CUBS PROJECT assists RIVCHO with Organisational Development (OD)

The Community Based Support for Orphans and Vulnerable Children (CUBS) project is in its fourth year and RIVCHO has been privileged to be a part providing care and support to one thousand two hundred and fifty children in Udu LGA of Delta State. One of the key deliverables of this USAID sponsored project is the building of capacities of local NGOs engaged by the Principal Recipients MSH/Africare. Thus many of RIVCHO staff have attended several trainings during the implementation of this project. The most recent been the Organizational Development (OD) sessions held in Warri 22nd to 26th July 2013, proving to be most useful.
After some lectures and discussions on the first day, staff & board member present agreed that the vision of RIVCHO needed to be reworded. Thus every area of RIVCHO’s corporate person was xrayed in the light of world class best practices and standards. Our mission statement and core values statement were reworked a little bit but our goals had to be completely re-written in the light of our history and where we want to go. Thereafter objectives that were SMART were developed before activities and tasks were derived thereform. Next was the costing of the various tasks and budgeting. At the end, a strategic plan for five years January 2014 to December 2018 was developed now awaiting Board approval.
RIVCHONEWS commends all staff and Board members who were a part of this rigorous process. We also give our utmost thanks to the CUBS project for this all important development. With our DNA clearly defined, RIVCHO is set to fly high!
