Project Fact Sheet for P-MZ-AZ0-001

Project / Programme Title
Women's Entrepreneurship And Skills Development
Brief Project Description
The Project will comprise two components: 1) Rural Livelihoods Promotion and Marketing Support; and 2) Institutional Support. (1) Rural Livelihoods Promotion and Marketing Support 1.2. The main outcome of this component will be 4,500 women trained in basic business management and agro processing skills as alternative economic activities and to mitigate household food insecurity. Further, 900 women will be selected from the previous group and trained in advanced entrepreneurship and business-start up skills. This component seeks to achieve this through three sub-components: (a) entrepreneurship and technical skills development; (b) agro-processing technology, and (c) marketing support. (2) Institutional Support No new project management unit will be created under this project. Thus, the Project Management Team will be located at the National Directorate for Women (DNM) within the Ministry of Women and Social Action (MMAS). The project will be managed through the existing structure of the DNM. Thus, the DNM will assign three staff members, whose qualifications and experience are acceptable to the Bank, for the positions of Gender and HIV/ AIDS Expert, Project Accountant and a secretary to comprise part of the Project Management Team. A full-time Project Coordinator will be recruited from project resources to head the Project Management Team due to the fact that DNM/ MMAS suffers from human resources capacity constraint for this position. The Project Coordinator will have sufficient experience in agro-processing, agri-business development, management and training. 1.13. The project will also support one technical assistant who will have experience in rural entrepreneurship development. He/ she will be charged with assisting the project coordinator in implementation and monitoring of the various short term entrepreneurship training, marketing related activities, formation of business groups and linking them to credit institutions. Moreover, he/ she will play an advisory role to the DNM and the participating Provinces in issues related to project activities and implementation. The technical assistant will also focus on quality control, standardisation and certification processes. Furthermore a short term procurement consultant will be recruited for six months in PY1 who will assist in the procurement of project inputs. The project will also support the costs of annual auditing of project accounts. Moreover, a short-term consultant will be recruited for the monitoring and evaluation activities in the project. The M&E expert will be required to put an extensive M&E mechanism in place as well as train the different implementation partners in monitoring and reporting the project activities. A short term (3 months) financial analyst consultant will be recruited to help the project accountant to put in place a comprehensive accounting and financial records keeping system. 1.14. Therefore, the Project Management Team (PMT) will be provided under this project with office technology and equipment, field allowances for some of the staff and some specific office running expenses. One vehicle will be needed for the project coordination and field monitoring and evaluation visits. Since most of the project activities will be implemented at the community level, the 2 DNM Provincial and 8 District Offices will support the project in planning, implementation, monitoring and evaluation of the project activities at the local level. The project will also provide office automation and information technology to the MMAS and DNM Provincial and District offices of the participating Provinces. The 2 participating DNM Provincial Offices and 8 DNM District offices will be supported with 1 motorcycle each (10 in total) to support the outreach, monitoring and evaluation of the women#s business groups. Specifically the project will provide for training to the selected staff of DNM as well as MMAS Provincial and District offices and the 8 district agriculture offices in project planning, management and implementation, leadership and communication skills, different computer software such as Excel, PowerPoint, Word, SPSS, internet and email services, as well as courses in English Language. 1.15. Moreover, the project will support 150 gender sensitisation and awareness raising training on women#s economic empowerment rights targeted to the communities, community leaders and elders as well as selected provincial and district administrators. Moreover, 200 HIV/ AIDS awareness raising campaigns will also be targeted to these target groups and direct beneficiaries of the project.
