MCO-AFE is launching the call to receive marketing bids for its leading project SANADI.
The M-Coalition (MCO) is the only regional network devoted to promote and support LGBTIQ health in the Middle East and North Africa Region (MENA). MCO was founded in 2014 and works through advocacy, information exchange, knowledge production, networking, and capacity building. The M-Coalition strives to involve members of the LGBTQ community and people living with HIV and other Key Populations at all levels of its strategy, policy development and implementation, and internal governing processes. M-Coalition is currently the health department of the Arab Foundation for Freedoms and Equality.
The Arab Foundation for Freedoms and Equality (AFE) is a regional organization based in MENA which encourages and supports sexual health, sexuality, gender and bodily rights movements in the Middle East and North Africa through capacity building, knowledge production, protection and advocacy.
Sanadi 2.0 is a complex activity which puts together different aspects of service delivery, knowledge, networking and emergency preparedness. By working together with professionals and different partners in MENA and beyond we are able to improve service delivery, specifically for key populations and to equip activists with tools and knowledge to better respond to emergencies and unconventional situations.
We are looking for individuals who thrive on learning experiences and communication to take on new positions for SANADI 2.0!
In these challenging times, we are presented with an opportunity to continuously strengthen community cohesion and our collective responsibility towards society. We have witnessed the importance of one another, particularly due to the disparity in governmental support. In the MENA region, we see this even more concerning health and the LGBTQIA+ community. The new pandemic has shown the vulnerability of our health systems and that of our standard civil society programming.
SANADI- which translates to “my support”- is a project aimed at facilitating communication and access to HIV and sexual health services around the MENA region. Launching in 2016, it highlighted the vital importance of preserving and facilitating the access for LGBTQ+ individual
s to health services. Due to the success of SANADI, M-Coalition and AFE have decided to expand it into an even bigger platform that enables the community to have more reach, services, and upgrades through an even friendlier user portal.
SANADI 2.0 will add precision and efficiency, focusing on bettering services by strengthening the skills of the people behind the latter.
MCO-AFE is offering a multitude of work avenues, ranging from national positions, to regional and global. We are looking for people who consider themselves active advocates for innovative change in the world. People who consider social change an act of giving back rather than an act of giving, and who thrive in collaboration and exchanging knowledge and experience.
