Too often, development organizations including faith based organizations such as CAPA spend time, effort and money to judiciously carry out development programmes as outlined in their strategy.
The main purpose is usually to make life better for individuals or people that have been systematically marginalized, affected or discriminated against. Very rarely do we take time to reflect and evaluate what is working and what is not working. Additionally, what goes on as Programme work remains too often in the minds of those people who are involved in the day to day execution of these programmes.
This desk study was designed purposely to document the work that CAPA has been involved in during the 2001 2005 period. It provides an opportunity to not only document for future reference purposes but also to inform on-going interventions on the realties and contexts on the ground.
Programme interventions will be modified to reflect realities based on the lessons and findings of these studies. Furthermore this review serves as an important instrument for helping other actors to know what CAPA is doing and build synergies rather than duplicate efforts. It also helps organizations and groups that want to work with us to know how and at what point to engage with us.
The study shares information about CAPA’s work in the 12 Provinces located in 25 countries in Africa. The study highlights the programme activities, vision, mission, challenges and lessons learnt in the course of implementing the HIV/AIDS programme.
The study also shares recommendations for improvement of the programme based on the findings and the conclusions drawn. The findings have been arranged in the order of Provinces which in CAPA’s context refer to its geographical coverage within a country or sub-region.
