Amplify project

Brief background of amplifychange:

AmplifyChange is pooled fund supported by Danida at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in Denmark, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Netherlands, the David and Lucile Packard Foundation, the William and Flora Hewlett Foundation and the Viiv Foundation. It is a fund that aims to empower young people, men and women to realize their sexual and reproductive rights. It does this by supporting civil society and grassroots organisations (CSOs) to advocate for and promote better sexual and reproductive health and rights of people in countries where the needs are greatest particularly in Sub-Saharan Africa and South Asia. Mannion Daniels Limited is contracted to deliver AmplifyChange. Mannion Daniels is working in a consortium with the Global Fund for Women (GFW) and African Women’s Development Fund (AWDF) to manage AmplifyChange.

Following the call for proposal by AmplifyChange in 2015, ActionAid International The Gambia (AAITG) in partnership with the Network against Gender Based Violence (NGBV) developed a concept note and submitted it to AmplifyChange for funding consideration for a project to accelerate the abandonment of FGM. Fortunately the concept note was accepted and AmplifyChange requested for a full proposal to be developed for consideration base on the concept. The proposal was developed and submitted and luckily a two years project funding was secured from AmplifyChange entitle: Strengthening the Capacity of the Network against Gender Based Violence (NGBV) to Advocate for the Eradication of FGM in The Gambia.

One of the first activities of the project was the inception meeting which brought together all the project staff and other key implementing partners to discuss the project documents in order to familiarize themselves with the project terms and conditions, objectives, milestones, budget and procedures for effective implementation of project activities. It also served as a forum for clarification of any unclear issue concerning the project as well as clarification of roles and responsibilities of different project actors.
