A strong sector of Non-Governmental Organizations (NGOs) is a key element of a healthy and robust democracy.
To that end, the U.S. Embassy and United Nations collaborated on an NGO management workshop held December 9-10 for 45 managers of NGOs in Guyana representing six (6) different regions. The trainer, Dr. William Brown, is a professor at the Bush School of Government and Public Service at Texas A&M University.
“I’ve met some really talented people doing difficult work, despite all the challenges they face”, said Dr. Brown.
Areas covered in the workshop included mission & value propositions, stakeholder definition, understanding capacity, theory of change, resource relationships, crafting proposals and monitoring and evaluation.
