Strategic plan and work-stream of EFCA-Tajikistan for 2019-2021 Tajikistan

  • Civil society in Tajikistan is weakening. EFCA is facing stiff competition in the development of this sector. EFCA reconsiders its approaches and/or reorient its activities in line with the changing environment to maintain competitiveness and relevance;
  • EFCA is better to sell its current products and/or to develop new products to attract additional donors;
  • EFCA in Tajikistan is quite competitive, high level of professionalism and standards among local NGOs and low cost services among international NGOs;
  • For the last 5 years there is a clear vision that the market of donor funding is reduced and the level of competition grows. As a result, EFCA started to attract smaller grants from 15 to 25 thousand dollars and it is interested in continuing this practice.
  • Recent changes and development in the market shows that EFCA is the time to change its focus from the strategy of "concentration proposal" and to aim at "meeting the demand" of the organizations. This means that EFCA is developing and creating demand for their products and services. The main efforts is aimed to tailor product and service in accordance with the needs of donors.
