Language for Employment and Vocational Training Program to Integrate Refugees Faster into the Labour Market

Today the world finds itself in front of the worst refugee crisis since the Second World War. Culminating with Syria conflict, over 60 million people have been displaced globally.

Countries accepting refugees are struggling to reconcile humanitarian and economic aspects of the ongoing crisis. Supporting repatriation or integration are two possible solutions for mitigating refugee and immigrant experience. Even though supporting sustainable repatriation would be the best solution, that option is not feasible for many refugees, in particular those coming from countries where devastating conflicts are still going on.

Integration of the refugees into local communities is a long process. Statistics show that it takes 5 to 6 years to integrate 50% of migrants into the labour market and up to 15 years to get 70% them employed.

Research carried out by the University of Sussex has identified that some of the most important obstacles for integration occurs due to insufficient knowledge of local language and a lack of the access to employment and vocational training for the sectors in demand for the foreign labour force.

Maximpact brings together the needs of local labour markets and refugee integration by implementing innovative, sector-specific language and vocational training for employment of refugees and migrants.

With its refugee-migrant education and employment program Maximpact offers the possibility to corporations, governments, NGOs and other private and public organisations that to work together towards helping refugees and migrants to rebuild and change people’s lives for the better.

How do NGOs change people’s lives? Read Joyce Mary’s heartening story

 

Hear other people’s stories…

Maximpact presents War on Want – an NGO celebrating this year its 56th anniversary of working with poor communities in Africa.

By Eithne McNulty Overseas, Officer for War On Want Northern Ireland

Northern Ireland, December 27, 2017 (WOWNI) War On Want Northern Ireland (WOWNI) is a small, independent International Non-Governmental Organization (INGO) based in Belfast Northern Ireland. WOWNI implements programmes in Uganda and Malawi focusing on supporting local groups of farmers to reduce poverty and promote equitable and sustainable development through building their capacity to produce more food to feed their  families and have a surplus to take to market. Fostering entrepreneurship and building income generation are important aspect of how the organization works and special care is taken to target the most vulnerable of the poor such as orphans, women, elderly, child headed households and  people living with HIV/Aids. Care for the environment is central to WOWNI’s work ethic as is gender equality.

Joyce Mary’s story is a heartening one. It shows how a little help can go a long way when there are people as enterprising and entrepreneurial as she. And the vast majority of people in poor communities in Africa have this amazing ability to be business people in their own right. Joyce Mary talks about her “business dream coming through” with the help she got from WOWNI. She now has her chicken rearing farm! She talks too about the training she received on business development and agricultural technologies. WOWNI hears this said all the time.

Training is such a key element of the success of the projects (visit Maximpact Advisory for training services).

Joyce Mary references borrowing from her local Village Savings and Loans Scheme (VSLA) – a kind of credit union set up and managed by local people. VSLAs are a lifeline to people and form part of every intervention WOWNI designs with local people. VSLAs provide a safe savings scheme locally, they provide borrowing facilities for business set up and importantly, they become a lifeline when a ‘rainy day’ hits. Ironically, a ‘rainy day’ in the East African context more typically means drought!. This leads to failed crops as does other disasters such as floods and pest invasion like the army worms which are sweeping Sub Saharan Africa at the moment and destroying poor peoples’ livelihoods. So, the challenges are many. Fortunately, the resilience and talent Joyce Mary exudes, as do so many other of the poor, sees communities through the tough times. Ironically too, when you visit these communities what you meet is not despondency and desolation – not at all. It is always song, dance, ceremony and celebration. Always a smile and a welcome.

WOWNI has a deep belief in the capabilities and capacity of local communities in the developing world. They  know best how to respond to the needs and challenges they face; how to lift themselves out of the poverty that surrounds them. Their challenges and obstacles are manifold;  the structural nature of poverty; did you know that the developed/rich world takes more in  taxes from the developing world than it gives to it in aid?. Other major challenges include climate change, lack of resources, education, jobs, land, gender inequality. Because local people and their communities are best placed to plan and implement development projects, WOWNI  operates the ‘partnership approach’, meaning it identifies locally based Non-Governmental Organizations (NGOs) and Community Based Organizations (CBOs) and work through them. They become the delivery mechanism for development projects.  They invariably know what’s needed by way of planning, budgeting,  training, raw materials, tracking, monitoring and much more. They get results. WOWNI is simply the conduit between its Northern Irish  donors and its governmental donors, who generously give to the organization, and the farmers groups who, when they receive that assistance, work innovatively, imaginatively, diligently and with unbelievable resourcefulness and resoluteness.

