Aninver has signed a new contract to perform consulting services for the Government of The Commonwealth of The Bahamas. The project will be financed through a loan that the Ministry of Finance of The Commonwealth of The Bahamas signed with the Inter-American Development Bank (IADB) (Loan BH-L1033), to implement a Citizen Security and Justice Programme. The overall objectives of this program are to: (i) improve behaviours for non-violent conflict resolution in New Providence; (ii) increase employability and employment of the at-risk youth population in New Providence; (iii) strengthen institutional capabilities of justice services; and (iv) reduce the recidivism rate among persons within the juvenile system.
In order to reach the first of the loan’s objectives, the Ministry of National Security will apply part of the proceeds of this Loan to contract a Aninver to design, develop and deliver a Sustainable Community Center Business Model and Strategic Plan.
The overall objective of this consultancy is to develop a feasibility study which as an output, will design, develop and deliver a Sustainable Community Center Business Model and Strategic Plan that allows Community Centers, totally financed by the Government of The Bahamas to become self-sufficient. Such self-sufficiency may be derived from the proceeds of room rental, a sliding scale for programming fees based on household income, in addition to the sale of items and additional funding streams.
The project has a duration of four months and a budget of USD 119,906. This is the first study of Aninver in The Bahamas and with financing from the IADB.
