An Analogy of a Route to desired changes
• How does one get to Mangochi from
via Lakeshore (Salima) or Dedza
using Bus, vehicle or flight
Assuming one has started off, what are some of the
things to be seen immediately for one to be sure that
you are indeed on the way to Mangochi?
What are some of things to be seen on the “way” for
one to be sure that you are indeed going to Mangochi?

Which Pathway statement is better?
• “ If you get a bus that departs Lilongwe at
7am, you will arrive in Mangochi by 12:00pm
via Lakeshore”
• “If you get an AXA bus that departs Lilongwe
depot at 7am, you will go through Salima,
Monkey and then arrive at Mangochi Boma by
The Tilitonse Theory of Change
What is it?
What is a pathway/route in the context of the
Tilitonse Programme and funded projects?
• It is a statement about how something happens/change occurs in
a clear and coherent manner.
• ‘An explanation of the causal links that relate to what a program
intends to do, expected program results on the “way”, and the
final results upon reaching the final destination.

The Tilitonse Pathway
• “Increased levels of citizen action, citizen-state
interaction and participatory governance,
especially at community and district levels, can
create increased responsiveness in duty bearers
and power holders in and outside government
that will lead to improved delivery of basic
services, greater social inclusion, and increased

Key Proposition of the Tilitonse Route to desired
Key proposition of the Tilitonse pathway of change (Refer to the Theory
of Change Diagram):
Strengthened citizen voice will lead to better governance in terms of
inclusivity, accountability, and responsiveness.
Tilitonse Outcome: Citizen voice in achieving more inclusive,
accountable and responsive governance strengthened
Tilitonse Overall Impact: Governance in Malawi is increasingly

How will the desired changes be achieved?
By supporting CSOs to implement projects that will contribute towards
achievement of Tilitonse’s intended outcomes and impacts.
The proposed project concept notes must demonstrate contribution towards
achievement of one (or more) of the 4 Tilitonse outputs:
Increased capacity of CSOs to enable citizens, particularly poor and excluded
groups, to claim their rights.
Increased access to information on rights, entitlements and responsibilities
especially for poor and excluded citizens in different domains.
Strengthened monitoring by Malawian organisations of public policy and
budget commitments, service delivery and public resource management at
both national and local levels.
Improved engagement of Malawian organisations in influencing policies,
strategies, and resource allocations at local and national levels .

What does this mean?
Every project must have a route for moving away from a
problem situation to a desired state. A project must chose
the right issues.
The route of change should be informed by the context,
working environment , stakeholders and understanding of
the power dynamics.
Voice alone may not do it- there is need for action involving
various players with POWER and influence
The project route of change must mirror or fit with that of
the Tilitonse programme in the following manner: Results
to be delivered should relate to the Tilitonse outputs,
outcome and Impact levels.
