Seeking research organizations to co-lead cross-sectoral Youth Landscape Analysis in Malawi

The USAID Youth Excel: Our Knowledge, Leading Change program is conducting a youth landscape analysis (YLA) aimed at establishing a deep understanding of the current youth context in Malawi. The analysis will provide robust insights into how young Malawians live the challenges they face, their aspirations, and their recommendations for action to enable them to lead healthy, informed, and productive lives.

Purpose

Youth Excel seeks applications from Malawian research organizations and higher education institutions to conduct data collection and analysis for a youth landscape analysis.

The selected research organization will codesign the research methodology, conduct research activities using tools codeveloped with the IREX research team, coproduce a high-quality research report summarizing the key findings and presenting recommendations for contextually appropriate cross-sectoral interventions to improve policies and approaches to the empowerment of young people.
