Hands Off II Terms of Reference short-term consultancy

Hands Off II Terms of Reference short-term consultancy

The Hands Off programme team is looking for an experienced consultant who will facilitate sex worker-led organisations to develop their multi-year organisational capacity strategy. 

You can apply by sending the following information to Ingeborg van Beekum at ivanbeekum[at]aidsfonds.nl before 31 July 2021.

 

The main goal of the Hands Off programme is to reduce violence against sex workers at community, national and regional level. Hands Off will contribute to the reduction of violence through four long-term outcomes: 1) an empowered and resilient sex worker movement that demands its rights, 2) increased access to and use of inclusive services for sex workers, 3) a more enabling environment for sex work, and 4) sex workers protected and served by law enforcement. The programme’s primary target group is female, male and transgender sex workers, meaning those who receive money or goods in exchange for sexual services, either regularly or occasionally. Hands Off is implemented in South Africa, Botswana, Mozambique, Zambia and Zimbabwe. Learn more about Hands Off II here
