BasicNeeds-Ghana has begun consultations on the development of its new country strategic plan for the period 2019 to 2023. The process, which is funded by UK aid, will help the organisation come out with a comprehensive strategy and plan of action for the next five (5) years. This five-year country strategic plan, when finalised, will be the third developed by BasicNeeds-Ghana. The process is led by Shamwill Issah, a consultant with vast experience in development work, programming, strategy and fundraising.
In his opening remarks at a one-day staff consultative workshop held for the staff of BasicNeeds-Ghana on November 1, 2018 at Tamale, Peter Yaro, Executive Director of BasicNeeds-Ghana, set the agenda for the consultations. He said that, as implementors of the strategic plan, staff input was indispensable in shaping the process and eventual outcome. He indicated that several other stakeholders will be consulted so as to develop a country strategic plan that was relevant and practical in guiding BasicNeeds-Ghana towards achieving its mission and objectives in the next phase of the organisation’s existence.
