World University Service of Canada (WUSC) is a leading Canadian international development organization focusing on three programmatic areas: Economic Opportunities, Education, and Empowerment. Our vision is a better world for all young people. It is a more inclusive, equitable, and sustainable world in which all young people, especially women and refugees, are empowered to secure a good quality of life for themselves, their families, and their communities.
WUSC currently works in over 25 countries across Africa, Asia, the Middle East, and Latin America, with an annual budget of approximately CAD $45 million. Globally, we partner with a network of higher education institutions, civil society organizations, private sector partners, professionals, students, volunteers, faculty, and community leaders that work with us to achieve our mission.
In Kenya, WUSC is working in partnership with Windle International Kenya (WIK) to implement the “Learning through Education and Access to Skills for Employment” project (the LEAP Project). The ultimate outcome of this project is to increase the empowerment of adolescent girls and young women in Kalobeyei Settlement, Kakuma Refugee Camp, and the surrounding host communities in Turkana County, Kenya. The project will enhance education opportunities for adolescent girls, and will also provide access to gender-responsive training in Kalobeyei.
Objective: Translation of IEC materials from English to specified languages (Kiswahili, Turkana, and Juba-Arabic)
As part of the LEAP program, WUSC and WIK are adapting the Power to Girls methodology, an innovative approach to girls’ empowerment and violence prevention. All materials for Power to Girls were developed in Uganda and Haiti and therefore need to be adapted to the Kenyan context. This includes translating the language of the IEC materials (posters and comic strips) from English to local languages for effective dissemination and communication in the communities in which LEAP operates.
· Translating IEC materials in specified languages (Posters and comic series). This contains several posters and 2 comic series, totaling 10 separate documents.
