Are you a founder of an NGO/CSO? Are you an NGO manager? Are you a BOD member of an NGO? Are you a passionate NGO employee who wants to make a difference? Are you an associate of an NGO?
If you answered YES to any of the above questions, then there is something in NGOsoft for you.
You probably have been in the NGO/CSO sector for several years now or the NGO you associate with may have been. Some NGOs have been in existence for more than 10 years and yet do not have appreciable finance and administrative operating standard to allow them benefit from institutional funds.
After overseeing a development organisation for up to ten years, the administrative, financial and M&E systems of your organization should reached a standard that you could describe as professional. Your support staff in finance, administration and M&E may not have formally complained but through the vine, you may have observed the challenges they go through to respond to some funding opportunities. This is due to the volume of work they are required to do to support your technical proposal. Your historical completed projects are not properly documented. Information on your performances in the past 10 years are not readily available. Just as banks require commercial entities to provide sales data to just support, institutional donors also require your NGO to provide some logical past financial and administrative performance data to back you application.
With your several years experience in the development sector, your INGO partners that have well ground systems expect you, a national organization, to have certain minimum financial, administrative and M&E systems as well. These systems are expensive to establish and maintain and they are the least funded cost-line-items in a project proposal.
NGOsoft services seek to make your development organisation operate with the standard of your INGO partners; you only need to accept the need for change and discipline yourself to follow the processes.
