Ghana SRHR Alliance Invites Job Applications
Terms of Reference for the Development of Campaign Messages for Advocacy under the Power to Youth Programme.
The Power to You(th) (PtY) Programme connects Ghana to 6 other implementing countries and seeks to reflect realities of youth and Adolescent Girls and Young Women (AGYW). It is the vision of the Power to You(th) Consortium that AGYW from underserved communities make informed choices, enjoy their sexuality, and are free from harmful practices in gender equitable and violence-free societies.
This is coined from the belief that change starts in the community and if young people under 35 years especially AGYW are meaningfully included in discussions and decisions, they will be able to claim their rights, address and challenge harmful gender norms and advocate for inclusive decisions making.
Thus, together we can achieve change with regards to Harmful practices, Sexual and Gender-Based Violence (SGBV) as well as unintended pregnancies. In Ghana, the programme is implemented in five regions – Northern, Savannah, North-East, Upper East and the Greater Accra Regions with the latter serving policy influencing purposes.
The activities of the programme is overseen by a Country Management Team (CMT) made up of 4 partners: Norsaac – the lead partner, Youth Advocates Ghana (YAG), Ghana SRHR Alliance for Young People (GH Alliance) and Songtaba.
Based on the tested approach of partner per pathway that enhances joint program team responsibility for project deliverables, partners are designated per pathway within the programme. The PtY programme in Ghana is focused on 3 key Issues including SGBV, Harmful practices (child marriage, “kayaye” and FGM) and Unintended pregnancies using an integration of strategies particularly: evidence generation, enhancing capacities, gender transformative approaches, strengthening agencies and deepening convening/learning.
