Apac district NGO Forum will soon start investigations into the increasing cases of collapse of non-governmental and civil society organizations in the district.

According to the Chairman board NGO-Link Forum ,Mr Tom Opwonya Superman, the number of NGOs and CBOs are reducing in the district due to founder member syndrome, poor financial management and limited capacity of staff to fundraise for the organizations.

Opwonya who is also the coordinator of the Apac Anti-Corruption Coalition (TAACC) made the remarks at emergency board meeting organized by NGO –Link Forum at its board room on Tuesday.

He advised that the NGO/CBO actors need to be proactive and vibrant in order for them to begin producing and present fundable proposals to the donors so that they become relevant to the communities.

The coordinator NGO-Link forum Apac Mr Jamara Sam said a number of NGOs/CBOs have so far closed their offices giving examples such as ASDI, CADOVIC, PASUD and LEMU which they expect to close their business in the due course.

He noted that the NGO-Link forum will create a small committee to audit all the civil society organizations across the district to access issues of their legality and existence
