Hey Fam, 

As we hop, skip and jump into the long weekend we ask you to spare a much needed prayer for not just our country but the whole world.

In this week's newsletter, we bring some music to promote peace and change, some 'magic-type' financials revealed by the 2020 AG's report and take a look at our nation's state of affairs. Also check out CIASA's by-election report highlights in our CSO Spotlight and some news from over there.

P.S: We are still deciding if we are celebrating Easter or Independence Day on Tuesday next week. Either way, we won't be in your inbox on the 19th, so see you on the 26th April 2022.


Deuces,
The Kubatana Team
“We will stand, we will win” by Ukrainian artist Sasha Korban
The puzzle

By Viktoria Ponkrashkina, 16

I thought it was a dream,
but it happened to be real.
The torture of the war
And overwhelming fear.
I want it all to go away
Diffuse in shining sun
And troubles blown from our day
By friendly clouds, so far
I want people out of cellars
Living to the full
Not afraid of their jailers
Sleeping soundly.
I want to throw away all the pieces
From the puzzle of this cruel war
So children don’t play with them
I want everyone to be happy and smile!

I believe in a happy Ukraine
And the new life beginning today!
I believe we can forget about war
It will be swept away from the shore.

Instruments of Change 

In Lubero, a rural territory in Kivu, DRC, Moise Kisuba believes that his hand crafted musical instruments can make a difference. Conflict in this region of the country has left thousands of people dead or displaced, and over 130 armed groups are active in the area. The majority of young people are unemployed, leaving them vulnerable to political co-option and manipulation. Kisuba’s workshop has a twofold mission - to equip young people with practical skills, and to give local musicians access to instruments that they otherwise would not be able to afford. Local musician Ringo Ramazani Muhinho, couldn’t afford guitars for his band. After approaching Kusiba, who agreed to a payment plan, Muhinho is playing rumba. Music offers respite from the crisis, and is also used by local reggae musician Muhindo Ngoyamwaka Samuel to promote peace: “I call on people not to collaborate with the enemy,” he says, “or I invite armed groups to lay down their arms in my songs.” Kisuba’s workshop has supplied instruments to influential artists, and is now training their 5th apprentice since it opened its doors in 2018. Through the impact of music, Kisuba believes he can be part of the change his region so badly needs to see.

AG’s 2020 Report for Appropriation Accounts, Finance Accounts, Revenue Statements and Fund Accounts: Lowlights

Finally the long overdue 2020 Attorney General (AG)’s report for Appropriation Accounts, Finance Accounts, Revenue Statements and Fund Accounts is available, what a long wait! From disappearing spoons to vanishing cars, government ministries and local authorities seem to be competing for the 'most errant entity' title. We must say the competition seems tight! Once again, local authorities across the country were exposed for abusing millions of dollars to the prejudice of ratepayers. Rampant corruption and bad corporate governance were reported at councils, including Harare, Bulawayo, Masvingo, Gweru, Chiredzi, Gokwe, Nyanga and Chitungwiza. As has become the norm, the fraudulent sale of housing and commercial stands was highlighted as well as shambolic accounting systems which “facilitate opaque transactions.” Gokwe Rural District Council stood out for allocating stands to minors. Unsurprisingly government ministries were rapped for their propensity to spend without paperwork, collectively they failed to properly account for a massive US$1.3 billion. For example, Treasury is said to have made “policy and administration” payments of US$18.2 million and BWP8.3 million for “animal production, health, extension and services'' respectively on behalf of the Ministry of Agriculture but the ministry itself has no record of these payments. Not to be outdone was the ZRP, who for the second-year running has failed to produce financial records for 16 farms to facilitate auditing. Furthermore, the Home Affairs ministry is also said to have failed to produce payment vouchers, receipts or confirmation that suppliers of goods and services had actually been engaged and paid. We wonder who will police the police? The Meteorological Services Department might take the cup though, in 2016 they made a part payment of USD$100 000 towards acquisition of a hydrogen generator which is necessary for accurate weather forecasting. In February 2020 when they were audited, processing of the balance of payment and delivery of the generator were still outstanding. Also exposed by the report are several expenditure variances by a number of departments between the figures reported in the Appropriation Account and those in the Public Financial Management System (PFMS), the computerized system used by Government to process payments as well as the absence of reconciliations which made it difficult to validate the accuracy of expenditure. The AG, in her report, also underscored how dual payments amounting to $9 384 085 were made to suppliers in 2020 resulting in wasted funds, at the time the audit was concluded in 2021, refunds had not yet been done!

