Terre des hommes (Tdh) Jordan delegation is seeking to contract an expert to provide training content development services.
I-Organization and Context background information
Terre des hommes (Tdh) Jordan was established in 2007 in response to the Iraqi refugee crisis and the programme has since evolved to respond to various emergencies, including the Syrian refugee crisis. In 2013, Tdh launched the Access to Justice programme, focused on protecting the rights of girls and boys in contact with the law and aiming to create a child-friendly juvenile justice system in Jordan. Tdh works with Syrian refugees in-camp EJC (Emirati Jordan Camp)) as well as with out-of-camp refugees and vulnerable host communities in collaboration with local partners and community-based organisations. Tdh has strong relationships with the Ministry of Social Development, Ministry of Justice, Ministry of Labor and other governmental stakeholders and supports formal and informal systems to fulfil children’s rights and deliver protection services.
Our thematic priorities:
Migration and Protection:
The Migration and Protection programme aims to reduce children’s vulnerability, to guarantee their rights, to respond to their needs and to facilitate their access to development opportunities, working with communities and beneficiaries directly through providing Case Management, Mental Health, and Psychosocial Support (MHPSS) and skills development activities.
Access to Justice:
The Access to Justice programme focuses on supporting girls, boys, their families, civil society actors, judicial and governmental stakeholders in upholding youth and children’s rights, through provision of specialised services including capacity building for justice and child protection professionals, and technical assistance in legislation and policy
II- Objective and deliverables of this assignment
Tdh is a consortium member of the She Leads program, which is a global program aiming to increase sustained influence of girls and young women (GYW) on decision-making, alongside the transformation of gender norms in formal and informal institutions via working in three interrelated domains:
- the enhancement of collective action of girls and young women in a gender-responsive civil society
- increased acceptance of positive social gender norms
- enabling meaningful participation of girls and young women in decision-making by political institutions.
The project is scheduled to run for five years from 2021-2025 and will target both the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region, and Jordan on a national level. Tdh is working closely with communities across Jordan to ensure that the needs and voices of girls and young women are heard by decision-makers. Tdh also targets communities across Jordan with information and awareness-raising activities to empower girls and young women to know their rights.
For Tdh in Jordan, She Leads has three outcomes:
Outcome 1: Communities in Jordan promote positive social norms to unlock girls and young women potential by 2025.
Outcome 2: Civil Society in Jordan is enabled to implement gender sensitive programming and promote meaningful participation of GYW by 2025.
Outcome 3: National legislative environment adopts a gender sensitive approach by 2025
To build the capacity of girls and young women, Tdh will create training materials for girls and young women in communities, and training materials for female university students. These materials will be used to train the beneficiaries on their rights, under both Jordanian and international legislation and agreements, related to gender equality. These materials will be used to train GYW and female students on their rights to counteract misinformation and misunderstanding in communities.

Key Deliverable 1: Creation of training materials on GYW rights based on the personal status and criminal laws and the related international rights tailored for female university students.
