CSOs see prospects of thriving within networks

Some Civil Society Organisations in Tanzania have advanced their ‘business case’ to work more closely with their respective regional networks so as to have a greater impact  in addressing common issues of interest in the community.

This was said by different participants at the Foundation for Civil Society (FCS) Information Session conducted in mid July that aimed at informing CSOs on the FCS Strategic direction and how well it can continue working closer with CSOs.

Pilika Fumbo from Mbozi NGO Network in Mbeya region confessed that some CSOs at one point might have gone astray by choosing to work in isolation, but what matters now is joining efforts in solving matters of common interest for the whole community and the nation at large.

Philimon Mwansansu from Mbeya City Non-Governmental Network and his fellow CSO stakeholders also see the need for these networks to reach out to more organisations so as to have a stronger base which can impact many lives of people in the community. 

He added that the CSOs networks speaks on behalf of individual organisations when addressing the roles of CSOs in different development issues, as well as contributing to formulation of different policies in the country. Thus, the Networks should have a systematic coordination with wider reach of organisations so as to better respond to the need of targeted communities.
