Digital Opportunity Trust (DOT) invites proposals from qualified consultants/firms to support the data collection and analysis for a multi-country gender analysis of program contexts for the Daring to Shift (D2S) project, an initiative funded by the Government of Canada.

The purpose of this assignment is to: Generate research and evidence of gender in project contexts in Tanzania, through the mapping of stakeholders, recruitment of participants, qualitative data collection, and participation in the analysis of results, using virtual methods and tools. The research assistant will work in close collaboration with the In-Country Consultant, DOT Tanzania Gender Officer, DOT HQ Gender Specialist, and other key DOT HQ staff.
