BEI Annual Conference 2015 – Baku
Nearly 50 participants coming from Azerbaijan, Georgia, India, Jordan, Kenya, Uganda and Spain met in Baku. Most of them (42) were delegates from the organizations we collaborate with.
Under the title “Management and Evaluation Skills for NGO’s” the first and second day of sessions were focused on developing results-based strategies and evaluating their impact and performance. The participants found the content very relevant and helpful and enjoyed the interactive sessions which were expertly delivered by the RITSAR team of trainers headed by Calvin Tiessen.
Conlusions and challenges.
One of biggest challenge that NGO’s face is fundrising. BEI is considering including this topic in the next conference.
BEI considers collaboration and synergy between our partner organization an important tool in improving the performance of each organization. That is why we are supporting the Teacher Training Programs that are being developed by Prof. Reeta Sonawat from SNDT in India and our three Kenyan partners Pole’Pole’ Watoto and YoungLife Africa and training conducted last year in Mumbai for the workers of SAHYOG by Katha from Delhi.
We urge all our partners to communicated with each other and find ways of collaborating to the mutual benefit of all.
