VACANCY: Consultancy to develop a Monitoring and Evaluation Framework for End FGM European Network Strategic plan 2018-2022

End FGM European Network

The End FGM European Network (End FGM EU) is an umbrella network of 20 national organisations working in 12 European countries and who are expert on Female Genital Mutilation (FGM). End FGM EU operates as a meeting ground for communities, civil society organisations, decision-makers and other relevant actors at European level to interact, cooperate and join forces to end all forms of FGM in Europe and beyond. We put at the heart of our work grassroots voices to influence European governments and policy-makers to work towards the elimination of FGM. We build our members’ capacity, offer spaces to share expertise and develop partnerships.

While being dedicated to being the driving force of the European movement to end FGM, we are equally committed to build bridges and cooperation with all relevant actors in the field of FGM both in Europe and globally. In this sense, we actively promote and foster cooperation between the European movement and movements in other regions of the world

The team currently consists of four full-time staff and an intern. End FGM EU is funded by an operating grant from the European Commission, membership fees, grants from Wallace Global Fund and Sigrid Rausing Trust.
