Kauli ya mgombea Urais Tanzania 2015, Anna Mghwira kuhusu "kulinda kura"

Anna Mghwira katika moja ya mikutano ya kampeni
Panapoibiwa kura, basi kura zilindwe.
Kama hatukujua wizi wa kura, tusingejua kuzilinda.
Tunalinda kinachoibiwa si kinacholindwa!
Kuna wizi wa kura, kutakuwa na ulinzi wa kura na sheria imekubali kwa kutambua uwepo wa wizi wa kura.

Tanzania Elections 2015: Your Vote Matters

I am disappointed about the fact that I am in fact disappointed. You may ask: Why am I disappointed? I am disappointed because my beloved Tanzania is falling into the normal trap of the prevailing understanding in the West---‘'each for oneself and God for us all”.

This Western adage is already failing many in the West. My predictions are that if it hasn’t failed many in Tanzania already, sooner than later it will. The gap between the rich and the poor will astronomically increase. The results of which will be catastrophic levels of unrest for the ones outside the circles of influence which may destabilizes the peaceful nature of Tanzania.

The political establishments have the opportunity to change this fact. However, there is a conundrum in the modern politicking in Tanzania. Three factors contributes to this: One, political positions have become so expensive such that it is inaccessible for the common man with a common sense to access it. It is only accessible to those who have the means to purchase it and/or bloodlines connecting them to the current politicians. Two, the sad thing is, most of the African modern politicians were born in conditions of want, lived on the edge of needs, survived in dog-eat-dog world, are unable to restrain their ego, and have the highest desire for the lime-lights. These realities brings forth the Third factor, the ignorance in understanding the basics of a generally good governance called the commons. The common laws are the foundation of good society.

In Africa and Tanzania in particular, many people still live and largely observe the laws of the common. I remember Nyerere’s statement posted in all secondary schools across the country. The statement went like “Those who received this Privilege have a duty to repay the sacrifice that others have made”. The statement was based on the laws of the common. That is everything is ours and not mine. This is how the Tanzanian family structure is built. This is how the village structure is built. However, the commons are not common anymore. The commons are now largely owned by the few. Politicians, relatives, and their friends. Thus, the commons cannot save the majority. As the saying goes “owned by the few will only save the few”. The many who actually own the commons are left to struggle in this man-made abject poverty. And that, disgust me.

In Tanzania for example: hospitals, schools, clean drinking water supply, electricity, the police force and all the essentials services of the majority are short-handed. No medicine, no teachers, no running water, no electricity, and no supplies at our policing centers. However, there is always money for the chosen few to indulge in the wealth of the commons. Another instance is the Members of Parliament who saves themselves rather than serving those who put them in office. We have become worshipers of our rulers rather than the rulers worshiping us for entrusting them with our resources. This has to change. It starts with the constitution. A new constitution that will put its people first and not the other way around.

The current situation for the sick among us is atrocious. There is saying that goes like “A society is judged by how it treats the less fortunate among it”. Tanzania treats the less fortunate horribly. Look at how we treat our elderly, our albinos, and all the less fortunate among us. The rulers and the connected receive first class medical attention. If you don’t believe me, wait until one among them or their family member needs critical medical attention to which there is none in the state referral hospitals. Then, there will be money to fly them to South Africa, India, Europe or the United States. Where they pay in cash for the medical procedures necessary to save their lives. Off course, not with their money. They pay with the commons’ money. Your tax money. We, ourselves have allowed them to write these benefits into their contracts. These types of loopholes create no incentives for the rulers to find solutions to improve health care for the commons and the well-being of its people.

On top of that, the rulers travel excessively in the name of the commons. Using our poverty numbers and statistics to borrow money in our names. Not for us, but for themselves. To them, our poverty is the necessary evil. Our poverty is a necessity to borrow from the IMF and the other rich countries around the world. Without us being poor, there will be no reason and/or collateral for the borrowing. Hence, we are kept poor through BAD policies so that the borrowing and begging can and will continues. Unless the culture is changed…we will continue to be victims of our own making.

Tanzanians. You do have a voice and a chance to rectify the situation. Your voice can change all this man-made-poverty.

