Synopsis: UN WOMEN Kenya Country Office invites qualified parties to submit Technical and Financial Proposals to provide services associated with the UN-WOMEN requirement for Responsible Party for the project, “Enhancing Women’s Resilience in Refugee Camps and Host Communities”.
UN Women, through the support of the Government of Japan, seeks to respond to the needs of women and girls through the Women’s Leadership, Empowerment, Access and Protection (LEAP III) project in Turkana County – which hosts Kakuma refugee camp and Kalobeyei Integrated Settlement, and in Garissa County – which hosts Dadaab refugee camp.
To achieve the results above, UN Women is calling for proposals from national and international women’s organizations, civil society organizations and non-governmental organizations to achieve Outcomes 1 and 2 and support the empowerment of women and girls living in refugee and host communities in Kenya.
Outcome 1: Women meaningfully participate and influence peace and security initiatives and humanitarian processes.
Outcome 2: Women are economically empowered, have access to humanitarian services, and their protection and safety are strengthened against all forms of violence and exploitation.
