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.

East Africa Crisis Appeal

Disasters Emergency Committee

Hunger on a massive scale is looming across East Africa. If we don’t act now, it will get much worse. Drought and conflict have left 16 million people on the brink of starvation and in urgent need of food, water and medical treatment. People are already dying in South Sudan and Somalia. In Kenya, the government has declared a national emergency and Ethiopia is battling a new wave of drought following the strongest El Nino on record. Women, children and older people are suffering the most; more than 800,000 children under five are severely malnourished. Without immediate treatment, they are at risk of starving to death.  DEC member charities are already delivering life-saving assistance in all affected countries. But, they need more money to help reduce the scale and severity of the crisis.

Cyclone Idai Appeal

Disasters Emergency Committee

Cyclone Idai swept through Mozambique, Malawi and Zimbabwe leaving behind a trail of destruction, killing at least 960 people and leaving around 3 million in need of help. Strong winds and widespread flooding ripped apart roads, bridges, houses, schools and health facilities and submerged vast swathes of agricultural land. As flood levels recede, work to clear debris, reopen roads and reconnect electricity and water supplies is underway. Some people who fled their homes as flood waters rose are returning home but more than 230,000 remain displaced across three countries and are living in communal sites such as schools and churches. A growing number of cholera cases have been confirmed and there is a high risk of outbreaks of other waterborne diseases as supplying clean water remains a significant challenge. The aid effort is fully underway and DEC member charities are working closely with national partners to support government-led relief efforts. They are prioritising the delivery of clean water, building toilets and handwashing facilities to tackle the outbreak of cholera. They are also delivering emergency shelter materials and blankets, food such as pulses and maize flour, and urgent health assistance. Focusing on longer-term food security and rehabilitation of livelihoods is paramount and some members are already providing seeds and tools to communities.

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.

Caritas and CIMI Tefe EU project support costs

Catholic Agency for Overseas Development

This project is a support costs budget to the BRA557 EU and CAFOD co-funded project. It covers capacity building on monitoring, financial management, compliance, four additional educators, and additional training/advocacy activities with indigenous communities that were not possible to include in the EU project, to ensure outcomes are achieved and the project is managed efficiently. Please see below for the summary from BRA557: The civil, political and human rights of indigenous peoples are seriously threatened in Brazil. In 2013, there were 4,085 cases of violence against indigenous people, and 616 indigenous deaths from violence reported since 2003. In 2014, 23 cases were reported inciting violence against indigenous peoples in the national media. Several legislative proposals are proposed that threaten indigenous constitutional rights such as the PEC 215 which proposes to transfer authority for land demarcation to the executive, and Bill 1610 which proposes mining in indigenous lands. In 2014 the region of Rio Solimoes experienced serious violations of indigenous civil and political rights, including electoral coercion, denial of participation and autonomy in choosing representatives in spaces of social control, and 90 cases of misappropriation of benefits and personal ID cards. At local level, indigenous leaders, communities, and organisations fear reprisals and lack knowledge, capacity for dialogue and autonomy to lobby and advocate for their rights, and public agencies are slow and negligent in their role to implement, monitor and protect indigenous rights. General objective: To contribute to strengthening the capacities of indigenous leaders and organisations to defend and protect indigenous people’s civil and political constitutional rights. Specific objective: To strengthen the capacity of indigenous leaders and organisations in the region of Rio Solimões e Afluentes to participate in consultation and decision-making processes, influence public policy, and ensure the protection of indigenous civil, political and human rights. This will be achieved via three key activities: 1) political and juridical training of indigenous leaders and organisations; 2) advocacy of governmental agencies to implement public policies that defend indigenous political and civil rights; and 3) institutional strengthening of indigenous organisations in political negotiation, communication and public campaigning.

Catholic faith leaders transforming interfaith relations in Myanmar

Catholic Agency for Overseas Development

This project started as a pilot project in 2016 to promote the Catholic Church role on interfaith work in Myanmar. Now it is based on 3 main pillar that have been identified by CBCM: The role and disposition of the Catholic Church in Myanmar to be active and support interreligious dialogue for peace and nation building; the involvement of all levels from Bishops to Parish Priests, as well as leaders from other religions; and the will to expand this initiative to other Dioceses (currently is just in 2 out of 16 which are Pathein and Yangon). The project is based on the "Mission planning for nation building" process which involves bishops, priests, nuns and laypeople, and has the purpose of bringing people together as one mind and one heart to find a common platform to effectively contribute to the building of the nation. Under this project CBCM with the support of CAFOD will build capacity on parish priests and lay people in order to contribute to peace and the building of the nation at the local level by working on intrafaith (with other Christian denominations such as Baptist and Anglican) and interfaith (predominantly with Buddhists, Muslims and Hindus). For this, priests and lay people will receive knowledge and skills required to work on these issues as well as technical and financial support to organize and promote activities within their communities for peace and interfaith relations. This project is supported by the CBCM interreligious dialogue commission formed by Patron Emeritus Archbishop Paul Grawng (Mandalay), Chairman Bishop John Hsane Hgyi (Pathein), Bishop John Saw Yaw Han (Yangon), Fr. Henry Director of KMSS Pathein, and Fr. Joseph Mg Win Director of KMSS Yangon.

The Guatemalan Federation of Radio Education (FGER) has been a CAFOD partner since the early 1980s and believes that media should work to ensure the free flow of information and to tackle discrimination. FGER is a federation of indigenous community radio stations, located mainly in the north, west and east of Guatemala, with a potential audience of near eight million (52% women and 48% men), representing about half the population of Guatemala. Indigenous communities involved include the Mam, Chortí, Tzutujil, Q’eqchi, Mopan, Poqomchi, Achi, Kiche, Kaqchikel, Pocomam, Kanjobal, Garífuna and Xinca ethnic groups. Audience participation is encouraged by broadcasting programmes directly from outlying villages, generating public debate and allowing local people to voice their opinions. FGER is currently made up of 7 affiliated and 18 allied radio stations and continues to expand its coverage through transmission via its satellite network and apps for mobile phones. It also works closely with other CAFOD partners on human rights issues. It is part of numerous national and international communication alliances. With this project, FGER aims to strengthen the access to communication and analysis for popular sectors and the generation of information on the rights and demands of the most vulnerable sectors, particularly of women and Indigenous Peoples, for the integral defence of their human rights. Through the development of alternative and competent media (radio), FGER can influence the national agenda on citizen and community participation, gender equity and cultural identity, in alliance and coordination with other social sectors.
