To ensure good governance of the organisation, members are co-opted annually to the Board of Directors. Quarterly Board meetings are held with the Managing Director to review and approve operational plans, programmes and expenditure by the organisation. Moreover the Board holds an annual general and strategy meeting.

The Board of Directors is divided into four sub-committees that are:

  • Monitoring and Programme Evaluation
  • Human Resources, Remuneration and Legal
  • Finances, Audit and Information Technology
  • Marketing, Fundraising and Communication

These sub-committees set the targets and performance indicators for each focus area and are required to report back to the Board of Directors at each quarterly meeting on progress and development against these targets.

As 80% of our staff members were first beneficiaries, they are driven by passion to deliver our programmes, focused on quality and sustainable impact. Our Monitoring and Evaluation meetings with partners occur quarterly in line with the performance indicators and outcomes agreed upon.

We track beneficiaries from 2 to 4 years which allows for accurate reporting on the sustainability of our programmes. Our systematic monitoring throughout the year with tools which are sharpened every year ensure accurate transparency on results. This process enables us to improve on how we deliver our programmes and to answer to the need with relevance.
