The International Planned Parenthood Federation Africa Region (IPPFAR) is one of the leading sexual and reproductive health and rights (SRHR) service delivery organizations in Africa, and a leading sexual and reproductive health and rights advocacy voice in the region through its 40 Member Associations and Collaborative Partners in 40 Sub-Saharan countries.
In 2022, IPPF received funding from the French Development Agency (AFD) to implement the “Feminist Opportunity Now” project. With a total budget of €14 million over 4 years, this project will strengthen feminist movements in 9 countries (Columbia, Mexico in Latin America; Burkina Faso, Ethiopia, Cote d’Ivoire, Guinea, and Kenya in Africa; and Bangladesh and Sri Lanka in Asia). Its objective is to build the capacity of women's movements, via sub-grants to feminist organisations, with a particular effort to reach small, often non-registered, organisations to address and respond to gender-based violence locally.
In the scope of the FON project, IPPF Africa Regional Office (IPPF ARO) is seeking an individual to fill the position of “Monitoring, Evaluation and Learning Advisor”. The Monitoring, Evaluation and Learning (MEL) Advisor will be expected to provide strategic oversight and guidance on all aspects of MEL for FON implementation in the 10 project countries: Kenya, Ethiopia, Niger, Burkina Faso, Cote d’Ivoire, Guinea, Mexico, Colombia, Bangladesh and Sri Lanka.
The successful candidate will have a strong feminist perspective on MEL, as well as a non-extractive, decolonial, and participatory approach. Strong focus on accessibility and enabling methodologies will be central to the work. They will be able to draw from creative and participatory methodologies, including using new technologies, to ensure the project team receives appropriate guidance to continuously improve its work, identify in a timely manner areas that need more attention, and to ensure mutual learning among all engaged actors.
The MEL Advisor will be responsible for the coordination and facilitation of the co-creation of MEL processes, tools and products among consortium partners, strategic partners, and subgrantees. As the partners are working across time zones and in diverse languages (English, French, and Spanish) this would include overall coordination oversight.
Interested individuals should submit an application form in the IPPFARO CV form and a 1-page cover letter to: [email protected] with the job position you are applying for as the subject of the email by 30 September 2023. Please note that IPPFAR will not consider applications that are not done in the requested format.
