NGO of choice: MalariaNoMora.Org (MNM)
The African continent is facing many challenges that prevent its economical prosperity for so long, ranging from poverty that has taken its role in delaying the progress, to mal nutrition and diseases “…Third world nations still share a number of common characteristic, all of them suffer from some aspects of political, economic, or social underdevelopment” (Handelman, 2011, p2).
Plasmodium parasite is the disease that causes Malaria which is primarily transmitted and caused by bites from female anopheles mosquito. It is one of the top three killer diseases in Africa “The parasites are spread to people through the bites of infected Anopheles mosquitoes, called "malaria vectors", which bite mainly between dusk and dawn” (WHO.int). Malaria No More is an NGO that demonstrated it’s committed to fight Malaria disease in Africa and providing basic human needs to tackle the infestation of the disease that spread in most Africa’s countries. MNM (Malaria No More) is also working relentlessly to provide vaccination to Africans suffering from the disease on one hand, and furnishing Africans with Mosquito sleeping nets on the other hand as a preventive approach to enable them sleep without getting exposed to mosquito bites at night. MNM efforts is limited to their funding constrains; private donations are the primary sources of funding that MNM relies on. Raising more awareness is one way the organization depends on in their efforts to educate the public about the severity of the disease, getting them engaged is an objective that they strive to reach by committing to the cause in the form of donations and spreading the word.

Poverty and Ngo

..., appalling corruption as a system and failure of democracy and state accountability to citizen. A major concern to the country and masses is the problem of persistent poverty which is a denial of fundamental human right and a breach of social nationality. The purpose of this research is to investigate the complex dimension of poverty and the role of NGOs in reducing poverty in Nigeria, with a particular focus on Egor local government area of Edo state. The Lift above Poverty Organisation, an NGO founded in Nigeria will be used as a case study. This research will also explore the strategies employed by the Lift Above Poverty Organisation (LAPO) in reducing poverty in Edo state and how this has helped to improve the standard of living of the people. This research is important because it intends to explore the activities of LAPO in Edo State and to proffer solutions to the issues relating to poverty in the State. 1.2 Statement of problem Poverty is a multi-dimensional phenomenon which includes inadequate access to water, lack of shelter, and basic sanitation and other fundamental life sustaining resources (Ravenhill, 2011). Poverty remains a central problem facing the World today particularly in developing countries where a vast majority of the population live below the poverty line.

Ngo Assessment: Greenpeace

...NGO Assessment on Greenpeace In 1969, the U.S. announced that they were going to test a 1.2-megaton nuclear bomb on the Aleutian Island of Amchitka, Vancouver. This disturbed the Canadians because it might cause earthquakes and tidal waves, which could sweep from one end of the Pacific to the other. They tried to stop the U.S. bomb test. All sort of concerned citizens started to meet until the Don’t Make a Wave Committee was created. Don't Make a Wave was an informal committee, endorsed by the Sierra Club, the United Church of Canada, the B.C. Federation of Labour, the Canadian Voice of Women, and other peace and ecology organizations. They created uproar, making noise about the tidal wave image. The committee met in the basement of the Vancouver Unitarian Church. The meetings were exhausting and seemed to go nowhere. One day, while having a cup of coffee, wife of Jim Bohlen, Marie, suggested that they sail a boat up there and confront the bomb. Jim liked the idea and told the committee about it. The Don’t Make a Wave ad hoc group adopted the plan and opts for the name of the boat. A quiet 23-year-old Canadian carpenter, union organizer, and ecologist, Bill Darnell, who rarely spoke at the meetings, added sheepishly "Make it a green peace." The group sailed but was detained before they reached the testing area. With this act, the group created a big fuss that encouraged U.S. Demonstrations every major Canadian city. They adopted the Green Peace name in 1971 because it has...

Shivji acknowledges that he is working ‘on a canvas of broad strokes’, but the issues he identifies are important for political and social practices across sites, scales and forms. The argument opens with a presentation of Africa’s colonial history and the coercive processes of extraction, domination and underdevelopment which continue into the present. He then outlines three failures of the liberation project in Africa: the national territorial state versus pan-Africanism; a developmental versus a democratic state; and nationalism versus imperialism. This is the context for his consideration of NGOs as non-state actors caught up in an imperial project...

