At EFICOR, Strategic Planning is an important exercise to provide strategic direction to the organization factoring in the context, the challenges and opportunities and making our response relevant to the prevailing issues of justice and poverty.
The process that gave us the current plan beginning in July 2014 and culminating in March 2015 was an experience of great learning. Of much significance were the revisiting and rewriting of the Vision and Mission statements of the organization and realigning the goals within the new framework.
Centre of Excellence is our flagship endeavour, which hopes to consolidate our several decades of experience in training and take it to greater heights where the courses we offer are certified by Universities. We have sharpened our focus on programmes and refined our responses with clear indicators. In a comprehensive approach to our Vision statement of “establishing a responsible and compassionate society”, we have consciously included in our plan efforts to reach out to the non-poor and to motivate them to live responsible and compassionate lives that will address issues of poverty, marginalization and the environment.
Our cross cutting themes include Conflict Resolution & Peace Building and Human Trafficking recognizing the immensity of these issues and the pressing need to respond. Increasing urbanization and its impact has given us impetus to give a special emphasis on urban poverty related programmes. We are also striving to raise funds from within the country.
As we stride into the future and carry out our plans for the years 2015 – 2020, we are deeply aware of the challenges and uncertainties that lie ahead. But our hope in achieving our plans is anchored in our faith. Faith in our God who has led us thus far and who will continue to lead us into the future in transforming communities and making a difference. Faith in our staff who untiringly and selflessly love and serve communities with commitment and passion. Faith in our supporting and implementing partners that they will continue to journey with us. Faith in our past experience and learning that it will help bring the impact in our programmes and faith in our systems and procedures that afford transparency and accountability to be good stewards of the resources entrusted us.
Join us in our efforts to create a just, responsible and compassionate society.
