CII – CAP Workshop on Capacity Building for NGOs
“Empowering NGOs, Empowering Indians”
18-19 March 2013, 0930 – 1700 hrs, Forbes Marshall, Mumbai Pune Road, Kasarwadi, Pune 411 034.
Workshop Background & Objectives
When capacity building is successful, it strengthens a non-profit’s ability to fulfil its mission over time, and enhances the non-profit’s ability to have a positive impact on lives and communities.
NGOs concerned with development face the management of a complex and diverse range of issues. NGOs face internal management issues, for example questions of strategic planning, budgeting, staffing, and the governing structure of the organization, growth and change within the organization. NGOs also face the management of external relationships; relations with government, the private sector, other NGOs and with their target communities. All of these come to bear on the possibility of NGOs managing development. The effectiveness of NGOs as actors in development and change depends on successful engagement with both internal and external management questions and also on the successful articulation between issues of internal and external management.
The Objective of this workshop is to demystify the law and empower participants with sound working knowledge of the various dos & don’t under law in order to stay legally and fiscally compliant and enhance credibility and accountability which is crucial for every NGO. It will also give participants a sense of key methods and sources of fund raising and more importantly how to build a ‘case for support’ and prepare effective grant proposals.
