ECW Calls for Proposals to Advance Gender Equality and Empowerment of Women and Girls in Emergencies and Protracted Crises
Request for Proposals (RFP) promoting Gender Equality and Empowerment of Women and Girls in Emergencies and Protracted Crises.
Education Cannot Wait has committed to investing in targeted Acceleration Facility programmes on Gender Equality and Empowerment of Women and Girls to address systemic bottlenecks in education in emergencies and protracted crises at both the system and learning space/school levels.
This RFP is for programmatic work to be funded through ECW’s Acceleration Facility window in support of ECW Multi-Year Resilience Programmes in 2023 to ensure that new investments advance gender equality in and through education.
The purpose of this RFP is to pilot or deliver initiatives and services that promote gender equality and empowerment of women and girls, through the following focus areas: Evidence building and data generation to inform new MYRPs; innovative approaches to support local women and girls organizations’ meaningful engagement in EiEPC, capacity strengthening on gender in EiEPC global public goods and GBV risk mitigation; and Gender-transformative education in EiEPC documentation, capacity building and measurement.
By developing, piloting or delivering these interventions and services, the RFP will develop globally-relevant public goods and evidence that can be used to expand access to safe, gender transformative quality education in emergencies and protracted crises. As such, the focus of the current RFP is on programmatic work while knowledge products and tools are a desirable output that would result from implementation.
The application process will be in two stages. The first stage is an Expression of Interest (EoI) stage, based on which ECW will shortlist applicants that meet minimum criteria and pass the bar for invitation to submit their full proposal.
For more details on eligibility/objectives/priority countries, please register for the online orientation and refer to the attached RFP and related resources.
