BeschreibungWhy haven't development programs sponsored by local NGOs been moreeffective in Africa? In this careful study of NGOs in three African countries --Zimbabwe, Tanzania, and Senegal -- Sarah Michael exposes reasons why successful, well-run, and powerful development programs are infrequent in Africa. Michael'sargument focuses on issues of power. NGOs in Africa do not command the financialresources, employ the professional staff, or have the same access to donors thatNGOs in other parts of the world enjoy. Main topics covered in this probing bookinclude: What does a powerful NGO look like? How does power affect sustainabledevelopment? What circumstances prevent local NGOs in Africa from wielding power?How can African NGOs remedy their absence of power? What relationship with donorsand international NGOs should be cultivated? This book will interest readersconcerned with issues pertaining to the organization, mission, and implementation ofdevelopment NGOs in Africa and beyond.
