The Impacting Gender & Nutrition through Innovative Technical Exchange in Agriculture (IGNITE) mechanism is a five-year investment implemented by Tanager, Laterite, and 60 Decibels to strengthen African institutions’ ability to integrate nutrition and gender into their way of doing business and their agriculture interventions. IGNITE works with African agricultural institutions – which we call clients–from private sector, NGOs and Governments. Our clients are primarily located in four countries: Ethiopia, Tanzania, Nigeria and Burkina Faso.
To broaden and deepen our support in these four countries, IGNITE seeks to cultivate a network of local service providers (LSPs). These LSPs will work with IGNITE from 2021-2023 to support nutrition and gender integration in agriculture institutions and programs using the learning, models, and tools developed under IGNITE.
Tanager seeks proposals from qualified local service providers in Nigeria who can combine an existing skill set in gender and/or nutrition integration with IGNITE tools and approaches to deliver both immediate and long-term support to IGNITE clients in West Africa and especially Nigeria. Selected LSPs will expand IGNITE’s reach and deepen impact by providing current and future IGNITE clients with high-quality services. A network of established LSPs will ensure that IGNITE clients and other similar agriculture institutions can access and benefit from gender and nutrition integration services even after IGNITE ends.
