Scroll to content
The Kvinna till Kvinna Foundation is a Swedish foundation that supports women civil society organisations (WCSOs) in areas affected by war and conflict to increase women's power, influence and self-esteem.

Kvinna till Kvinna is commissioning a consultant to develop a baseline for Kvinna till Kvinna’s CIVSAM funded programme Women Peace and Security 2019-2023. Kvinna till Kvinna wants to commission a consultant to carry out a baseline study using digital solutions. Due to the current COVID-19 pandemic Kvinna till Kvinna wants to continue with its operations using digital tools to explore new ways of working with baseline studies. 

The baseline will have the programme’s Theory of Change as a point of entry and provide the foundation for monitoring and assessment throughout the implementation period of the program. Using the Theory of Change as rationale the consultant will also work with the feministic concept of “holding the line” and provide guidance and recommendations to Kvinna till Kvinna and partner organisations on the elaboration of baselines, monitoring and evaluation.

The consultancy will be taking place between September 2020 – November 2020.

The deadline for application is 17th of August 2020.

  • Provide a baseline linked to the Theory of Change and the Results Framework.
