SAPPIN in partnership with Anglo American are designing a curriculum for a gender transformation programme as part of a consortium.
Targeting service providers, in particular frontline workers - i.e. those engaging directly with communities as well as Anglo American Social Performance Staff, this curriculum will ensure that all involved:
Phase 1: Inception
Phase 2: Pre-sensing
Phase 3: Sensing phase (in-depth interviews/ focus groups)
Phase 4: Stakeholder engagement
Phase 5: Meaning-making
Phase 6: Curriculum drafting and platform development phase
The consortium finalized phase 3 in December and are currently underway with Phase 4.
In Phase 4 Phaphama, ISS and SAPPIN (for this consortium Phaphama and ISS are independent) are in the design phase, where they are currently discussing possible assumptions and risks to the design of the curriculum.
Representatives meet weekly to identify required information and assess acquired data. Interventions at hand are kept in consideration, as they could help in meeting the curriculum’s objectives.
Between meetings, they will be working to collect information and materials and refining their ideas, possibly testing some of these thoughts or ideas on people that have been interviewed.
They will go through all the information obtained and work towards refining the process, so that they can address the risks and assumptions that have been identified.
SAPPIN together with the rest of consortium look forward to bringing this curriculum to fruition.
