THE United States government released US $2.4 million to 42 Zambian
Faith Based Organisation (FBOs) in 2004 under the emergency plan,
the US embassy in Lusaka has revealed.
Reacting to Reverend Japhet Ndhlovu's remarks that the US government
had rejected proposals by African FBOs in preference to American
FBOs, public affairs officer at the embassy, Dehab Ghebreab said the
Council of Churches in Zambia (CCZ) was among the recipients in 2004.
" Rev Ndhlovu said at his Press briefing that, under the President's
Emergency Plan for AIDS relief, preference was given to proposals
made by US FBOs over similar proposals made by African FBOs.
" The US embassy wishes to point out that the US government provided
US$2.4 million to 42 Zambian FBOs in 2004 under emergency plan. The
CCZ was among the recipients in 2004," Ms Ghebreab said in a
statement released in Lusaka yesterday.
Ms Ghebreab explained that for 2005, the US government planned to
spend over US$ 5.3 million to fund proposals submitted by 111
Zambian FBOs to help combat HIV/AIDS.
This, she said, would include grant programmes which all Zambian
faith-based and community-based organisations could compete for
funds. The 2005 funding levels targeted for FBOs doubles the 2004
"Selection for emergency plan funding is very competitive and
decisions are made by a review panel based on the quality of
proposals. No preference is given to US based FBOs.
US and Zambian organisations that were not successful in 2005 are
invited to submit proposals for the next cycle in 2006," she said.