How Capacity Building Training Increases The Effectiveness And Sustainability Of NGOs

The advantages of capacity building training run far deeper than you might initially think. Instigating both general and targeted training can change the whole feel of an organization to those working or volunteering for it. It shows a commitment on the NGO’s part not just to the mission at hand, but to the individuals on the front line. This willingness to offer more to your personnel makes the whole feel of the NGO more professional and dynamic. It keeps you at the cutting edge, and breeds loyalty amongst those you rely on.

Here we’ll take a look at some of the well-documented advantages, as well as a few lesser-known ones that are more specific to NGOs.

General Advantages To Capacity Building Training

There’s a long list of well-known advantages to continued training. Here are just a few of them:

  • Organizational skill building: Training allows organizations to foster in-house skills. Qualified team is the most valuable asset an organization can have. Developing in-house skills builds operational efficiency and successful achievement of long-term goals. 
  • Change Management: This is paramount for all organizations, especially those dealing with expansion of organizations or perhaps changes to their current policies.
  • Communication: An understanding of different perspectives and views can help us to communicate more effectively between team members, partners, networks, donors, communities and other stakeholders.
  • Ethical responsibility: NGOs are often working towards a bigger goal in communities or areas with susceptible individuals. Understanding the importance of the responsibility to act ethically is essential for front line personnel.
  • Quality improvement: Maintaining or exceeding the expected standards requires an understanding of the quality concepts.

In addition to these there are many other areas, including raising awareness about their mission. These all play a key role in a modern and productive work environment.

Lets be specific

This is where the benefits can be quantified in a much more specific way. By creating a training program specific to the skillset required for the effectiveness of your NGO you allow us to target key areas of your organization where gains can be made. We provide this service for different industries, such as agriculture, but lets look at our flexible program aimed at Agriculture, WASH (Water, Sanitation and Hygiene) and Waste Management

Agriculture Training-of-Trainer (ToT) program provides the tools to organizations to train youth, women and communities in agriculture sector. This ToT program also covers the methods by which small holders can combine their resources into effective cooperative interest groups and form linkages with NGOs and funding partners. By informing and providing a framework for success lenders, NGOs, farmers groups and individual growers can form a united value chain, linking the economic development of the region to the demands of national and global markets. With insight into regional challenges and an appropriate skillset to revitalize agriculture, Maximpact training program can help to improve agribusiness and allow opportunities for small growers to participate fully in local and global markets.

WASH related problems often involve personnel being on the ground in unstable regions. To operate to maximum efficiency an understanding political, environmental and social factors all need to be taken into account. These aspects purely deal with improving areas related to operational efficiency, but these aren’t the only challenges faced.

Waste Management ToT program is designed for organizations such as NGOs, civil society organizations and businesses to carry out this program. Professionals coming from the NGO sector require both integrated knowledge on waste management and the capacity to transfer that knowledge further to the target groups identified by their programs.

The NGO sector is supposed to act as the agent of change for impactful and sustainable project implementation in this sector. For that reason, we at Maximpact believe that by empowering local non-profit organizations with skills, knowledge, technological solutions and business opportunities our expert trainers will create new trainers capable of training others.

Often a large part of projects is not just to give people the resources they require, but to also communicate the most up to date information in a way that will be assimilated by the community and help them accomplish and maintain the needed changes.  These programs can be specifically tailored to strengthen your NGO’s ability to provide technical and operational solutions in the Agriculture, WASH and Waste Management sectors.

Many areas can be incorporated or omitted as needed by individual NGOs. It can include relevant health and social issues, including disease transmission, management and prevention. Elevating the skills of the sector to deliver on the promises made by individual programs. Incorporating integrated planning to allow for smoother progress from management to the front line.

Integrated knowledge

This approach allows you to strengthen exactly where you need to strengthen. It can take your NGO from being the equivalent of your average keep for enthusiast that puts in all the effort and enjoys slow results, to becoming a professional athlete who understands all the finer aspects of training and works on weaknesses to eliminate them as much as possible.

How can your NGO organize ToT training?

NGO’s by their very nature are not concerned with the accumulation of wealth. Whether you are classed as charitable, community based, national or international, the outlook and goals are usually far more long term.

