AIMS AND OBJECTIVES
Towards the implementation of this mandate, the AGA goals has been highlighted with three core functions, amongst others,
Diaspora Agenda and the civil society
Monitoring and evaluation
To serve as a policy development forum that would enable productive interface among policy of other NGOs and the elaboration / advancement of common values and goals such as;
HIV Aids/TB awareness campaign
Improvement of prisoners welfare
Motherless/destitute home care support
Health awareness rally and lectures
Diaspora Agenda and the civil society:
The nature and outcome of the development and prosecution of the Diaspora agenda was imperative due to the global acceptance and definition of the term. Africa has been baptized with dark presentation in all fields so we need a mandatory face-lift.
We advocate development in Africa and promote the repatriation of scientific knowledge from Diaspora to Africa and establishment of cooperation between those abroad and at home. We promote networking and collaboration between experts in their representative countries of origin and in the Diaspora.
Afro Global Alliance (AGA) is already engaged in plans to organize workshops as part of its program. Promoting Tourism in the Diaspora to the grass root level, participating in cultural exchange and global interactions.
Monitoring and Evaluation:
A major shortcoming of Africas undertaking has been the lack of an autonomous evaluation mechanism. This has instigated the lengthening of the period of implementation of major programmes.
NGOs represent one of the major pillars of good governance, along with the other actors of civil society, government and the market. Where does the research on the subject stand today? What are the most recent hypotheses and results that have been produced concerning NGOs in general and Africa in particular? What are the issues addressed by this forum and which questions need to be answered.
The AFRO GLOBAL ALLIANCE through research has observed the need for positive development in our societies. NGOs, experts, local and regional networks on the development scene have by no means resolved the fundamental issue of short-term palliative activities and oversights.
The lack transparency and diversity of stakeholders in the NGO process compromising the legitimacy of NGO standard-setting activities has mandated there must be defined checks and strategy for evaluation.
