Terms of Reference

Daring to Shift (D2S) is a project funded by Global Affairs Canada and implemented by Digital  Opportunity Trust (DOT) and its local partners. D2S aims to enhance the resilience and economic inclusion of participating unemployed and underemployed youth (between the ages of 18 and 35) and their communities in regions of sub-Saharan Africa and the Middle East. The project works to develop and support the leadership and decision-making power of young women to enable them to thrive and take advantage of economic opportunities despite barriers that they face. The project takes an innovative approach to scaling up youth empowerment, leadership, and social entrepreneurship. 

DOT has appointed One South (OS) to undertake multi-country needs assessment (NA), gender analysis (GA), and baseline study (BL) for the D2S project. This exercise will cover the 9 project contexts in which DOT will be operating and expanding (Ghana, Jordan, Kenya, Lebanon, Malawi, Rwanda,  Tanzania, Uganda, Zambia). 

To this end, One South through DOT and its partners is recruiting data collectors (enumerators and qualitative research assistants (QRAs)) in countries where DOT is operating and expanding. A country-based Research Manager will contact successful candidates for an interview. 

The assignment places a strong emphasis on youth-led processes and engaging youth in the research.  Therefore, a young candidate with experience and knowledge of youth-led businesses in the target region is preferred for this position. Previous experience working on issues relating to youth and gender should be highlighted in the application.