State of affairs . . . 
  • Residents of Chingwizi are still living without access to basic services eight years after they were relocated by the government pending the construction of the Tugwi-Mukosi dam. Although they were promised 17 hectare plots by the government, most are still residing on small pieces of land which cannot sustain their food needs. According to the Masvingo Centre for Research Advocacy and Community Development (MACRAD) thousands of Chingwizi villagers are living without access to healthcare services, clean drinking water, or accessible education. Prior to the March 26 by-elections, ZANU-PF secretary for legal affairs, Paul Mangwana, was campaigning in the Chingwizi area and instructed village heads to deliver votes for the ruling party. Chapter 15 of the Constitution prevents traditional leaders from acting in a partisan manner or furthering the interests of any political party. 
     
  • Speaking at the Geneva Summit for Human Rights and Democracy, journalist Hopewell Chin’ono said that 2,500 women, in Zimbabwe, die annually due to pregnancy related complications. Last week, Newsday reported that the wards at Parirenyatwa’s Mbuya Nehanda maternity wing are full beyond capacity, with expectant mothers sleeping on the floor of the hospital. According to Parirenyatwa Group of Hospitals spokesperson Lenos Dhire, the overwhelmed state of the maternity wards is due to a “weak referral system due to malfunctioning of the City of Harare clinics” that require patients to pay a fee for admission. “There is a high turnover of midwives, but the available staff is working hard to offer an acceptable level of service to the expecting mothers” Dhire said. On behalf of some Harare residents, ZLHR has asked Harare City Council to urgently ensure that expecting women have access to adequate maternal health services at polyclinics in line with Section 76 of the Constitution.
     
  • Zimbabwe Prisons and Correctional Services Commissioner General Moses Chihobvu has said that Zimbabwe’s Prisons are overwhelmed with an increasing number of mental health patients. Section 68 of the Mental Health Act provides for the establishment of Mental Health Hospital Boards that are tasked with reviewing the cases of inmates for release. However, according to the Commissioner General, the board has not been sitting regularly to assess its mentally ill prisoners for release. Many prisoners, some of whom have long since recovered from illnesses such as post-natal depression, have been incarcerated for an extended period of time awaiting review by the board. Chikurubi Prison has capacity to house 150 mentally ill inmates, but currently houses over 500. 


Understanding Voter Apathy in Zimbabwe
Zimbabwe conducted the long-awaited by-elections on 26 March 2022 which saw contestation for 122 local government and 28 House of Assembly seats. The seats fell vacant for reasons including parliamentary recalls and death of incumbents. Citizen in Action Southern Africa (CIASA) has published a post-election review which gives an overview of voter turnout and other dynamics during the by-elections. According to CIASA, the elections were not only characterised by developments and events that have always been typical of Zimbabwean elections, this time, new issues also emerged. The publication highlights the prevalence of voter apathy evident in the fact that only an estimated 35% of voters took part in the plebiscite. Voter apathy can be described as the abstaining from elections by individuals as they feel that their participation will not bring about change. The foregoing can be indicative of “a lack of feeling of personal responsibility, a passivity and indifference for political affairs.”  It is the finding of the report that social factors may influence turnout by limiting the access of voters to political information. The report also observes that people alienated from the political processes are less likely to vote as well. According to CIASA, in Zimbabwe, turnout is higher among those with lower income, lower education, blue-collar workers, men, middle-aged and older voters, those with closer community ties, rural voters and members of organizations. The report zeroes in on how political rally attendance does not equate to voter turnout on polling day due to factors that include the transporting of supporters from other constituencies for rallies as well as that rallies are attended by all sorts of people, including unregistered, below 18 and even non-members of the political organizations. Recommendations proffered to mitigate voter apathy in future elections include voter education, voter mobilization, localised campaigns, and the introduction of new voting methods like postal and electronic voting which can be more convenient to some voters.

