Global Links Initiative {UK}-NGOs Meetings organised by GOODWILL- 2006-2007

Our centre has been actively involved in networking initiatives among NGOs/Civil society organisations in collaboration with Global Links Initiative {GLI} United Kingdom. The Global Links Initiative (www.glinet.org) is a UK based registered company and a charity, which is working in close partnership with our centre in organising networking and capacity building programmes for small and developing NGOs in the southern part of Tamilnadu, India. The centre organised two networking events for NGO administrators, project leaders, academics and social researchers in Madurai, Tamilnadu, South India.

The first GLI-NGOs MEET for NGO administrators, project leaders, academics and social researchers was held at Madurai in November 2006.About 120 participants representing 90 organisations/institutions were in attendance. Following the overwhelming response from NGOs and institutions in and around Madurai and its neighbouring districts, the second GLOBAL LINKS INITIATIVE (UK)-NGOs MEET was organised by the Goodwill social work centre, hosted by GLI on 18th April 2007 in Madurai. As many as 317 NGO Administrators, project leaders, academics and social researchers representing 257 organisations/institutions from 15 districts in the southern part of Tamilnadu participated in the GLI networking event.

Our experiences in organising the above networking and capacity building programmes for over 350 NGOs/Institutions with an attendance of 337 NGO administrators/management and development workers in partnership with the Global Links Initiative,UK have revealed the fact many NGOs which have had participated in the above networking and capacity building events are either a nascent, emerging or expanding stage lack knowledge on the need to build institutional capacity for their sustainability. Most of these Indian NGOs need to focus on building the capacity of their entire organisation and need to dedicate themselves to raise institutional capacity building to the same level of importance and attention as programme development and management. Realising the need to improve performance in governance, management practices, human resources, financial resources, service delivery, external relations and sustainability, the Goodwill social work centre proposes to organise a series of training and capacity building programmes for the GLI Networking members and NGO Administrators/ development professionals to equip them with a broader range of organisational skills to capacity building to be effective in their work.
