Project Incubator in Myanmar


autor: Aleksandra Piasecka


The UNDEF-supported project “Civil Society Organizations Incubation Centre in Chin State, Myanmar” has just been launched by an international team comprising the representatives of the Development Policy Foundation (Poland), the Agency for Basic Community Development (Myanmar) and the Peipsi Center for Transboundary Cooperation (Estonia). FPR has built the consortium, come up with the idea of the Centre and elaborated it into a complete project proposal. Now the Foundation exercises author’s supervision over the project implementation, provides expert support for its activities and co-organizes a study tour to the EU.

The project attempts to address the problems of insufficient competence and fundraising skills among Chin State’s CSOs, lack of their institutional capacity and network as well as lack of experiences and opportunities for project management and implementation. In order to achieve these goals, the Chin CSO Centre, fitted out with computers and internet access, is being currently established in Falam. The Centre will make project-related information available to general public, including handbooks and glossaries developed specially for the sake of the project, both in English and Pawi/Lai (local Chin languages), in hard copies and on a dedicated e-learning platform. The Centre will provide support and space for CSO gatherings and collaboration (running an open door program to foster partnerships and facilitate networking) as well as fundraising backing and on-demand assistance.

Moreover, the Centre will host the Project Incubator for 24 young leaders from Chin CSOs who will be trained and assisted by tutors in writing their own project proposals addressing real local problems (thus learning by doing). During the training, they will be taught how to identify the needs of their communities, look for funding opportunities, write successful and tangible, results-oriented project proposals and launch important initiatives. The authors of the best 12 proposals will be awarded micro-grants for putting their ideas into practice under expert supervision, while 5 most outstanding participants will go on a study tour of Poland and Estonia to benefit from the experiences on democratization and economic transition of the EU project partners. Furthermore, the Incubator’s graduates will cascade the training course to other local Chin CSOs and Chin community leaders, in this way assuring the sustainability of the project. The whole programme is maximally practical, so that its participants get a genuine insight into project development and management and gain relevant hands-on experience.

The project lasts 2 years. The grant amounts to $176k. More information and latest news available on the website http://chin.ngo/ and FB: https://www.facebook.com/Chinngo-237624219919136/
