KULIMA and its "DREAM" of Provincial Decentralization

(11 delegations = 11 autonomous NGOs)

 

In view of a Confederation of KULIMAS in Mozambique - CKMoz

 

Dear Provincial Delegates,

Suddenly, even after having admired the Eclipse of the Moon, which suddenly changed from its white to red splendor, I was surprised to reflect on a plan that should have already been realized, like normal growth of our Institution, but which is actually still on the high seas!

 

WHICH?

 The Plan of Decentralization of our Organization, with the constitution of "Provincial Kulima’s", capable of self-government, of self-subsidizing, of becoming real provincial NGOs, with effective and permanent members, having assumed all the cultural, economic and social characteristics of Province, in permanent liaison with the National SEDE, forming a coalition of NGOs KULIMA.

 

This Plan really exists and, still in the phase of its implementation, it obeyed and obeyed the different stages that each Delegation realized and is realizing.

 

HOW TO REALIZE IT:

Revision and updating of all documentation of the Delegation:

a)      Official documents, history of its constitution,

b)      Own headquarters.

c)      Bank account

d)      Newsletter.

e)      Establishment of a complete and efficient operational

f)       Establishment and definition of the effective members and election of the members of the internal organs of the delegation.

g)      Constitution of a Social Fund that sustains the financial life of the Delegation.

h)      The existence of activities that generate income.

i)       Establishment of the Service Center, consisting of permanent staff and trainees for public relations, proposal writing, fundraising, and Advocacy

j)       Establishment of strong partnerships with other similar organizations.

k)      Strong, periodic and legal liaison with KULIMA's national headquarters.

Goal reached, needing to maintain this position and improve it.

 

Target not yet reached. Plan the steps to take to achieve

 

We're halfway through the process. Short-term plan of steps to take to achieve.

 

Precarious situation. Medium-term plan of the steps to be taken to achieve.

 

Red alert. How to advance and limit this lack.

 

From the table under analysis, it is verified that we have much work to do, many steps to take and I feel that each Delegation by the Leadership that it has is able to advance. For this purpose, a plan should be prepared in addition to each Delegation to strengthen the current state and to complete the vacancies established and assumed as real.

We have half a way open and traveled and in view of the holding of the November 2019 General Assembly, have we achieved much progress?

 

 

 

 

In conclusion,

 

Starting from a clear and tangible observation that most of the people who work permanently in KULIMA feel they are WORKERS AND NOT MEMBERS of the Institution, favoring the disinterest of many people for the growth of the same Institution, deriving a situation in which all responsibility falls on very few people of the Institution and all the rest feel alienated from compromising, we must reverse the route.

We must seriously change the route, not imitate the International NGOs and even less the representations of the International Organizations, who take staff on time and nothing less, when Headquarters decides to close, for them nothing happens and everything disappears! When they win another "social" program, they return with all their strength, with all their sympathy, and resume activities and "humanitarian" presence,

We are not so! And we do not want to be like them! We are permanent institutions, with permanent ideals and objectives, with permanent staff, which we accept to be instruments that make up the needs of poor communities, and who believe that valuing the existing forces in the Communities can all grow in all social and economic aspects.

 

This is our Ideal and in response to this is that we organize and we live!

  


 

Kind Regards,

Domenico Liuzzi,

Kulima's National Director.
