Human rights based approach and gender mainstreaming consultant
As a country program, our footprint is wide reaching and we are expanding into a number of regions. We are currently based in Dar es Salaam, Iringa, Mbeya, Ruvuma, Lindi, Shinyanga and will be expanding into Simiyu, Dodoma, Morogoro, Coastal, Tanga and Mtwara.
Our programmes address current dimensions of horizontal inequality, gaps in well-being between clearly defined groups (for example, along lines of gender or ethnicity). Frequently, lack of respect for equal rights and difficulties in claiming entitlements, in particular for social groups subject to legal, political, social or cultural discrimination, is a major factor underlying poverty, associated with high levels of inequality and contributing to economic and social exclusion. Discrimination reflects socially-constructed identities and interests which, depending on the situation, operate along lines of gender, religion, class, ethnicity, nationality, age and other dimensions.
The 1948 Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR) states that ‘All human beings are born free and equal in dignity and rights’ (Article 1). The principles of equality and non-discrimination are fundamental to ensuring that every human being can realize his or her human rights, regardless of race, ethnicity, language, religion, gender or any other sources of distinction.
For continuous improvement of our current programs and with a view of increasing the observance of international human rights and embedding the Human Rights Based Approach (HRBA) and Gender Mainstreaming (GM) approaches in all our current and future programs we are seeking a HRBA & GM Consultant to review our current programme approaches (Plan, Design, Implementation, Evaluation), building the capacity of staff, volunteers and alumni on recent trends and approaches in access to SRHR, GBV and Education Services through expert training (HBRA, Results Based Management (RBM) and GM) and implement/embed sustainable HRBA & GM approaches in our programs and provide ongoing support via coaching/mentoring for the following 6 months.
Interested candidates are to submit a CV and Cover Letter, outlining their suitability for the role, timeframe and motivation for applying. Shortlisted applicants will be invited to interview and asked to submit 2–3 examples of similar pieces of work. Please send your application to firstname.lastname@example.org by 5pm (EAT) Wednesday 21st December 2016.
