Year: 2019

 

Just like most local non-government organizations, the Consortium of Bangsamoro Civil Society (CBCS) has been using ICTs, mostly as a result of partnerships with international organizations, but hasn’t pursued it strategically. The engagement took off with a readiness assessment looking into current practices, technology tools, staff roles and organizational policies. The staff also went through the Digital NonProfit Ability Assessment (by NetHope) to determine where they’re at in their Digital NonProfit journey.

A series of trainings were conducted including mobile data collection using Kobotoolbox to address monitoring and evaluation and other data collection requirements, online task management and work collaboration using Asana and information/documents management using Google Drive. As part of the redesign of its website, discussions on communications strategy and branding were done with the staff. An email discussion group was also set up for internal communication.

The Consortium of Bangsamoro Civil Society (CBCS) has known Victor Sapar since he was with one of our NGO partners in Davao City. In 2019, we asked Victor to help us with documents / information management and re-design of our website. After first meeting with the key staff, his intervention broadened to include looking into current practices on how we apply digital technologies not only to make our work more efficient but also to increase our impact to beneficiaries. Series of training sessions were held on digital data collection, website management, task management and documents and information management using online tools that are either free or affordable to a local NGO. Victor also gave practical recommendations on improving processes and set up mechanisms for continued learning on digital transformation. In all the activities, Victor worked closely with our key staff and was very accommodating, helpful and open to sharing his knowledge and experience.
