Resource Mobilization for Ngos in the Developing World: Current and Emerging Practices (Paperback)
The longevity and productivity of every NGO hinges on its capacity to effectively mobilize resources for its cause. Based on extensive research and years of professional practice, this book examines critically the issues and challenges of existing practices for fundraising by NGOs in the developing world and the pitfalls involved in towing the traditional model without taking into cognizance the changing trends in NGO funding. By using credible successful examples, the book tasks NGO leaderships on the exigency of adopting a new hybrid model of resource mobilization that innovatively blends the best of the old traditional methods with emerging practices as well as emphasizing the role of social enterprising as a means of generating resources. The book also highlights the importance of creating and maintaining productive relationships between donors and NGO leaderships. Finally, the book also shares insights on how NGOs can guard against stagnation and subsequent demise by avoiding organizational hazards common to NGOs in Africa, Asia and Latin America.
