Participant Training Programme (PTP) was launched in 23rd July 2014 to cover a period of five years up to June 2019. Fundamentally, the Programme aimed at providing a full range of administrative, program and logistical services in support of USAID/Tanzania’s participant training interventions in education, democracy and governance, economic growth, health, and natural resource management. PTP mainly focused on in country trainings for selected individuals from partner institutions in the Government ministries and civil society beneficiaries, as opposed to provision of third country, and U.S. based training interventions.
During 2019, which was the final year of its implementation PTP successfully trained 25 staff from Benjamini Mkapa Foundation (BMF) on Monitoring and Evaluation: Best Practices incorporating Human-Cantered Design Thinking from 6th- 17th May, 2019. Training was envisaged to build the capacity of BMF staff in the Program and M&E units to analyze and improve operations within the Department to enhance partnerships and collaborative efforts that BMF needs within the health sector. These include partnerships with the Ministry of Health and local government in the allocated zones of Lake Zone, Southern Highlands Zone, Southern Zone, Eastern, Central and Northern Zone.
