A. PROJECTS IN UNGO

 

1. INFORMATION RESOURCE CENTRE.

 

Started in 2004.It is a project run by UNGO in partnership with Uhusiano (a locally based Finnish NGO) and Kepa (Finnish Centre Cooperation).

      Training-Several trainings have organized aiming at building the capacity of member organizations. They include OD, computer literacy, Networking, Lobbying and Advocacy skills, Civic and Professional Ethics, skills in conducting a survey on public expenditure and Networking.

 

      Information dissemination-Our members are receiving various information relevant to their working environment. Funding and project opportunities, training opportunities, current issues on development, etc.

 

      Internet-UNGO members are encouraged to have e mail addresses. More than 70% of our members have e mail addresses and thus, communication is quickly and efficiently done through this technology.

 

      Meetings-

 

      Conference hall plays an important role in the life of UNGO, members as well as partners. On one side the hall is a meeting place for members and partners. Various meetings, workshops, seminars and trainings are organized and held in the hall; on the side, the conference hall is a source of income generation as it can be hired by members and non member organizations. The library, though small as it is, provides useful information to not only CSOs but also to al development partners.
