VSO is the world’s leading international development charity that works through volunteers to create a fair world for everyone. At VSO we pride ourselves on doing development differently. We fight poverty not by sending aid, but by working through volunteers and partners to create long-lasting change in some of the world’s poorest regions. We bring key stakeholders together to co-ordinate collective action, from local organisations to national governments. Our programmes in Africa and Asia focus on health, education and livelihoods, with an increasing emphasis on resilience, peace building, social accountability, gender and social inclusion. We’re not about delivering quick fixes, but instead we focus on long-lasting, sustainable change that will improve the lives of generations to come.

Role overview

The ‘Make Way programme’ is a five-year programme (2021-2025), implemented by a consortium consisting of Akina Mama wa Afrika, The Circle of Concerned African Women Theologians, Forum for African Women Educationalists, Liliane Foundation, VSO Netherlands, with Wemos as lead, in partnership with the Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs. It aims to break down barriers to Sexual and Reproductive Health (SRH) by promoting a new way of considering discrimination through an intersectional lens. The Make Way programme uses an intersectional approach to acknowledge systemic discrimination due to overlapping aspects of a person’s identity (gender, race, economic status, immigration status, national origin, etc) and the subsequent impact on access to SRH services.

The Make Way programme is implemented in Ethiopia, Kenya, Rwanda, Uganda, and Zambia, the (Eastern and Southern) African region and at the global level. In Ethiopia, the consortium consists of VSO Ethiopia, FAWE Ethiopia and Ipas (partner of Liliane Foundation).

On behalf of the Make Way consortium, VSO wishes to conduct a social exclusion, gender and political economy analysis in order to establish the power imbalances that exist in different contexts. This understanding in turn helps VSO to design appropriate interventions that address the power imbalances through empowering those affected by inequalities, exclusion and marginalisation.

The analysis will involve reflecting on and mapping the systems of social exclusion and gender inequality and being clear about how the two relate to marginalization and vulnerability. It is also important to understand the context in which the Make Way programme operates, therefore this analysis will include examining how political, economic, social and cultural power are distributed, identification of the decisive factors, influential actors and how to engage them to initiate change in improving access and provision of services.

Objectives of the Analysis:
1. Identify and analyse the multiple identities and how these affect access to and uptake of SRH services for particularly the marginalized/minoritized youth.
2. Understand and articulate the social, cultural, religion/belief, political, economic, and institutional drivers of this exclusion and why marginalized young people are prevented from realizing their sexual and reproductive health.
3. Identify enablers and obstacles of meaningful youth engagement in inclusive access to SRH among minoritized youth.
4. Identify health financing frameworks and the key power relations and influences, dynamics and trends in health systems, structures and processes related to SRH for minoritized youth in Ethiopia? What are existing opportunities in Ethiopia for Make Way?
