UNWOMEN - United Nations Entity for Gender Equality and the Empowerment of Women


Background

UN Women’s goal in Liberia is to promote women’s human rights and gender equality which are key in sustaining and furthering achievements in stability and development.  In this regard, its programming in the Country is connected to five corporate priority areas: women’s leadership and political participation; enhancing women’s economic empowerment (WEE); engaging women in all aspects of peace and security processes (WPS) and advancing women’s rights to live free from violence (VAW) and Gender Responsive Governance. UN Women also coordinates and promotes the UN system’s joint work in advancing gender equality.

Over the next two years, starting 2024, UN Women will be implementing a joint project with UNFPA and OHCHR titled “Accelerating Digital Opportunities for Youth Civic Participation as a lever for Building and Sustaining Peace in Liberia” as part of the Peacebuilding Fund (PBF) Youth Promotion Initiative. The project goal is to increase opportunities for youth participation in decision making processes through the digitalization of existing youth and women-led informal platforms, networks, and organizations. This will be achieved by transforming the youth-led “Atayee centers” and women-led Peace Huts into spaces where youth can meaningfully participate in political and intergenerational dialogues, interact with political actors, women leaders, mentors, traditional and religious leaders and other state actors, and connect to formal civic platforms using a digital interface. 

As a part of this project, UN Women Liberia office with the support of Orange Digital Center is planning to provide innovative training for representatives from youth-led and women-led organizations and networks to advance women’s and young peoples’ equal and substantive participation and leadership in peacebuilding processes and civic space advocacy. This will be done by providing and training the participants in using digital tools and platforms for participation in civic spaces and advocacy. The training will be a pilot training for 24 representatives from youth-led and women-led organizations from Montserrado and Lofa counties.

This will provide women and young people with some of the tools they need to actively participate and influence civic spaces in Liberia and to challenge some of the negative norms and attitudes that act as barriers to women’s and youths’ participation in civic spaces, politics, and policy making.

The main objective of this consultancy is to develop and facilitate a 3-days’ workshop to train 24 representatives from youth-led and women-led organizations in the use of social media and other digital platforms. The training aims to build the capacity of representatives from women-led and youth-led organizations and networks to effectively use digital platforms including social media for advocacy and participation in peacebuilding processes and civic spaces. Furthermore, it will build transferable knowledge and capacity of representatives from women-led and youth-led organizations and networks providing them with user-friendly tools they can use to train more women and youths in their organizations and networks.
