Background

The Ministry of Gender, Labour and Social Development (MGLSD) has been a loose conglomeration of directorates and departments, which until recently existed either as separate ministries in their own right or were part of separate Ministries. Following the merger of the different Ministries, the MGLSD became the lead agency in the social development sector with the mandate to empower communities, especially the poor and vulnerable groups to harness their potential through cultural growth, skills development and labour productivity for sustainable and gender responsive development.

The new role of the Ministry requires significant improvements in the current technical, operational and management capacity. This project has therefore been designed to strengthen the capacity of the Ministry and affiliated institutions for effective and efficient service delivery.
