Participation: The main ingredient for good development

Participation: The main ingredient for good development

An interesting discussion we had around participation as a key ingriedient for good development, was that while we all see the significance of it to ensure sustainability of the intervention, we all find it difficult. It is time and resource intensive and to add to the load, we are often bound by funders. Funders are very specific in the programmes they are wanting to support and are also demanding of result and impact in the very near future. It was acknowledged that funders have to answer to back donors as well and at times their hands are also tied. A suggested solution was to be firm in our strategies and operational plans as NGOs, to form strategic alliances and stand up to donors as a collective. There is power in numbers.
