USAID-KAVES Gender Mainstreaming Request for Consultancy Services

Request for Consultancy Services: Gender Mainstreaming in the KAVES Project
The Kenya Agricultural Value Chain Enterprises (USAID-KAVES) project, is a five year activity funded by the United States Agency for International Development with the goal of increasing the productivity and incomes of smallholder farmers and other actors along dairy, horticulture and staples value chains in 22 target counties in the eastern and western regions of Kenya. 

The project recognizes that social stability and economic growth require the participation of both men and women. 

As investments are made to increase incomes, enhance food security, and stimulate growth it is critical to ensure that women participate in this process as leaders, decision makers, productive actors and beneficiaries in value chains.

The project’s approach to gender starts by recognizing the key role that women play in agricultural production systems, and activities up and down the value chain. 

Increasing incomes, job opportunities, and economic growth requires that gender be addressed across project components.

Gender Mainstreaming in the USAID–KAVES Project: The main goal of this activity is to ensure that interventions implemented by KAVES enhance gender equity. 

The consultant will therefore adopt an evidence-based approach in identifying gender gaps in the three value chain activities and develop a gender mainstreaming strategy for project that also complies with the requirements of GOK, USAID and Fintrac.

The consultant will also train project staff to develop a common understanding of the KAVES gender strategy and practice.

Scope of Work
1. Review of existing USAID, Fintrac and GOK gender empowering/mainstreaming policies and strategies in relation to KAVES value chain development activities.
