ShelterBox Overview

We work with people all over the world who have lost their homes to all kinds of disasters – floods, earthquakes, hurricanes, conflicts. We go where people are vulnerable, so you’ll often find us in challenging places that are overlooked by others. But wherever we are, we know one thing is always true: hope grows when you have a place to call home.

Our work is informed by our current strategy which runs from 2022 to 2027. During this period, our overarching organisational goals are to:

  • Scale up to meet humanitarian need.

  • Develop a framework to critically assess ShelterBox’s current gender mainstreaming during partner selection and engagement as well as the design and delivery of our responses.
  • Assess a sample of projects using the framework and agreed criteria.
  • Assess the gender and inclusion knowledge, skills, and confidence of ShelterBox International
  • Programmes Department (IPD) staff and identify training needs in these areas.
  • Write up evidenced findings in a report with actionable recommendations and pathways for ShelterBox to strengthen gender mainstreaming.

In Phase 2 the consultant will:

  • Facilitate the development of a capacity strengthening plan that addresses identified gaps and weaknesses in a coherent and prioritised plan, that links to ShelterBox’s Project Cycle Management guide and that provides guidance in developing tools that can be used to enhance gender and inclusion mainstreaming.
  • Deliver training sessions/ workshops according to the plan.
