Projects

Policy analysis, scans, formulation and reviews

We undertook a policy scan of gender based violence (GBV), gender and HIV related laws, policies, national strategies, action plans and guidelines in the Eastern and Southern Africa region for UNAIDS- Eastern and Southern Africa.

We prepared the Costed Agenda for Accelerated Country Action for Women, Girls, Gender Equality and HIV (AACA) with its monitoring and evaluation for South Sudan AIDS Commission. This was supported by UNAIDS and UN WOMEN.

We reviewed the multi-country study on TB in relation to human rights and gender in the mining sector the Southern Africa. This was supported by the World Bank and Acquity Innovations.

Programme management

In collaboration with TDS Africa, we undertook a scoping mission and prepared the baseline study for Hivos in Uganda. The studies examined women’s rights in the horticulture sector in Uganda.

The studies found that women’s labor is mainly concentrated in the lower stages of the value chain. Women work as laborers digging, weeding, harvesting, sorting, packing and labeling flowers, fruits and vegetables. Very few women operate as big entrepreneurs owning large pieces of land or processing facilities for fruits and vegetables. The majority face entry barriers such as lack of finance or credit, equipment and education, to participate in the higher stages of the value chains.

Compared to the flower industry, there was hardly any detailed research on fruits and vegetables. Hence stakeholders welcomed this study, noting that it would be an important milestone to generate evidence for the horticulture industry.

Training, capacity building and professional development

We recently conducted the National Gender Based Violence Baseline Study in Namibia. This was commissioned by Namibia’s Ministry of Gender Equality and Child Welfare and funded by UNFPA.

We worked closely with the staff and management of the Ministry of Gender Equality and Child Welfare and UNFPA. We planned the execution of the assignment. We trained the research teams. Our clients participated in the preparation of tools, data collection and analysis and provided input to all deliverables.

Knowledge management

We conducted the review and analysis of South Africa’s Department of Social (DSD) in relation to the USAID-funded Government Capacity Building Support (GCBS) programme through PACT South Africa.

We prepared an inventory of key documents relayed to orphans and vulnerable children and youth (OVCY). The main objectives are to improve timely availability of reliable data; strengthen coordination, management and oversight; and strengthen inter-sectorial coordination.
