    • CAPACITY DEVELOPMENT WORKING GROUP 14 April 2010 CARE VIETNAM PROGRAM AND APPROACH IN CAPACITY DEVELOPMENT
    • CBO ORGANISATIONAL CAPACITY DEVELOPMENT
      • Presentation Outline
      • Context – CBOs/SHGs trends
      • Targets
      • Capacity Building dimensions
      • Strengths-Based Approach (SBA)
      • CARE Vietnam Capacity Development work in the rural development sector
      • Opportunities and challenges
    • CURRENT CONTEXT – CBO TRENDS AND RATIONALE FOR USING SBA
      • Great number of CBOs/SHGs are emerging
      • Internal systems and structures of CBOs/SHGs – generally not yet in place  need to focus on organisational development (OD)
      • Some CBOs are becoming stronger in recognising their needs and priorities  need for tools to help them to identify their needs and long term vision.
      • Diversity of CBOs/SHGs - diversity in focus, capacity, interests  need for tailor made OCA tools and OD
      • High turnover of CBO/SHGs members  need to target on individuals but also systems, organisations, networks
      • Existing community stigma and discrimination towards PLHIV  need to use appreciative/empowering approaches
    • TARGETS OF CAPACITY DEVELOPMENT
      • Individuals
      • Systems (internal systems; operating environment systems)
      • Organisations
      • Networks
    • THE 4 CAPACITY DEVELOPMENT DIMENSIONS
      • Technical
      • Programmatic ( program strategy, program development, grants management, project cycle management)
      • Organizational ( organisational mission, vision, values, strategy; management and leadership, organisational structure, governance, finance systems and financial management, communication system, team building, structures, HR management, networking; fundraising and branding,)
      • Institutional ( capacity to operate in your environment – legal requirements / context, relationships with government, donors, other agencies, service providers; linkages with national policy)
    • CARE’S APPROACH TO ORGANISATIONAL CAPACITY ASSESSMENT & DEVELOPMENT
      • To apply strengths-based approaches
      • To use multiple methods and related tools of capacity building: training course, mentoring, internship, networking, experience learning and sharing between organisations, etc.
    • CARE’s Approach: Strengths-Based Approach Image from www.istockphoto.com/file_thumbview_approve/63
      • Asks: What has worked? What makes success?
      • Looks at present strengths and potential
      • Builds on existing capacities
      • Promotes self mobilisation
      • Helps groups achieve what they want to achieve by including a focus on the context for a particular group
      • Capacity assessment is group focused, on what the group wants to achieve, its priorities, and relationships
      • Capacity assessment is tailor made; based on where the group is up to & where the group wants to be
    • CBO CAPACITY DEVELOPMENT NEXT STEPS
      • Research & design CBO capacity assessment tools – SBA following an Appreciative Inquiry model;
      • Pilot the assessment tools with three strong CBOs: BF in Hanoi, EC in Quang Ninh and Xuan Vinh in HCMC.
      • Research and develop Organisational and Institutional Development capacity building training toolkit w ith training materials for implementation by CARE staff, mentors and other interested stakeholders;
    • CBO CAPACITY DEVELOPMENT NEXT STEPS
      • Hold consultation workshops with CBOs to request feedback on assessment tools and training materials developed for contextual relevance and to discuss/gather ideas for development of a mentorship program;
      • Develop mentors’ training program with tools, guidance and support for mentors, based on feedback from consultation workshop and research;
    • CBO CAPACITY DEVELOPMENT NEXT STEPS
      • Roll out the capacity building model through a cluster approach with 4 clusters who will be leaders in delivering the capacity building program to newly developed groups through training, coaching and mentoring.
      • 4 clusters:
        • CBO/SHG Platforms (e.g. VNP+)
        • Bright Future Network
        • Local NGOs
        • Empathy Clubs
    • CARE Vietnam Capacity Development work in the Rural Development sector
      • Technical program area : management of natural resources (land issues, forestry, livelihood, climate change)
      • Target CSOs : VNGOs, CBOs, Associations, MOs, VUSTA
      • Capacity development areas :
        • Technical and organizational development (HR management, Financial management,…)
        • Small grant scheme to CSOs
        • Institutional development notably through strengthening CSOs networking and policy advocacy role at local and national level
        • Strengthen legal registration of CSOs through advocacy
    • OPPORTUNITIES
      • Growing role of CSOs in the development sector in Vietnam in the last 4 years
      • Growing interest from donors in the field of CSOs capacity development in VN for sustainability reasons and direct or sub-grant mechanisms encouraged
      • Emerging national level networks offering a platform for national advocacy
    • CHALLENGES
      • Contextual :
      • Some program funding working on one year grant cycle making difficult to engage in long term capacity development work with CBOs
      • Challenges to develop capacity of new CBOs and be compliant with high donor requirements at the same time
      • High turnover of CBO/SHG leaders and members
      • Challenging criteria and mechanisms for CBOs/SHGs to access to legal registration
      • Existing competition between CBOs and diversity in CBOs capacity and motivation factors
      • Technical :
      • Limited existing tools and resources as well as technical expertise available in some innovative approaches appropriate to CBOs
      • Challenges in using of non traditional tools/approaches (e.g. SBA not applying a measurement system of indicators) in the current donor environment
      • These approaches are time and resource intensive within an environment driven by time and budget constraints
    • Thank you!
