BALA Strategic Plan 2010 - 2015
Ladies and Gentlemen we as Batswana must take charge of our own destiny, build on what our fore fathers have achieved in terms of good governance, democracy and development and in order a successful future for our generations to come.
We have identified a good number of products/opportunities of which we will develop business plans to inform their implementation one such product is the investment vehicle which we will pursue to ensure financial sustainability of BALA and its members. We can no longer continue to rely on Government and Donors as our primary sources of revenue. May I emphasise that we can only reach our dreams of being a financially sustainable organisation through commitment hard work and dedication.
This five year strategic plan is aimed at complementing governments development agenda stipulated in the National Development Plan 10 the Millennium Development Goals and Vision 2016 It is against this background that the planning duration is tight to these important milestones.
An finally I would like to urge the staff of BALA to be ruthless in pursuit of excellence if we are to be a “Model of excellence in the promotion of local governance”. We need to have self-discipline of the highest order, we need to be persistent in our resolve to reach our personal and organisational goals, preserve and have unwavering belief in ourselves to be able to take the organisation to the next level. The transition of BALA from an unknown and probably irrelevant organisation to a robust local governance body which is transparent, customer driven, and accountable is inevitable.
