Bid announcement for Conducting Feasibility Study and Develop a bundle of Business Plans for establishing “Private for Public-Business wing”- of FGAE

The Family Guidance Association of Ethiopia (FGAE) is an Ethiopian Resident Charity Organization playing a pivotal role in the introduction and expansion of family planning and other sexual and reproductive health services in Ethiopia. It has been contributing to the national effort to meet the high” unmet need in the country for over half a century since 1966.

Although FGAE has been providing SRH/FP services for half a century, current evidence depicts that FGAE’s funding portfolio is heavily donor dependent

i.e the financial and institutional sustainability is among the major challenges to FGAE. Some efforts have been made to generate local income from service fees, drug sales, and trainings. But the income generated so far is very minimal.

To put FGAE on track for achieving greater self-sufficiency and enhance sustainability it needs to conduct a detailed analysis of local income generation opportunities of its current revenue streams and conduct a Feasibility Study so as to develop a viable bundle of Social Enterprise Business plans.
