Call for Proposals: Mille femmes program in Senegal

Colleges and Institutes Canada (CICan) is pleased to announce the launch of a second call for proposals for institutional partners as part of its Mille femmes: Je suis Femme, j’Existe, je Participe Program (One Thousand Women: I am woman, I exist, I participate – FEP) in Senegal.

  • Seven (7) calls for proposals (ETS_01) to support developing instrumentation for Professional Specialization Certification (PSC) programs within the Project’s partner TVET Establishments (ÉTS), promoting gender mainstreaming in its adaptation.
  • One (1) call for proposals (ETS_02) to support building the capacities of the heads of TVET partner establishments, trainers and actors involved in the training of trainers in the gender approach, and more specifically in gender-sensitive pedagogy.
  • One (1) call for proposals (MIN_02) to support communication officers from the Ministry of Vocational Training, Apprenticeship and Integration (MFPAI) and civil society partners to develop, design and implement promotional activities, advocacy campaigns and awareness-raising campaigns to overcome the economic, socio-cultural and political constraints faced by girls and women.

Please note that the operating language of this program is French. Proposals must, therefore, be submitted in French and the Terms of Reference are available in French only.

The five-year Mille femmes: Je suis Femme, j’Existe, je Participe Program is funded by Global Affairs Canada.

The deadline to submit proposals is 12:00 pm Thursday, on October 19, 2023 (EDT).