News from over there . . .

Justice for Sankara
A military tribunal in Burkina Faso has sentenced exiled former president Blaise Compaoré to life for the murder of Thomas Sankara. Sankara was gunned down, four years after he took power in a coup, along with 12 colleagues in the west African nation’s capital, Ouagadougou, at the age of 37. This ruling marks the first conviction made for Sankara’s murder since his death three decades ago. Compaoré, who lives in Ivory Coast, was tried in absentia along with his former head of security Hyacinthe Kafando and army commander Gilbert Diendéré. “The judges have done their jobs and I am satisfied. Of course, I wished the main suspects would be here before the judges,” Sankara’s wife told the Associated Press after the verdict. “It is not good that people kill other people and stop the process of development of a country without being punished.” Compare fueled speculations about his role in Sankara’s death by shutting down attempts to have the murder investigated and introducing legislation that prevented him from being prosecuted. Many in Burkina Faso hope that this conviction will pave the way for investigations into the killing of Norbert Zongo, a Burkinabe journalist who exposed corruption and impunity under Compaore’s rule.

Journalism is not a Crime 
In Malawi, journalist Godfrey Gondwe, head of the Platform for Investigative Journalism (PIJ) was arrested and detained when he refused to reveal his source for an article exposing corrupt contracts being serviced by government. Police seized Gondwe’s phones and laptops, and held him in custody, releasing him six hours later. The police retained Gondwe’s equipment overnight, and  later claimed that Gondwe was just  held for “interviews”. Gondwe’s colleague, investigative journalist Golden Matonga, reported that Malawi’s attorney general warned that action would be taken against the author of the article, which upset a number of powerful people. In his campaign for election, Malawi’s president Lazarus Chakwera made sweeping promises to deal with corruption when he came to power. Although some positive steps have been taken, many Malawians are disappointed by Chakwera’s tenure so far. 

 A Family Business in Crisis
Sri Lanka’s entire cabinet has resigned amid mass protests over the country’s current economic crisis. All 26 cabinet members except for the president, Gotabaya Rajapaksa and his elder brother the prime minister, Mahinda Rajapaksa, submitted letters of resignation. The president is set to appoint a new cabinet and some of those stepping down may be reappointed. The country is currently under a state of emergency with a nationwide curfew after protesters attempted to storm the president’s home in the capital Colombo. The economic crisis is at the country’s worst with the unavailability of gas for cooking, medicines, fuel and basic food items such as powdered milk because the country has run out of foreign currency to pay for imports. Power cuts go for 10-12 hours, communications are down as cell phone base stations continue to run out of fuel and the streets are empty as fuel has run out and the little available is at double the price. One can say the president's family rules the country with two of his brothers formerly sitting as the finance minister and agriculture minister and one brother currently retaining his seat as prime minister. His nephew is sports minister. To date 45 arrests have been made and nearly 50 people including journalists have been reported as injured and taken to hospital.

Chess in Slums
Chess in Slums Africa, a Nigerian-based organization conceived from the idea of how the game of chess can be used to lift indigent children out of the endless loop of poverty and societal denigration is changing lives of children in poverty-stricken areas of Nigeria. "Chess is an excellent way of motivating children to seize their own future," says Tunde Onakoya, founder of Chess in Slums Africa. In Makoko, Lagos, extreme poverty and a lack of infrastructure prevent most children from attending school regularly. Marcelo, a ten-year-old whose family lives in the heart of the slum, aspires to become an international chess master. "Chess makes me want to come to school," he says. The organisation gives scholarships to its most active members so they can stay in school and potentially go on to higher education. "Poverty is at its rawest inside the slums," Onakoya says. "Without outside help, these kids won’t fulfil their potential and may become a burden to society. Chess, thanks to its worldwide prestige, shows that students from slums are not less intelligent than other kids."

