The silence that is killing Zimbabweans

I worry a great deal at the moment, as I watch the rest of humanity calling for Mugabe to step down, or be removed from power, and on the other hand I see the Southern African leaders calling for 'dialogue' and essentially supporting this despot. One has to wonder what hold Mugabe has over the powers that be in Africa? This cannot be simply about race ( a black African leader being supported by other black African leaders). One hears rumours flying about that Mugabe is linked to all the other Southern African leaders through their business dealings and interests.

Developmental Planning, Monitoring, Evaluation and Reporting

The Community Development Resource Centre (CDRA) is conducting a five-day course on Developmental Planning, Monitoring, Evaluation and Reporting from 2-6 March 2009 in Cape Town.

In this five-day course participants will explore and develop approaches and methodologies that enable planning, monitoring, evaluation and reporting processes to support rather than obstruct a developmental field practice – a PME approach beyond logframes. For directors, programme/project managers and field-team leaders as well as donors.

NGOs Denied Access to Areas in Zimbabwe

Humanitarian organisations are accusing the Zimbabwean government and war veterans of denying them access to some parts of the country to distribute food aid.

The National Association of Non-Governmental Organisations (NANGO) says the situation has made it difficult for organisations to provide humanitarian relief and to control hunger stalking the nation.

Caribbean NGOs Want Haiti Debt Cancelled

Leading Caribbean NGOs have joined their Haitian counterparts in calling for an unconditional write-off of Haitian foreign debt, which currently stands at approximately US$1.7 billion.

Chinese Ambassador Urges NGOs to Continue Good Work

The Chinese ambassador to Botswana has warned NGOs in the country to desist from acting like government organs.

Ding Xiaowen reminded NGOs that they are representatives of thousands of people from all walks of life. 

Ding says NGOs should act as a messenger between the government and the people to promote mutual understanding and social responsibility. He stressed that NGOs should be "a partner, a supporter, and a promoter" when in agreement with government on certain issues.
