With more than two decades of experience in the NGO scenario, Development of NGOs has been of utmost priority. We found that NGOs across Kerala have been rendering considerable services to society, but due to lack of professional approach or organized way of functioning, the desired effect is not attained. Many NGOs recognize the need for enhancing technical skills in the area of management but are often sidelined because of the financial constraints. The need for leadership development of NGO key personnel is not often a priority. Thus on the basis of study and research over the years, CEVA identified 15 topics of relevance to be given training and assistance to NGOs. A-year long project with monthly training imparted to religious based NGOs also to promote grass root level institutions in the development process of better functioning. The project implemented in 2011 was funded by UPS Foundation USA. The project “Enhancing & Empowering the NGOs of Kerala” has been a successful endeavor which was instrumental in bringing out vibrant CEVA into the limelight.
