Background

  • The Integrated Child Health and Social Service Award (ICHSSA), Lagos State is a 5-year PEPFAR/USAID funded project in Lagos State. The project has a purpose to provide services to orphans and vulnerable children while strengthening government systems to adequately respond and coordinate these implementation activities. A major objective of this project is to provide care and support services for vulnerable children and their households, especially those infected and affected by HIV.
  • The major tool for sustaining this project is resource mobilization. In previous years majority of funding for OVC programmes have mainly come from the Federal Government, State Government and in limited cases the Local Government Areas. Donations and support from the private sector have largely been undocumented. Most private sector donations have either been a “one off” donation or have come during special events such as Christmas and Children’s’ Day.
  • Till date, the Government has not been able to properly document and ascertain the level of private sector donation and what percentage this contributes to the State budget. This also affects the proper allocation and use of these funds.
  • As a result of this, Project HOPE in collaboration with the State Ministry of Youth and Social Development is working to map private sector organizations who are willing to support OVC programmes and determine:
  • What is their potential in terms of contributing to the OVC programme in Lagos State? If there has been any contributions, and in what form? Past contributions to the Government programme on OVC

  • Analyze trends in the private sector donor environment and develop updated donor profiles (2 days).
