CALL FOR PROPOSALS: BUDGET MONITORING TRAINING (LESOTHO/NAMIBIA/ BOTSWANA)
Closing date: 23h59 on 25 May 2021
The AIDS Foundation of South Africa (AFSA) is a Durban-based NGO that acts as an interface between Donors and Community Based Organisations (CBO’s) working in the HIV/AIDS sector by placing donor funds with strategically selected CBOs, in South Africa, and providing them with ongoing, technical support & capacity building.
AFSA's Sexual and Reproductive Health Rights (SRHR) Programme manages the Sex Rights Africa Network which is an open association of SRHR practitioners. SRAN exists to share evidence and strengthen advocacy and action to realise SRHR for all in Southern Africa and globally. The www.sexrightsafrica.net platform is managed by the AIDS Foundation of South Africa and supported by the Embassy of Sweden in Lusaka, Zambia.
AFSA requests proposals from organisations based in Lesotho, Namibia and Botswana to host a Budget Monitoring for SRHR Advocacy Training in their countries.
While our governments have made commitments in international and domestic spheres to ensure universal access to sexual and reproductive health and reduce maternal mortality, statistics show that in many of our region’s countries, there is still a large outstanding debt related to sexual and reproductive rights.
The overall objective of this training is to build the capacity of Civil Society Organisations to effectively monitor budgets for health related to SRHR, thus enabling them to demanding accountability from relevant stakeholders.
The workshop should further aim to help organizations identify the public resources assigned to the implementation of specific policy changes, and design strategies to monitor these expenditures, so that the organisations have the proper instruments to demand greater transparency and accountability from their governments on sexual and reproductive health and rights.
- The selected organisation will lead the design and implementation of the workshop as contracted.
- Together with AFSA identify and select local participants for the workshop
- Demonstrate the ability to pre-finance the activity.
- Existing capacity, including being part of a Network or Coalition, to implement the activity at no extra costs. (i.e costs should just go towards hosting and not staff or consultant fees)
- Use funds following the contractual agreement and maintain accounting records in accordance to standards agreed in writing with AFSA;
- Submit reports outlining training deliverables and all financial implications
- Monitor and evaluate the impact of the workshop.
- Provide evidence in a form of pictures/videos and a narrative report of the training.
