During the third year of the Building Capacity to Use Research Evidence (BCURE) programme, the VakaYiko consortium will implement a mentorship programme for beneficiary institutions in Zimbabwe: the Parliament of Zimbabwe: Ministry of Industry and Commerce; and Ministry of Youth, Indigenisation and Economic Empowerment. The main purpose of this initiative is to sustain and build on the momentum gained during the Evidence-Informed Policy Making (EIPM) course, which comes to an end in September 2015. Six participants from the courses, drawn from across from the three institutions, will be selected to take part in the mentorship programme. The programme aims to build a small core of individuals with more in-depth experience of using evidence to inform policy decisions and to act as focal points and advocates for EIPM within their institutions. This report describes the approach that the mentoring programme will take.
