FORWARD is inviting research agencies/ independent consultants to submit proposals for the end of programme evaluation of its Young Women’s Leadership Programme, TuWezeshe Akina Dada.
TuWezeshe Akina Dada, Swahili for ‘empowering our sisters’, is a feminist leadership programme seeking to inspire a generation of young African women to engage in activism against violence against women and girls (VAWG). It aims to increase young women’s visibility and capacity to shape major decisions about their rights and freedoms.
The programme is funded by Comic Relief’s Common Ground Initiative and since 2016 has been implemented in England, Wales, Scotland, Tanzania, Uganda, and Somaliland. It is led by the Foundation for Women’s Health Research and Development (FORWARD) and its consortium partners: Akina Mama wa Afrika (AMwA) in Uganda, the Sub-Sahara Advisory Panel (SSAP) in Wales and Scotland, and the Children’s Dignity Forum (CDF) in Tanzania.
The objectives of the end of programme evaluation are to:
- Evaluate the extent to which the TuWezeshe programme proposed outcomes were achieved and identify key areas that were critical for obtaining these outcomes.
- Evaluate the effectiveness and relevance of the project’s set‐up, approach, and training tools, and identify to what extent these contributed to the delivery of the project’s outcomes.
- Assess the level of sustainability of the TuWezeshe project particularly with regard to the long-term impact on young women’s leadership capacity and the capacity of implementing partners.
- Provide actionable and practical recommendations on future programme design and implementation.
