The INSPIRE Working Group, an informal network of some 100 agencies committed to implementing INSPIRE-related programmes, has also launched a call for proposals to support INSPIRE awareness-raising and engagement activities in low- and middle-income countries. Funding is made possible by the New Venture Fund and Ignite Philanthropy: Inspiring the End to Violence Against Girls and Boys.

CONTEXT:

Up to one billion children have experienced physical, sexual or psychological violence in the past year. INSPIRE is a technical package for everyone committed to preventing and responding to violence against children and adolescents – from government to grassroots, and from civil society to the private sector. Ten agencies with a long history of galvanizing a consistent, evidence-based approach to preventing violence against children have collaborated to develop INSPIRE.

The INSPIRE package – made up of the INSPIRE Core document and INSPIRE Implementation Handbook – includes the following seven strategies that together provide a framework for ending violence against children:

1. Implementation and enforcement of laws;

2. Norms and values

3. Safe environments

4. Parent and caregiver support

5. Income and economic strengthening

6. Response and support services

7. Education and life skills (safe schools)

The INSPIRE Core document provides the “what” for each strategy (e.g. objective, potential effects and evidence of effectiveness) while the INSPIRE Implementation Handbook provides the “how” (e.g. theory of change, best practices and costs for each intervention). The INSPIRE Working Group provides a forum where governments, bilaterals, CSOs, professional associations, donors, and UN agencies can: 1) collaborate to achieve collective impact at global and country level; 2) share relevant information on an ongoing basis; and 3) periodically review their joint progress in supporting INSPIRE implementation.

*Note that while the implementation and enforcement of laws is an INSPIRE strategy, this funding cannot be used to conduct lobbying activities as defined by U.S. federal tax law. This includes attempts to influence actions taken by legislative bodies (i.e. a bill or act under consideration by parliament, a county assembly, or other elected public body). Organizations applying for funding will also be required to confirm that activities they’re undertaking comply with local laws in the country where those activities are taking place, including laws related to lobbying and advocacy. 

PURPOSE:

To enable leaders from Low- and Middle-Income Countries increase INSPIRE awareness and engage civil society and governments at national and regional levels, and from those experiences to actively exert leadership in shaping and driving INSPIRE globally. A total of $750,000.00 USD is available within the INSPIRE Fund for this purpose.  Funding is made possible by the New Venture Fund and Ignite Philanthropy: Inspiring the End to Violence Against Girls and Boys. Contracts will be considered in the range of $5,000 USD – $30,000 USD for the purpose described.

 

Please note that higher funding amounts may be considered for consortia or partnership-led initiatives. 

ELIGIBILITY GUIDELINES AND ACTIVITIES:

Contracts will be issued to:

  • Primary Audience: local individuals, organizations and consortia (national and regional-level) from low- and middle-income countries (including but not limited to INSPIRE Working Group members):
  • Priority will be given to local NGOs/CSOs (and local NGO/CSO-led consortia), however, we also welcome applications from other local agencies such as government and academic institutions.
  • Individual applicants will only be considered if they can demonstrate extensive prior thematic and country-level expertise, access to networks and existing relationships.
  • Secondary audience: submissions from International NGOs (or INGO-led consortia) will be considered; however, they should clearly demonstrate how the proposed activities have been designed with local ownership in mind and how local actors will benefit directly.

Dissemination and Promotion of the INSPIRE Package and Participation Support:

Contracts may cover the costs for activities such as the following:

  • Developing spin-off products such as websites, translations into local languages, summaries, promotional videos, infographics, visual summaries and other ways to facilitate access to and understanding of INSPIRE;
  • Developing outreach and dissemination materials such as posters, fliers, brochures and social media packages;
  • Unbranded communications materials that can be adapted and deployed in any context;
  • Organizing informational activities, webinars, convenings, and events with key target audiences;
  • Presenting on INSPIRE strategies at key events;
  • Organizing capacity building workshops related to the INSPIRE framework;
  • Organizing local launches of INSPIRE with the commitment of key players;
  • Working with the scientific media and the general press to publish articles and Op-eds;
  • Documenting and sharing success stories;
  • Planning activities for eventual INSPIRE implementation;
  • Participation and travel support – activities in this category aim to build leadership from Low- and Middle-Income Countries among the growing network of individuals and organizations committed to INSPIRE implementation. Contracts will cover costs for relevant actors and leaders from Low- and Middle-Income Countries to participate in trainings and technical discussions on INSPIRE and on how INSPIRE is promoted, including relevant events with informal networking and meeting opportunities that may help advance those discussions.

This group of activities aims to ensure that the INSPIRE package reaches its wide target audience (e.g., government ministries, NGOs, research agencies, international organizations and funders) and that relevant actors can effectively plan for INSPIRE implementation together. All proposed activities/contracts should be completed no later than July 31, 2019.

APPLICATION CONTENT:

The contract application process requires that you submit:

1. General information about your project (please complete in English),

2. Organizational information (please complete in English),
