EXPRESSION OF INTEREST FOR CONSULTANCY

DOCUMENTATION OF GLOBAL FINANCING FACILITY STRATEGY, PROCESSESES, & OPPORTUNITIES FOR CIVIL SOCIETY ENGAGEMENT

JUNE 2022

  1. Introduction and Background

Who are We?

SRHR Africa Trust (SAT) supports adolescents and young people in southern Africa to walk healthy, happy, confident & safe pathways to adulthood.  We’re a 31-year-old NGO, focused on young people, SRHR, and the drivers of adolescent health and wellness. All our programming is with young people and through young people, and our Youth Hubs and partner organisations link young people to one another, as well as linking them to health services, governments, the African Union Commission, and global agencies.

The Break Free Consortium

SAT is part of a consortium implementing the Break Free! Programme in a collaboration with Plan International and FAWE and funded by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Netherlands. The Break Free! programme is implemented across 9 countries in West, East, and Southern Africa, with the strategic objective being for adolescents, supported by civil society, to exercise their right to live free from Teenage Pregnancy (TP) and Child Marriage (CM).

The BF! Programme has three pathways of change leading towards the strategic programme objective; one of those is: ‘Adolescents access quality SRHR information, education, and services. SAT has long focused on participative delivery of ASRHR education, information, and services, and in support of Break Free we wish to strengthen this programming with lessons learned in other successful programming in developing contexts.

The GFF

SAT, through the Break Free! Programme, has identified a gap in knowledge of NGOs regarding the Global Financing Facility for Women, Children and Adolescents (GFF). We believe that it is essential for civil society to have a better understanding of, and engagement with the Facility to influence financing coming into the region in support of SRHR, and to align it with domestic priorities, particularly those of adolescents and young people.
