TANGO trains about 30 personnel on leadership & organizational management

The Association of Non-Governmental Organizations (TANGO) today, 22ND November convened a day-long capacity building for about 30 participants derived from TANGO and other organizations on leadership and organizational management.

The training was held at TANGO conference hall. The training was aimed to improve leadership and management for sustainability.

Speaking at the opening ceremony, Mrs. Ndey Sireng Bakurin, executive director of TANGO, she said that NGOs and Civil Society Organizations (CSOs) play an essential role in the society.

She noted that one of their strategic pillars of the program is capacity development, institutional building and resource development.

She added that many of the challenges experienced by NGOs, and CSOs stem from an inadequate understanding of collaborative and effective management mechanism in various areas that can be minimized with appropriate training.

Mrs. Bakurin said “we need to enhance the overall management and operational effectiveness of non-governmental and civil society organizations.

We are involved in shared leadership that cuts across the institutional and community fabric spectrum.”

She said NGOs and CSOs must be seen as competent and worthy partners in the sharing of leadership and responsibilities.

“Therefore, the recognition is the need for organizational competencies within the NGO/CSO community-a combination of knowledge, skills, experience and commitment that will strengthen our resolve to manage our financial and human resource and our outreach endeavors more effectively,” she said.

She noted that NGOs and CSs must demonstrate that their internal houses are also in order to be strong and effective partners.

Mrs. Bakurin stated that in line with the NDP and SDGS, TANGO’s, FIOHTGA’s and GG’s long term goal and strategy is focused on 3 strategic areas that are related to plans such as  capacity development, institution building and resource development, advocacy and influencing change agents (especially government and other service providers) to improve access to social and other related services and effective partnerships and collaborative alliance.

She advanced that “coming together is a beginning, keeping together is progress and working together is success,” as shed coated an Arabian proverb.

She went further to mention that the understanding of the nature of development makes new demands on NGOs and civil society, the need to understand and work within a complex systems, the need for flexibility, adaptability and innovation and a genuine commitment to multiple lines of management and accountability.

She said “organizational learning is widely recognized as essential for enabling us to respond to the new and often unpredictable challenges that face us in a complex working environment.”

She continued that “increasing organizational effectiveness is one of the most important reasons for NGOs and CSOs to invest in organizational learning as to increase the effectiveness of our organizations. This has meant conducting such capacity building for NGOs and CSOs.”

For his part, Lamin Nyangado, a freelance consultant who serves as resource person for the training urged participants to embrace TANGO as their organization and ensure that they do what they can, to strengthen the organization.

He said this will enable participants to give their best in terms of their obligations to ensure that TANGO moves further.

However, Mr. Nyangado took the participants through presentations on management and leadership in organizations.