Serving Inclusion

In a charming affluent neighborhood in Kenya's capital, Nairobi, a restaurant is transforming the lives of deaf people. The restaurant has integrated deaf staff members in its employees. Weaving through the garden-styled café, the waiters use Kenyan Sign Language, mimes or gestures to take orders and interact with patrons. If you don’t know how to sign, posters display an introduction to basic sign language, for example, the waiters may mime shivering to ask if someone wants a cold bottle of water, and the customer can confirm that with a thumbs up. Founder and businessman Feisal Hussein, is a former aid worker who wanted to support disabled people and get them into work. "My vision was to support the deaf community," Hussein says of his business which now has three branches. In one location more than 30 of the 40 staff are either hearing impaired or deaf. Kenya has an estimated 600,000 deaf people, who continue to face huge obstacles around access to healthcare, education and employment.

Short-term Professional Training Course - Non-Revenue Water Management: Institute of Water and Sanitation Development (IWSD)
Application Deadline: 2 May 2022


Training Dates: 9-13 May 2022

About
Non-Revenue Water (NRW) is the volume of water supplied into the network but is lost or unaccounted for before getting to the consumers resulting in loss of revenue for water utilities. Most water utilities in Zimbabwe record more than 60% NRW and the need to reduce it cannot be over emphasized. Reducing these water losses is critical for efficient resource utilization, efficient utility management, enhanced consumer satisfaction, and consideration of capital-intensive projects meant to augment water supply capacity. The costs of improved service delivery are much lower when non-revenue water reduction is prioritized.  It is against this background that Institute of Water and Sanitation Development (IWSD) has moved in to support all water utilities through a training workshop to identify and interrogate the foundations of NRW in order to come up with practical management systems to mitigate against heavy financial and social losses that are currently being experienced. 

Target group
Policy makers, all departmental managers and supervisors, all District Office staff, support staff (billing officers, finance and procurement officers) and technical operational staff

The five day training workshop will allow participants
To identify problem areas and understand the causes of Non-Revenue Water; To undertake performance analysis in the management of the water supply System; To share knowledge and experiences within departments and across water utilities; To leverage on what  water utilities can do to minimize Non-Revenue Water; To build knowledge and skills to better understand advanced technologies in Non-Revenue Water management; To develop institutional roadmap and departmental / sectional action plans and monitoring mechanism for Non-Revenue Water reduction.

The workshop will be highly participatory with opportunities for experience sharing and field visits. Facilitators and guest experts will be drawn from policy makers, academia and technical constituencies to allow for balanced training outcomes.
 
Cost
USD 350 will cover the workshop package, teas and lunches, local transport and related paraphernalia, registration of at least 5 participants will qualify for a discount!!!

Applications and enquiriesshould be sent to training@iwsd.co.zw or call +263 242 799050; +263 779 407 332; Physical Address: 34A Marlborough Drive, Marlborough, Harare

Development of an AU-ILO youth employment strategy for Africa: International Labour Organization (ILO)
Deadline: 20 April 2022 (23:59pm CAT)


About
According to United Nations statistics, there are over 1.21 billion people between the age of 15-24, making up over 15% of the global population (UN, 2020). Out of this, it is estimated that about 252 million youth were living in Africa in 2019, which accounted for approximately 19 percent of the global youth population (UN, 2019). The African Union further estimates that there are over 400 million people between the ages of 15-35 living in Africa. At the current rate of growth, projections show that by 2030, the number of young people in Africa will have increased by up to 42 percent. 

This youthful population has the potential to accelerate the demographic dividend if effectively harnessed, however the multidimensional challenges they face continue to persist. Foremost among these is the youth unemployment rate that remains relatively high. Proper investment in development of Africa’s youth remains crucially important, however the region’s economic growth has so far not translated into sufficient employment creation. The youth unemployment rate in all African sub-regions is higher than the unemployment rate across all age groups and has remained almost unchanged in the past ten years. African youth unemployment is estimated, in 2021, at 12.8 percent and 12.3 percent for females and males respectively. In 2022, 22.9 percent of young Africans were estimated to not be in Employment, Education or Training (NEET), with the female and male rates standing at 27.8 percent and 18.2 percent, respectively. It is important to point out that their substantial differences across sub-regions, with the youth unemployment rates being much higher in North and Southern Africa, compared to the rest of the continent.

