Good Governance

FRESH, LLC felt that local NGOs needed to incorporate the element of good governance to strengthen their organization. For example, recently, a NGO Board of Directors fired the Executive Director from its organization. However, because the Board and Executive Director had several fundamental differences, the real reason for the dismissal was unclear. The local newspaper, to demonstrate this lack of clarity, portrayed the Board as a group who has parties at meetings and dictates to the Executive Director.

To help alleviate situations like these from happening, FRESH, LLC has taken a survey with various local NGOs in Kenya about the relationship between the Executive Director and the Board of Directors. Our findings will be established on our site by October 1, 2006. We will use our findings to design a workshop that will addresses the fundamental misunderstandings and the roles and responsibilities of both groups.

In September 2006, FRESH concluded a survey of Kenyan NGOs and their understanding of the roles and responsibilities of the Board of Directors.
