    Ngo sector never means to create a state within a state. Do own some percentage of each project proposal having some percentag of capacity building of government staff and some of the technical positions should be filled by ngo donations. For example pharmacists are technical healthworkforce and can be funded by ngo. Cmam projects may be new nutrition intervention and if govt local body is not trained enough the project impact might go ngative. Do add some projection of capacity building of govt staff and adding workforce can result iN sustainable outcome in the community. Donor always belive in funding for long term chang in behaviour rather than quaitativ outputs.

    Greetings from ONAAR Development Organization, Mansehra KPK, Pakistan. I have participated the event of the Day of NGOs at NCRD on 27.2.2015. The event was well organized, i felt pleasured, stall was also so fine decorated and exposed.
    Here is my submission for an important point of “NOC”. whereas a certificate granted by the registering authority is more than sufficient. and the authority passed it after the whole verification of the ngo office bods and other relevant requirements. noc is the main hurdle for new ngos, where as the old, big or ingos can get nocs easily.
    besides this an ngo having working experience of two years should allowed noc.
    Thanks
