Call for application

The Call for Applications
October – December 2019
In Mali, Niger and Burkina Faso

The process of selecting the beneficiaries of the project (future members of the pool) formally started on October 25, 2019, with the opening of a call for applications through several communication channels in order to reach the maximum of potential women candidates for the pool. This call, initially open from October 25, 2010 to November 25, 2019, has been extended until December 10, 2020 for Burkina Faso and Niger, to collect even more applications.

The pool of female expertise is a college of 30 women from Malian, Burkinabè and Nigerien civil society. These are women from diverse backgrounds and with the will and the potential to assume a pioneering and leadership role in participating in Security Sector Reform (SSR) processes in their communities and in their countries of origin.

The members of the pool will benefit from an in-depth training program in several workshops, in order to acquire the necessary knowledge, skills and access. These training courses aim to provide them with technical expertise on the principles of good governance, inclusive security governance, legal institutional and strategic frameworks, the impact of gender on security and the role of civil society in democratic governance of this sector.

From October to December 2019, DDG and WANEP launched a Call for Applications to find these dynamic women who will be part of the pool of female expertise throughout the project period; i.e. a period from December 2019 to December 2022.

Among the criteria sought for future members of the pool, we can note:

– Nationality since the project aims to train national resources for Mali, Niger and Burkina Faso;

– Age – with a theoretical limit set at 40 to promote the empowerment and leadership of young people;

– In-depth knowledge of at least one region of the country and local roots in order to be able to carry the voice of specific communities and ensure a broad geographic representativeness of the pool while avoiding as much as possible its focus on women in capitals only;

– Fluency in at least one national language of the country, in order to be able to ensure the direct communication necessary for advocacy on behalf of the communities;

And finally, commitment and availability throughout the life of the project, and beyond: the project to set up a pool is an investment in people, the commitment of future members of the pool to the long term is therefore an essential factor for the success and sustainability of the project results.

In Niger

By the initial closing date of the call, November 25, the project had received 69 applications for the Niger fishpond. However, a preliminary analysis reveals an overwhelming proportion of candidates from the capital Niamey. In order to correct this imbalance and increase the number of applications received, the call for applications for Niger is extended until December 10 and a complementary dissemination strategy has been implemented which includes.

This strategy made it possible to increase the number of applications to 79 as of December 10, 2019.
