2 Outline of the Presentation
Understanding the Route to desired changes . Key propositions of the Tilitonse Route to desired changes How will CSO projects achieve Tilitonse programme results © Tilitonse 2014

3 An Analogy of a Route to desired changes
How does one get to Mangochi from Lilongwe? via Lakeshore (Salima) or Dedza using Bus, vehicle or flight Assuming one has started off, what are some of the things to be seen immediately for one to be sure that you are indeed on the way to Mangochi? What are some of things to be seen on the “way” for one to be sure that you are indeed going to Mangochi? © Tilitonse 2014

4 Which Pathway statement is better?
“ If you get a bus that departs Lilongwe at 7am, you will arrive in Mangochi by 12:00pm via Lakeshore” “If you get an AXA bus that departs Lilongwe depot at 7am, you will go through Salima, Monkey and then arrive at Mangochi Boma by 12:00pm”

5 The Tilitonse Theory of Change
What is it? What is a pathway/route in the context of the Tilitonse Programme and funded projects? It is a statement about how something happens/change occurs in a clear and coherent manner. ‘An explanation of the causal links that relate to what a program intends to do, expected program results on the “way”, and the final results upon reaching the final destination. © Tilitonse 2014

6 The Tilitonse Pathway “Increased levels of citizen action, citizen-state interaction and participatory governance, especially at community and district levels, can create increased responsiveness in duty bearers and power holders in and outside government that will lead to improved delivery of basic services, greater social inclusion, and increased accountability.” © Tilitonse 2014

7 The Tilitonse Pathway “Strengthened citizen voice and action will lead to better governance in terms of inclusivity, accountability, and responsiveness”.

8 Key Proposition of the Tilitonse Route to desired changes
Key proposition of the Tilitonse pathway of change (Refer to the Theory of Change Diagram): Strengthened citizen voice will lead to better governance in terms of inclusivity, accountability, and responsiveness. Tilitonse Outcome: Citizen voice in achieving more inclusive, accountable and responsive governance strengthened Tilitonse Overall Impact: Governance in Malawi is increasingly inclusive, accountable and responsive. Tilitonse Outputs: are means or ways to the delivery of the citizen voice © Tilitonse 2014

9 How will the desired changes be achieved?
By supporting CSOs to implement projects that will contribute towards achievement of Tilitonse’s intended outcomes and impacts. The proposed project concept notes must demonstrate contribution towards achievement of one (or more) of the 4 Tilitonse outputs: Increased capacity of CSOs to enable citizens, particularly poor and excluded groups, to claim their rights. Increased access to information on rights, entitlements and responsibilities especially for poor and excluded citizens in different domains. Strengthened monitoring by Malawian organisations of public policy and budget commitments, service delivery and public resource management at both national and local levels. Improved engagement of Malawian organisations in influencing policies, strategies, and resource allocations at local and national levels . © Tilitonse 2014

10 What does this mean? Every project must have a route for moving away from a problem situation to a desired state. A project must chose the right issues. The route of change should be informed by the context, working environment , stakeholders and understanding of the power dynamics. Voice alone may not do it- there is need for action involving various players with POWER and influence The project route of change must mirror or fit with that of the Tilitonse programme in the following manner: Results to be delivered should relate to the Tilitonse outputs, outcome and Impact levels. © Tilitonse 2014
