CONSULTANCY TO CONDUCT CAPACITY BUILDING ON RESOURCE MOBILIZATION, AND TO DEVELOP A RESOURCE MOBILIZATION STRATEGY

 1.0 Background

The Planned Parenthood Association of Ghana (PPAG) is a leading, volunteer-supported, grassroots-based, nonpartisan and rights-based CSO working in the field of Sexual Reproduction Health and Rights (SRHR) in Ghana, and is a member of the International Planned Parenthood Federation (IPPF). The association works to complement efforts in-country and across the African region in the provision of SRHR information and services to the general population, particularly adolescents, women, and also to vulnerable groups, including persons living with disability.

Since 2021, PPAG with support from Rutgers International and the International Planned Parenthood Federation (IPPF) has been implementing a specialized program called ‘The Centers of Excellence’. The program seeks to improve the quality of young people’s reproductive health and rights across the Africa region through a unique collaborative mechanism. This is being executed in a two-pronged approach: the first is increasing uptake of quality youth-centred SRH services, that take gender and human rights into account; the second component is the strengthening of available support, knowledge and expertise to improve the lives of young people in English speaking West Africa region. The program offers a unique opportunity to consolidate technical expertise and disseminate contextual best practices on Comprehensive Sexuality Education (CSE) and youth-friendly services.

PPAG over the period has provided comprehensive technical support to six (6) other IPPF member associations in the area of youth programming. The collaboration has generated extensive innovative ideas and potential interventions across the region, however, there is inadequate funding and resource support to actualize them. This has been linked to low capacity and skill, and a lack of information on funding sources. To address this concern as a Center of Excellence, PPAG in collaboration with the partner stakeholders seeks to develop a resource mobilization strategy and conduct training for the participating MAs. The objective of this initiative is to provide a strategic direction on resource mobilization for the programme while improving skills and competencies within the MAs in the development of and sourcing of funding.
