TERMS OF REFERENCE

INFORMATION COMMUNICATION AND TECHNOLOGY(ICT) SUPPORT SERVICE  FOR PURPOSEFUL SIERRA LEONE.

Introduction

Purposeful is an Africa-rooted global hub for girls’ activism. For millennia, girls have played a critical role in struggles for freedom and liberation. From Africa’s anti-colonial movements to the Arab spring to climate justice organising and everything in between, their resistance has always sparked and sustained transformational change. And yet, too often girls are separated and side-lined from resources and shut out from decision-making spaces, their power deliberately obscured and hidden from view.

Cantering the political power of young feminists across the world, we work so that girls and their allies have access to the resources, networks and platforms they need to power their activism and remake the world.

Our Ways of Being in the World – We believe that another world is not only possible, it is already being built right here and now, in the ways that girls are organising with each other, imagining with each other and pushing us all a little further towards liberation. To build the world that we imagine, a core set of values guide all that we do at Purposeful: Taking bold action; Many ways of knowing; Centering lived expertise; Deep embodiment; Cultivating radical imagination; Joy as resistance; Power in diversity; Rooted in sisterhood.

Our Power-Building Strategies – Our holistic, movement-centred approach works to support girls to live into, amplify and compound their political power. It understands girls’ power-building as holistic and political and in centering the political power of girl activists, we enter all of our work through a power-building lens: Redistributing power assets; Building collective power; Organising power holders; Transforming power structures.

Our vision – Girls are living in safety, dignity and freedom, and the world is transformed.

Our Mission – Girl activists and their allies have access to the resources, networks and platforms they need to power their activism and remake the world for themselves
