The Alliance for Food Sovereignty in Africa (AFSA), supported by the Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency (SIDA), is pleased to announce a call for Expressions of Interest (EOI) to support and facilitate Online Learning and Sharing Sessions on the Application of the Barefoot Guide. These sessions aim to enhance partners’ knowledge of African food systems under the “Transforming the African Food System to Sustainability (TAFS) – My Food is African Project.” This project aspires to inspire African citizens to demand and consume healthy and culturally appropriate food supported by favorable policies by 2026.

We seek proposals from qualified individuals or firms with demonstrated experience in designing and facilitating online learning sessions, a strong understanding of agroecological practices, food sovereignty, and related concepts, and excellent facilitation and communication skills to engage diverse stakeholders. Familiarity with the Barefoot Guide and experience working in Africa or with African stakeholders is highly desirable.

The objectives of the sessions include designing interactive and informative online sessions that engage participants and build interest in agroecological practices and food sovereignty, providing practical learning opportunities related to achieving sustainable African food systems, and fostering collaborative discussions among participants to share experiences, challenges, and best practices in promoting sustainable food systems. Key deliverables include a detailed plan for the sessions, session materials such as presentations and discussion guides, facilitated sessions, and a final report summarizing key outcomes, lessons learned, and recommendations for future sessions.

Interested candidates are invited to submit a letter (up to one page) expressing interest in the consultancy, a short technical proposal (no more than 3 pages) outlining the understanding of the assignment, proposed methodology, timeline, and budget, a general profile of the firm or individual(s) including evidence of previous work done, and CV(s) of the consultant(s) involved in the assignment. Please send your proposals via email to by 5:00 pm (East Africa Time) on Sunday, July 30, 2024. The email should indicate “AFSA _ Online Learning and Sharing Sessions” in the subject line.

For further information about the EOI, please refer to the attached Terms of Reference (TOR). If you have any additional queries or need further clarification on the call, please contact

We look forward to receiving your expressions of interest and working together to enhance the knowledge and advocacy for sustainable African food systems.
