Course Information

Workshop Description

Since the 1980s, NGOs have participated in the development of their nations especially at the rural/community levels. In addition, NGOs have participated actively in public/social policy formulation and implementation in various countries through advocacy. In Ghana, the onset of HIV and AIDS also led to proliferation on many NGOs as the need to mitigate social and economic effects became necessary.

As NGOs get established and grow, there is the need to ensure quality of leadership which will intend impact quality of the work of these organizations.

 

Secondly, Competition among NGOs in the delivery of services and in the acquisition of donor funding is rising. To achieve success, NGOs have to continually improve and professionalize their work, which put more and more demands on the Management and leadership of an organization.

 

Thirdly, the work of NGOS are enhanced, when the right policies are in place and are enforced by government. Advocacy therefore is an integral part of NGOs work even if it is not explicitly stated in the vision and mission of the organization.

 

This workshop is for NGOs in Health, Education, Advocacy, Child Rights, Women’s Rights, Human Rights, Poverty Reduction, and other areas of development work. Government agencies and donor partners who work closely with NGOs will also find the workshop beneficial.
