TIME for SRHR
TIME is grounded in the understanding that the SRHR community is ready to move towards more locally led development, but that more needs to be done to truly shift ownership and decision-making to impact communities across the globe. One INGO can’t do this alone, but if we work as a community of INGOs, NNGOs, and donors, we can chart a course together that is sustainable, resilient, and equitable.
TIME Phase 1 (October 2021–December 2022) examined the current ecosystem SRHR INGOs operate in today, to better envision what their role might look like tomorrow.
TIME Phase 2 (April–December 2023) will focus on building a re-imagined vision for the future while developing a multi-dimensional roadmap that gives INGOs and NNGOs the tools, opportunity, and resources to make meaningful change. Activities will include:
- ‘Vision of the Future’ Working Group: What will the future look like for SRHR INGOs? This group of forward-thinking INGO CEO’s will work together to outline a collective vision for a reimagined global INGO SRHR sector.
- ‘Core Concepts’ Working Group: One key finding from the first year of TIME was that there were different definitions and understanding around various terms and concepts depending on where you sat in the broader ecosystem (organization type, location). This group of leaders and practitioners will seek to outline core concepts from the perspective of INGOs of how they are defining these key terms. The facilitated sessions will encourage collaboration and will seek to move beyond simple definitions, focusing on the nuances of their practical applications.
- ‘Roadmap’ Working Group: This working group seeks to provide direction to those INGOs who are looking for guidance on how organizational restructuring or transformation can be achieved. The group will identify the key components of what a roadmap could entail, which can then be leveraged and adapted for individual and/or collective reforms.
- Online Community of Practice: A shared online space to network and build a community of trust, access tools, and resources, stay up to date on the activities of TIME, and access opportunities to provide feedback on working group outputs.
