STAR-Ghana Foundation Job Opportunity

STAR-Ghana Foundation

The foundation, STAR-Ghana has great an opportunity for Job. They have expressed interest in a Consultancy For The Co-creation of Project Proposals.

Position: Consultant

Brief Background to the AVID project

Statistics show that inequitable access to social services are exacerbated by several factors including gender, sex, ability (disability) and geographical location. For instance, the 2020 Education Fact Sheet by UNICEF shows that children belonging to the poorest quintile and those living in rural areas have particularly low completion rates at all levels of basic education. Again, the Education Fact Sheet clearly acknowledges that children with disabilities hardly progress through the education system, with a large proportion being over-age as a result of the lack of disability friendly facilities in basic and secondary schools. These gaps further alienate affected persons from control of public resources and ultimately deepens inequality and results in poverty.

It is in response to these gaps and the need to support emerging movements and associations who aim to advocate around social issues that the STAR Ghana Foundation is implementing the AVID project. Overall, the project seeks to improve access to quality public goods and services for underserved populations, including women, young people, persons living with disabilities and deprived communities. Underserved populations targeted under this project include persons with disabilities (PWD), young people, Fulani/Fulbes, rural women, peasant and small holder farmers and informal workers, such as market women.

The project has the following expected outcomes:

  • citizens’ organisations coalescing into social movements, issue-based alliances and coalitions around their salient issues
  • citizens’ movements and associations, particularly organisations of underserved populations demonstrate increased capacities to organize and sustain advocacy and engagements with duty bearers on their issues.

    Accordingly, the STAR-Ghana Foundation is currently inviting proposals from qualified organisations and groups to develop and implement projects and actions aimed at attaining the project goal. In line with this, eligible organisations are invited to submit concept notes in response to the call.

Specifically, STAR-Ghana Foundation’s interest will be working with organisations who are working on initiatives aimed at.

  • Strengthening and mobilising community voices in governance processes.
  • Nurturingthe emergence and strengthening of citizen-led movements around key priorities of constituencies.
  • Promoting the mainstreaming of active citizenship and local philanthropy as an approach to sustaining social change and development efforts.
  • Enabling a more joined-up approach to advocacy – both horizontally and vertically (encouraging connections among smaller CSOs or within a local area, as well as between communities and district, regional and national).

All Concept Notes will be assessed, and shortlisted concepts invited to participate in the next step of the grant process which will be a process of co-creation of the full proposal.

This EOI is to invite qualified Consultants to work with shortlisted applicants to develop full proposals using a co-creation approach.
