2. About this call for proposal
This call for proposal invites Tanzanian civil society organizations (from both mainland and Zanzibar – Unguja and Pemba) to apply for grants to implement good governance programmes in their areas of locality. FCS Governance programme is developed in line with the understanding that there is strong and intricate nexus between poverty, inequality and governance. It is thus premised on the fact that, effective public governance on one hand helps to promote economic prosperity and social cohesion; reduce poverty; improve ecological sustainability; and on the other deepens confidence in government. It is thus worthy noting also that without good governance, bad policy choices will be made, the people would have neither voice nor power, and the economy may likely deteriorate. Similarly, when poverty and inequality persist, they limit citizen participation, threaten peace and co-existence, weaken political processes and promote deficient governance.
