Terms of Reference - Gender Consultant

Fri, 23 Oct 2020 15:28:05 +0000

Country: Kenya
Organization: Veterinarians Without Borders Canada
Closing date: 20 Nov 2020

Project Title

Volunteers Engaged In Gender Responsive Technical Solutions (VETS)

Implementing Partners

VWB/VSF Canada

Local partners: Meru Dairy and Wakulima



1. Overview

Veterinarians without Borders/ Vétérinaires sans frontières – Canada (VWB/VSF) is a charitable, humanitarian organization whose mission is to work for, and with, those in need to foster the health of animals, people, and the environments that sustain us. More information about the organization can be found at

VWB/VSF sends many Canadian volunteers overseas to work with partners help create integrated animal health systems. The Canadian volunteers include professors of veterinary medicine, veterinarians, animal nutritionists, rural development specialists, food safety specialists, horticulturalists, community health workers, and gender specialists. While universities, community organizations—even government agricultural extension workers benefit from this initiative, the primary focus is on improving the lives of small-scale livestock producers.**

VWB/VSF is presently seeking a Gender Consultant to launch the beginning of the Project Implementation Plan (PIP) of the VETS Project. The successful candidate will lead a gender assessment and gender action plan with our two local partners in Kenya (Meru Dairy Co-operative Union LTD and Wakulima Dairy). The aim of the Gender Consultant is to establish sustainable mechanisms in collaboration with our two local partners in Kenya (Meru Dairy Co-operative Union LTD and Wakulima Dairy) and build capacity in gender equality to lead the gender assessment and gender action plan. Mentoring and coaching local staff is requested.

2. Context and Project Rationale

In developing countries, more than 90% of food animals are raised by small and subsistence farmers. These small-scale livestock producers, the majority of whom are women, have very limited access to animal health services and remain extremely vulnerable as they lack the necessary support to prevent, or cure diseases in their livestock, leading to a loss of their livelihoods and keeping them in the cycle of poverty. The agricultural sector is underperforming in part because women, who are often a crucial resource in agriculture and the rural economy, face constraints that reduce their productivity. Although women comprise about 43 percent of the agricultural labor force globally and in developing countries, one in three has no control over major household purchases such as livestock, limiting their influence over decision-making and financial planning. A number of country-specific gender equality challenges are but not limited to: competing government priorities, socio-cultural traditional beliefs; limited access to land and other productive resources for agriculture and livestock. Consequently, the social responsibilities of women are often restricted to unpaid work, and women are often responsible for family decisions with respect to household expenses. Women and girls in rural households carry out at least two and a half times more unpaid household work than men.

The Volunteers Engaged In Gender Responsive Technical Solutions (VETS) Project will directly improve the economic and social well-being of the poorest, most marginalized people, particularly women and girls, in six countries in Africa and Asia, through support to animal, human and environmental health (One Health) initiatives. The Project will use the skills of Canadian volunteers to support smallholder farmers, primarily women, to reduce poverty by improving family income and nutrition principally through improved production of livestock and crops. By working with local women’s organizations and associations, as well as local partners that work with and support the identified women’s groups, the Project will also help women assume greater leadership and control over their livelihoods. The Project is built around the One Health (OH) concept which recognizes that the health of people, animals and the natural environment are interconnected. It promotes the production of more and better food and increased incomes from livestock, all the while promoting land rehabilitation and conservation for sustainable development. Between 2020 and 2027, 190 Canadian volunteers will work with ten selected country partners in Cambodia, Ghana, Kenya, Laos, Senegal and Vietnam to help create integrated animal health systems that benefit small scale farmers.

The VETS Project will contribute to the Ultimate Outcome of Improved economic and social well-being of the poorest, most marginalized people, particularly women and girls, in 6 countries in Africa and Asia, through animal, human and environmental health (One Health) contributing to the SDGs. As indicated by the Intermediate Outcomes, the primary resources involved are the expertise and time of Canadian volunteers who will provide technical assistance to local partners and target communities to advance gender equality, through One Health programming and organizational systems, processes and policies. Upon return from their placements, Canadian volunteers will build and sustain Canadian capacity to help internationally through the education they gain through their own participation, and by encouraging other Canadians to support international development efforts.

To achieve the Immediate Outcomes, project staff and Canadian volunteers will build partnerships with local organizations and undertake capacity and needs assessment activities to identify priorities for capacity development. Canadian volunteers will undertake a range of technical assistance activities, including delivering formal training workshops, providing informal mentoring, on-the-job accompaniment and skills modeling designed to reduce the prevalence of disease among livestock, and improve the capacity of partners to deal successfully with animal disease and production issues. Knowledge-sharing activities will be supported by the project to allow partners to undertake research and come together to exchange good practice and support the development of innovative policy for gender equality and environmentally sustainable/climate-resilient solutions. Canadian volunteers will also help strengthen the organizational systems, practices and policies needed to sustain strong programming in animal health. Lastly, Canadian volunteers and local gender consultants will support partners and communities to identify the gender equality barriers facing small-scale farmers and design locally-relevant action plans to overcome these gender barriers. During and after their missions, volunteers will communicate with other Canadians – primarily people with an interest in livestock and animal health – illustrating the value of the work through social media, public speaking, articles for various publications, and media interviews.

Internews est une organisation de développement des médias qui travaille dans le monde entier pour donner aux gens les moyens d'obtenir des nouvelles et des informations fiables et de qualité dont ils ont besoin pour prendre des décisions en connaissance de cause, participer à la vie de leur communauté et demander des comptes. Nous cherchons à réaliser le potentiel d'un monde connecté numériquement : un monde dans lequel les informations fondées sur des preuves font progresser l'humanité, permettent de larges opportunités et la redevabilité, et alimentent un débat civique dynamique.

En travaillant avec des partenaires locaux en RDC dans le cadre du PROJET MEDIAS2I, nous prévoyons de mener une série d'ateliers/formations pour 10 partenaires (8 médias en ligne ; 2 radios) afin de renforcer les opérations commerciales vers l'objectif global de durabilité de l'indépendance des médias en RDC.


Internews cherche à engager un EXPERT EN DÉVELOPPEMENT DES MÉDIAS EN LIGNE pour former des partenaires médiatiques sélectionnés pendant 60 jours au total sur une durée de deux ans, soit de Novembre 2020 à Octobre 2022. Le formateur aidera les médias sélectionnés à développer et à déployer des stratégies commerciales et de gestion efficaces grâce à des ateliers virtuels (en année 1) et en personne (an année 2 suivant l’évolution du Covid-19), une assistance technique, un encadrement professionnel et un soutien consultatif.

Vous êtes un candidat idéal pour ce poste si vous avez :
