Consultancy to develop Resource Mobilization Strategy for the National Commission of Justice, Peace and Caritas (NCJPC)
|Deadline for submission
|April 22, 2024
The National Commission of Justice, Peace, and Caritas (NCJPC) is the one national body of the Catholic Church responsible to oversee the design, delivery, and evaluation of all efforts of the church to deliver charity, development, and social justice.
NCJPC lacks a proper strategy for internal and external mobilization of resources. With its legal status, the organization could access donor funding for programs and projects if an effective resource mobilization strategy is developed. The organization must work to ensure it has sufficient ability to raise the funds required to achieve its strategic goals and cover its
operational expenditure. There is huge potential to access donor funding for programs and projects relating to NCJPC core focus areas. Additionally, the Church serves as a potential resource to sustain NCJPC programs.
If the proper mechanisms are in place, NCJPC could become an effective link between partners and regional offices and the coordinated approach for all programs in the Catholic Church of Liberia