Objective and scope of work
The service provider will be expected to develop an AU-ILO youth employment strategy for Africa, that is closely aligned with existing frameworks such as the ILO GB endorsed Follow-up plan of action on youth employment for the period 2020–30 and the Abidjan Declaration among others (see Annex for relevant documents referenced in the context section above), that builds on lessons from the past, and that sets strategic priorities, principles, and guiding parameters for the Organization’s work on youth employment in Africa. Building on the Abidjan Declaration and ILO’s past and current body of work in the area, the strategy will articulate ILO’s value proposition on youth employment promotion in Africa. The strategy will provide strategic direction and a common technical framework for ILO and AU work on youth employment in Africa. It will take the form of strategic document that must consider a complex but fragmented area of work that requires urgent attention that contributes to advocacy at the highest level for more and better jobs for young women and men, relevant knowledge development for the African region, as well as focus on technical assistance that can make a change in the medium term. It should outline a clear high-level vision, goals and thematic areas of work, as well as cross-cutting issue and areas of primary focus and it should connect strategically to the work of the ILO through the Global Initiative on Decent Jobs for Youth as well as potential synergies and partnerships with the Initiative’s members. The strategy will define key objectives and targets for the organization and its constituents to achieve, which should be aligned with relevant frameworks (including those named above), work already done as well as the SDGs and Agenda 2030.

The formulation process will be based on broad and meaningful consultations of ILO’s technical staff, constituents, development partners, and other key stakeholders. In all of these, youth stakeholders, that is youth-led organizations, youth representatives and youth leaders will take centre stage.

Key activities include
Desk research and preparatory work: Based on previous reviews (to be shared, see also Annex), collect and synthesize all relevant frameworks, (evaluation) reports, and supporting documentation / evidence (internal and external to the ILO), with a view of identifying key themes, common grounds and other vital information; identify gaps in and potentials to consult with external and internal stakeholders and develop a youth engagement plan as part of the consultations to be held in the formulation of the strategy. Deliverable - 1: Inception report presenting a detailed roadmap and workplan to consult stakeholders (incl. on how to ensure meaningful youth engagement), develop the draft youth employment strategy, gather inputs from key stakeholders for validation and produce a final strategy document.

Undertaking a Baseline Survey for the Women-Led Sustainable Livelihoods Project in Hwange District, Zimbabwe: Ntengwe for Community Development 
Deadline: 15 April 2022


About
Ntengwe for Community Development intends to undertake a baseline survey for the Community Led Sustainable Livelihoods project to be implemented in three wards of Hwange District from April 2022 to March 2023. Zimbabwe in general, and districts like Hwange in particular, have been reeling from the combined effects of the Covid-19 pandemic, economic challenges and climate change which have all resulted in the decimation of the livelihoods of grassroots women / women smallholder farmers, who produce up to 80 percent of the Hwange regions basic foodstuffs. While these effects are felt across populations, women are disproportionately more affected than men. They commonly face higher risks and greater burdens from these impacts due to inequality, additional burdens, such as family caring responsibilities and frequent and longer journeys to obtain food and water, which makes them vulnerable to gender-based violence. In addition, they are also marginalized and excluded from participating in government services and decision making and policy processes that affect their lives. 

