An Irish Aid – NGO Dialogue Meeting

Strategic Programme Approaches:

Implementing a strategic programme approach to

promote aid effectiveness.

The perspective of Children in Crossfire.

slide2

Children in Crossfire: Background

  • Founded in 1996, with 3 staff and an annual income of €50,000.
  • Now with 16 operations staff (12 in Ireland & 4 in Tanzania)
  • and an annual income of €2.2 million.

A ‘traditional charitable approach’

Appointed ‘International Programme Coordinator’ in 2007 and conducted a strategic planning process (2008-2010) to make the organisation more effective and able to deliver clearer results with sustainable impact.

slide3

Children in Crossfire & Aid Effectiveness.

  • The Paris Declaration & Accra Agenda promotes:
  • Strengthening Country Ownership over Development.
    • Effective and Inclusive Partnerships.
  • Accounting for Development Results.
  • We have been doing this by:
  • Increasing Organisational Capacity
  • Increasing Organisational Effectiveness
  • Affecting Social Change
  • Creating an Enabling Environment.
slide4

Organisational Capacity

  • Developed a 2010 – 2015 Organisational Strategic Plan :
  • ‘A Promise for the Future.’
  • Strategic focus on Early Childhood Development.
  • (esp. MDG 2, 4 & UNCRC GC 7).
  • Mainstreaming ‘Inclusion’.
  • Tanzania, Ethiopia and The Gambia.
  • All organisational teams working toward a shared vision, mission and goal.
  • Developed 2010 – 2015 International Operations Guide.
slide5

Organisational Effectiveness

Equitable partnership with the ‘Tanzania Early Childhood Development Network’ (TECDEN).

200 grassroots member organisations in 14 of the 26 regions of Tanzania.

TECDEN now have increased capacity and effectiveness and are recognised as a key strategic partner for the Government of Tanzania and others.

TECDEN are also a strategic partner for Children in Crossfire:

Access to remote and difficult areas.

Access to areas where indicators show greatest need.

A voice to grassroots constituency.

slide6

Ability to Affect Social Change.

Through lobbying work by Children in Crossfire with TECDEN, four

recommendations developed from grassroots activities have been directly absorbed into the Government of Tanzania ‘Integrated Early Childhood Development Policy’.

Children in Crossfire have also played a lead role in developing a ‘Child

Rights Education for Professionals’ training curriculum for Tanzania.

Children in Crossfire have designed and distributed English and

KiSwahili versions of the curriculum, and are supporting TECDEN to

deliver the curriculum to 3,000 early childhood development

professionals working directly with over 150,000 young children nationwide.

slide7

Enabling Environment.

Children in Crossfire were invited to prepare a position paper on Early

Childhood Development, which resulted in the importance of ECD

having direct mention in the Government of Tanzania’s National Poverty

Reduction Strategic Plan (MKUKUTA 2).

Children in Crossfire have also played significant roles in the UNICEF

led national taskforce on the ‘Tanzania Law of the Child’ and in the

UNICEF led initiative to develop a set of national indicators for early

childhood development.

On 22nd June 2010, Children in Crossfire will co-host an event where

the report on the ECD Indicators initiative will be presented to

Government of Tanzania ministers and members of the United Nations

Committee on the Convention of the Rights of the Child and at which the

KiSwahili version of the Child Rights Curriculum for Professionals will

be officially launched.
