Job Description

1. Introduction

The Brooke Ethiopia is a leading UK equine welfare charity, which has been working in Ethiopia since 2006 with a country office in Addis Ababa.

The Brooke aims to improve the welfare of working equines, together with the livelihoods of people dependant on these animals.

Brooke Ethiopia (B-Eth) is entering a new strategic phase and by the year 2020, Brooke Ethiopia will sustainably improve the equine welfare of some of the neediest rural and urban equines in Ethiopia.

Although Brooke started its operation in Ethiopia in 2006, direct implementation and working with partners were initiated after 2008 following its 1st strategic plan (2008-12) with a goal of reaching 1 million equines.

Learning from this, its second strategic planning (2011-2015) focused on expanding direct implementation while scaling down its delivery through partnerships.

2. Objectives of the assessment and scope of the assessment


The Brooke feels that our community engagement activity at the community level lacks the proper analysis of gender roles and contribution to the equine animal welfare outcomes we are looking to improve.

The results of the assessment will be used to advise changes to Brooke Ethiopia program activities and implementation methodology.

This gender assessment ToR is aimed at getting expert recommendations for adapting the Brooke Ethiopia program design answering and clarifying the 3 assessment questions:

  • Who does what? Are the roles, responsibilities, and priorities of men and women, both within and outside the household, different?

  • Who owns what? Who controls what? Who has access to what? Are there differences among women and men?

  • If there are differentials in the above two areas, what are the institutional, economic, and social factors that underlie, support, or influence them?

  • What operational models can be helpful to address those differentials given the existing scenario?

    The gender assessment for Brooke Ethiopia has several objectives, which include:

  • Gaining an understanding of gender and power relations between men, women, boys and girls, the division of labour between men and women (who does what work), including domestic (household and reproductive) and community work and who has access to, and control over, resources, with specific attention to Equine welfare and livelihoods

  • Identifying opportunities and barriers to men’s and women’s, young girls and boys’ participation in economic activity and the resulting impact in improving animal welfare (social, economic, legal, political, and cultural) and control over resources

  • Gaining an understanding of current cultural practices which promote and/or hinder gender equality and specifically those that exacerbate or limit gender based violence.

  • Identifying gaps in policy related specifically to women’s equal participation in Animal welfare, including Improving Animal husbandry and management practices, access to credit and markets, capacity to trade and do business, in peace processes, leadership committees and politics generally as well as make use of appropriate technology

  • Considering the differential impact of the initiative on men and women, and identifying consequences to be addressed

  • Outlining the expected risks (including backlash) and develop strategies to minimize these risks

  • Identifying key actions and developing recommendations for additions, adaptations or revisions to the Program design and implementation approach to minimize unintended consequences of gender-related differential impact or identified risks, and to maximize the Program contribution to gender equality including equal participation in and ownership of project outcomes by young men and women, women, girls, boys and men
