INVITATION TO SUBMIT EXPRESSION OF INTEREST
DateNovember 24, 2021
We Effect has its East Africa regional office based in Nairobi, Kenya and country offices in Uganda and Tanzania. In its development cooperation. We Effect uses a variety of strategies and methods aimed at achieving the mission to; strengthen local and democratic civil society organisations so that their members can improve their living conditions, enforce accountability of duty-bearers, defend their rights, and contribute to a more just world with a vision of realising a world free from poverty. Achieving this is made possible through mutual partnerships.
We Effect works primarily through partner organisations through a meticulous process of joint need identification, designing an appropriate project and then supporting the partner organisation with technical support and matching resources to undertake the interventions.
Currently, We Effect focuses on two main programme areas namely sustainable rural development and Adequate housing. However, gender equality, financial inclusion, environment and climate change mitigation as well as application of the rights-based approach are salient features in our program work.
Why Partner Scanning?
We Effect works in five-year programme cycles and is currently implementing the 2018-2022 cycle. Therefore, a new cycle 2023-2027 is being conceptualised. Towards the end of each cycle, We Effect evaluates the previous cycle and based on the findings develops ambitions for the next period and then scouts for potential local partners that can participate in delivering the envisioned ambitions.
At this stage, We Effect strives to identify and get basic details and especially alignment of potential partner organisations to We Effect’s ambitions. After this stage, an assessment process will follow for organisations that are found to be best aligned.
