In September 2014 the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) entered into a 5 year Cooperative Agreement with Counterpart International for a project titled Fostering Accountability and Transparency (FACT) in Zambia. This project is funded by the USAID Global Civil Society Strengthening Leader with Associates Award (GCSS LWA).
Counterpart International is a global development organisation that empowers people and communities to implement innovative and enduring solutions to social, economic, and environmental challenges. For 50 years, Counterpart has been forging partnerships with communities across the globe to address complex development challenges and building effective governance and institutions.

Project summary
FACT is a five-year project to enhance the capacity of targeted civil society organizations (CSOs) in order to increase opportunities for citizens to engage effectively with government. FACT will contribute to USAID’s highest priority in Zambia, Development Objective 1 Enabling Governance Environment Improved, by increasing citizen demand for transparent and accountable service delivery.
The Goal of FACT is to improve the enabling governance environment of Zambia by increasing citizen demand for effective, transparent, and accountable service delivery.
The Program activities fall within two program objectives:
Objective 1 – Strengthen capacity of local Civil Society Organizations to enhance delivery and oversight of public service delivery in the education, health/HIV, sustainable rural livelihoods and environment sectors.
Objective 2: Improved engagement between citizens and government service providers in the education, health/HIV, sustainable rural livelihoods and environment sectors to improve service delivery.
FACT has in its mandate to promote the participation and active inclusion of marginalized persons including young women, youth, women and the differently bled persons. In an effort to encourage and track changes in gender and inclusive mainstreaming, a Gender and Inclusive strategy was developed to support this work. In November, 2015 during the capacity strengthening workshop, a gender session was included in the training to assess the level at which the partners understand and are integrating gender in their work. This subsequently led a gender transformation workshop in March,2016, which sought to agitate and galvanize the partners to develop clear and concrete actions to take the gender and inclusive integration work forward.
It has become clear that while some partners do have the skills and tools to integrate gender and inclusiveness in their work program, there still remains a gap in some. For instance, the question constantly asked is how do you ensure the active and full participation of women in the community structures and in the public dialogue forums; how do you open the space for youth voice and participation, and more importantly how do you create lasting organizational change that supports work in gender and inclusive programming?
In order answer some of these questions, and offer partners tools, methods and mentoring to build their skill, we plan to hire a Gender Intern for 2-3 months beginning mid-June, 2016.
