  • Organization: Geneva Global, Inc.
  • Term: 6 months – with potential for extension, based on program needs.
  • Location of consultancy:Uganda
  • Status: Full-time, consultant

Introduction

Geneva Global seeks a consultant to act as a Program Advisor in the set-up and launch of the Girls First Fund’s grantmaking services and related activities in Uganda. Geneva Global is a social enterprise that provides a full range of advice and services to help individuals, foundations, corporations, and nonprofits in their social change initiatives. Geneva Global is providing services to the Girls’ First Fund, a pooled philanthropic fund that seeks to expand resources to community-based organizations, particularly women- and girl-centered and -led organizations that are working to comprehensively prevent and respond to child marriage. The Girls First Fund is being supported by seven Founding Donors that have made large-scale, multi-year commitments. The Founding Donors include, the Children’s Investment Fund Foundation (CIFF), David & Lucile Packard Foundation, Dutch Postcode Lottery, Ford Foundation, The Kendeda Fund, NoVo Foundation, and an anonymous foundation.

The Girls First Fund puts girls, families, and their communities first and champions community-led efforts to end child marriage. The Fund’s primary vision is, “to realize a world in which every girl has access to the information, services, resources, skills, and support necessary to decide when, if, and whom to marry in order to live a healthy and equal life and to achieve her full potential.” Geneva Global is currently working with the Fund’s Board to design a pilot program in six countries with the aim of making grants in early 2019.

The Program Advisor will work closely with other Geneva Global team members and Girls First Fund stakeholders to ensure that the values and guiding principles of the Fund inform its in-country activities and practices. Through the Girls First Fund, the Program Advisor will work alongside selected community-based organizations and locally-focused national organizations, supporting them to design and implement their own context-specific approaches, solutions, and innovations to address child marriage. The Fund is committed to being community-driven, transparent, and collaborative, utilizing grantmaking practices that are gender transformative and adhere to the highest standards of child protection. Therefore, it is necessary that the Program Advisor’s work and behavior be guided by such principles.
