Review and update the Project PMF to accurately reflect the extent of the work carried out by WILS


Deliver the leadership training programmes at the village level and engage a strategic approach to selecting participants to ensure that the key decision makers in addition to wide representation from the village, participate. Full engagement of the village council, women’s committee, church Ministers and their wives and youth leaders will contribute greatly to producing and sustaining positive results


Develop a series of short-term modules covering various but related topics to be delivered over a period of time in partnership with other organizations who already deliver these trainings. These could include basic project management, proposal writing, resource mobilization, financial literacy, project monitoring and reporting;


Expand the VDLDI training to include aspects of basic project management, proposal writing and clarify during delivery where WILS role and support ends, what the expectations are of BTIs and the responsibilities of the trainees;


Enhance contextualization of the VDLDI training to better suit the village context and ensure these are documented


Set up a forum for the Trainers to get together for a debriefing and sharing of experiences and lessons learned so that delivery of training is continuously improved and strengthened


Revise the ToT concept to recognize the informal approaches taken by trainees and the effectiveness of these approaches


PMU to continue with their hands on approach to supporting the activities and that current arrangements that enables PMU presence during the activities remain


WILS to track and document success stories to be shared widely with stakeholders


Engage trainees who have successfully implemented their BTIs to share the experiences during training programmes


UNDP / UN Women to carry out regular monitoring activities throughout implementation


Develop an exit strategy to ensure continuity of initiatives and sustainability of results
