Prequalification of Consultants (Agencies/Individuals)

Who We Are
Girl Effect is an international non-profit that builds media that girls want, trust and need. From chatbots to chat shows, TV dramas to tech, our content helps adolescent girls in Africa and Asia make choices and changes in their lives. We create safe spaces for girls, sharing facts and answering questions about health, nutrition, education, and relationships, empowering girls with the skills to negotiate and redefine what they are told is possible “for a girl”.
Our reach is 50 million and counting. And we’re using technology to reach girls at scale so every girl can choose to be in control of her body, her health, her learning and her livelihood.
Because when a girl unlocks her power to make different choices that change her life, it inspires others to do so too. She starts a ripple effect that impacts her family, community, and country.
That’s the Girl Effect.
For over a decade, we have been building technology that aims to create a safer and more accessible world for women and girls, using the insights and experiences girls share with us.
As technology evolves and girls’ habits change, we continuously strive to adapt and improve the platforms, processes, and infrastructure that underpin everything we do.
What we are looking for
We are at an exciting stage of our tech development: growing our internal tech team, developing relationships with our tech vendors and delivering a range of impactful and dynamic projects for girls at the forefront of the tech-for-good space.
To help us deliver our varied tech portfolio, we are looking to partner with small consultancies, agencies and/or individuals who are interested in working with us as consultants on short-term tech projects when we have a specific opportunity that requires additional technical (software engineering and UX) expertise and/or a level of experience not currently available within our teams.
We will draw on the support of these consultants to complete both short-term ongoing and/or new projects, delivered in close partnership with Girl Effect’s Technology Team and our tech partners.
We do not expect one applicant to fulfill all our criteria, but welcome applications from individuals/consultancies/agencies who can help us understand how their experience, knowledge and skills could enable us to progress our tech roadmaps and our thinking.
In return, we can offer you the opportunity to join our tech roster for one year and play a crucial role in creating a better world for girls.
Consultants must be available from April 2023 and able to jump onto projects with a lead time of at most four weeks.
