This report covers the period of 01/01/2007 to 30/06/07 for 2006-2007 Appeal.

In a world of global challenges, continued poverty, inequity, and increasing vulnerability to disasters and disease, the International Federation with its global network, works to accomplish its Global Agenda, partnering with local community and civil society to prevent and alleviate human suffering from disasters, diseases and public health emergencies.

In brief

Programme Summary: Organizational development continued to take prominence in the five National Societies of Burundi, Kenya, Rwanda, Tanzania and Uganda, all of whom made impressive progress towards advancing the decentralization agenda. In collaboration with Partner National Societies and the Federation, these National Societies managed to recruit and train new management staff, and increase the volunteer and membership base at branch levels. All the five National Societies will be provided with technical support in the implementation of the Lake Victoria Programme and more so in taking on board recommendations brought out during the recent evaluation of the programme.
