Listen To The Story
SEND-GHANA has presented 3 Laptop computers to District Citizens Monitoring Committees (DCMCs) in the Upper East Region. The presentation was done by Director of Advocacy Programmes, Madam Clara Osei-Boateng.
The beneficiaries were DCMCs from Kasena-Nankana Municipal Assembly, Bongo District and Bawku Municipal Assembly.
The items are valued at GH¢6,000
Presenting the items to the DCMCs at a short ceremony during the Upper East Participatory Monitoring and Evaluation (PM&E) review meeting in Bolgatanga this week, Madam Clara Osei-Boateng said, “SEND-GHANA appreciates the partnership with the Focal Non Governmental Organisations (FNGOs) who happen to be the solid grass root implementers of our unique PM&E framework.”
The computers were intended to facilitate monitoring of government pro-poor policies, report writing, enhance their research and administrative work.
She said the gesture was to resource them in order to give off their best.
According to her, the development of every nation depended on the contribution of everybody no matter how small the contribution is and, therefore, there was the need for representatives of the beneficiary FNGOs to take advantage of the computers to build their capacity in development work.
The Chief Executive Officer of Navrongo Women Health and Development, Madam Patricia Kanluke said her office was in dire need of computers and, therefore, the presentation could not have been made at a better time.
She expressed gratitude to SEND-GHANA for the kind gesture and promised to use the computer to enhance her work in order to drive development to beneficiaries of SEND’s projects in her area.
She appealed to other Civil Society Organisations (CSOs) and Non-Governmental Organisations (NGOs) operating in the region to support FNGOs to do their work effectively.