The ZimVAC Rural Livelihood Assessment Report (2021) shows that 82% of households in Hwange reported Covid-19 as a major shock, the highest proportion in Zimbabwe along with Mwenezi (68%) and Marondera (55%). The nature of the border location of Hwange District means many men travel out of the area for employment. The population, therefore, has a higher percentage of vulnerable and economically inactive households with more women and children, the elderly, and youths. According to the Agricultural Policy Research in Africa (2021), the complex dynamics triggered by the Covid-19 pandemic and associated lockdown measures have resulted in disruptions in food systems, including to input supply chains (seeds, fertilizers, veterinary drugs, agro-chemicals) and produce markets. The pandemic has also compounded challenges in accessing critical services such as tillage, agricultural extension and hired labour. There has also been a rise in the cost of agricultural inputs, grains, and other consumables. Loss of income from households’ enterprises, limited off-farm employment and a general rise in the cost of living have all combined to worsen the situation for small holder farmers. It is against this background that Ntengwe for Community Development intends to implement the Community-Led Sustainable Livelihoods project to directly build the capacity of 10,500 women small holder farmers in Hwange District, Zimbabwe, who have been impacted economically by Covid-19. The research findings from the baseline survey will be used for multiple purposes including generating a Monitoring, Evaluation and Learning Framework and project indicators, informing evidence-based advocacy on environmental laws concerning mining in residential areas, national and international frameworks and policies – localization and implementation of anti- pollution policies as well as informing the project end line survey.   

Purpose of the baseline survey 
To undertake a ‘”Baseline Survey” whose findings for multiple purposes including generating a Monitoring, Evaluation and Learning Framework and project indicators, informing evidence-based advocacy on environmental laws concerning mining in residential areas, national and international frameworks and policies – localization and implementation of anti- pollution policies as well as informing the project end line survey.

Situational Analysis to Ascertain Knowledge Gaps / Levels for Civil Society Organizations (CSOs) and Communities with regard to GFATM and CCM Processes in Zimbabwe: Family AIDS Caring Trust (FACT) (Readvertisement) 
Deadline: 19 April 2022


About
FACT is a Christian-based national organization working in and through partnerships to improve health and reduce poverty among people affected by HIV and related issues in Zimbabwe and beyond. FACT is receiving support under the BACKUP Health to assist CSOs in understanding the utilization of GF resources and improve networks and KP communities’ participation in Global Fund (GF) and Country Coordination Mechanisms (CCM) programs. 

Background to BACK UP Health Grant
(BACKUP) is an initiative to provide technical assistance to public and civil society partners in implementing and coordinating funds from international finance mechanisms, with a historical focus on the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria (GFATM). It has been noted that, familiarity and contribution to GF processes is limited among CBOs and CSOs and, in some cases missing among most of Zimbabwe’s CSOs especially those at sub-national level. Some CSOs have limited appreciation of GF funding support and cycles, interventions focus (modular framework), monitoring, outcomes and expectations. Consequently, CSOs neither meaningfully contribute local issues nor take time to appreciate the rapidly transforming needs in health. Equally, CSOs fail to make a link between locally available resources and GF thus affecting complementarity towards health systems improvement goal.

GF Inclusive Country engagements are generally confined to a small number of well-developed urban based CSOs, while excluding rural and geographical remote CSOs. Systematic engagement and support of all CSOs leads to timely, better, specific and targeted identification of community needs leading to better utilization of health finance. At implementation level, systematic and evidence based outputs are affected by uncoordinated implementation and individual resource allocation plans, a consequence and reflection of the effects of poor coordination structures. Thus, CSOs need guidance in functional coordination. CSOs and the community are not fully integrated into ongoing data collection, data analysis, data generation and data sharing for evidence based and responsive interventions. Programmatic data generation and sharing is a critical factor in resource utilization and allocation. Where such is missing, it impacts negatively on effective local and GF resources allocation and utilization. CSOs health generated data is poorly managed to contribute to and reflect on demand and supply of GF funded services. This affects utilization and CSOs capacity to respond. Overall, poor and misaligned uptake leads to poor health outcomes. The overall effect is poor uptake of GF financing leading to poor health systems outcomes and invariably gender, human rights and equity. 

To address the challenges highlighted above, FACT received funding to implement a project to achieve the below objectives: 1) Capacitate CSOs, KP communities and CCM representatives to actively and timely contribute to GF resources monitoring, utilization and allocation at community and national level; 2) Improve CSOs, networks and KP Communities participation in Global Fund and CCM focused data generation and effective programming.

