Development of Citizen NGO Network

The main objective of the project Development of Citizen NGO network is to build a sustainable structure for planning, executing and financing projects between NGO:s in Vänersborg and Omaruru.

This can be done by using the existing structures and contacts, the result of ten years of successful cooperation between the two towns. To succeed in this an umbrella organisation should be created, through which future contacts with Omaruru should be handled. Under this organisation there will be room for churches as well as NGO:s.

In Namibia the Municipality of Omaruru will be our counterpart, as they have economic structures for coordination of different projects. Our aim is to let NGO:s in Vänersborg replace Vänersborgs kommun in the continued work between the partner towns. That way the work will continue on a citizen to citizen level.
