FCS provides new TZS 5.8 billion grants to CSOs

The Foundation for Civil Society (FCS) under its new 2016-2020 Strategic Plan has provided grants to a total of 120 Civil Society Organisations (CSOs) working in different parts of Tanzania under the area of Governance and Accountability. The new grants worth TZS 5.8 billion are provided to implement projects in a period of six months.
The funded CSOs are expected to reach out to a million of Tanzanians in different parts of the country as well as inspire better results in the following sub-result areas, including: citizen’s participation; improved quality of policy; accountable decision making; and effective public service delivery.
Intervention areas/ sectors to be supported in these grants to CSOs include: Education; Water; Land Rights; fight against Gender Based Violence; People with Disability, Youths and Women Empowerment.
According to internal FCS procedures, all grantees have to first undergo the mandatory Manage Your Grant (MYG) training so as to enable them fine-tune their project indicators, expected outcomes, as well as budgets. Also, the MYG allows the grantees to prepare plans of action for activities as well as monitoring and evaluation tools to ensure results are well captured. The MYG training will be held from 26-28 September 2016 in Dodoma.
Towards the end of MYG training representatives of the grantee organisations will be tested on their training modules proficiency, such that upon successful completion, they will be made to sign contracts for the immediate implementation of the funded projects.
