PER SERVICE

Coaching on management for change

We coach institution management and staff on management strategies for change. We target  institutions that aims for progress and a sustainable economy.
 

 The outcome challenges are that scientific institutions in SSA are used to have free support from the Aid sector with fragile accountability structures, and that this has created a “help-me” or “save-me” mind-set rather than an equal partnership win-win approach.

Management for Change

55 participants (researchers 20, technicians 15, social entrepreneurs 10 and development stakeholders 5)  in four on-line trainings and 25 passed the examination.

Lesson learned & informed decision
We noticed a lack of measurable outcome from the training events. During 2021 have we therefore introduced a fee of EUR 10 per participant in order to filter out more serious participants, challenge the aid mentality and contribute to the coordination costs at the HR&S local offices. We also introduced an examination session and gave a certificate to those who managed the examination. In average 50 % of participants passed the exam and received certificates.

Outcome
2021, fee EUR 10 per participant

  • One 10 h webinars for researchers by HR&S Sweden with 20 participants, all eight target countries represented.  Passed exam: 50 % of the participants.

    Table banking as a result of Amani Women Group effort. Started many year back.
    Status: On-hold, waiting for proposal from Amani.
    RISE team-leader has visited in 2021 and was well received. Previous investments are most likely lost, partly because HR&S did not have genuine local representation at the time of starting the project and no firm accountability structures.

Liberia

  • IDEFOCS
    Land has been bought, houses constructed and farmland prepared as a result of efforts by IDESFOCS  in Little Bassa, the BRV. This infrastructure constitute a sustainable platform for the re-integration of the war affected before children.
    Status: A one year standstill while IDEFOCS waited for more money and HR&S argued for the concept of loans. RISE Liberia was launched and the RISE Liberia team took over the communication, both with IDEFOCS and the Little Bassa community.
  • Little Bassa community
    Covid-19 awareness session by RISE Liberia.
    Prepared for a cold-storage for fish business. This is an effort to link the community with the BRV programme.
    Status: A challenge with the cold-storage was encountered when it was announced that the BRV was located where there are traditional ceremonies and therefore was perceived as disturbing.
  • Ramses & Lionel Initiative
    Providing loans for tuition fees in Liberia (idea). The loans are paid back directly from the employer as part of the salary when the student starts working.

Nigeria

  • NoveleQ
    NoveleQ was registered as an association with the sole purpose of benefiting from FAST. NoveleQ is composed of stakeholders from the previous PRISM project that was managed by the CEO in another setting.

Rwanda

  • Laboratory management. The RISE Rwanda was started late in 2021 and the focus is on access to laboratory equipment.

Togo

  • IARAD:
    Primary education and village mill. IARAD was the first institution that Action10/HR&S worked with. It was a pilot and addressed access to primary education for children in villages. The financial sustainability was addressed through installing a corn mill that would generate a profit. The profit should pay lunch for he children at school. Around 20 children benefited from the school and took their exam from grade six, and the village benefited from the mill
    Lesson: Sustainable economy was never reached and the mistake was to ignore ActionONE as it was IARAD that developed and implemented the ideas and not the villagers. Lesson learned. A certain amount of the funds was also mismanaged and the aid mentality of IARAD could not be changed.
    Status: Closed and the programme was taken over by S.E.VIE. Immediate impact  but not sustainable impact.
  • S.E.VIE:
    – Primary education. S.E.VIE continued with the primary education programme and involved more children. 100 children attended school and managed the exam. 95 % of the SEVIE children managed the exam as compared to 50% national wide. The SEVIE children benefited from extra attention to their challenges.
    200 women and a few men in rural Togo benefited from small loans, training and coaching enabling them to start and maintain small businesses.
    50 women in semi-urban city Tsévie benefited from small loans  and coaching enabling them to start and maintain small businesses.
    – A solar-panel businesses for charging cell-phones, torches and radios in one village in Togo was started. The solar panel also produced light for girls to do home-work after sun-set and their household work was over.
    – A small clinic with a nurse to give immediate health services, birth delivery, snake bites and more.
    – Land has been procured in Togo by HR&S with support from S.E.VIE and constitute a platform for training on agricultural practices for village farmers.
    Lesson: Even though the immediate impact was outstanding the aid mentality within S.E.VIE could not change and sustainable economy never became a goal for the Director, funds was also diverted to other costs than agreed on. The collaboration had to end.
    Status: Closed. RISE Togo was registered to address the aid mentally in the future.
  • Leaders & Development
    2021: We are successful in rural Togo when Milohum and M Yawo has taken over . 120 women and a few men in rural Togo are benefiting loans, training and coaching enabling them to start and maintain small businesses  as a result of the effort of M Yawo and his management team. The Programme is expected to become financially sustainable when enough capital is available for the interest to covet the running costs.
    Status: On-going and successful. More investment capital would be beneficial.

