In February 2015, Advocacy Training and Resource Center - ATRC has signed Cooperative Agreement with U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) to implement Engagement for Equity Program (E4E Program).

Under objective 3 “Increased protection and awareness of LGBTI community rights” ATRC will support civil society organizations in increasing their capacities for addressing and initiating awareness raising initiatives, changing peoples’ attitudes, improving the legal framework with better implementation of laws, empowering the LGBTI community and promoting greater collaboration across various segments of civil society for protecting the LGBTI community and individuals from discrimination and human rights violations based on sexual orientation and gender identity.

Through this public call, a consultant from South East Europe will be selected to serve as a neutral partner for providing ongoing, intermittent facilitation and technical advice to CSOs receiving grants under Objective 3 on increased protection and awareness of LGBTI community rights.
