DSW: Feasibility Study for the “Zukunft Sichern” programme in Uganda

Mainlevel’s Contribution

Mainlevel consultants Alice van Caubergh and Lukas von Petersdorff-Campen travelled to Mityana district in Uganda to conduct a feasibility study advising the consortium and donors on whether the proposed “Zukunft Sichern” (Securing Future) programme is well founded and meets all identified needs. Their main objective for this project is to provide decision makers with sufficient information, on the opportunities and risks of the stated programme.

The study delivers the following:

  • an assessment of the relevance of the proposed initiative and its activities to address the problems identified in the target groups and target sectors;
  • an assessment of the proposed logical framework including outcomes and outputs and respective indicators and assumptions, risks and risk mitigation strategies;
  • a detailed analysis of the potential sustainability of the program results;
  • an assessment of the synergies and complementarities of the program, including between programmatic areas (sectors) and program stakeholders;
  • an assessment of the feasibility of the financing proposal in relation to the program activities;
  • an assessment of the program organisation and any phasing of activities considered necessary, including considerations around the institutional structure required for program implementation and
  • recommendations for any further actions (including program modifications).


Background Information

The “Zukunft Sichern” (Securing Future) programme is collectively planned by Deutsche Stiftung Weltbevölkerung, Siemens Stiftung and Hanns R. Neumann Foundations to improve the prospects of young people in rural areas of East Africa. By uniting their expertise, networks and potentials for innovation as well as the cooperation of local development partners, the consortium intends to empower girls and boys to actively shape developmental processes and to have their voice heard in the respective policy processes.

Starting in Uganda, the programme will follow a holistic approach. This includes elements of economic empowerment, access to gender-sensitive health and social services, youth participation in decision-making, access to renewable energy and safe water and access to quality vocational for targeted rural youths (and their families) in Mityana district, Uganda.
