UK Aid Match II

MannionDaniels

UK Aid Match II - 2016-2020 is the next phase of DFID’s UK Aid Match scheme and has a budget of up to £157 million. UK Aid Match is DFID’s fund to increase UK public engagement in international development, while simultaneously reducing poverty and achieving the Global Goals in priority countries through funded civil society organisations. DFID aims to provide opportunities for the UK public to have a say in how UK aid is spent by offering to match every £1 donated by the public to a UK Aid Match charity appeal. CSOs use the match funding raised in the appeals to implement projects that improve the lives of some of the world’s poorest and most vulnerable people. In the first phase of the UK Aid Match 2013 - 2016, a total of 62 grants were awarded to CSOs, working in 22 countries, and 3.6 million public donations were matched. Under the next phase of the scheme, UK Aid Match II, DFID would like to see an increase in the number and diversity of CSOs accessing UK Aid Match funding, a more diversified subsection of the public being reached by the appeals and engaged in international development, and more innovative or non-challenge fund methods being explored. The next phase of the scheme will have broader country eligibility criteria, which will include countries in the bottom 50 of the Human Development Index and countries that DFID considers to be highly or moderately fragile. In January 2018, DFID selected a MannionDaniels’ led consortium as Fund Manager for the next phase of UK Aid Match. The consortium partners are Education Development Trust, Oxford Policy Management, KIT Royal Tropical Institute and The Social Change Agency.

Indonesia Tsunami Appeal

Disasters Emergency Committee

On Friday 28 September, an earthquake measuring 7.4 on the Richter scale rocked the Indonesian island of Sulawesi, triggering a terrifying tsunami that reached 18 feet in height and left a trail of destruction in its wake. The true scale of the disaster is only now becoming clear. Tens of thousands of homes have been destroyed and entire communities have been decimated. At least 2,100 people have died, thousands more are missing and 200,000 survivors are now in urgent need of humanitarian assistance, around a quarter of whom are children. DEC member charities and their Indonesian partners are working closely with national authorities to provide food, clean water, first aid and shelter, while helping survivors to cope with the trauma of the last few days. As the full scale of devastation unfolds, they are ready to do even more, and with your help, support devastated communities in rebuilding their lives.

DEC Indonesia Tsunami Appeal: Phase 1

Action Against Hunger

Priority needs include logistic support, economic recovery, medical assistance, clean water, sanitation and hygiene, recovery of infrastructure and public services, shelter, protection, including women and children's protection, and education. The Joint Needs Assessment (HFI-led) also found that nearly half of the surveyed population face food shortages. Debris and damaged structures need to be removed to reduce risk of further accidents. Most Water and Sanitation infrastructure was affected either by the loss of springs during the quake, or by destruction of the pipes and civil engineering. Liquefaction has also affected many wells and bore holes. Of the 142 IDP sites, many remain with inadequate access to latrines and water supply. Sanitary conditions have significantly deteriorated since the disaster, leading to an increased risk of communicable diseases such as diarrhoea or skin infections. Planned outcomes: 1. People affected by disaster in Central Sulawesi have recovered access to clean water, proper sanitation facilities, and basic hygiene practice promotion. (within 3 months) 2. People affected by disaster in Central Sulawesi have increased food and nutritional security (within 6 months) Action Against Hunger are proposing a multisectoral intervention with WASH, nutrition and food security components, to be delivered through Yakkum Emergency Unit, a local NGO partner, and Aquassistance, a French partner specialising in water, sanitation and waste management. Action Against Hunger will provide 2 water treatment units, with technicians supporting the installation of the units, and te training of YEU, local government and BNPM staff on their operation and maintenance. YEU will provide water trucking services to 10 affected areas and install two temporary water networks as well as hygiene kits for 1000 household and hygiene promotion activities. YEU will also install disability-accessible latrines in the displacement sites. Environmental cleaning will be enabled through distribution of tools to targeted households to permit the affected population to clear rubble and damaged structures. Nutrition and Food Security: YEU will implement daily community kitchens in each of the displacement sites for two months. The Posyandu health centre will then be supported to provide supplementary feeding to children under 5 that have been identified as in need through active screening by YEU staff - trained nurses and protocols. Further to this, all intervention areas will receive counselling on health and Infant and Young Child Feeding.

Supporting the measurement and enhancement of African children's rights and well-being in nutrition, healthcare and education through a gender lens

UK - Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy

This project contributes to global and regional efforts in measuring and enhancing African children's rights and well-being in nutrition, healthcare and education, with a focus on gender equality and a coverage of 52 African countries. It is an important extension of the exploratory work funded through the 2018-19 ESRC IAA GCRF International Development NGO Data Scheme. This will be the first large-scale, systematic appraisal on the associations between government child-friendliness and child development outcomes, using high-quality macro- and micro-data owned and accessed by the NGO partner, African Child Policy Forum (ACPF). ACPF is a well-established, leading Pan-African NGO based in Ethiopia, specialising in improving the lives of African children. Working closely with ACPF, this project aims to achieve four primary objectives: 1. Tracking changes between 2008-2018 in nutrition, healthcare and education of children in the 52 African countries with available data. This will be achieved through a) analysing longitudinal data provided by ACPF in conjunction with data from the Demographic and Health Survey, Multiple Indicator Cluster Surveys, Performance Monitoring for Action, and Global School-Based Health Survey, on the nature and extent of (mal)nutrition (stunting, wasting, underweight and the Composite Index of Anthropometric Failure), healthcare (availability and accessibility of facilities and the quality of primary and secondary healthcare services), and education (the rates of attending pre-primary, primary and secondary school) over the past decade; and b) testing the reliability and validity of the Child-Friendliness-Index (CFI), developed by ACPF (for monitoring the responsiveness of African governments in meeting child-focused Sustainable Development Goals), in explaining the changes in child nutrition, healthcare and education between 2008 and 2018. 2. Exploring gender disparities in access to nutrition, healthcare and education, in order to provide policymakers with better evidence for the need for gender-responsive laws, policies and practices. This will be achieved through a) identifying significant gender gaps in nutrition, healthcare and education; b) estimating the association between gender gaps and CFI components; and c) analysing qualitative evidence provided by ACPF on how national child protection policies and services shape the lifestyles of girls and their families. 3. Supporting a systematic assessment of African governments' performance in fulfilling their obligations to the rights and well-being of children in nutrition, healthcare and education. This will be achieved by explaining the improvement and/or deterioration in each government's performance, taking into consideration national geographic, demographic, economic and social characteristics as measured by key variables selected and harmonised by ACPF from the World Bank World Development Indicators, the United Nations Development Program Inequality Adjusted Human Development Index and Gender Inequality Index and so forth. 4. Providing an empirical and evidential basis for conversation and advocacy about child rights, development and well-being between local NGOs, policymakers, stakeholders and national and international development organisations (e.g. UNICEF, WHO, UNDP). This will be achieved through a) providing accurate estimates of distributions and disparities of child nutrition, healthcare and education at a sub-national level using small-area-estimations; and b) publishing the results in ACPF's flagship report -- The African Report on Child Well-being 2020: How Friendly are African Governments towards the Girl Child?
