The Nelson Mandela Foundation (NMF) in collaboration with The Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH, working on behalf of the German Government, seeks expressions of interest from experienced NGOs that are interested in and capable of implementing the community dialogues in all South African Provinces. These NGOs will be trained on the tried-and-tested Community Capacity Enhancement (CCE) methodology. The NGO’s in turn will receive funding directly from GIZ and will be expected to identify and train local and community based NGOs to implement the community dialogues at the district and community level.

The aim of the community dialogue programme is to build relationships based on trust and mutual respect, providing a space for individuals, community organisations, government and faith-based institutions to engage constructively in addressing the social drivers of the HIV/AIDS epidemic. After three successful years the NMF and GIZ are handing the programme over to non-governmental organisations (NGOs), Government and communities concerned.
The NOG’s must have the experience in:
– successful implementation of at least 3 major HIV/AIDS prevention and/or social change projects in the last 2 years with a budget of at least 500,000 Rand each (proof requested);
– Experience with community conversations is of advantage;
