The social sector plays a significant role in recognising and working with communities that are deprived or are not aware of many of their entitlements. While the sector focuses it’s efforts towards the community, it also works closely with the government systems and the policymakers to ensure important challenges and gaps in our society are brought to the notice of decision-makers. These decisions have a key effect on the last mile delivery of the governmental support systems.
NGO federations and networks play crucial roles in this process by becoming a collective voice of the sector as well as the community and lobbying with the system either in the formation of new policies or effective implementation of the existing ones. These federations and networks gives strength to the grassroot voices as a representative of various communities.
