    Gender Lead

    Contract: 5 Years

    Female Genital Mutilation (FGM) is a form of violence against girls and women, held in place by social norms. It is generally practised as a matter of social and traditional convention and is interlinked with social acceptance, peer pressure and fear of not having access to particular resources and opportunities. The UK Government has a vision of a world free from FGM practice by 2030, in line with the Sustainable Development Goals, and has established a programme to contribute to global efforts to achieve that vision. 

    The UK government programme is underpinned by four principles that will inform and guide all its activities: 

    1. Do no harm 
    2. Supporting, enabling, facilitating and strengthening efforts to end the practice that are led from within affected communities and countries 
    3. Taking a human right, gender equality and girls’ empowerment approach to ending FGM 
    4. Understanding FGM as a form of violence against women and girls, held in place by social norms.

    The programme is comprised of three components:  

    1. Support to the Africa-led movement (ALM) to end FGM at multiple levels and at scale (Lot 1 – delivered by an Options-led consortium);  
    1. Getting laws, policies and systems at multiple levels to work effectively to end FGM (delivered by UNFPA/UNICEF and WHO) 
    1. Generating the right data to guide interventions and measure change (Lot 2 – Data and Measurement (DM) delivered by the Population Council). 

    This programme will therefore address FGM through three complementary and mutually reinforcing approaches. The intended impact of this programme is a significant reduction of the practice of FGM in the focus country(ies) by 2025. The intended outcome of this programme is the acceleration of positive change in social attitudes towards ending FGM in countries/regions in which the programme is operational.
