Advert for Consultancy for Development and Design of Activism Tools
Background
CARE Rwanda, together with the Rwanda Men's Resour
ce Centre (RWAMREC) and Rwanda Women's Network (RWN) are running a project entitled lndashyikirwa, meaning "agents of change," funded by DFID Rwanda to empower women and engage men towards the prevention of gender-based violence (GBV) in communities across 7 districts ( Bugesera , Rwamagana, Kayonza, Musanze, Burera, Rubavu and Nyabihu). The project covers the period from August 2014 to August 2018:
lndashyikirwa project focuses on GBV primary prevention and aims to reduce intimate partner violence (IPV) as a primary outcome. It uses a gender synchronized approach to bring about sustainable social change through the engagement of men and women at the individual, family and community levels, to challenge harmful and restrictive constructions of masculinity and femininity that drive inequality leading to GBV. Interventions proposed aim to positively transform attitudes, practices and social norms towards achieving more equitable gender power relations, and thus gender equality. This includes going beyond awareness raising to engage individuals and communities to become agents of change towards achieving broader social change to prevent GBV.
