NGO Validation & Partnerships

The landscape of civil society in the country has been growing and demand for better quality and accountability in its functioning is also gaining momentum. At the same time, in the current legislative and policy regime, companies are increasingly being mandated to take social responsibilities as a means of delivering value. This requires that they work in partnership with credible & efficient civil society organizations. In the changing milieu, NGOs need enhanced credibility & visibility among donors, improved organizational & programmatic practices and sustained fund-raising possibilities. To address this need and taking forward our agenda to promote & enhance credibility and competence of the voluntary sector, we have strengthened our NGO Validation & Due Diligence support. In order to add clarity to the scope of support we wish to offer, our validation unit is now renamed as “NGO Validation & Partnerships”.

Our Objective
Our NGO Validation & Partnerships initiative aims to:

• Have an impartial and robust assessment of NGOs’ credentials, capacity & track record and;
• Strengthen their overall organizational and programmatic practices through capacity building interventions and building effective
  partnerships with corporates and other donors.
