FCS conducts information sessions to its grantees, CSO sector

The Foundation for Civil Society (FCS) has conducted countrywide information sessions to its grantees and other members of Civil Society Organisations (CSOs) in different parts of Tanzania - with the aim of keeping the latter abreast of developments within the FCS, and forge ahead together.

The information sessions begun on 8 July and effectively ended on 17 July after having reached CSO participants from hundreds of civil society organisations in different parts of the country.

Key issues raised during the information sessions included: the recitation of the FCS leadership transition - such that after a competitive process in March 2015, Mr. Francis Kiwanga succeeded the retired FCS Executive Director who had successfully completed his tenure of office. 

Also, an account was given on the new FCS Strategic Plan alongside its new thematic areas. The last issue communicated was the apparent FCS Board of Directors’ decision to terminate all the on-going projects that were deemed as long overdue – with an exception of all CSO capacity strengthening interventions, and all other special projects conducted through funds from the ILO, IRC (Wekeza), and EQIPP. Projects on People with Disability (PwDs) engagement in the 2015 elections will also remain intact.

Apparently, during the info sessions, a new call for grants applications was also announced – seeking to work with CSOs on peace maintenance drive, as well as inspiring the youths, women and other special groups to engage effectively in the upcoming general elections.
