4. Tupande Gender Lead At One Acre Fund

Seeking a passionate gender lead with 5+ years of experience to design and implement tailored interventions to improve equity in access and benefit for young women across the Tupande programme.
Location Kenya
Career Level Professionals

About the Role

Empowering women farmers must be integral to any solution to extreme hunger and poverty — yet at present, women in Africa have less access to agricultural productive resources and services, achieve only 20-30% of the farm yields as men, and have less control over household decisions and income. These gender-based structural roadblocks inflict cascading negative consequences for women, their families, and society.

In Kenya, we are looking for a passionate Gender Lead to review and inform our strategy, and to design and implement tailored interventions to improve equity in access and benefit for young women across the Tupande programme model. Reporting to the Director of Product Strategy, you will shape our thinking and contribution to gender transformation and build a strategy that helps us deliver improved outcomes for rural women in Kenya.

Responsibilities

  • Conduct programme review and gender inclusion assessment:
    • Leverage outputs from recent gender inclusion assessment work in Kenya; review the Tupande programme model to identify constraints faced by young rural women for equitable access to-  and benefit from – Tupande’s multichannel service offering.
    • Identify opportunities for strengthening components of the Tupande programme including farmer training, digital offerings, crop commercialisation work, and micro-enterprise opportunities to increase the engagement and advancement of young rural women.
  • Build gender vision and strategy: 
    • Building from the gender inclusion assessment and programme review, and utilizing targeted formative research, develop a country-level gender roadmap which addresses the barriers faced by young women smallholders and ensures Tupande’s farmer-facing work contributes to gender equity, equality, and empowerment of women.
  • Design gender transformative initiatives: 
    • Use gender inclusion, formative and other research to design and implement specific interventions and program modifications tailored to the unique constraints, needs and priorities of female smallholders, ensuring integration of a gender lens across Tupande’s programme offering.
    • Provide strategic and technical support to co-design gender transformative initiatives to maximize returns for rural women.
  • Support Monitoring, Evaluation and Learning (MEL)
