Consultancy services: Needs Assessment of the Tunisian Community of Action

Location: Tunis 

Duration: 1 month 

Closing date for application: December 15, 2022 


The Association for the Promotion of the Right to Difference (ADD), with support from Hivos, is  facilitating the Free to Be Me program in Tunisia, a multi-year program aiming to bring together  organizations and individuals that will contribute to advancing LGBTQI+ leadership in advocating for  social and economic rights and bring an alliance of organizations that are experienced and strongly  committed to improving the lives of LGBTQI+ people in Tunisia through a Community of Action (CoA).  The ADD is commissioning a needs assessment to develop a detailed understanding of the Tunisian  CoA and identify priority actions that could maximize the project’s contribution to the global and  localized Theory of Change of the F2BM program.  

About Free to be Me 

Free To Be Me is an ambitious, daring and innovative 5-year program that will help build a vibrant LGBTIQ+ movement that is confident and capable to lobby and advocate for their human and  economic rights. Our alliance comprises three consortium members 

– Hivos, ILGA World, and Positive Vibes and three technical partners Sogicampaigns, the Global  Interfaith Network (GIN), and Workplace Pride. 

Together we will coach, accompany, fund and train LGBTIQ+ persons and organizations to influence  norms and attitudes, generate (public) support, and promote laws, policies and regulations that  recognize, respect and protect LGBTIQ+ people’s rights. Brave and persistent LGBTIQ+ activists around  the world have built communities, taken to the streets, filed lawsuits and advocated for their rights,  in the past decades. Thanks to their lobby and advocacy, “sexual orientation” is enshrined in protective  laws in more than 80 countries. In many countries media and cultural productions are more diverse,  while allies such as human rights and women’s organizations, progressive religious 

leaders, large and small businesses, social influencers and creatives increasingly and publicly – support  LGBTIQ+ rights. 

However, there remains a lot to fight for. Consensual same-sex intimacy is criminalized in 69 countries,  and access to appropriate IDs is impossible for many trans and intersex people. Legal provisions are  used to harass and detain LGBTQ+ people, while legislation that explicitly protects them remains  absent. Intersex people are subjected to medical and societal abuse. And, due to a lack of meaningful,  coordinated efforts, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, and sex characteristics  (SOGIESC)are still excluded from many socioeconomic development agendas, such as the Sustainable  Development Goals (SDGs). The programme is implemented in 14 countries including Kenya, Uganda,  Rwanda, Mozambique, Zimbabwe, Nigeria, Ghana, Tunisia, Egypt, Lebanon, Jordan, The Philippines,  Indonesia and The Netherlands. 

The project seeks to achieve the following 4 outcomes:


Outcome 1: In scoping and core countries LGBTIQ+ civil society is vibrant, stronger, more self – confident and diverse and in core countries also sustainably resourced, with the capacity to lead on  legal and policy changes 

Outcome 2: Societal leaders, influencers, media and the general public increasingly and openly  support the rights of LGBTIQ+ people (mainly core countries). 

Outcome 3: At least five core countries have made significant legal or policy progress – changed  abusive or criminalizing laws, ended impunity and/or adopted protective laws. 

Outcome 4: Socioeconomic actors implement activities/ change policies promoting equal socio economic rights of LGBTIO+ people. 

Objective and scope of the consultancy 

The overall objective of the consultancy is to grasp a holistic understanding of the needs, gaps, and  aspirations of the CoA by conducting individual interviews with the latter. The final report should  encompass the different needs of the interviewees and provide policy recommendations and strategic  actions at a micro (public and private institutions) and macro (the CoA) to improve compliance of  F2BM Tunisia with the outcomes listed above. 

Specific objectives 

– Design and carry out a needs assessment to fulfill the above-mentioned objective through  desk review of the localized Theory of Change and annual plan of the Tunisian CoA; – Conduct stakeholder interviews with CoA members to identify their collective needs; – Detect gaps within the CoA (initial mapping, representativity, potential power dynamics,  etc); 

– Suggest mechanisms and draw recommendations on how to fill those needs; – Develop a comprehensive report on the assessment that includes a situational analysis of  LGBTQI+ advocacy in Tunisia, existing initiatives and practices that address queer related  human rights concerns as well as needs findings and recommendations (micro and macro). 


– Inception report with detailed study design, methodology and work plan;

– Desk Review Report and field research plan based on desk review; 

– A final detailed report containing the needs of the CoA and recommendations.