Vote with this in mind.

Anyhow, It is your country. Do as you please!

Job: External Evaluation of a DFID funded project - Mwanza, Tanzania

Organization: Railway Children
Country: United Republic of Tanzania
Closing date: 10 Nov 2015
Railway Children Africa is looking for an independent consultant or firm to conduct a high quality external evaluation of a 3 year project funded by DFID's Global Poverty Action Fund, implemented in Mwanza, Tanzania.
Railway Children (RC)
Railway Children Africa is registered in Tanzania as a Limited Company (77698) under the Companies Act, with NGO compliance (1563) under the Non-Governmental Organisations Act. Railway Children Africa is a subsidiary of Railway Children. Railway Children is registered in the UK as both a Charity (1058991) and a Company Limited by Guarantee (3265496).
Railway Children exists to help vulnerable children in grave circumstances. Our objective is to provide relief to children and young people who are in conditions of need, hardship or distress and in particular to those living on the streets.
As an organisation our primary aim is to enable and create positive sustainable change in the lives of children living alone and at risk on the streets. Our ‘3 Step Change Agenda’ embodies our vision of real change being achieved through success in three interwoven, inextricable areas:
  1. Meeting the immediate needs of children on the streets
  2. Shifting local perception
  3. Holding governments responsible
Railway Children is receiving funds from DFID's Global Poverty Action (GPAF) Fund for a 3 year period - January 2013-March 2016 - and the external evaluation outlined in this ToR will aim to verify and learn about impact achieved in implementing the project supported by GPAF in Mwanza, Tanzania.
The Global Poverty Action Fund (GPAF)
DFID provides significant funding to civil society organisations (CSOs) annually in line with its overall strategy to alleviate poverty and promote peace, stability and good governance. The Programme Partnership Arrangement (PPA) and Global Poverty Action Fund (GPAF) are two of DFID’s principal funding mechanisms and have provided £480 million to approximately 230 CSOs between 2011 and 2013. The current political climate and results-based agenda demand a rigorous assessment of the effectiveness of funds disbursed to ensure that they are managed to provide value for money.
TripleLine is the Fund Manager for the GPAF and is responsible for assessing performance of grantees at the project level. Coffey International Development is the Evaluation Manager and is responsible for assessing the performance of the funding mechanisms as a whole. For more information on the fund level valuation, please see the 2012 Evaluation Strategy.
Railway Children Project Description
Project title: ‘Provision of support, reintegration and referral services for 1,200 children and youth on the streets of Mwanza, Tanzania’
This project has aimed to create sustainable support structures for children on the streets in Mwanza; the major urban centre for a radius of several hundred kilometres and the destination for the rural population migrating to the city including children escaping poverty and abuse. Government agencies have few resources to respond to the needs of children and local agencies are under resourced in terms of funds available and appropriate skills. We are developing quality practice across agencies in the city which work with children on the streets, which includes contact, short term care and effective reintegration with families for children already on the street and support for vulnerable families to prevent their children going to the street. We provide opportunities for homeless youth to learn new skills to enable them to improve their livelihoods and leave the street. The project is also working with local government to help build effective linkages with service providers to encourage sustainable structures and processes.
Purpose of the independent final evaluation for GPAF grantees
The evaluation report will ultimately be submitted by Railway Children to DfID, and will be used to inform the GPAF Fund Manager’s understanding of Railway Children's performance at the project level and will also be used to inform the Evaluation Manager’s assessment of performance at the GPAF fund level. The independent final evaluation report needs to be a substantial document that (a) answers all the elements of the Terms of Reference (ToR); (b) provides findings and conclusions that are based on robust and transparent evidence; and (c) where necessary supplements the grantee’s own data with independent research.
Key objectives of the evaluation
The evaluation has two explicit objectives that are explained below:
1 - To independently verify (and supplement where necessary), Railway Children's record of achievement as reported through its Annual Reports and defined in the project logframe;
2 - To assess the extent to which the project was good value for money, which includes considering:
  • How well the project met its objectives;
  • How well the project applied value for money principles of effectiveness, economy, efficiency in relation to delivery of its outcome;
  • What has happened because of DFID funding that wouldn’t have otherwise happened; and
  • How well the project aligns with DFID’s goals of supporting the delivery of the MDGs.
Verification of grantee reporting
