SAT is an innovative organisation with a regional footprint contributing to improved systems for SRHR of girls, adolescents and women and has implemented extensive SRHR programmes at regional, national and local level of the ESA region for over 25 years. SATs ultimate goal under its current five-year strategy contributes to the improved health and well-being of girls, adolescents and young women in more equitable and inclusive systems for health with the aim of achieving gender equality.
 
We are looking for consultants for the following pieces of work:

Development of a social entrepreneurship model for the production of menstrual health products
 
A number of SAT partners are currently engaged in the production of reusable menstrual pads on a small scale. We are looking to up-scale these ventures in an attempt to increase the number of pads distributed as well as providing income for individuals / organisations.
 
The consultant will:

It is envisioned that this consultancy will be no longer than 10 days. Some regional travel may be required.
 
Development of Gender Transformative Mapping Tools
 
SAT currently has a Community Mapping Tool which is used by all partners. With our expansion into Districts we wish to develop a comprehensive tool that will enable key role players in District to map infrastructure, resources, and to understand the key issues facing girls, adolescents and all women in the area.
 
The consultant will:

  • Review the current Community Mapping Tool to ensure that it is gender transformative
  • Develop a draft gender transformative component within a larger emerging District Health Mapping tool
