NGO Partnerships in Education: A Framework of Opportunities and Obstacles.
DeJaeghere, Joan
With the move toward democracy in many countries and the changes of globalization, nongovernmental organizations (NGOs) play a greater role in providing social services. Organizations such as UNICEF, USAID, and the World Bank recognize the important role that NGOs could play in education development projects, particularly in the effort to achieve universal education and improved educational quality. This paper examines the role of NGOs and the partnerships they forge to improve the delivery of educational services. The paper focuses on partnerships between international or national NGOs and local communities. It presents a framework of tensions that may exist in NGO partnership projects. This framework relies on a synthesis of relevant literature on NGO partnerships and educational partnership projects, and the author's experience in working with a partnership project in rural Pakistan. The paper considers some implications for effective educational partnerships. Contains 5 notes and 26 references. (BT)
