The NGO Forum’s operational scope is at national level, with a focus on issues and processes that concern NGOs across the board and other constituencies.
The main objective of the Forum is to draw together NGOs and other civil society organisations; and to provide a strategic space for collective reflection, planning, adoption of strategies; and collective action on governance and development processes in the country.
From fewer than 50 registered members in 2001, by the end of 2009, the organisation counted more than 400 members drawn from NGOs working in Uganda - local, national NGOs/NGO networks and international NGOs. For the last 10 years of its existence, the National NGO Forum has become an important conduit for coordinating collective NGO action.
Under its NGO Sector Observatory and Profiling programme, the National NGO Forum is at the forefront of the campaign for an enabling operating environment i.e. the political context in which NGOs operate, the legal, regulatory and policy regime for NGOs, inter and intra NGO relations; and Government and donor relations.
The Policy Engagement and Enhancement programme of the National NGO Forum aims to offer interactive reflection spaces for the effective coordination of collective policy engagement by civil society on cross cutting social, economic and political issues of interest to civil society. National NGO Forum has spearheaded and coordinated NGO participation in multi-sectoral policy processes such as the Poverty Eradication Action Plan (PEAP) process and its successor - the National Development Plan (NDP); and hosts several collective civil society platforms.
The Membership and Constituency Services programme aims to mobilize civil society for collective action; provide tailor-made information to inform their work and enhance their capacities for engagement.
The National NGO Forum is also central to a host of civil society innovations in Uganda, including The NGO Quality Assurance Certification Mechanism (QuAM) which aims to strengthen NGO internal governance; helping the NGOs grow in governance, credibility and public legitimacy; The Citizens Manifesto, which is a Political Statement by ordinary citizens outlining their aspirations and demands in the quest for a peaceful, prosperous nation with happy people; UWEZO (‘capability’), an initiative to assess learning outcomes (numeracy and literacy) of young school going children; and The Civil Society Academia Cooperation, specifically tailored towards building a cadre of leadership for the non profit sector in the Uganda.