Financing these goals usually takes a lot of effort and commitment from dedicated people within the NGO whose passion drives the project forward. This leaves little funding for anything other than the absolute essentials needed to fund the NGO itself, and while many have operating budgets of 100’s of millions, many also rely purely on volunteers.

This can create a conflict between the general ethos of an NGO, and their potential to utilize training to become more competent and efficient, ultimately helping them to increase sustainability and growth. Fortunately there are many options open to an NGO that wishes to broaden the skillset of their staff and volunteers in relevant and practical ways.

Possible ways to fund training

The options available to your NGO will in part depend on the nature of the organization. No matter what source of income you rely on, private donors, public or government grants, membership fees, or just simply the goodwill of others, we have purposely selected ways to raise funds or reduce costs that will work for the majority. 

Short term:

Proposal: Put together a small proposal to submit to donors or government to raise sponsorship. The benefits of training are well documented, and a very strong case can be made that’s equally as beneficial to your donors or supporters.

Reduce the cost: When you are organizing training why not reach out to other NGO’s that would also benefit from the training. This allows you to split the cost between the organizations, and makes the training even better value for money.

Network: Larger NGO’s will usually have a primary supporter, or a board full or people that aren’t being fully utilized. Don’t be afraid to ask about potential companies or sponsors they may be aware of.

Long term:

Incorporate Training: In the longer term it is advisable to incorporate training into the grants you seek for projects. The training will be relevant to the project, and help the effectiveness of the NGO in achieving its goals. Funding training this way can also help with keeping the overhead percentage to a minimum.

These are just a few general suggestions. There may be other ways that are more specific to just your NGO. For example, if you have membership fees you could ask your members to contribute an extra (possibly optional) nominal amount as part of the fee to fund the training. Nobody knows your NGO as well as you so get creative. NGO’s who are funded by corporations may be able to leverage plain old-fashioned good will. Companies like a return on the money they invest, even if that return isn’t financial. Showing the many ways the training will benefit the NGO, and ultimately the beneficiaries of the NGO’s work can create a feel good factor for donors.

Why is it worth all the effort?

The advantages of training are well documented, but many think that because they already have experience and everything is working, it is an unnecessary expense. Every industry is continually progressing, and if you’re standing still you’re effectively going backwards.

At Maximpact we specifically tailor the training to the specific needs of the organization. This makes a persons level of experience far less relevant, as the training will be customized for their specific needs. If this isn’t incentive enough then here’s just a few of the other benefits of continued training.

  • Increased morale among employees and volunteers
  • Increased motivation
  • Higher capacity for adoption of new methods and technologies
  • Reduced level of personnel turnover
  • A higher level of efficiency in their role

Ability to provide training as a service by the NGOs creates an extra revenue stream and decreasing their dependency on donor funding.

The primary goal of all of this is to strengthen the potential of your NGO to achieve its goals. Whether the purpose of your NGO is to help your local community or change the world, the environment you work within is fluid and ever evolving, so make sure your NGO stays as relevant and capable as it possibly can by evolving along with the world around it. The best way to ensure this is regular and tailored training specific to your employees and your goals. Lets make our efforts as sustainable as the world we are working towards building.

NGOs Grow With Maximpact’s Training-of-Trainers

Capacity building and NGO’s external benefits (accountability to donors and local communities)

For many years now, NGO sector has been acting as an agent of change empowering and fostering local communities towards sustainable socio-economic development.

NGO programs that focus on peace building, democratic governance, human rights as well as fighting poverty and inequality are implemented around the world.

Yet, no matter how many successful projects have been created, in the final phase of implementation the last challenge remains – ensuring project sustainability.

To increase the chances that activities and policies fostered by NGOs will be integrated and utilized within targeted community groups upon project completion, it is helpful to have people within the project target group who know how to maintain new practices and policies once the NGO staff has completed their mission.

One of the most effective ways to carry out this goal is capacity building.

Capacity building has become one of the most important measures for ensuring project sustainability and is requested by the donor community.

Building the capacity of NGOs and projects to change negative perceptions, inefficient practices, and harmful behavior of governments, decision makers and policy makers is an emerging requirement usually implemented by reputable, successful NGOs.

Ensuring that NGOs have the capacity to undertake this important outreach means training NGO staffers, who will then be able to effectively communicate with community members and train them to carry out the core necessary tasks to ensure project sustainability and positive impact.

