Women’s Voice Leadership – Project Monitor (1 Year Renewable)
Canada seeks to hire a Project Monitor (Consultant) for the Women’s Voice & Leadership Project in Nigeria. The Monitor should specialize in gender equality, participatory or feminist monitoring and evaluation, and working with women’s rights organizations for the purpose of monitoring project(s).
The Women’s Voice and Leadership (WVL) Project, Nigeria is aimed at tackling the barriers to gender equality and supporting the empowerment of women and girls through provision of technical and financial resources to local feminist/women’s rights organizations that are advancing the rights of women and girls and championing gender equality. The project is part of Canada’s Women’s Voice & Leadership Program which supports project-level monitoring of local and regional women’s organizations and networks that are working to promote women’s rights, and advance women’s empowerment and gender equality in developing countries. This is done by supporting activities, building institutional capacity, and promoting network and alliance-building as women’s rights and feminist organizations are critical agents of change. The program also responds to the significant, globally recognized gap in funding and support to women’s rights organizations and movements around the world.
This project is expected to directly benefit 100 local women’s rights organizations and their extended networks in 6 states across Nigeria. The project also aims to support the implementation of innovative ideas and approaches led by local women’s rights organizations.
