120 CSOs trained on how to manage new FCS grants

The Foundation for Civil Society (FCS) has offered a mandatory Manage Your Grant training (MYG) training to its newly approved grantees – being the first one to be offered in the year 2016, and also in the new FCS Strategic Plan 2016-2020.

The training has attracted participants from a total of 120 new grantee organisations from different parts of the country and was conducted in Dodoma from 26 – 28 September 2016.

Also, the new grants to be awarded, worth TZS 5.8 billion, are expected to reach out to a million of Tanzanians in different parts of the country, as well as inspire better results in sub-result areas of citizen’s participation, quality of policy, accountable decision making, and effective public service delivery.

During the MYG training the FCS Executive Director, Mr. Francis Kiwanga said: “the new grantees should ensure better use of the funds given, since they are part of the generous support from the Development Partners. These development grants are purely our fellows’ tax payers’ money. Therefore, they belong to the poor communities in need and not for a few unfaithful individuals.”
 
Current FCS Development Partners include the UK’s Department of International Development (DFID), Swiss Development Cooperation (SDC), Embassy of Denmark/DANIDA, and NORAD.

The MYG training therefore seeks to address on key issues around grants management, such as project designing and management, financial management, outcomes and output reporting, as well as Monitoring and Evaluation - in view of empowering the new grantees with the technical ability to implement their projects effectively.

During the training, participants had the opportunity to review their project documents, which are primarily part of the grant-contract attachments. The training also seeks to streamline the projects’ attachments to be more result-focused with acceptable levels of consistence between project outcomes, outputs, activities, budget framework, work plans and Monitoring & Evaluation frameworks.
