Co-ordination of Trinco NGO activities stressed

[TamilNet, Thursday, 07 November 2002, 07:46 GMT]
The Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam Wednesday stressed better co-ordination between the local non-governmental organisations in implementing rehabilitation and reconstruction projects in the Trincomalee district." From January next year we will supervise all projects carried out by local NGOs in the district with a view to rectify shortcomings, duplication of works and other discrepancies. However, we will not directly interfere with the administration of the NGOs," said Mr.S.Tilak, LTTE district political head at a discussion held Wednesday at Trincomalee Valluvar Kottam.

Representatives of all local NGOs in the Trincomalee district participated in the discussion. Mr. Rajesh, LTTE Trincomalee town political head also attended.

Mr.Tilak pointed out several shortcomings in the activities of the local NGO in the district. "These shortcomings could be rectified and urgent needs of the affected villages and the people could be fulfilled only through coordinated activities of the local NGOs, which are depended on the financial assistance provided by international NGOs," said Mr.Tilak.

"It is a pity to note that more than one NGO undertake rehabilitation projects in a single village at the same time another village which needs much assistance is completely ignored by these institutions. And also we could notice several NGOs implement same type of projects in one village. All these could be avoided if local NGOs co-ordinate their activities and formulate a common programme for the year, 2003," stressed Mr.Tilak.

Mr.Tilak revealed to the audience that some international nongovernmental agencies had withdrawn their financial assistance to two local NGOs because of unsound financial management.

He appealed to local NGOs to prepare their future project proposals to meet the challenges ahead and also adopting modern techniques.

Mr.Tilak requested the representatives of local NGOs to submit their proposals for the year 2003 before December 1, 2002 to assess them and to avoid duplication. He advised that the Consortium of NGOs in Trincomalee district should appoint a committee for this purpose.

Several representatives of NGOs in Trincomalee district welcomed the idea made by Mr.Tilak regarding the supervision of their activities and monitoring the progress of all rehabilitation and reconstruction works in future.
