CALL FOR EXPRESSION OF INTEREST
The ICJ Fund has initiated a process of embedding impact evaluation (IE) of its new and on-going re-grant recipients. The objective of including this IE component in the ICJ Fund’s programming is to demonstrate whether the project goals and beneficiaries works. This is particularly helpful as grant requests might appear potentially promising before the implementation but fail to generate the expected impacts.
Therefore, TrustAfrica seeks a consultant to carry out an impact evaluation of one of its partners. The evaluation will be implemented as part of the series on “African Civil Society’s Roles in The Fight Against Impunity” – aimed at show casing the impact of CSOs on the impunity gap for atrocity crimes in Africa, which will in turn provide a platform for the evaluation of the Fund’s efforts to build the capacity of civil society groups and strengthen networks across regions.
The evaluation is expected to generate relevant findings, lessons and recommendations which will be shared independently with stakeholders and the wider community; and then later synthesized as part of the CSO Advancing accountability series to be published as a book. This will be used as best practice to guide and inform the design of future activities.

Some have questioned whether Zimbabweans have any reason to celebrate the fall of President Robert Mugabe, and sentiments are divided over the meaning of this change to the struggle for democracy and their aspirations for a better future.
I argue that Zimbabweans have every reason to celebrate Mugabe's fall but that the bigger task is to use this opportunity to organize with more vigor for a more democratic and just Zimbabwe.
Further, I assert that Mugabe's fall creates a new cultural climate of which Zimbabweans must take advantage to launch a new era of invigorated civic organizing and citizen agency in the country.

The TrustAfrica Agriculture Advocacy Program working with Agriculture Non-State Actors Forum (ANSAF) held a workshop for livestock stakeholders to sharpen policy advocacy skills and to validate a strategic communication and advocacy plan, developed after several months of stakeholder consultations and research. The workshop was held from the 8th to the 11th of August, as a follow-up to the groundwork that saw the emergence of a loose network of livestock policy advocates upon seeing the need to come together to promote accountable, inclusive and equitable livestock policies and investments in Tanzania.
The network is made up of wide range of stakeholders from civil society organisations, pastoralists, research private organisations, farmers unions, private sector companies, development partners as well as government.