It is against this background that FACT is seeking a consultant to conduct a situational analysis or needs assessment to ascertain knowledge gaps among Civil Society Organizations (CSOs) and communities with regard to GF and CCM.

The expected outcome of the situational analysis
The situational analysis report findings will inform the responsible stakeholders about the knowledge gaps among CSOs concerning the GF and CCM functions and processes.  In addition, the report will provide recommendations on the areas / topics that need to be strengthened to enable full and inclusive participation of CSOs in Zimbabwe in the GF grant cycle processes.

ACCE is implemented across 9 districts (5 in Manicaland and 4 in Midlands). ZHI is the biggest PEPFAR DREAMS implementing partner in Zimbabwe, currently supporting 9 out of the 16 districts across Mashonaland Central, Midlands, Bulawayo, and Matabeleland South provinces.

The media is an important ally in any public health situation. It serves the role of being a source of correct information as well as an advocate for correct health behaviours. The public and social media play a vital role as the link between health workers and the larger public. The media thus helps health workers expand their audience reach, which is crucial considering the fact that face-to-face channels of communication often require too many human resources and reach only a small number of people in large, hard to reach communities. 

ZHI is seeking the services of an experienced consultant to train a total of 20 programs staff on effective media communication.

Scope of work
With support from communications team Chief of Parties, the consultant is expected to conduct a half day workshop at a venue in Harare on the 29th of April 2022. In the execution of this assignment, the consultant shall undertake the following tasks: Meet with ZHI to understand and agree on the scope of the consultancy; Conduct a half day workshop to build the capacity of ZHI staff on effective media communication. Using engaging and practical examples from the media, the training workshop should cover the following: Overview of the media in Zimbabwe (public and social media); Principles and techniques of effective media communication; Interacting with different media platforms (Dos and Dont’s); How to conduct media interviews, project media tours; Handling difficult media questions / To learn how to be in control during media interviews; Understanding media; Developing key messages and media content; Using media for public health.

Train Staff on Use of Power BI and CommCare for Data Management and Analysis: Family AIDS Caring Trust (FACT)
Deadline: 22 April 2022


About
FACT is a Christian-based national organization working in and through partnerships to improve health and reduce poverty among people affected by HIV and related issues in Zimbabwe and beyond. FACT is receiving support from its partner in health programming to improve organizational data management systems. 

Background
CSOs / CBOs and the communities are not fully integrated into ongoing data collection, data analysis, data generation and data sharing for evidence based and responsive interventions. Programmatic data generation and sharing is a critical factor in resource utilization and allocation. Where such is missing, it impacts negatively on effective local and GF resources allocation and utilization. CSOs health generated data is poorly managed to contribute to and reflect on demand and supply of Global Fund and other  donor  funded services. This affects utilization and CSOs capacity to respond to community and national needs. Overall, poor and misaligned use of available data leads to poor health outcomes. 

It is against this background that FACT is seeking a consultant to train staff on the use of data management  and presentation technology specially focusing on Power BI and CommCare software, as options for data management and analysis platforms for some of its projects.

Consultant / facilitator responsibilities
The Facilitator will be expected to train project Staff members on how to configure, upload the CommCare and Power BI software; Train basic  excel  based  data analysis  and visualizations and its  links  with CommC are  and Power  BI platforms; Train staff on how to import data from Ms. Excel to CommCare or Power BI; Train staff on how to clean,  analyze, create dashboards and develop forms using Power BI and CommCare; Model data with Power BI desktop; Create data visualizations and dashboards reports in CommCare and Power BI; Create and share dashboards based on reports in Power BI desktop; Use demo data to create dashboards in Power BI and CommCare.

Main deliverable
A training program, manual, report and related training materials; Free- trial software links.

