dc.description.abstractThe project was implemented basing on the request presented by the management of Family Life Action Trust, in which the main assignment was capacity building in organisational development for FLAT. The assignment based on assisting FLAT to develop interventions that would help the organization to identify short and long term interventions, and identifying appropriate ways to implement them. Short tern intervention was developed through an organizational self-assessment, which provided ground for the development of the capacity building action plan (CBAP) for 2004. Long term capacity building interventions were developed. This included helping the organization to develop the organization's core question, which will continue being reflected over a longer period of time. The analysis conducted revealed that FLAT'S members and volunteers have attained the level of education that is enough to make the organisation grow. They however, have less experience in NGO field. The gap between their skills and the work they are doing is big. The main motivation of the staff is experience and desire to contribute in addressing pressing needs of the community. Most of the volunteers' and staff expectations are therefore met.The organisation has experienced a big staff turn over, resulting from volunteers getting better jobs elsewhere. There is a good attempt to develop good management practices. In addressing this, the organisation is strengthening the Board of Trustees, which appears to be not effective. FLAT'S reputation in the community is very good. In the course of this project, FLAT was facilitated to enter into partnership with Concern Worldwide (Tanzania) to get more capacity building assistance. The organisation was also facilitated to implement fundraising initiatives, which resulted into winning two grants amounting Tsh. 10,000,000. FLAT was also facilitated to implement the CBAP, including the training and general mentoring support. (Author abstract)en
