The NGOs week 2021 is being organized against a backdrop of challenges posed by COVID-19, including loss of employment and livelihoods across the globe and reduced NGO funding. NGOs have played a critical role at the grass root level to complement Government efforts in the fight against the disease. They have been particularly useful in the war against COVID-19, as they provide selfless, voluntary and non-discriminatory service. The charities have the necessary infrastructure for supporting Government to deliver on its Big Four agenda projects.
The event will largely be hosted virtually in line with Covid-19 measures and protocols. The online link will be shared among our stakeholders.
The objectives of the NGOs Week 2021 are:
- To provide an opportunity for NGO sector players to showcase their activities, share experiences and network with other development stakeholders and the public.
- To improve relations between the Civil Society Organizations (CSO) sector and the Government.
- To provide an opportunity to discuss the role of CSOs in the implementation of the Big Four Government agenda.
- To provide a platform for sharing experiences on the fight against Covid-19 pandemic.
- To highlight the achievements of the NGOs as a sector worth funding and to demonstrate their contribution to national economy
