Project Overview and Role:
Consultancy for the documentation of lessons learnt and Success Stories in NPI EXPAND’s COVID-19 Response Grants in Tanzania
NPI EXPAND Overview
The New Partnerships Initiative (NPI) Expanding Health Partnerships—NPI EXPAND Project—is a global five-year (2019-2024) U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) funded project that supports locally-driven efforts to increase the availability and utilization of high-quality health and education services. In line with USAID’s local capacity development strategy, NPI EXPAND invests in new and underutilized local partners (NUPs) and strengthens their capacity to strategize, plan, and implement programs with USAID funds. Enhanced participation of capable local organizations to increase demand for and to deliver high-quality, high impact services will enable governments to meet crucial goals equitably and sustainably. NPI EXPAND will also catalyze opportunities to scale up innovative interventions by strengthening the capacity of NUPs with varying levels of capabilities and exposure to USAID.
NPI EXPAND and COVID19 Response in Tanzania
As a response to the COVID-19 pandemic in Tanzania, NPI EXPAND implemented a grants program that supported three new and underutilized local partner NGOs: Mwanza Outreach Care and Support Organization (MOCSO), Network Against Female Genital Mutilation (NAFGEM), and Pastoral Activities and Services to People with AIDS Dar es Salaam Archdiocese (PASADA) for about 6-8 months in July 2020-April 2021. The three NGOs supported WORTH Yetu community groups to produce and sell non-medical masks and liquid soap and also to implement risk communication and community engagement (RCCE) activities to prevent the spread of COVID-19 in their respective communities. The WORTH Yetu Groups, consisting of women whom are supporting orphans and vulnerable children under another USAID-funded HIV project, operate as self-help groups engaged in income generating activities. The three NGO partners, through the grants, supported a total of 25 groups. NPI EXPAND also provided a subaward T-MARC Tanzania to support the WORTH Yetu groups in business planning and social marketing of respective masks and sanitation products. The NPI EXPAND support of RCCE activities ended in February 2021, masks and soap production and sales ended in April 30, 2021 while T-MARC sub-award ended in June 30, 2021.
Purpose of the Consultancy
