Looking for Short Term Consultant:

1.      Background
voice is a newly established consortium between Oxfam Novib (Netherlands) and Hivos to manage a new Euro 50 million fund over five years (2016-2021) whereby the funding is made available by the Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs. Voice targets the most marginalised and discriminated groups in ten low- and lower-middle income countries in Africa and Asia.  These groups are, amongst others: 
  •          People with disabilities
  •          LGBTIQ
  •          Women facing exploitation, abuse and violence
  •          Age-discriminated vulnerable groups, notably the young and the elderly

It aims to strengthen the capacity of Civil Society Organisations and representatives of these groups to increase their (political) participation in mainstream development processes. Since the most marginalised and discriminated groups are often hard to reach via regular programming.

2.       A linking and learning programme that will nurture learning and innovation across countries and groups.  
The key words are Empower, Amplify and Influence.
The long term outcome of this programme is: Voice will strengthen the capacity for lobby and advocacy of civil society organisations and representatives of the most marginalised and discriminated people in order to empower these groups and to have their Voices heard and respected, using innovative ideas in the field of capacity strengthening and in the field of lobby and advocacy.

2.      Main objectives

1.       People with disabilities;
