'The Harare based African Capacity Building Foundation (ACBF) recently entered into a strategic partnership with the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation through which ACBF will advance evidence-based tobacco control policy in Africa through support to African civil organizations (CSOs). ACBF will serve as a strategic grant maker, capacity builder, and effectively coordinate with others working in tobacco control on the continent. The deliverables of the Foundation under this assignment include grant making and capacity building of the Centre for Tobacco Control in Africa (CTCA), a regional center of excellence in tobacco control based in Kampala, Uganda and to civil service organizations operating in the tobacco control sector in Africa." They are looking for a 'Consultant Program Officer' and an administrative assistant.
The deadline to submit an application is July 27. I have not yet found information about the budget awarded by the Gates Foundation.
While researching for this post I found this very interesting interview of Frannie Léautier who used to be ACBF's Executive Secretary, about evaluation and monitoring results. Since December 2013 ACBF's Executive Secretary is Emmanuel Nnadozie.
