DFID: AAWAZ II Pakistan – Inclusion, Accountability and Reducing Modern Slavery

Deadline: 4 June 2018

The UK’s Department for International Development (DFID) is currently inviting applicants for its AAWAZ II Pakistan – Inclusion, Accountability and Reducing Modern Slavery programme to work with government and local communities to promote the rights of children, women, youth, religious minorities and excluded groups to strengthen their control over their own development.

The programme has a particular focus on the issues of modern slavery, to which marginalised groups are extremely vulnerable. The programme aims to reach 7 million beneficiaries across the provinces of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa and Punjab. The existing programme (AAWAZ) has worked successfully with communities over the past 6 years, to increase the voice, choice and control of women, religious minorities and youth. To build on the significant change already achieved, they have designed a successor programme, AAWAZ II, which aims to deepen their impact in this area.

Pillars

The overarching programme will deliver 4 key pillars with pillars 2 and 3 included in this procurement initiative as follows:-

  • Pillar 2, Community dialogue, awareness and voice: Continuing funding and capacity development for 450 AAWAZ Aagahi Centres (AACs) to provide a safe space for marginalised members of the community to access state services and to provide information on rights, including on issues such as bonded labour and forced marriage.
    • Convening of community fora (including continuing to support existing AAWAZ District Fora and AAWAZ Provincial Fora) in order for communities to raise demands for services and work together to address social issues such as child labour, early and forced marriage and inter-faith harmony.
  • Pillar 3, Conflict prevention: Using the network of AAWAZ Aagahi Centres, pre-empting community conflict by facilitating sessions/events for communities to come together to identify and address potential triggers of conflict and promote tolerance, particularly towards religious minorities.

How to Apply

Interested applicants must apply using DFID supplier portal.
