VSO Ethiopia Consultancy SRH Intersectional Context Analysis 134 views0 applications


The ‘Make Way programme’  is a five-year programme (2021-2025), implemented by a consortium consisting of Akina Mama wa Afrika, The Circle of Concerned African Women Theologians, Forum for African Women Educationalists, Liliane Foundation, VSO Netherlands, with Wemos as lead, in partnership with the Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs. It aims to break down barriers to Sexual and Reproductive Health (SRH) by promoting a new way of considering discrimination through an intersectional lens. The Make Way programme uses an intersectional approach to acknowledge systemic discrimination due to overlapping aspects of a person’s identity (gender, race, economic status, immigration status, national origin, etc) and the subsequent impact on access to SRH services.

The Make Way programme is implemented in Ethiopia, Kenya, Rwanda, Uganda, and Zambia, the ( Eastern and Southern) African region and at the global level. In Ethiopia, the consortium consists of VSO Ethiopia, FAWE Ethiopia and Ipas (partner of Liliane Foundation).

On behalf of the Make Way consortium, VSO wishes to conduct a social exclusion, gender and political economy analysis in order to establish the power imbalances that exist in different contexts. This understanding in turn helps VSO to design appropriate interventions that address the power imbalances through empowering those affected by inequalities, exclusion and marginalisation.

The analysis will involve reflecting on and mapping the systems of social exclusion and gender inequality and being clear about how the two relate to marginalization and vulnerability. It is also important to understand the context in which the Make Way programme operates, therefore this a nalysis will include examining how political, economic, social and cultural power are distributed, identification of the decisive factors, influential actors and how to engage them to initiate change in improving access and provision of services.

Objectives of the Analysis:

  1. Identify and analyse the multiple identities and how these affect access to and uptake of SRH services for particularly the marginalized/minoritized youth.
  2. Understand and articulate the social, cultural, religion/belief, political, economic, and institutional drivers of this exclusion and why marginalized young people are prevented from realizing their sexual and reproductive health.
  3. Identify enablers and obstacles of meaningful youth engagement in inclusive access to SRH among minoritized youth.
  4. Identify health financing frameworks and the key power relations and influences, dynamics and trends in health systems, structures and processes related to SRH for minoritized y outh in Ethiopia? What are existing opportunities in Ethiopia for Make Way?

Interested parties are requested to apply online and upload your expression of interest, which should include the following as part of the same document. (note: the system only allows uploading of one document!)

  1. Company/individual profile or CV including 2 references (clients) and 2 samples of similar work recently done
  2. Motivation, track record & qualifications for the assignment
  3. A comprehensive proposal outlining the proposed methodologies and rationale, choice and design of data collection tools, timelines, roles and responsibilities of personnel involved
  4. Sign language capabilities during the data collection process
  5. Financial proposal (daily fee, travel costs, snacks for participants, etc) with clear budget lines

VSO is the world’s leading independent international development organisation that works through volunteers to fight poverty in developing countries. VSO's high-impact approach involves bringing people together to share skills, build capabilities, promote international understanding and action, and change lives to make the world a fairer place for all

Voluntary Service Overseas (VSO) began in 1958 when Alec and Moira Dickson recruited and sent 16 British volunteers overseas in response to a letter from the Bishop of Portsmouth asking for people to teach English in Borneo.

Much has changed since then. VSO has engaged over 43,000 volunteers to work on international development programmes in more than 120 countries.

We’ve gone from being a UK charity to an international one. In 2013/2014 alone, our volunteers trained over 174,000 people, and delivered services that had an impact on the lives of almost 2 million.

Today, VSO is a truly global organisation. We recruit skilled volunteers from all over the world, and from all sectors of society, including business leaders, parliamentarians and young people.

Currently, over 30% of our people come from within the country of their placement. We also send increasing numbers of people from one developing country to another.

We're always looking for new ways to turn human energy and ingenuity into lasting change. We still send professionals to share their skills with their local counterparts, but we’ve embraced a range of methods that allow us to provide whatever kind of help is needed most, including promoting international understanding and action, knowledge sharing and youth exchanges.