NGOs can build upon the success of their core programs by sharing their skills with others in the community, whether that community is a village, town, state, country or the entire world.

But the sharing of skills is a skill in itself. It requires training to sharpen effective communications strategies, including active listening, outreach that will be accepted by the community, assessment and follow up.

Maximpact provides need-based and sector-specific tailored training to strengthen the capacity of NGOs, projects and programs worldwide. Organizations can carry out training in any area they need, such as fundraising, or select Agriculture, WASH and Waste Management Training-of-Trainers.

The Internal Benefits of Capacity Building for an NGO

Capacity building is required to demonstrate an NGO’s accountability for and sustainability of project results to donors and local communities. It also is essential in growing the internal abilities of an NGO to perform its mission in the most efficient and effective way.

In order to adapt to the fast-changing environment of development and humanitarian assistance, many NGOs require new skills of their staff members. Internal communication and coordination of complex programs can pose challenges to staffers. Strengthening their ability to collaborate with partners becomes even more important.

Through its Training-of-Trainers programs designed for NGOs, Maximpact offers solutions to these and other common challenges faced by the NGO community.

NGOs benefit through such programs. By becoming trainers, NGO leaders can extend their services, enhancing the reputation of their organization and generating new revenue streams.

While building their own skills as trainers, NGO leaders are empowered to motivate community members to become trainers themselves, expanding the knowledge of the whole community.

ToT in WASH, Waste Management and Agriculture / TRIPLE BENEFIT

Maximpact offers customized training programs designed to serve NGOs working in the field of AgricultureWASH and Waste .

These programs offer triple benefits. They train participants in: technical, operational and preparation skills.

The Maximpact Training-of-Trainers program will graduate a competent and enthusiastic staff of trainers equipped with the skills and resources to transform local areas through sustainable agricultural methods tailored to local conditions and cultures.

The Maximpact Training-of-Trainers program for WASH consists of 11 main modules covering water pollution, water scarcity and climate change; and the practical possibilities for sustainable financing.

The Waste Management Training-of-Trainers program will introduce recent technology and most advanced techniques in waste management.

All these programs are expected to raise the skills of the NGO sector to create and deliver their own WASH, Agriculture and Waste capacity building programs.

Based on the specific needs of an NGO, the Maximpact Training-of-Trainers programs offer the flexibility to select one or more of the presented modules and/or request training in any additional sector-related topics.

Maximpact will adapt the program to the local context where trainings take place, as well as to the nature and knowledge level of training participants.

All Maximpact programs are in line with the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals, incorporating the climate change and gender aspects of these ambitious goals.

To ensure sustainability, Maximpact has created a Post-Training Mentorship Program to further support the training participants in applying their training to their day-to-day work.

Participants of Maximpact capacity building training programs enhance the socio-environmental impact and sustainability of their NGO projects. Their communities experience upward economic mobility as the graduates, in turn, teach local enterprises the skills they need to succeed.

Implementation modalities and service conditions

Maximpact trainers can provide either virtual or in-house training, or both.

The training service fee will depend on:

  • the number of topics or modules selected
  • the mode of training delivery – in-house or virtual
  • the number of days during which the training will take place
  • the choice of national or international expert to conduct the training

To get started, the NGO fills in the pre-training assessment form, click for link: Maximpact Training Form

Then, Maximpact finds the right expert and submits a service proposal to that expert for review and approval.

What Challenges do NGO’s face and what are the solutions?

 

57622130 - ngo contribution corporate foundation nonprofit concept

MAXIMPACT BLOG March 20, 2017 Maximpact.com

Non-governmental organizations (NGOs) refer to highly diverse groups of enterprises engaged in a wide spectrum of non-profit activities. The focus of NGOs can range from humanitarian and rural development to assisting local startups and businesses. There are roughly 3.7 million NGOs worldwide with an estimated 2 million of them in India.

The first NGO dates back to 1945 when the United Nations was created. The UN made it possible for certain non-governmental organizations to be given permission to have observer status at its assemblies and some of its meetings.

So, What is the Goal or Objective of NGOs?

The goal of NGOs can vary widely depending upon the specific focus, objective and mission of the organization. From improving human rights in a geographic area to providing education about environmental issues to supporting the arts, the goal or objective of an NGO can cover just about any topic related to improving a region, country or the state of the world in some way.

