Strengthening Participatory Organizations (Phase 2)

South and South-East Asia - Pakistan

- | Global Affairs Canada | CAD 486 000

The Strengthening Participatory Organizations (SPO) Project, Phase 2 (1995-2000), was an extension of an earlier Cowater implemented project which established jointly by the Governments of Canada and Pakistan to support development projects undertaken by NGOs in the social sectors. Over the course of both Phase 1 and 2 Cowater led and supported the project dedicated to providing capacity building assistance to rural CBOs. A strong emphasis of this capacity building project was to deepen the understanding of the concept of development, and strengthen programming and management skills for organizations and activities among CBOs. Cowater also continued to monitor the project and provided periodic technical assistance. The focus of the monitoring process was to assess the degree of progress in SPO’s management and fulfillment of its institutional mandate and the impact of proposed changes. Areas reviewed by the missions in the field included: organisational and management issues, MIS, Learning Information System, strategic planning, training, SPO’s CBO Strengthening Systems, financial management system, and community level activities
