The European Union (EU) and the United Nations have embarked on a new multi-year programme, the EU-UN Spotlight Initiative. The Spotlight Initiative aims to support transformative change on the ground to end violence against women and girls and harmful practices, in numerous countries globally. The Initiative comes with the highest level of commitment globally and will be governed by the UN Deputy Secretary General and the Vice President of the EU Commission. The Initiative is built around six pillars developed after an extensive global theory of change exercise. The pillars are: 1) Laws and Policies; 2) Institutions; 3) Prevention and Social Norms; 4) Services; 5) Data; and 6) Women’s movement. Mozambique is one of the participating eight countries in the Africa region and will have interventions in all the six pillars. The Spotlight Initiative’s investment in Mozambique aims to contribute to a country where every woman and girl is free from all forms of SGBV and harmful practices and can enjoy sexual and reproductive health and rights. The programme will operate in three provinces in Mozambique and at the central level, in accordance with the scope of the Spotlight Africa Programme, focus on: sexual and gender-based violence (SGBV), early marriage (with linkages to the eradication of harmful practices) and sexual and reproductive health rights (SRHR).
The Programme Coordinator (P4) is responsible for the day-to-day SLI programming including planning, implementation, communication and visibility and reporting including technical guidance and oversight. The PC will specifically oversee the provision of technical guidance by the team i.e. ensure that the activities specified within the programming document are carried out in such a manner as to achieve the objectives and assist other SLI staff, the LE, RUNOs and Associated Agencies to perform the roles assigned to them and to ensure quality assurance of SLI.