Regional Competitiveness of the Zimbabwe Dairy Industry in View of the Africa Continental Free Trade Agreement (AfCFTA): Transforming Zimbabwe Dairy Value Chain (TranZDVC) 
Deadline: 22 April 2022 (4.30pm)


About
Transforming Zimbabwe Dairy Value Chain (TranZDVC) for the Future project is a European Union funded project under the Zimbabwe Agricultural Growth Programme (ZAGP). The project is implemented by Zimbabwe Association of Dairy Farmers (ZADF), Zimbabwe Farmers Union (ZFU), We Effect, and Zimbabwe Dairy Industry Trust (ZDIT). The project aims to transform the dairy sector by addressing the Dairy Value Chain challenges. The TranZDVC project also seeks to address the root causes of underperformance in the Dairy Value Chain (DVC) in Zimbabwe by strengthening the linkages between production, processing and financing. However, trade is now being regionally integrated through the Africa Continental Free Trade Agreement (AfCFTA), which is expected to increase intra-African trade by up to 52.3% as a result of tariff reductions. The general objective of the AfCFTA is to a create a single market for goods, services, facilitated by movement of persons in order to deepen the economic integration of the African continent and in accordance with the Pan African Vision of “An integrated, prosperous and peaceful Africa” enshrined in Agenda 2063. Zimbabwe signed the AfCFTA in March 2018 and subsequently ratified it on 25th April 2019. It is however noted that the gains are likely to be uneven at country level, with the potential of exposing local Zimbabwean dairy sector to regional competition before its readiness to compete at that level. This has the potential to erode the gains that have been realized so far in the dairy sector and continue making Zimbabwe a net importer of milk, with loss of jobs and livelihoods along the entire Dairy Value Chain. 

It is against this background that TranZDVC wants to ascertain the Zimbabwe Dairy Industry’s competitiveness under the Africa Continental Free Trade Agreement. This will be done through a focused policy research analysing the Comparative Advantage and Competitiveness of local dairy sector versus Regional Countries in view of AfCFTA.

My Body My Future 2 - Baseline Study: Plan International
Deadline: 28 April 2022


About
We strive to advance children’s rights and equality for girls all over the world. As an independent development and humanitarian organization, we work alongside children, young people, our supporters and partners to tackle the root causes of the challenges facing girls and all vulnerable children. We support children’s rights from birth until they reach adulthood and enable children to prepare for and respond to crises and adversity. We drive changes in practice and policy at local, national and global levels using our reach, experience and knowledge. For over 80 years we have been building powerful partnerships for children, and we are active in over 75 countries.

Program description 
Children, adolescents, and youth (CAY) are an overlooked and under-served population group, particularly in terms of Sexual and Reproductive Health and Rights (SRHR). Among them, girls represent one of the largest excluded groups in the world today and face significant barriers to realizing their rights just because they are young and female. This has dramatic consequences: pregnancy and childbirth continue to be one of the leading causes of death for adolescent girls aged 15-19 worldwide. Girls are too often denied the choices, opportunities and means to protect themselves against early or unintended pregnancy, violence, and sexually transmitted infections. As child mothers often drop out of school, they risk continuing the cycle of poverty for the next generation. Social norms and perceptions about girls’ sexuality lie at the heart of harmful practices such as child, early and forced marriage (CEFM) and female genital mutilation (FGM/C). 

As Plan International, we seek to tackle the root causes of gender inequality at family, community, and state levels. We focus on shifting norms, attitudes, and behaviours; addressing how social and economic resources are distributed; improving access to youth-friendly services; and influencing policy frameworks and budgets. This way, we strive to improve the daily condition of girls while also advancing their position and value in society. 

To address these issues, Plan Finland is implementing the 4-years SRHR program My Body. My Future. Second phase (MBMF2) funded by the Ministry for Foreign Affairs (MFA) of Finland  starting in January 2022 and ending in December 2025. 

Purpose of the baseline
The overall objective of the assignment is to conduct the baseline study of the My Body My Future 2 project in Zimbabwe, based on its Theory of Change and Results framework, through the calculation and analysis of its indicators´ baseline values.  

The baseline study will include the collection of data through a mixed methods approach to measure and set the impacts, outcomes, and outputs indicators’ baseline values, and develop a quantitative and qualitative analysis of the baseline values with the purpose of providing contextualized information related to SRHR and other country specific relevant thematic areas (DRR and climate resilience and SOYEE). 

A gender, rights-based and inclusive approach is expected throughout.
