‘Proper coordination a must among NGOs’

staff reporter

Various projects run by non-government organisations (NGOs) are failing to contribute properly to achieve Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) due to lack of coordination, speakers said recently.

Many NGOs start projects for the sake of projects and these organisations do not stay with people when the projects are over. Such initiatives cannot help achieve development goals by 2030, they said. The observation came on the occasion of the 30th founding anniversary of SKS Foundation at SKS Inn of Radhakrisnapur village in Gaibandha district.

Deputy speaker of the Parliament Advocate Fazle Rabbi Mia, MP inaugurated the programme while Foundation Chairperson Ayub Ali presided over the programme. Among others, whip of the Parliament Mahabub Ara Begum Gini, MP, Chairman of the Palli Karma-Sahayak Foundation (PKSF) Dr Qazi Kholiquzzaman Ahmed, were present as special guests. Deputy Commissioner of Gaibandha Goutam Chandra Pal, Superintendent of Police Mashrukur Rahman Khaled, Country Director of Action Aid Farah Kabir, were also present there.

Fazle Rabbi Mia said, “We can achieve the SDG goals by 2030, if NGOs like SKS Foundation continue their efforts for social development. SDG goals cannot be achieved keeping the underprivileged people behind. We have to bring them in the mainstream of society.”

“Government alone cannot do everything. Assistance of NGOs, philanthropists, intellectuals and professionals are necessary,” said deputy speaker who is also the founder chairman of SKS Foundation.

Mahabub Ara Begum Gini said the way SKS Foundation is working, it will help the disadvantaged group of this region. She also urged SKF to set up a medical college here in Gaibandha to ensure medical service for the poor. Kholiquzzaman Ahmed said, “People have multidimensional needs. They need education, health care, social capital, development of technology. So it needs coordination.” He also promised to bring one union of Gaibandha Sadar under PKSF project ‘Sambriddhi’ under the supervision of SKF.

Chairperson of SKS Foundation Ayub Ali said, “Our commitment was to make the underprivileged people solvent. SKS Foundation is working for their development.”

Chief Executive of SKS Foundation Rasel Ahmed Liton said SKS foundation has undertaken its work plan considering the current global and national perspective. As part of its plan, the foundation has set up SKS hospital, SKS Inn, SKS School and College, community radio ‘Sarabela 98.8’,” he said.
