Creative Content Associate CDI

Country: Senegal
Organization: Tostan
Closing date: 25 Dec 2023

Organisation overview

Tostan is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization headquartered in Thies, Senegal, operating in five West African countries and partnering with actors across Africa and around the world through training and mutual learning.

Tostan’s mission is to empower communities to develop and achieve their vision for the future, and inspire large-scale movements leading to dignity for all. Since its founding in 1991, Tostan’s flagship program, the Community Empowerment Program, has supported community-led impacts in education, health, economic empowerment, governance, the environment, and many other areas. Tostan has been particularly proud to play a significant role in the large-scale empowerment of women and girls, the community-led abandonment of harmful practices such as female genital cutting and child marriage, and the expanding partnership between local community leaders and local government in creating sustained change.

Tostan has also built and scaled a platform to share its work with other organizations and has welcomed over 900 development practitioners and local leaders from 49 countries across Africa and around the world to engage in its model. Tostan’s global efforts to champion community leadership, empowering education, and other critical topics have shaped development approaches, policies, and priorities at many levels.

In an increasingly complex, challenging global context, Tostan feels a compelling sense of urgency to build upon this 32-year legacy to support community well-being in new and greater ways. In early 2023 Tostan will launch its Strategy to 2030: In partnership for community well-being. Developed in collaboration with partner communities, local & national government, and supporters from around the globe, this strategy will support breakthroughs in community well-being by engaging new clusters of communities, deepening connections and resources at local level, and catalysing the broader ecosystem of actors that support communities. Partnerships – with communities and with key actors in their ecosystem – are at the heart of realizing this potential. For more information, please visit:
