Description

EXPRESSION OF INTEREST FOR  PARTNERS TO SUPPORT THE ADOLESCENT SEXUAL REPRODUCTIVE HEALTH &  JOBS, SKILLS AND EMPLOYABILITY PROJECT

January 2022 to December 2024

  1. BACKGROUND

TRIGGERISE is a non-profit that motivates users – primarily young women and adolescent girls – to make positive choices. We use nudges like reminders, discounts, in-person and digital follow-ups, and reward points to  encourage  our  users  to  access  and  use  healthy  products and services. We are also connecting young jobseekers with soft and digital skills training, vocational and technical education, and apprenticeship opportunities in order to improve their employability in Addis Ababa and Bahir Dar.

Triggerise is registered in Ethiopia and has its main office in Addis Ababa. Currently, Triggerise carries out its programmes in ten sub-cities of Addis Ababa and the capital city of Amhara, Bahir Dar.

Triggerise is currently implementing a donor-funded 36-month sexual reproductive health (SRH) & job skills and employability (JSE) programme in Ethiopia. The main goal of these interventions is to increase access to modern  contraceptives  among  adolescent  girls  and  young  women  aged  15-29  and  to  increase  skills development and employability for both young women and men aged 15-29. The sub-cities in which the intervention will be implemented are Akaki Kality, Addis Ketema, Bole, Gullele, Kirkos, Lideta, Nifas Silk Lafto, Yeka, Arada, Kolfe Keranio in Addis Ababa.

Triggerise is therefore requesting proposals from eligible organisations to undertake activities that generate demand and support youth in accessing contraceptive services, job skills training, and employment in line with national policies and guidelines. These activities should be done through the use of community-based mobilisers. For the purposes of this EOI, eligible organisations are defined as legally registered CBOs, and Local NGOs who have existing work in the above-defined sub-cities. Selected organisations will be asked to sign a contract with Triggerise for the delivery of the services outlined below.

  1. SCOPE OF WORK

The  scope of work for successful applicants will be as follows:

  • Recruit mobilisers to generate demand for contraceptive services among adolescent girls and young women aged 15-29, and for job skills and employment among both males and females between the age of 15-29. Refer youth for services among approved service providers in their communities;

○    Ensure that there is a minimum number of 10  trained mobilisers focused on supporting the project.

  • Train mobilisers to generate demand and refer youth for services using standard guidelines, tools, IEC materials and other collateral to be provided by Triggerise;
  • Motivate and supervise mobilisers to ensure that they comply with the standard code of conduct while generating demand and making service referrals;
  • Mobilise Beneficiaries and follow up to ensure the right target audiences are enrolled for both the JSE and SRH programme. CBOs expected to mobilise 3000 beneficiaries (in one-year duration) for the JSE programme with a maximum of 1% dropout rate; and 15,000 beneficiaries for SRH services.
  • Engage communities in the localities in which they operate so that they are aware of the project including its goals and are support of its aim. Activities may include community mobilization sessions, youth fun activities( like theaters and dance festivals), community meetings, door-to-door awareness creation sessions and others.
