Description

About InterAction:

InterAction is the largest U.S. based coalition of international nongovernmental organizations (NGOs) with nearly 190 members working around the world in low- and middle-income countries, fragile and post-conflict states, and emerging/growth economies. Member organizations are large and small, secular and faith-based, with a focus on people living in the world’s most poor and vulnerable places. The U.S. public, foundations, and governments support the work of our member NGOs that collectively invest and manage more than $15.4 billion a year. InterAction revenues come from dues, government grants, private foundation and corporate grants, and a growing fee-for-service program portfolio. Using its collective voice and convening power, InterAction seeks to shape important policy decisions and actions across a wide range of issues – including foreign assistance, humanitarian relief, development, economic equity, food security, and climate change – that advance human dignity, human potential, and self-determination.

About the Project:

Since 2012, InterAction has been at the forefront of results-based approaches to protection. Through its signature work on Results-Based Protection, InterAction has carried out numerous roundtables, interagency dialogues, field-level workshops, and trainings with NGOs around the world to identify and distill the key elements of results-based protection. Under its current work, InterAction is providing country-level support to NGOs in select countries, including Nigeria, as well as developing an evaluation framework for the prevention of gender-based violence.

Position Objective:

InterAction is seeking proposals from consultants with a proven background in producing dynamic, high-quality graphics that distill and easily communicate complex ideas for a diverse, multi-lingual audience. The consultant(s) will work in collaboration with InterAction’s Results-Based Protection Team and Communications Team to produce approximately five graphics on themes such as iteration, theories of change, and other concepts fundamental to Results-Based Protection for use in RBP workshop materials, reports, handouts, stickers, PowerPoints, and on the RBP website. Many of the materials featuring the newly designed graphics will be shared as open-source to NGOs and other actors seeking to apply results-based approaches to protection into their programming.
