Over the years and collectively, Non-Governmental Organisations have made an important contribution to humanity, and the work of NGO's, across the world, has never been an easy one.
High levels of unemployment, poverty and inequality will be the expected result of several country's weak state of economy and the consequences of the COVID-19 pandemic also have far-reaching implications for the role that NGOs play in the lives of millions.
Most NGOs are dependent on international funding, grant funding and individual donations for ongoing support, which in essence have decreased over the past few months with countries experiencing their own excessive lock-down periods.
Covid-19 is not an event with a defined beginning or end, and it is likely to remain an ongoing threat for the foreseeable future. This situation makes NGOs extremely vulnerable, and NGOs will require smart leadership and creative fundraising efforts to prevent the down-scaling of operations or staff losses.
Innovation is when you are able to create significant value, and now is the time to re-invent yourself.
WE-nnovation is a social enterprise helping NGO's to innovate.
The platform is designed to offer best practice methodologies, toolkits, and online facilitators, to not only foster a culture of innovative thinking, but to take you on an innovation journey over the course of 8-10 weeks to deliver 3-5 new feasible solutions that will address the challenges you are facing.
You can invent alone, but you can't innovate alone, which is an essential concept when it comes to reinventing any type of organisation from the inside-out. The best innovators are found within your NGO as they form the perpetual motion that keeps your NGO going.
Mahatma Gandhi declared that knowledge gained through experience is far superior and many times more useful than bookish knowledge. It is through this shared believe that you, as a NGO, possess the power to innovate yourselves to new heights.