Uganda

  • BanaPads
    Empowered a business locally producing sanitary pads from banana steams and and empowering women to sell the sanitary pads in the villages earning their own profit. We scaled slowly but firmly, empowering 20 business ladies. The CEO spent 2 times one week at the site to give training on the SfC.  The business got a large aid donation from Sida and decided to target aid donations rather than establishing a sustainable economy. When the donations from Sida stopped, the business died, the contact with HR&S broke and the employees where left to manage on their own.
    Status: No contact.
  • Chusa School
    40 (20 +20) young women living in the Kamwokya slum area in Kampala  have been trained and certified in how to work in a hair saloon by Creative Arts 256. The contact had been established by the CEO several years before the programme started. Unfortunately the partner considered it to be a donation and was not interested in paying back the loan. We agreed that HR&S shall try start hair salons and employ the trained women.
    Status: Collaboration closed.

PER PROGRAMME

IARAD

  • Togo
  • Our first partner.
  • Our collaboration concerned primary education in the villages of Togo. The programme was taken over by S.E.VIE , when the Founder of IARAD moved abroad.
    The Founder of SEVIE had been Head of Programme at IARAD, and the transition of the programme was smooth.
  • An effort was made to ensure lunches to the school children by procuring and installing a mill with the intention that the profit would cover the costs for the lunches. The effort was not successfull due to lack of local ownership.

2012: SEK 10,601

Total: SEK 93, 221      EUR 9,200       FCFA 6,000,000

S.E.VIE

  • Togo, Maritime region.
  • 300 childern in the rural villages of Togo went to Primary school and managed the exams as a result of the effort of S.E.VIE. The programmes was closed when all the 300 children had passed their exames after grade six. *
  • 300 women and a few men from nine villages in Togo received loans and training to run small scale businesses during a period of five years as a result of the effort of S.E.VIE. The programme was taken over by M. Yawo when it was found that it could not become financially sustainable. M. Yawo has closer relations with the villages.*
  • 50 women in the semi-uban city Tsévié received loans and  run small scale businesses during a period of two years. The programme was closed in 2021, as it was found that it could not become financially sustainable.
  • HR&S has invested in a mill, solar panels and a piece of land. The amount invested equals FCFA 6,500,000. The good thing is that these assets are still available, ready to build social enterprises around.

Reflections

As we are concluding the previous joint efforts between HR&S, Action10 and S.E.VIE and looking forward to new events, we need to make a concluding report. The lesson learned is that it was not possible to develop a sustainable programme. As we all know, the HR&S – Action10 targets social enterprising and sustainable economy, instead of aid dependency. It is our responsibility towards the undeserved population to offer programmes that will reduce poverty, rather than, like the aid programmed do, increase poverty.
The total amount transferred to SEVIE from Action10 so far is FCFA 20,600,000. In addition FCFA 6,000,000 was transferred from Action10 to IARAD to cater for primary school education, when Francois was Head of Programme at IARAD. Thus, in total FCFA 26,600,000. It seems to be a good opportunity to create a sustainable programme, that can continuously serve the poor. Some of this money will now be transferred back to Action10 (via RISE Togo), so that we can re-think and come up with a programme that will actually be financially sustainable.
In addition HR&S has through S.E.VIE invested in a mill, solar panels and a piece of land. The amount invested equals FCFA 6,500,000. The good thing is that these assets are still available, ready to build social enterprises around. Transfers from Action10 and HR&S together then amounts to FCFA 33,100,000. To this can be added the costs of several visits by Action10 and HR&S teams.
The collaboration with IARAD started 2009 and this collaboration was taken over by SEVIE 2012.

Managing lessons learned & informed decisions

Lessons learned and Informed decisions are announced on the partner website as they appear. HR&S develops organically. 
Every strategy and new strategy is tested against progress markers. The progress markers, outcome and impact guides further actions. HR&S does not go against progress markers and outcome.
For example, one progress marker is the number of publications where HR&S have been acknowledged. If researchers depend on external support to manage, they will not be able to publish and there will be no such outcome, why free training events, or support with having research grants or free pieces of equipmnet, consumables, IT, or administration, shall not be offered. But coaching to insitution managements on Progress markers, and as part of generating high scores on the progress markers, insitutions may request and pay full price for HR&S training to researchers on the Startegy for Change.
