Sharing Worlds employs the following working methods in its capacity building of CSOs.
All CSOs that Sharing Worlds Tanzania supports are examined using a participatory baseline survey to assess their organisational capacity and to indentify their strengths and weaknesses. The outcome of this baseline survey serves as a starting point for each organisation to draw up a plan for tailored support in their capacity development.
CSOs, with the support of Sharing Worlds Tanzania, select the priorities they wish to work on first. Throughout the capacity building process these will be readdressed and where necessary reset to meet the development needs of the CSO.
Sharing Worlds Tanzania provides tailored training that meet the needs of the CSOs and what stage they are at in their organisational development. Examples of such trainings are:
Mission & Vision, Bookkeeping, Needs Assessment, Monitoring and Evaluation, Business Management, and many more.
Funding for activities
Sharing Worlds Tanzania provides small fundings to CSOs to enable them to implement their activities and to support their organizational development.
The activities focus on service and support delivery to their target groups.
Funding for Income Generating Activities (IGA)
CSOs receive support and advice from SWT to develop and implement IGAs. The generated income will enhance the financial sustainability of their organisation and will safeguard the activities for their target groups longterm.
Mentoring visits to the CSOs are conducted on a regular basis to support the groups in their development, to encourage them and to advise and steer them when necessary. Staff members of SWT will visit the organisations on a regular basis on location.
Monitoring and Evaluation
The whole process of capacity development is regularly being monitored and evaluated. This provides an opportunity to implement changes, make adjustments or (re)consider the support where necessary.
Sharing Worlds Tanzania employs a Monitoring & Evaluation tool that is directly linked to the baseline survey drawn up at the start of the process.
