Restless Development ,Consultant Jobs in Tanzania



Closing date: 15 Dec 2016
DEVELOPMENT STRATEGY BASELINE AND DATABASE
BACKGROUND AND JUSTIFICATION:
We are Restless Development; a youthful, dynamic and innovative national agency which carries the banner for youth led development in Tanzania. Everything we do is led by and through young people. We are who we serve, placing young people at the forefront of change, empowering them to take leadership roles addressing the most urgent issues facing their communities. We recognize youn
g people as an asset, who can and do contribute to, and lead change. Our vision is: A world where young people are at the forefront of change and development, achieving a just and sustainable world for all.
As the leading agency for youth led development, we put young people at the heart of our work, from community to board level. We transfer the power and responsibility into the hands of young people and communities who can achieve a real, lasting impact, whether it’s responding to challenges such as lack of access to quality education, building sustainable livelihoods and economic security, or long-term HIV prevention. We believe that it is young people who are able to find solutions to those issues most important to them and drive success.
In March 2016, we came to an end of our 2011/2016 strategic plan. We embarked in developing a new strategy Kizazi Kipya (New Generation) which draws on our rich body of evidence and research including; Youth-led State of the Youth Studies 2012 and 2013; numerous programme-based consultations; and The Big Conversation, a participatory youth survey we conducted in February 2015 to identify young people’s priorities for their development, for their leadership, and how they want to create change in Tanzania. This reached out to 565 young people directly, and involved in-depth consultations with 67 national and local stakeholders. Their views were rich and varied but their biggest priorities were clear; young people want better employment and job opportunities, better well-being enabled through access to services, to participate in decision making and a more responsive government. It is these priorities that have informed our strategy and focus. Young people are ready to take up – and are calling for a leadership role in development and in our agency. This call speaks directly to the tone and drive of our strategy – to enable the Peak Youth generation to lead a new type of development that will ensure the success of Tanzania National Development Goals and SDGs.
Our Goals
Voice: A world where young people are active citizens, where institutions are accessible and responsive to young people, and where young people can influence those with power.
Living: A world where young people can drive sustainable economies, where businesses and governments invest in and learn from young people’s enterprise, and where young people achieve a decent, sustainable living.
Sexual Rights: A world where young people realize sexual and reproductive rights for all, where policies, attitudes and services advance people’s sexual and reproductive health and rights, helping to end AIDS and enabling young men and women to be free from discrimination.
Leadership: A world where young people build resilient and sustainable communities, where the agency of young people and communities is at the heart of both preventing and solving arising challenges and emergencies.