What all NGOs share is the desire to further their vision and mission, whatever it might be. Individuals and groups who form NGOs tend to have a passion for their beliefs. They are usually coming from a place of altruism and care for the human race and for the future of our world. To that end, the goal of NGOs is to improve the human experience by lending their efforts to a specific and specialized cause.

What Are the Main Challenges NGOs Face Today?

The main challenges to the missions of most NGOs are as follows:

Lack of Funds

Many NGOs find it difficult to garner sufficient and continuous funding for their work. Gaining access to appropriate donors is a major component of this challenge. They may have limited resource mobilization skills locally, so instead they wait for international donors to approach them. Current donors may shift priorities and withdraw funding. The NGO might suffer from a general lack of project, organizational and financial sustainability.

Absence of Strategic Planning

Many NGOs suffer from the lack of a cohesive, strategic plan that would facilitate success in their activities and mission. This renders them unable to effectively raise and capitalize on financial support.

Poor Governance and Networking

A lack of effective governance is all too common in NGOs. Many have a deficit of understanding as to why they must have a Board and how to set one up. A founder may be too focused on running the NGO for their own purposes; however, governance is foundational to transparency.

Poor or disorganized networking is another major challenge, as it can cause duplicated efforts, time inefficiencies, conflicting strategies and an inability to learn from experience. The more NGOs communicate with one another, with International Non-Governmental Organizations (INGOs) and with the community at large, the more effective all of them can be. However, many NGOs perceive INGOs as hindering or even threatening to their goals and missions.

Many NGOs do not maximize the use of current technologies that could facilitate better communication and networking. More effective use of technology can assist NGOs in staying abreast of important regional, national and global concerns.

Limited Capacity

NGOs often lack the technical and organizational capacity to implement and fulfill their mission, and few are willing or able to invest in training for capacity building. Weak capacity affects fundraising ability, governance, leadership and technical areas.

Development Approaches

Many NGOs favor a “hardware” approach to development through building infrastructure and providing services instead of empowering people and institutions locally. Overall, their development approaches are not as flexible, sustainable and relevant to the community as they could be.

What are the solutions to those challenges?

Grant Funding

In order to receive grant funding, an NGO must do the following:

1. Locate Opportunities. Find an appropriate grant and funder for their focus and mission.

2. Solid Concept Note / First Round Application. NGOs must answer all criteria and provide all of the information the donor/funder requires. Not following the guidelines will result in immediate disqualification.

3. Proposal. Once an NGO passes the first application state, a proposal will be requested. The proposal must be well-written and error-free. Most importantly, it must contain all of the necessary elements to show the donor that the NGO has a strategy and high-quality team members.

Challenges such as poor governance, a lack of strategic planning, and poor networking can all be addressed through:

Capacity Building

Capacity building and training can help to provide crucial new skills. NGOs can then more readily train staff and cultivate the necessary skills within the organization to address challenges going forward.

On-Demand Advice From Experts

The ability to reach out for needed advice and guidance whenever required during a project or to optimize NGO operations is extremely valuable. Access to qualified experts will inspire confidence in donors and contribute to the project’s success. NGOs will naturally become more efficient, streamlined and effective.

Information, Communication and Technology

All NGOs should be using a minimum of Internet, email, a basic website and relevant social medial platforms.

Income Generation

NGOs with assets can use any surplus to help generate income. Renting out buildings, offering training, providing consultancy, creating and selling products and trading on your name are just a few examples.

If your NGO is facing any of the challenges described above, Maximpact can help. We offer training and capacity building to strengthen your organization and assist you in meeting your goals.

What Is Capacity Building … and How Does It Improve Overall Business Performance?

44923115 - trading graph on the cityscape at night and world map background,business financial concept

Capacity building refers to the activities that help an organization accomplish its mission and maintain itself in a fast-changing business environment. The individual activities vary widely and can include  institutional strengthening, the development of mission-focused communications, recruiting new talent, upgrading skills of existing staff, keeping sound financial records, adopting efficient technologies or creating key partnerships.

From private to nonprofit and government departments, capacity building has proven itself to be an important part of business implementation.

  • It starts at the initial phase of a project or business, where the focus is on creation.
  • Later, to improve mid- or long-term success, capacity building focuses on efficiency and effectiveness.

At its best, capacity building allows you to drive your mission forward, meet your goals and have a real impact on the community you serve.
