Amatangazo   Yanditswe na: Ubwanditsi 31 July 2022

Applying period: 31st July to 3rd August

Duration: Thirty (30) days

Introduction

Amahoro Human Respect (AHR) is a non-governmental organization based in Kigali-Rwanda and registered under the Rwandan law with the registration number N0 438/ RGB/NGO/LP/02/2019. AHR strive to promote human rights education through empowering underserved communities on human rights as well as building the capacity of decision maker to know and meeting their human rights obligations.

AHR works to ensure Lesbians, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Intersex (LGBT+), teenage mothers, People Living with HIV, People who inject Drugs (PWID) and other vulnerable and marginalized groups can fully enjoy their rights as well as combating all forms of gender-based violence throughout the country.

Job context

Free to be Me program puts LGBTIQ+ people and their organizations in the driving seat. Local LGBTIQ+ organizations are best placed to indicate their needs, opportunities and risks. Enabling them to effectively lobby and advocate for their own rights, is our best chance to achieve long-lasting impact. This is what makes the program unique: it brings the principles of local ownership, gender equality, diversity, and inclusion into practice.

Amahoro Human Respect (AHR) has been contracted by Hivos as a host organization in Rwanda under the Free to Be Me program and will be embarking on re-granting of up to 15,000 euros to other LGBTIQ+ organization in Rwanda. We are seeking the services of an expert in grant making to develop a re-granting framework.

The program

Free to be me is an innovative program that builds and maintains a movement of self-confident and diverse LGBTIQ+ organizations and activists who advocate for their human and socio-economic rights.

For a more just, fair, dignified and prosperous society, all people should have equal rights, responsibilities and opportunities. Unfortunately, this is not the case for many lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, intersex and/or queer people (LGBTIQ+).

They face violence and stigma in almost all facets of their lives. For years, they have been targets of social exclusion and physical attacks exclusively due to their (perceived) sexual orientation, gender identity and expression, and sex characteristics (SOGIESC).

Their issues are often overlooked and excluded from programs to reach the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Although LGBTIQ+ movements have become stronger and better organized in the last decades, they still face stiff resistance. The rise of nationalist, right-wing and anti-rights ideologies, as well as weakening democratic structures, have put civic space for LGBTIQ+ organizations in a vulnerable position.

Existing economic development programs are not reaching LGBTIQ+ people and communities adequately or equitably.
