Terms of Reference for [Masarouna Advocacy actions CONSULTANTS”]

Reference number: [Insert RFQ no]

Background

Oxfam has been in Jordan since the 1990s. We work with local partners in Jordan for a future where everyone can reach their full potential, especially women and young people. We provide essential humanitarian assistance to Syrian refugees as well as vulnerable Jordanians, while promoting longer term sustainable solutions to challenges facing Jordan, with a focus on Climate Justice, Economic Justice and Gender Justice.

Under the Gender Justice programme, Oxfam is part of a regional consortium implementing the Masarouna “Our pathway” programme. The Masarouna initiative follows two interlinked pathways to achieve lasting change: influencing decision makers and communities; and strengthening civic space. Both pathways are supported by a cross-cutting capacity strengthening approach, in partnership with a range of civil society actors. Global and regional partners facilitate access to funds and bring technical and thematic expertise. The project builds on Oxfam’s expertise in using a rights-based and gender responsive approach, with a strong focus on advocating for vulnerable women and young people in Jordan.

Introduction to Required Services

The consultant will be responsible for implementing the Masarouna Jordan Influencing Strategy, which is designed to create a society in which all young people in Jordan have greater freedom of choice and respect for their SRHR. The strategy involves a series of advocacy actions, including roundtable meetings, ongoing influencing activities, and producing policy papers.

The consultant will coordinate the work of all Masarouna partners in Jordan, ensuring alignment and coordination of all influencing components for joint efforts. They will also serve as the focal points with the target groups across different governorates. This role includes capacity building of rightsholders and youth groups, empowering them to advocate for their rights. The capacity-building activities will follow a learning-by-doing approach, targeting communities where SRHR topics are not inclusively addressed. Additionally, the consultant will produce policy papers, position papers, and factsheets throughout the implementation of the relevant component, serving as valuable resources for SRHR advocacy and policy change influence.
