We are a non-governmental organisation in Zambia, that deploys monitoring, evaluation and learning services, quality improvement processes, organisational development initiatives, and innovative sustainability approaches, in partnership with donors and NGOs, to strengthen public sector institutions, community-based and grassroots organisations in Zambia. Brasys is a non-profit affiliate of the BroadImpact group.
Our goal is to increase access to health and social protection services for underserved populations, through the strengthening of program management & service delivery systems.
At Brasys, we Brace Systems for Sustainability, this means:
We Strengthen local actors and create Enabling environments (BRACING)
We apply whole systems thinking: People, Processes & Tools (SYSTEMS)
We don’t just “Attain” but aspire to “Sustain” Impact (SUSTAINABILITY)
As we initiate interventions, partnerships with local stakeholders are critical
As programs grow to scale, there must be a gradual and simultaneous tailing off of external actors and increasing leadership of local actors
With deliberate, context-appropriate and systematic capacity transition plans; that allow specific segments to be transitioned on different timeframes, per achievement of systems’ strengthening objectives
Technical support for strategic planning, project management & organisational development.
Capacity building for individuals and institutions delivering services
Identification, promotion, implementation and scale up of high-impact service delivery and quality improvement initiatives
Robust monitoring, evaluation & research systems set up
Knowledge management & communication services support
100% African “owned” and led, a team with multi-country expertise across Sub-Saharan Africa; with first hand experience of the local context.
We believe partnerships work and we hope to become the bridge and conveyor that effectively links international (donors and implementing partners) to local, delivering the necessary ingredients for growth and sustainable transition.
We work closely with public institutions, and CBOs to deliver sustainable impact through skills transfer, hands-on systems strengthening TA and organizational development efforts that foster local ownership of donor funded programs across the country.
