Why Governance?

Governance is critical to effectively run an organization. The overall goal of governance is to ensure that the objectives of the organization are achieved and the interests of various stakeholders are protected. FMSF thus, works towards attainment of this objective by promoting good governance practices in the development sector.

Our Approach

Over the years, through extensive study and research, we have gained expertise in the area of NPO Governance.

We are involved in:

NPO Governance Programme - a six monthly online programme
Governance review
Setting up of governance processes
Trainings & Workshops
NPO Governance Tool Box Series

NPO Governance Program

Over the years, FMSF has been engaging in the area of Governance and have been one of the pioneers in setting up of accountability standards for the NPO Sector. However, a need for sustained training program was also felt. The global online program on NPO Governance is a humble effort in this direction. The course is completely web-bsased and is divided into 4 modules which is to be completed in six months time.

Governance Review

Having a strong governance mechanism is imperative for organizational effectiveness. We help in reviewing the governance processes of NPOs, to make it more exclusive, vibrant and effective. Over the years, we have provided our services to various agencies to review their existing governance structure. For this, we have developed a well-researched Governance Review tool.
