Capacity Development and Social Protections
The establishment of a strong Social Accountability Committee (SAC) is one of the innovative approaches of JeCCDO. Establishment of this committee highly contributed to improve basic social services delivery. The SAC at Bishoftu and Bahir Dar towns is playing a significant role in organizing interface meetings between the service providers and service users. As a result, service providers is improving provisions of social services in their localities. Different organizations have been sharing experiences from the SACs, especially SACs located in Bishoftu town.
Engaging in social enterprise is the second innovative approach of JCCDO. It has initiated the Training Center in Bishoftu that generates sustainable income from renting training facilities and other services, and accommodations. The income from this enterprise is allocated for different social development interventions including responses to Internally Displaced People. This innovative approach is also contributing to ensure the institutional and economic sustainability of the organization.
The third innovative approach is the grain bank business being implemented under partners CBOs. The model initiates CBOs to buy different cereals during the harvest time and store it for seasons of scarcity. Therefore, to whoever facing shortage of supply, CBOs sale it with reasonable prices to their members and reduces food shortage burdens thereby helping community members to lead more stable life.
