Sustainability Plan

DDS-NK seeks to ensure sustainable communities and continuity of  initiated programs activities and results even in the absence of donor support. For the next five years, we will implement the following sustainability strategies:

  • First and foremost, we reorganize that our program should meet community needs without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs, as such, throughout this strategic cycle, we will address environmental challenges under results are three and engage in program approaches that will ensure sustainable environment.
  • We will invest in approaches that will create economic resilience in communities and promote human rights through evangelistic lens, thus, improving access the services that addresses household basic needs including human rights – assuring social and economic sustainability lens of our program.
  • We will develop a Resource Mobilization Strategy to grow and expand our sources of funding externally and internally for the continuity of our existence and our work. In brief, the resources mobilisation strategies that will be employed include; capacity building of staff on proposal writing and post-award management, grow more networks and partnership in order built strong consortium during joint proposal writing, improve branding, visibility and Knowledge Management and learning to ensure our viability, evidence and continuity in the development workspace. DDS-NK will seek membership/ partnership with FundforNGOs to improve Intelligence gathering for funding opportunities worldwide. We will continue to grow DDS-NK internal asset based and cash flows to finance some our programmatic activities even in the absence or limited donor funding.
  • DDS-NK has designed and will continue to adapt to activity designs that can be implemented through the community support structure (formal and informal structures) such as the Water User Committee, Disaster Risk Management Committees, local councils, extension workers and cultural structures including the church structure and the available church resources to advance the church parish development plans which are currently aligned with the government Parish Development Model (PDM).
  • Through using the right based and facilitative approaches to programming, especially during program development, monitoring, review and replanning, we will facilitate communities to participate in every node of program cycle, this will ensure our plans are aligned to addressing community priority. Engaging communities during planning will also ensure community contribution to the development efforts are integral part of our programs for sustainability
  • In addition to aligning our strategic priorities to the SDG, NDP III and the respective district plans, DDS-NK will contribute to the mindset change through sensitization and mobilization of communities to benefit from existing government Programmes.
