Call for consultancy service to conduct Endline assessment for a project “Breaking the barriers: Promoting women entrepreneurship in sustainable energy value chains through innovative approaches”
Location: Burkina Faso, Ethiopia, Honduras, and Malawi.
Christian Aid exists to create a world where everyone can live a full life, free from poverty. We are a global movement of people, churches and local organisations who passionately champion dignity, equality and justice worldwide. We are the changemakers, the peacemakers, the mighty of heart. Christian Aid in Ethiopia has three strategic priority areas. These are climate justice, Economic justice, humanitarian/resilience and addressing Gender and social inclusion as a cross cutting priority.
CA, with financial support from the European Union, is implementing a 4-year multi-country project called Breaking the Barriers (BtB). The project is being implemented in Burkina Faso, Ethiopia, Honduras, and Malawi. The project aims to increase rural women’s jobs and income in the Sustainable Energy (SE) sector, and thus promote gender equality; improving rural women’s working, living conditions and well-being through their access to SE Technologies (SET) and related sub-products and services; and strengthening women’s social status. To contribute to these overall objectives, the project has been striving to: (1) increase women’s production, marketing, and distribution of SE products and related services; (2) increase women’s use of SET and related services; and (3) improve the societal and institutional environment for women’s entrepreneurship in the SE sector.
Breaking the Barriers has established 201 Women Led Sustainable Energy Enterprises (WLSEEs) across the 4 countries. The WSEEs have been supported with financial support (70 percent grant, 25 percent loan, and 5 percent own contribution) to engage in innovative enterprises in the agricultural value chain and clean energy. In addition, the project has supported national and sub national advocacy platforms to promote Sustainable Energy Technologies and women’s role in the sector.
