Who We Are
We are a global creative non-profit combining expertise in media, mobile, brand, and international development, a unique mix of skills we use to solve global problems in a new way. Started by the Nike Foundation in 2004, we are now an independent organisation working from nine global locations in more than 50 countries where girls are marginalised and vulnerable, focused on Africa and Asia.

We use our in-depth understanding of girls’ real needs so that they are enabled to make choices about their health, education, and economic future. We use multiple touchpoints for branded story-telling and participation that millions of girls, and boys, love and interact with – from apps that build skills to TV dramas that explore vital issues to magazines written and distributed by girls.

We help girls change their lives by tackling social, cultural, and gender norms – leveraging digital technologies to create change through creative content that engages and entertains audiences – designed to change and shift attitudes, knowledge and behaviours in tangible, measurable ways.

Our work is supported and funded by a wide range of people and organisations, from governments and philanthropists to NGOs and corporates. Recent examples include GAVI (The Vaccine Alliance), Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, Meta, UNICEF, the Children’s Investment Fund Foundation (CIFF), Vodafone Foundation, Australia’s Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade (DFAT), Nutrition International, and United States Agency for International Development (USAID).

For over a decade, we have been building social behaviour change programming and technologies that aim to create a safer and more accessible world for young women and girls, using the insights and experiences they share with us.

By successfully leveraging Girl Effect’s branded media (drama, talk shows, SMS texts and social media) to inform and empower girls, Girl Effect has increased the uptake of HPV vaccine and use of health services more widely in Tanzania, Ethiopia, Malawi and Rwanda. In the coming years, we will be expanding this work in Tanzania and Ethiopia, working in partnership with the local government to continue increasing the uptake of HPV vaccines, health services, and routine immunisation vaccines for children of young mothers and parents.

We will build on our existing branded media platforms in markets such as Tujibebe in Tanzania. Tujibebe launched in 2019, and in the past year, Tujibebe has reached over 1.7 million girls with information about HPV. Girls (13-15 years) who were exposed to Tujibebe content (as a consumer) had shown an increase in knowledge and attitudes:

More than half of girls (50%) who listened to the Tujibebe radio show (consumer) were aware of the HPV vaccine compared to only 9% of girls who had not listened to it (non-consumer).
After listening to the radio show, 96% of girls (consumers) reported willingness to have the HPV vaccine compared to only 77% among those who did not listen to the radio show (non-consumers).
What we are looking for:
We have recently researched the barriers to vaccine uptake across Tanzania and Ethiopia. Starting with Tanzania, we want to take these insights into a Design Sprint with the Girl Effect team and build potential concepts, solutions, or prototype ideas to address vaccine uptake barriers. We are looking for a consultant to kick off the process by leading the project team through a workshop, eventually leading to developing an efficient, effective, user-friendly prototype concept/ideas to fulfil the project objectives.

The UX designer would need to design and facilitate a design sprint workshop with the Girl Effect team in Tanzania. The 5-day design sprint workshop outcomes are:A shared understanding of the user’s needs, challenges & motivations
A (clearer) mutual understanding of the problem at hand (evidenced by a succinct and clear focal problem statement for the project)
Solution ideas/concepts generated and analysed/prioritised according to a logical & relevant set of criteria
Prototype recommendations (including plans and/or considerations for testing) from prioritised ideas/concepts

Deliverables:Proposal of Design Sprint Approach (including the types of participants to be involved)
Working in collaboration with the Girl Effect Team, plan and facilitate a Design Sprint workshop spanning no longer than 5 days to present research findings, define the problem, brainstorm prototype concepts, prioritise ideas and approaches
Presentation of final workshop results and prototype recommendations
High-level implementation or testing plan for recommended or prioritised prototypes
