External Evaluation of Global Fund for Women’s Adolescent Girls’ Rights Initiative
At Global Fund for Women, we envision a world where movements for gender justice have transformed power and privilege for a few into equity and equality for all. We fund bold, ambitious, and expansive gender justice movements to create meaningful change that will last beyond our lifetimes.
Adolescent Girls’ Rights Program
Global Fund for Women’s Adolescent Girls’ Rights Initiative, launched in 2018, seeks to deepen our ability to foster movement building among adolescent girls and their allies, allowing for funding of girl- and young women (including cis, trans, and gender non-conforming youth)- led and -centered grassroots organizations based in Francophone and Lusophone Sub-Saharan Africa, the Middle East and North Africa, and the Caribbean. This initiative also supports a learning cohort comprised of national women’s funds in the Asia Pacific, Europe and Central Asia, and Latin America regions to collaborate and share experiences to strengthen the work with and for adolescent girls, to resource their organizing and movements.
To date, Global Fund for Women has awarded $2,677,000 USD to 51 girl-centered organizations in 37 countries. Of these, 28 speak English, 13 speak French, 6 speak Spanish, and 4 speak Russian. In January 2020, Global Fund for Women established a global, multi-lingual 12-member Adolescent Girls Advisory Council (AGAC) which advises Global Fund for Women’s work and collaborates with staff to pilot participatory grantmaking with a focus on supporting girl-led organizations.
Global Fund for Women is seeking a consultant or a consultant team to design and implement a feminist external evaluation of our Adolescent Girls' Rights Initiative.
