TITLE:                                     Consultant, Developing Model Workshops for Gender Equality and Human Rights


REPORTS TO:                       ESP-Senior Technical Advisor-Gender


LOCATION:                            The consultant will be based in Tanzania with the flexibility to travel to the location of the Train-the-Trainer workshop (tentatively planned for Morogoro).






The Empowerment through Skills Program (ESP) is a 7-year program (2021-2028) implemented by Colleges and Institutes Canada (CICan) in close collaboration with Tanzania’s Ministry of Education, Science and Technology (MoEST) through the Department of Technical and Vocational Education and Training (DTVET). The ESP is funded by the Government of Canada.


The ESP will strengthen alternative pathways to education, employment, self-employment, and entrepreneurship for women and adolescent girls. Working with Folk Development Colleges (FDCs) and Community-Based Organizations (CBOs) in 12 Communities across Tanzania, ESP aims to increase rates of participation among women and adolescent girls in skills training programs and improve access to business, skills, and gender and human rights training in their communities. The Program will also expand opportunities in the informal and formal sectors through post-training support to transition to employment or self-employment.

ESP’s Ultimate Outcome 1000: Improved economic participation by women and adolescent girls in Tanzania.


Refer to Annex 1 for an overview of the ESP, the list of Folk Development Colleges (FDCs), and community-based Organizations (CBOs), their districts and regions.






The Empowerment through Skills Program (ESP) is collaborating with Key stakeholders from FDCs, CBOs, and Local Government Councils to raise awareness of the Communities on Gender Equality and Human Rights. The targeted groups for awareness-raising and advocacy are girls, women, boys, men, and other groups like boda boda drivers, daladala drivers and conductors, traditional, political, and religious leaders, parents, as well as adolescent mothers.


ESP conducted a successful key stakeholder meeting in June 2022 which included an orientation to ESP, networking, sharing of the program gender analysis and gender equality strategy as well as CBOs capacity assessment. The capacity assessment shows that ESP partners require capacity building on various aspects to be able to deliver workshops, training, seminars, and different campaigns on Gender Equality and Human Rights among different groups in their communities.
