About the Intersex Human Rights Fund

Astraea launched the Intersex Human Rights Fund (IHRF) in 2015 to honor the resilience, creativity and growth of intersex activism and to ensure the human rights of intersex people. The IHRF responds to the significant gap in funding for intersex issues by resourcing intersex-led activism, building the capacity of intersex groups, raising visibility, and driving resources to the intersex movement. In 2016, the IHRF supported 32 intersex-led groups in 27 countries working to ensure the human rights, bodily autonomy, physical integrity and self-determination of intersex people.


Astraea seeks a consultant to provide M&E support for an externally-funded project that seeks to strengthen the capacity and connectedness of intersex activists and the intersex movement. The consultancy should include the following components:

  • Conduct internal needs assessment using pre-existing data to determine baseline in relation to expected outcomes and identify priority areas for capacity building

  • Develop and implement an internal grantee capacity rubric

  • Develop pre/post surveys for intersex activists who attend international and regional convenings

  • Review the IHRF’s proposal and report forms to integrate relevant questions

  • Support the IHRF program officer to collect data from grantee partners and advisors

  • Analyze and code data and produce findings that capture the outputs and outcomes of the program

  • Provide M&E inputs for quarterly funder reporting

  • Conduct an end-of-project review to document changes and generate learning


Expressions of interest are due on May 12, 2017. Astraea will select an evaluator by May 19, 2017. Work on the consultancy should begin immediately and last through July 31, 2018, the duration of the project.
