A 15 year journey celebrated

A 15 YEAR JOURNEY The month of September saw us pausing and reflecting on our 15 year journey as an organisation. We came to the end of a Strategic Planning process which spanned over a period of 3 months, with 27 stakeholder participants - staff, beneficiaries, local partner NGO, health department, traditional leadership and community members. The vision and mission of Woza Moya were discussed and reformed.

It was felt that the vision had to emphasise empowerment and development as opposed to relief and provision which were reflected in the older statements. These new statements still need further distillation and to be ratified by the Advisory and Management Boards.

The VISION of Woza Moya is that all people in the Ufafa Valley Community would be empowered to lead sustainably productive, healthy lives free from discrimination and less vulnerable to disasters with good access to services and social justice in a safe and clean community.

Our MISSION is to facilitate the sustainable empowerment of the Ufafa Valley Community to fulfil the vision through community health services, capacity building, education, civic participation, engagement with service providers and other strategic partnerships

The PROGRAMMES of Woza Moya were analysed critically by the participants to see how they could be changed and developed to be more effective and efficient.

The WASH programme has been streamlined into all the programmes of Woza Moya. After discussion it was felt the programmes should be renamed and re-organised to reflect the Vision, Mission and Values of Woza Moya, which had been re-stated through this process. The new programmes of Woza Moya would be: • Community Health Care • Child Care and Protection • Early Childhood Development • Sustainable Livelihoods • Paralegal and Advocacy • Youth Development Click here to read the full version: STRATEGIC PLAN FOR WOZA MOYA 2015-2017 www.wozamoya.org.za/send/4-organisational-development/100-woza-moya-strategic-plan-2015-2017.html
