The Somali Cash Consortium is led by Concern Worldwide, its members include ACTED, Danish Refugee Council, Norwegian Refugee Council, Save the Children, COOPI and IMPACT Initiatives and is significantly funded by the Directorate-General for European Civil Protection and Humanitarian Aid Operations (ECHO). The Consortium, through NGOs, supported by EU humanitarian aid and other institutional donors, provides life-saving multi-purpose cash to vulnerable Somali communities, exclusively through mobile-money transfers. Since the Cash Consortium began work in Jan 2018, it has provided assistance to over 600,000 Somalis. It is building better and more robust cash transfer systems, by working with all stakeholders to streamline each stage of the cash-transfer process; from community registrations to payment aggregation, reporting, forecasting and coordination.
The Cash Consortium in collaboration with the Donor Working Group Technical Assistance Facility (TAF) and in partnership with Government authorities, Save the Children (SCI), the World Food Programme (WFP) and the Building Resilient Communities in Somalia (BRCiS) consortium is tasked to undertake a shock responsive cash transfer safety net pilot.
The Cash Consortium is looking for a learning partner to help the Consortium and stakeholders derive and disseminate learnings from the pilots. With a focus on: Learning on process and protocols; Communication & accountability and trigger analysis and coordination mechanism.
