Restless Development Uganda is the leading youth-led development agency in Uganda. Our mission is to place young people at the forefront of change and development. We have supported youth-led programming in Uganda for over 15 years. Our focus areas are youth civic participation, youth livelihoods and youth sexual and reproductive health. We are currently supporting youth-led interventions in the Northern, Eastern and Central Uganda.
“The Big Idea” programme is part of a global initiative being led by Restless Development to empower young people to use data and information to monitor the progress of the new Sustainable Development Agenda. The Big Idea is being piloted in a number of countries, including Uganda, Tanzania, Ghana and Nepal. In Uganda, The Big Idea project initially supports young people in the districts of Nwoya, Gulu, Moroto and Napak to become active citizens by analysing, validating and using UNICEF U-report data to engage with and hold their leaders to account, in an effort to address community development challenges and to improve the relevance and effectiveness of youth policies and programmes.
With support from UNICEF Uganda, Restless Development Uganda is working with ten ‘Youth Researchers’ per district in the four districts of Acholi and Karamoja to improve their leadership and life skills as well as increase their technical knowledge on civic issues, policy, advocacy and research so that they are better prepared to actively engage with their leaders.
In order to equip the young researchers with knowledge and skills to engage with their leaders, and to establish a cohesive approach to social accountability, Restless Development is seeking support of a consultant to produce a social accountability and research curriculum manuals. The consultant will develop participant’s handbook and run a short (2 day) training to the programme team to familiarise them with the curriculum.
