Call for consultant to develop Advocacy and Communications Strategy for Generation G SA programme

Overview

The Generation G partnership strives towards the creation of gender-just and violence-free societies with and for young people in their full diversity. By gender justice, we mean a fair, equitable world for all individuals regardless of their gender. We aim to contribute to this change in Indonesia, Jordan, Lebanon, Morocco, Rwanda, South Africa and Uganda with regional and global-level support for these in-country changes. The Generation G partnership is a collaboration of partners in the seven countries with a global consortium consisting of Rutgers (lead), ABAAD, Promundo and Sonke Gender Justice.

The Generation G partnership raises public support, advocates for improved policies and laws, and strengthens civil society, focusing specifically on gender-based violence, the unequal division of care and women’s lack of access to civic space, as a way to contribute to gender justice. As such, the Generation G partnership directly contributes to SDG5, SDG16, and the Ministry’s policy on women’s rights and gender equality. The partnership addresses three key interrelated challenges: gender-based violence, the unequal division of care and women’s lack of access to civic space.

As youth (15-32) are our key actors and key impact group, they are actively included in decision-making processes, as well as the design and implementation of key strategies. Youth are at the heart of this partnership, as catalysts for systemic change and key target group. We make a special effort to amplify voices of youth, particularly those who are often excluded because of their age, gender, gender identity/expression, sexual orientation, ethnicity, or socioeconomic status.
