Project Manager Gender, Sexual and Reproductive Health, fight against Gender-Based Violence (m/f/x) – Guinea (Kindia)

Enabel is the Belgian Development Agency. It implements Belgian government cooperation. The Agency also implements actions for other national and international organisations. Together with its Belgian and international partners, Enabel provides solutions to address pressing global challenges – climate change, urbanization, human mobility, peace and security, social and economic inequalities – and to promote global citizenship. With 2,000 employees, Enabel manages some 170 projects in some twenty countries, in Belgium, Africa and the Middle East.


The new 2023-2028 cooperation program in Guinea (€34M) aims to strengthen the economic, social and environmental resilience of vulnerable populations, especially youth and women, enabling sustainable human development in Guinea. It will be implemented through 4 interventions:
- sustainable agriculture to support food security,
- economic integration of young people and women,
- women's empowerment, women's leadership, sexual and reproductive health and GBV and
- Facility to support fragility, innovation and territorial dynamics

The objective of the intervention is to improve the empowerment of girls and women in the intervention area. This includes better access to quality sexual and reproductive health rights and services, including for survivors of gender-based violence. The intervention will focus on increasing women's resilience in their environment, their access to basic social services, their enjoyment of fundamental human rights and their civic participation. The intervention includes three axes: strengthening institutional actors and civil society to improve women's empowerment; strengthening access to and quality of sexual and reproductive health services; and holistic care for survivors of gender-based violence.

Gender and inclusion, climate change and the environment, innovation, digitalization and decent work are cross-cutting themes across all interventions.