...How to Manage Cash Account and Transactions in NGOs – NGO Financial Management Policy Cash payments need to be documented firmly by NGOs in their financial management policy. Since small sums of cash payments are common on a day-to-day basis, a certain procedure needs to be developed and mentioned in the policy manual. An example is given below: “3. Cash Handling 3.1 Cash Account and Transactions Cash transactions are to be resorted only for petty expenses and when /where banking facilities are not available. As per Income Tax Rules, no claim exceeding $______ should be settled through cash payments. These should invariably be by account payee checks only. As a matter of procedure and control, the attempt should be to minimize the number of cash transactions. 3.2 Daily Cash Balance The denomination of the closing balance of the cash should be entered below this and signed by the Accountant. This register has to be maintained from the beginning of the financial year. A fresh register has to be started at the beginning of every financial year.

Based on AccountAble 53: Conflict of Interest Hindi phrase, meaning ‘The Last Option’ This problem does not arise if the position is held ex-officio 225 Implications Conflict of interest is not bad in itself. In today’s society when people have multiple responsibilities, this is natural. Things like networking and working together on issues also increase chances of a person occupying two positions. However, if conflict of interest is not handled properly, it can lead to loss of money, image or reputation. In some cases, it may also result in civil or criminal proceedings. Managing Conflict of Interest In the normal course of work, all decisions are properly scrutinised. Also most such decisions help the organisation move forward at an optimum cost. Later, the implementation of the decision is also monitored quite carefully. However, this process may be short-circuited in some situations. This is more likely when a conflict of interest exists. The person who is interested in the transaction may influence the decision-making or monitoring. It is not necessary that this will...

Accounting for Ngo in Bangladesh

...Chapter 1: Introduction 1.1 Prelude:                   As globalization and international trade impact societies, non-government organizations have become increasingly influential in world affairs. Now, there are about twelve thousand NGOs in all over the world operating in most countries. These organizations are not directly affiliated with any national government, but often have a significant Impact on the social, economy and political activity of the country or region involved. So, we can say that NGOs have become major players in the field of international and national development. Bangladesh has largely failed to assist the poor or reduce poverty because of limited resources and planning, while NGOs have grown dramatically, but it ostensibly fails to fill this gap. There are more and bigger NGOs here than in any other country of equivalent size. Here, NGOs have mainly functioned to service the needs of the landless, usually assisted by foreign donor funding as a counterpoint to the state's efforts. Besides all these, in the field of NGO, Financial Reporting process and application of accounting is disgraceful. NGOs in Bangladesh have increasingly become subject to question and criticism from the government, political parties, intellectuals and the public in genus for misuse of funds, gender discrimination, and nepotism. Absence of proper guidelines in preparing financial statements and reports makes it more complex. The government of Bangladesh doesn’t...

... days. We visited this NGO on 11/02/2016, Thursday. After reaching the site we first pooled in some money, collected and counted it. Then we decided to buy stationary for the kids from nearby shops. While four of our members left to buy the same, the others stayed back and divided themselves into a group of 3 each and got into different classes. After entering classes we made a casual conversation to these kids. The first thing we did was to make sure that they felt comfortable around us. We then started with involving those kids in various games. We started with games first so that the kids could come out of their shells and stop being hesitant around us. Once the kids started gelling well with us we thought of teaching Traffic Rules. We also taught them basic general knowledge and remembered to test them after giving lessons. We also divided them in groups for various activities and tested their workmanship. Surprisingly these kids had high moral values and could very well work together. They were taught by their teachers to respect their elders. As soon as we entered classes, all kids stood up and greeted us. They were very polite in their speech. The faculty members were also very supportive. They helped us distribute the stationary among kids. We also took kids to the ground and made them play games outside. Kids thoroughly seemed to enjoy their time with us. We also got clicked with them and the staff. Their smiling faces encouraged us too, to do something......

Ngo Ethics and Leadership

...Being a leader at NGO doesn’t come without a challenge, as a matter of fact; the performance of the NGO is reflected almost entirely by the performance of its leader. Such leaders need to have specific characteristics and features. So without any doubt, being the leader of a certain NGO should go beyond the management of tasks and getting results, to inspire and make a change on his team thus the NGO as a whole. This type of leaders is called transformational leaders because they “Enable ordinary people to achieve extraordinary results” (Peters & Waterman, 1982; Bass, 1985). Accordingly such leader engages others through his care and modesty and doesn’t simply recite orders. Another skill NGO leaders ought to have is the ability to know which style to adopt depending on their pinpointing skills and decision to pick the most suitable; factors such as the environment must be assimilated in one’s decision. A successful NGO leader should balance the two extremes of being a tough figure and a very participative one as managers, not only that, but also learns how to complement those two and make them compatible. Therefore, he/she should be at ease with showing their cooperative style as well as their leading role within the organization. Additionally to leadership styles and attitudes, comes emotional intelligence: in order to be effective at an NGO, the leader must have high levels of emotional intelligence because this is what determines their performance, it is how well...
