FCS concludes joint monitoring tour of projects in Mbeya with a call

The Foundation for Civil Society (FCS) joint monitoring tour of projects in Mbeya region, conducted during the first week of December, has ended with a consortium of farmers organisation in the region, MIICO being urged to aim at building the capacity of its individual network of farmers forums, so that in future the forums can be fully fledged CSOs able to apply for funding at the FCS.

The call was made by the Foundation for Civil Society Executive Director, Mr. John Ulanga, when making his closing remarks at the end of the joint monitoring visit of projects at MIICO office.

“I urge you to concentrate on building the capacity of your farmers’ forums as well, so that at least by the end of your three-year project tenure the forums become fully fledge CSOs able to apply for funding at the FCS and MIICO only provide backstopping to them.

“This will be another great achievement such that there will be other capable individuals doing a project on enhancing Social Accountability for improved services in the agriculture sector - should you not decide to go on with a similar project,” said Mr Ulanga.

MIICO has already reached 12, 198 beneficiaries through its farmers’ forums in the regions of Mbeya and Njombe under the Social Accountability Monitoring project to enhance service delivery in agriculture sector.

This time around participants of the FCS joint tour of projects comprised of some FCS Board of Directors, the Management and representatives from the FCS Development Partners. The Development Partners represented are the UK’s Department for International Development (DFID), Embassy of Norway and the Swiss Development Corporation (SDC).

The joint visit is normally prepared to enable the Development Partners get a feel of projects being implemented by the FCS through their basket funding.
