Detailed description of project Back

The International Fundraising Consortium – South Africa (Interfund), is contributing with the support of the EU, to a three-year programme of support to the strengthening of capacity at all institutional levels of the NGOs and CSOs.

The overall objective of the project is to empower poor and marginalised communities, to strengthen their organisational capacity and participation in public decision making, and to increase their access to knowledge opportunity, resources and services.

The project purpose is to strengthen INTERFUND in its “capacity building” and “forum” missions so that NGOs and other organisations involved in decentralised co-operation are able to realise their mission and deliver services more effectively. The expected results of the project are (i) the capacity of NGOs operating in MIP focal sectors increased and overall NGO sector capacity strengthened; and (ii) NGO capacity strengthened through an environmental scanning and development debate service.

A Mid-Term Review of the project was undertaken in 2002. Annual audits and compliance audit covering the full project period have been carried out and/or are underway.

The final evaluation should highlight the lessons learnt so that the conclusion and recommendations arrived at can be taken into account in the design and implementation of any future interventions in this field.