The first task of the final evaluation is to verify Railway Children's achievement. The record of achievement will be presented in past Annual Reports and progress against the project logframe. This exercise could include verifying information that was collected by the grantee for reporting purposes and possibly supplementing this data will additional information collected through primary and secondary research. Verifying the results from the project log frame will begin to capture what the project has achieved. However, there will be other activities and results that occur outside of the logframe that may require examination in order to respond to the different evaluation questions. Verifying reporting will also necessarily include a review of the data and systems that were used to populate results.
Assessment of value for money
The evaluation should assess the extent to which the delivery and results of the project are good value for money. Value for money can be defined in different ways, but at minimum the evaluation report should include an assessment against:
  • How well the project applied value for money principles of effectiveness, economy, efficiency in relation to delivery of its outcome;
  • What has happened because of DFID funding that wouldn’t have otherwise happened.
Evaluation questions
To ensure comparability across the final evaluation reports, the evaluator(s) should respond to the questions below. Please note that the attention given to each evaluation question may vary depending on the objectives of certain projects and the availability of data, so the independent evaluator(s) should use his/her discretion in the level of effort used to respond to these questions.
The evaluator is encouraged to structure their research questions according to the OECD-DAC criteria of relevance, effectiveness, efficiency, sustainability and impact.
GPAF's generic Evaluation Questions:
  • To what extent did the Railway Children support achievement towards the MDGs, specifically off-track MDGs?
  • To what extent did the project target and reach the poor and marginalised?
  • To what extent did the project mainstream gender equality in the design and delivery of activities (and orother relevant excluded groups)?
  • How well did the project respond to the needs of target beneficiaries, including how these needs evolved over time?
  • To what extent are the results that are reported a fair and accurate record of achievement?
  • To what extent has the project delivered results that are value for money? To include but not limited to:
  • How well the project applied value for money principles of effectiveness, economy, efficiency in relation to delivery of its outcome;
  • What has happened because of DFID funding that wouldn’t have otherwise happened; and
  • To what extent has the project used learning to improve delivery?
  • What are the key drivers and barriers affecting the delivery of results for the project?
  • To what extent did the grantee deliver results on time and on budget against agreed plans?
  • To what extent did the project understand cost drivers and manage these in relation to performance requirements?
  • To what extent has the project leveraged additional resources (financial and in-kind) from other sources?
  • What effect has this had on the scale, delivery or sustainability of activities?
  • To what extent is there evidence that the benefits delivered by the project will be sustained after the project ends?
  • To what extent and how has the project built the capacity of civil society?
  • How many people are receiving support from the project that otherwise would not have received support?
  • To what extent and how has the project affected people in ways that were not originally intended?
Railway Children's additional questions
  • CSO capacity building: To what extent did Railway Children succeed in building the institutional and programmatic capacity of the implementing organisations? What were the conditions in each partner and/or our support that led to success or acted as a barrier?
  • To what extent did emotional and relational support provided by staff have a positive impact on families and children?
  • How well have we balanced the pressure to deliver on project plans against the individual needs of beneficiaries - and what have we learnt from this.
  • Youth: To what extent has the economic empowerment been successful (grants / placements) in realising youth working in their selected field? What are the main changes that the youth have experienced as a result of our intervention?
  • Economic empowerment across the programme: Analysis of failure and success rates across the programme: What were the factors or conditions caused these differences?
  • Government and stakeholder collaboration (output 4) - What have been the barriers of the partnership in building sustainable government collaboration and referral pathways with other organisations?
The consultant will be responsible for designing the methodology, with input from Railway Children. To fulfil the objectives of this exercise both quantitative and qualitative assessment methods should be employed. We require a participatory methodology whereby the work engages all key stakeholders including beneficiaries; children, youth, parents/guardians, community members, partner staff and Railway Children staff.
Selected consultants will be expected to provide an overview of the proposed methodology as part of the tendering process including evaluation tools to be used, progress reports and debriefing meetings and a detailed work plan should be established before the work begins.
