In pursuance of the vision of reducing poverty (2006 - 2009) and the accompanying policy thrust of making the private sector the engine of growth, the need for integrating and co-ordinating the non-governmental organization and other private institution in the development activities of the district cannot be over-emphasized.
The District Assembly recognizes the fact that the Private Sector, NGCTs and Community Based Organizations contribute immensely in fulfilling the needs and aspirations of the people.
In addition to foreign bilateral and multilateral organizations who through the Government easily participate in assisting communities, other local NGOs and institutions have also been assisting in the development of the various sectors of the District. Seven (7) non-governmental organizations have been identified to be operating in the district.
