To be a leading Africa homegrown provider of development accountability solutions in sub-Saharan Africa.
To improve accountability and development results.
- Value for Money
To deliver high quality and reputable services to our partners and clients, our approach is to engage the best suited project staff for the assignment, ensure global best practices are used, and engage the client throughout the whole process. We assign a Project Manager who oversees the contractual and implementation aspects, as well as ensure that deliverables from our expert teams meet internal quality standards and satisfy the client terms of reference. MDS staff in our Harare office are complemented by a broad database of subject experts with whom we have successfully worked in the past. We are thus able to respond to any assignment and level of technical depth. In fact, most of our partners value the combination of international experts (who bring in global experience and practice) and local expertise (essential for understanding local policies, culture, practices as well as institutional access). In addition, we are capable of providing technical backstopping wherever and whenever required to ensure timely delivery.
Our company is made up of individuals who are passionate about development. These are individuals who do not take their technical expertise as a profession but as a duty to ensure that extreme poverty is eradicated, the quality of life of women and children is improved and states are able to sustainably support development of their citizens in an open and accountable manner.
How we organise our teams:
Our teams are driven by client specific needs but always include a mix of monitoring and evaluation expertise and technical experts for the sector. We believe in delivering locally adept and globally informed solutions that aim to deliver specific solutions for challenges facing implementers or questions that need to be answered around accountability and implementation. Thus depending on the client’s needs we build our teams with the following focus:
- international expertise
- regional expertise
- local expertise
- monitoring and evaluation expertise
- sectoral expertise.
In any given assignment our teams provide international, regional and local knowledge and good practices in accountability and the sector. Our associated senior staff include seasoned monitoring and evaluation, project management and technical assistance experts from the African continent.
