Livestock Vaccine Innovation Fund (LVIF) projects

Gender Projects program

In 2019, Right Track Africa conducted outcome-mapping trainings at inception workshops held by Livestock Vaccine Innovation Fund (LVIF) – Gender Projects program for the project team members in Kenya, Uganda and Rwanda. The LVIF project is funded by IDRC and it is titled: “Hearing their voices: Action research to support women’s agency and empowerment in livestock vaccine distribution, delivery and use in Rwanda, Uganda and Kenya”. The workshops were attended by participants from the four project teams, led by a facilitator team from IDRC Canada and Kenya. Some of the workshop objectives were; to build a common understanding of what “Gender Inclusive Vaccine Distribution and Delivery Systems” means, and relate this knowledge to practical applications to strengthen each project; to discuss and refine theories of change for women’s empowerment in the livestock value chain and to understand IDRC reporting processes and expectations. The workshop process was a combination of presentations, plenary and group discussions.

ADRA and Salvation Army

Outcome Mapping Training

Right Track Africa conducted training workshop in Kenya, Ghana and Malawi on Outcome Mapping (OM) for the Salvation Army Sweden (TSA-SWE) and ADRA Sweden (ADRA-SWE) in October and November of 2019. Swedish Mission Council (SMC) funds the two organizations. Salvation Army and ADRA’s interest in Outcome Mapping was to develop their staff capacity in establishing a “clear vision of the human, social and environmental betterment to which their different programs and projects contribute to. One of the training was conducted in Blantyre, Malawi and the other in Nairobi in October and November 2019 respectively; and, February 2020 in Ghana. The

Salvation Army

is a Christian organization with articles of faith that emphasise God’s saving purposes. The organization mission is to preach the gospel of Jesus Christ and to meet human needs in His name without discrimination. Salvation Army works in more than 130 countries with some of the poorest communities to restore the economic, social, ecological and spiritual relationships.

The Adventist Development and Relief Agency(ADRA)

is the global humanitarian organization of the Seventh-day Adventist Church. ADRA works through an international network to deliver relief and development assistance to communities, regardless of their ethnicity, political affiliation, or religious association. The objective is to improve the quality of life of millions through social justice; support to children; disaster response; gender equity; economic growth; community health; water, sanitation and hygiene; hunger and nutrition; livelihoods and agriculture. The first training objective was mainly to improve the capacity of the organization’s staff in using outcome mapping for planning, monitoring, evaluation and learning their programs in Kenya, Uganda and South African countries. This was achieved through training project staff, selected community members and other partners for enhanced participation and greater ownership of development processes. The second was to improve the capacity of the trained staff in establishing progress markers together with key boundary partners in their community development work. This was to be achieved through training staff and partners in setting up realistic and measurable progress markers.

TechnoServe – outcome mapping

Alliance for Inclusive and Nutritious Food Processing project

Right Track Africa provided outcome mapping and outcome harvesting technical assistance to TechnoServe in 2019. The Outcomes Harvest (OH) was to identify and validate what had been achieved, and the contributing roles of the program and other factors. The participants were also introduced to outcome mapping (OM). Since March 2018, TechnoServe, in alliance with Partners in Food Solutions (PFS), has been implementing a 5-year Alliance for Inclusive and Nutritious Food Processing project in Kenya, Tanzania, Ethiopia and Zambia (AINFP, hereafter also referred to as the Alliance). The goal of the project, funded by USAID Bureau of Food Security, is to create a competitive food-processing sector that generates inclusive economic growth. The Alliance project is designed to transfer technology and know-how to food processors (at least 30% female-owned/led) in the target countries. Following the project’s first year of operations (2018 – 2019), TechnoServe sought to design and implement an Outcomes Harvest (OH) to identify and validate what had been achieved, and the contributing roles of the program and other factors. The OH technical assistance started with a 3-day training event that took place in September 2019 at Nairobi, Kenya. The training was attended by participants, majority drawn from the AINFP and a few from other Technoserve Market System Facilitation (MSF) projects namely; SAPFF, Yield Wise and Coffee Program. The participants were also introduced to outcome mapping (OM), with an explanation of the difference between the two project management processes, and why OM is best suited for planning ahead and monitoring, while OH is best suited for evaluation.
