COMMUNITY-BASED CONDITIONAL CASH TRANSFER PILOT PROGRAMME - TANZANIA
Ayala Consulting has, once again, been hired to provide management and technical assistance for the Community-Based Conditional Cash Transfer Pilot Programme in Tanzania. The Government of the United Republic of Tanzania is implementing the Tanzania Second Social Action Fund (TASAF II) through financing from the World Bank.
This programme is a follow up Project, following the successful implementation of the first phase of TASAF (TASAF I) that was implemented between November 2000 and June 2005, in 40 districts, among others.
At the same time, the objective of TASAF II is to empower communities of Bagamoyo, Chamwino and Kibaha in about 80 villages to have access to opportunities that will enable them to request, implement, and monitor sub projects that contribute to improved livelihoods by implementing Conditional Cash Transfer (CCT) Programmes.
Therefore, Conditional Cash Transfer (CCT) Programmes are a way of providing help to poor people upon specific actions, which usually involves investments in human capital. CCT programs are considered instruments for short-term poverty alleviation, as well as for longer-term economic growth and human capital objectives, and Ayala Consulting has proven to be one of the most recognized consultancies providing assistance in this type of projects.
The team of consultants from Ayala Co. will provide technical support to the TMU in order to facilitate the designing and implementation of the community-based conditional cash transfer pilot programme in three pilot Local Government Authorities. At the same time, the consultants will complete the Programme Operational System design, which includes the targeting and enrolment of potential beneficiaries. Additionally, the firm will develop the MIS targeting module for the programme, provide support to the TASAF Technical Unit by giving recommendations for the different stages of the implementation process, finally, the consultant will train the TASAF’s technical unit on the different aspects of the implementation process.
