Call for Consultancy

 Oxfam in Ethiopia is an international NGO working on humanitarian and long-term development programs in the country since 1974.Empower Youth for Work (EYW) is a five-year programme (2016-2021), funded by the IKEA Foundation. The programme focuses on enabling young people (specially young women) in rural climate-affected areas of four countries, of which Ethiopia is one, to seek and obtain decent work. Working with a wide range of stakeholders (including young people, government and the private sector), the programme applies a holistic approach to also consider the issues of gender-based discrimination, sexual reproductive health, and quality education that could affect how young people make choices about employment. The programme activities promote climate-friendly practices and support young people and their communities in adapting to the effects of climate change.

The EYW programme aims to achieve improved economic and social empowerment for young women and men (age 15-29) living in rural climate-change affected areas. It does so through focusing on three long term objectives: 1) Young women and men use their agency, soft and market-led technical skills; 2) Young women and men benefit from new or improved employment of entrepreneurship opportunities; and 3) An enabling environment for young women and men’s social and economic empowerment. As overarching themes, the program focuses on the effects of climate change, stimulates youth participation through human centered design and has a specific focus on innovation.

Research Objective: To ensure that our project is contributing to respond on a changing future of work and income and ensure young people can take control of their own future, we conduct a specific research to generate specific findings on employment. The findings will be used as final measurement of EYW project implementation in Ethiopia to cope with a changing future of work in a way that reduces inequality.

The research is mainly relying on a quantitative approach. A baseline study was conducted early 2017; a midline study in May 2019, and data for the end line study will be collected in June 2021 Next to the quantitative survey, qualitative Focus Group Discussions will be conducted to understand how change happens.
