Deadline: 19 November 2014
The United States Agency for International Development Mission in Tanzania (USAID/Tanzania) anticipates a five-year cooperative agreement for a project entitled Caring for Children and Empowering Young People (C2EYP). The project targets the most vulnerable children (MVC) and young people, orphaned and vulnerable children (OVC).
Under this project, USAID seeks to enable more MVC and other young people to access services for improving health, nutrition, education, protection, livelihoods and psychosocial well-being. For achieving this, the project will build the capacity of caregivers to provide care and access to services for their children and young people. The program also seeks to improve and expand age-appropriate service utilization for children and young people, especially hard-to-reach children.
USAID is focusing the project in seventeen regions, divided preliminarily into five zones.
- Lake: Geita, Tabora, Kagera, Mara, Mwanza, Simiyu
- Southern Highlands: Mbeya, Rukwa, Ruvuma, Katavi
- Central Dodoma: Dodoma, Iringa, Njombe, Singida
- Coastal: Dar es Salaam, Unguja
