A sustainability strategy is important to see BeLA succeed in the long run. Sustainability is about continuity - the continued existence and functionality of BeLA. Continued resource mobilization is a must for every strategy to be realized and for the organization to remain functional. The following are key sustainability strategies.
Versatility: BeLA plans to venture into all thematic areas (intervention areas) vigorously. The organization will carry out wide research and ensuring programs are in line with the latest development initiatives. Within the third year a review will be done to ensure it still answers the needs of the community and if it is still viable to be stuck within the same geographical areas.
Capacity Strengthening: It is important for BeLA to continue capacitating her staff and volunteers to have a skilled team and at the same time create continuity in the organization. BeLA will also leverage the volunteer model and will capacitate with opportunities to employ some of them from the communities. Staff will also be capacitated through engaging in external trainings with universities and training institutions as well as seminars, workshops etc.
Partnerships: BeLA will make use of valuable win-win partnerships to enhance her intervention and impact. BELA should create implementing partnerships with government and community leaders and provide more services to the community. Working with the community also enables the benefits to be sustained even if they decide to wean off communities.
Visibility: A visible organization stays in the mind of target beneficiaries, donors, stakeholders, like minded organizations, and partners. BeLA will always endeavor to enhance visibility to key stakeholders in order to be known at various levels, from community to international levels as a bona fide humanitarian and development organization.
