Rehema C Batti


Partnership with local NGOs has become an important feature in the development sector. The NGOs bring the advantage of being indigenous organization with close links to communities they serve. Organizational development as a management practice applies relevant knowledge areas, information, technologies and other measures to improve the processes of organizational change.

Organizations have recognized the need to have strong organizational framework if they are to continue to make any continuous impact in the development sector, attract aid funding and recognition.
