhara, Oromia and Somali is an asset
- A team of dedicated, qualified, and skilled professionals to carry out their critical role in implementing the project
