NGO Contribution in the Development of Country: Bangladesh

Page 1 of 37

EXECUTIVE SUMMARY:

INTRODUCTION

Bangladesh has a strong tradition of private philanthropic initiatives for humanistic and voluntary works for people's welfare. Many schools, colleges, hospitals and other voluntary initiatives for public service have their origin in the philanthropic values of caring and sharing.

It is with the same spirit of caring and sharing that after the Liberation War in 1971 many dedicated individuals took initiatives for people's welfare, at the beginning in the form of relief and rehabilitation, which subsequently transformed into NGOs working in wide ranging areas of development and social change. As a complimentary force to the state sector, NGOs have made great contributions to public welfare, in many cases becoming national and international models which are being replicated in many countries of the world.

RATIONALE

It is against the backdrop of the robust growth of the NGO sector in Bangladesh in terms of both size and influence that TIB undertook this study on "Problems of Governance in the NGO Sector: The Way Out". TIB's rationale in undertaking this study stems from a realization that it is in the interest of the sector itself, its continued success, credibility and sustainability that issues related to governance and corruption, if any, should be confronted head on.

Much before the study was planned there have been reports and complains of some NGOs moving away from the values of volunteerism and self-less service to the poor and needy. There have been allegations that while NGO intervention has helped significantly facilitated uplift of the poor, it is only a relatively much lesser portion of the resources that reach the real target group.

OBJECTIVES

This study was undertaken to bring out an overall picture of the nature, extent and process of governance economic development, failure, irregularities and corruption in the NGO sector IN Bangladesh. It also puts forward certain recommendations as a way out for promoting accountability, transparency and good governance in the sector. The main objective is to bring into focus the importance of the contribution in the development of country and soul searching within the sector and to sensitize all the stakeholders with particular emphasis on self-regulation of NGOs.

KEY FINDINGS

Great's strides have been made on health, social awareness, nutrition, environment development, employment generation etc. it has experienced rising rates of growth, a slow but steady decline in poverty and impressive progress in terms of social development, outperforming some of its richer neighbors on a number of Millennium Development Goals. On the other hand, it has an abysmal record on governance and was ranked as the world's most corrupt country for five consecutive years by Transparency International. There is an emerging view that the country's extremely active development NGO sector has contributed to some of the more positive achievements.

These problems are evident in every sector in Bangladesh, from developing rural peoples and to growth overall economic the NGOs will bear a happy and plateful nations in the country.
