3. Close up, program
45. SOUNDBITE (English) Ronald Mauanja, Relief, Reintegration & Protection Officer, UNMISS:
“Quick Impact Projects are the vehicle by which the mission delivers on its mandate. We’ve observed that there is a plethora of implementing partners who are implementing particular activities out there. However, there is a need to improve the quality of work they do and the manner in which they implement Quick Impact Projects. So, this workshop comes in handy and timely to equip our implementing partners with the basic skills to deliver on Quick Impact Projects, from the formulation to implementation, monitoring and evaluation.”
5. Various shots, participants
6. SOUNDBITE (English) Thuch, QIPs Implementing Partner:
“We are going to improve upon producing competitive proposals that can make the project succeed, because once you don’t do it from the beginning, at the level of the proposal [itself], there is no way you can hope the project succeeds, unless you put some elements of the project in a proper way. I believe we are going to get better in terms of proposal writing and we are also going to get better on the side of implementation of approved proposals.”
7. Med shot, participants
8. Close up, hands writing
9. SOUNDBITE (English) Betty Juan Henry, QIPs Implementing Partner:
“Widows need money so that they can start their businesses, like microfinance. But still we could not get money. We are still trying [to figure out] how to support them.”
10. Various shots, screengrabs of presentation
11. SOUNDBITE (English) Luala Thuch, QIPs Implementing Partner:
“I like implementing Quick Impact Projects because they are very important. Most of the projects that we have implemented have helped the host communities. Like last year we constructed a police station in Terekeka, which is helping now because it is hosting the Office of the Commissioner, which contributes to the security of the local communities.”

STORYLINE:

The United Nations Mission in South Sudan (UNMISS) recently organized a two-day workshop in the country’s capital Juba bringing together local implementing partners which collaborate with the mission in actioning Quick Impact Projects (QIPs) across the world’s newest country.

The event, facilitated by the Relief, Reintegration and Protection Section, aimed at training local partners in Central Equatoria state on the full QIPs spectrum—from writing more effective project proposals, strecngthening the actual implementation phase to monitoring and evaluating the impact of these small-scale, low-cost interventions.

SOUNDBITE (English) Ronald Mauanja, Relief, Reintegration & Protection Officer, UNMISS:
“Quick Impact Projects are the vehicle by which the mission delivers on its mandate. We’ve observed that there is a plethora of implementing partners who are implementing particular activities out there. However, there is a need to improve the quality of work they do and the manner in which they implement Quick Impact Projects. So, this workshop comes in handy and [is] timely to equip our implementing partners with the basic skills to deliver on Quick Impact Projects, from the formulation to implementation, monitoring and evaluation.”

The training sessions were delivered by UNMISS staff who emphasized the necessary tools and skills that local partners need to develop to ensure that every project is effective, implemented within a short time frame and benefits local communities.

SOUNDBITE (English) Luala Thuch, QIPs Implementing Partner:
“We are going to improve upon producing competitive proposals that can make the project succeed, because once you don’t do it from the beginning, at the level of the proposal [itself], there is no way you can hope the project succeeds, unless you put some elements of the project in a proper way. I believe we are going to get better in terms of proposal writing and we are also going to get better on the side of implementation of approved proposals.”

The event had a two-pronged focus: Firstly, to build greater capacity among local partners and, secondly, to provide a platform where UNMISS and its partners can share the challenges they face in actioning such projects. One participant gave an interesting example.

SOUNDBITE (English) Betty Juan Henry, QIPs Implementing Partner:
“Widows need money so that they can start their businesses, like microfinance. But still we could not get money. We are still trying [to figure out] how to support them.”
The most heartwarming part of the workshop was the commitment displayed by many of the mission’s local partners to the QIPs programme and their pride in a job well done.

SOUNDBITE (English) Luala Thuch, QIPs Implementing Partner:
“I like implementing Quick Impact Projects because they are very important. Most of the projects that we have implemented have helped the host communities. Like last year we constructed a police station in Terekeka, which is helping now because it is hosting the
Office of the Commissioner, which contributes to the security of the local communities.”

Quick Impact Projects are a way for UN peacekeeping missions to win the hearts and minds of people, address urgent community needs quickly and garner public support for achieving their mandates.
