Job description: Womankind Worldwide is a global womens rights organisation working in partnership with womens rights movements and organisations to transform the lives of women and girls. We strengthen and support womens movements in our focus countries in Africa and Asia, and take collective action at regional and global levels, to ensure womens voices are heard, their rights are realised, and their lives are free from violence. Womankind is in the inception phase of a new 5-year multi-partner, multi-country, policy and advocacy programme - Advancing Womens Engagement: Strengthening Opportunities to Mobilise for Equality (AWESOME). AWESOME is funded by the Netherlands government under Power of Women funding framework and will focus on strengthening womens movements in Ethiopia, Kenya and Uganda to be more representative of diverse groups of women, including women with disabilities, resulting in a stronger collective voice to challenge social norms and influence policies and key decisions affecting them. The AWESOME programme focuses on two themes including Sexual and Gender Based Violence (SGBV) and Womens Participation and Leadership (WPL) including political leadership. It works at three levels: self- to provide safe spaces for Womens Rights Organisations (WROs) including those led by women with disabilities, activists and young women to come together to increase collaboration and solidarity society - to ensure greater willingness and support to challenge harmful gender norms and attitudes and formal institutions - to improve the policy and legal framework for the realisation of womens rights. We will implement the AWESOME programme as a consortium of seven organisations including Womankind as the lead organisation.

Partners implementing the project in the three focus countries are:
