application/pdfPartnership Annual Report-2015Working in partnership is the cornerstone of Save the Children International (SCI)’s Theory of Change and the Country Strategy for Bangladesh. SCI works with local partners to increase the depth and breadth of its programming, but even more importantly to secure sustainability, ownership and the development of a strong civil society that can promote child rights and accountability for children. Bangladesh Country Office has successfully established its partnership framework in 2013, and has created a momentum for rolling-out the framework. In 2013 and 2014, Save the Children Sweden (SCS) and Save the Children Denmark (SCD) supported a TA position on partnership based in Bangladesh, through SIDA and DANIDA funding. The purpose was to strengthen the partnership approach both in Bangladesh and in the region. The Technical Advisor provided support to establish framework and guidance for program and support staff on developing and supporting quality partnerships. This included the various aspects of work of SCI with partners, such as assessments, selection, project planning, capacity building and evaluation. The framework will thus have an impact on activities of SCI with partners, but also on the structures, tools and approaches of SCI itself.27/03/20163MB
application/pdfAnnual Partner Feedback 2015The successes, opportunities and challenges of the Bangladesh Country Office are based to a large extent on how we collaborate with partners. Partners implement over 70% of the program budget. Partnership issues cut across program and support sectors, and require a high level of coordination if we are to ensure quality relationships. The Partnership Framework provides overall guidance, but regular feedback from our partners is crucial to monitoring how well we are implementing Save the Children’s approach to partnerships. The feedback mechanism ensure quality and learning in our collaboration, but they also ensures that we live up to our principles in the relationships we have with our partners and with the children and communities we are working together to support. Our partners are asked to complete a Partner Feedback Survey once a year. The survey provides quantifiable scores over time to allow the Country Office to track how our partners rate our partnership practices. The questions encompass areas around financial support, non-financial support (i.e. capacity strengthening), relationship and communication and monitoring, evaluation, accountability and learning.27/03/20161003KB
