      Narrative and Financial Reporting

      Please note:
      MISEREOR/KZE will never ask partner organisations by email to transfer any amounts of money to bank accounts of third parties. Any such requests are attempts at fraud. Please be alert at all times, and should you have any questions immediately contact the MISEREOR/KZE member of staff known to you by phone. Thank you.

      Guideline

      Project reporting is designed to benefit first and foremost the target groups themselves. It should enable them to review changes that they faced or that they themselves brought about through the project, to draw comparisons between what was planned and what was actually achieved, and to reflect on what all this means for further work.

      At the same time MISEREOR is accountable to its funders and donors. This is why we require the information specified below on the projects we support.

      Discussion Paper

      MISEREOR has always seen participation of the poor, their access to public services, economic resources and political decision-making processes, as an indispensable element of poverty alleviation. Participation is at the same time a goal, a principle and an instrument of development cooperation designed to sustainably improve the living conditions and the dignity of the poor. This comprehensive understanding of participation is rooted in the call for social justice and the preferential option for the poor, which are guiding principles of Christian social ethics...

      Orientation Framework

      Since 1958 MISEREOR has been cooperating with partners in Asia and Oceania. Working in a spirit of partnership has been a guiding principle from the outset: our partners in Asia and Oceania are themselves best placed to analyse the specific challenges and then to plan and implement corresponding responses. We seek an open dialogue with our partners that permits criticism from both sides and the sharing of experience.

      Information Document

      At MISEREOR we promote projects that support poor and disadvantaged people in Africa, Asia and Latin America in becoming autonomous. In this context we need to ask how we and how you – our partner organisation – define the “autonomy of poor target group”. How is this strengthening of autonomy reflected in the projects?
      We would like to use this information document to dialogue with you, so that we can compare notes and exchange ideas on the autonomy of poor target groups.

      MISEREOR seeks to provide you with methods and tools that can help to make vocational education and training more effective. The greater the training institution’s familiarity with the market, the higher the number of graduates who will be able to find a job or become successfully self-employed.
      A market orientation in vocational training therefore means gearing training to market demand. Any form of market analysis or market survey in vocational training aims to identify what skills and abilities the market wants or what services and products the market needs; this information can then be used to improve the employment prospects and earnings of graduates.

      Manual

      This manual is directed at all vocational training partners. It provides practical and methodological guidance on how issues relating to the capturing of results can be more firmly incorporated into the monitoring system of a vocational training project.

      MISEREOR adopts a broad approach to vocational training that covers both non-formal/informal training measures to develop vocational and social skills and projects that focus on the acquisition of technical skills in a formal context. It aims to consider the target group’s overall pathway into work so that the appropriate
      support services can then be developed. Promoting employability by improving basic education, encouraging a career-oriented outlook and developing life skills are just as important in this as teaching specific technical skills.

      Guide

      The guide provides comprehensive information on HIV/AIDS mainstreaming and assists project staff to identify ways to effectively address the root causes of HIV infection and to mitigate the effects of HIV and AIDS on their core activities. It also addresses HIV and AIDS issues concerning staff within an organization.
      The guide was developed and revised in conjunction with Misereor partners in the South. Many of the examples and explanations were taken from African contexts; nevertheless the guide is designed to be used also in Asian and Latin American countries. Therefore you will also find references to non-African countries in this guide.

      Good practice examples from India

      India has the third-largest number of people living with HIV in the world. Misereor supports Indian partner organisations dealing with development work and health care services. Misereor aims to strengthen partner organisations to deliver good-quality health services where it is needed most.

      This document gives an overview of the HIV epidemic in India and describes good practice examples in comprehensive HIV prevention, treatment, care and support, focusing on cen-tres providing medical and community care. These three community care centres (two in Andhra Pradesh and one in Tamil Nadu) are members of the Catholic Health Association of India, who is supported by Misereor. For each of these centres, it describes the history and current activities, illustrated by stories of the centre’s staff and the patients, who benefit from their services. The document ends by identifying some key aspects, which have led to the centres’ success.

      Information about HIV and AIDS in local languages

      In Malawi, as in many other African countries, there is still a serious lack of information about HIV and AIDS, sex and gender issues, especially in local languages. The Misereor partner Youth Activists Initiative Organisation (YAIO) decided to confront this problem head-on. Their motto "Developing Creative Minds" is an apt description of their ideals.

      For a number of years, there has been an ongoing debate within MISEREOR concerning the preparation of promotion guidelines for various sectors. The following guidelines have now been established for the promotion of programmes and projects in the water sector in Africa, one of the key segment of MISEREOR's promotion.
      The promotion of water programmes in Africa will be oriented towards newly-defined goals and quality criteria. The latter should be discussed with our partner organisations so as to adapt them to the respective country contexts.
