 Background and context

 About RWAMREC

Rwanda Men’s Resource Centre (RWAMREC) is a non-government organization striving to achieve gender equality through the promotion of positive masculinities and male engagement approaches in preventing gender-based violence in Rwanda. RWAMREC works in the following 4 areas: Community empowerment, building Healthy Families, Promotion of Gender Justice, and Youth Mentorship. RWAMREC operates in 24 districts of Rwanda to promote gender equality and to fight against sexual and gender-based violence.

About Generation Gender (GenG) Rwanda Program

Generation G Rwanda is a coalition led by RWAMREC that brings together three NGOs including the Rwanda Men’s Resource Centre (RWAMREC), Health Development Initiative (HDI), and African Youth and Adolescent Network (AfriYAN), which have been collaborating in gender-related advocacy efforts since 2017. The objective of this 5 years program is to meaningfully engage youth for a gender just and violence-free society that gives impetus to the Gender and GBV policies in Rwanda.

The Generation G Rwanda coalition intends to contribute effectively to the amplification of young feminist voices, strengthening the role of young men as allies, by focusing on human rights and youth participation and reversing harmful norms and unequal power relations stemming from intersecting identities, to embrace sexual and gender diversity through a gender-transformative approach.

The coalition needs to have pre-established success indicators to track the implementation of activities that will come from a baseline that will inform the project strategies and interventions. Additionally, from a learning perspective, this baseline study will be conducted to inform the project interventions in the light of the theory of change, which will help establish the real policy need for change. And it is in this regard that RWAMREC is looking for an individual consultant or a company  to conduct this baseline  which will inform the project strategies and interventions;
