Mashonaland East Provincial Affairs minister Apolonia Munzverengi said that there is a need to conduct an audit of all non-governmental organisations (NGOs) in the province.
Munzverengi said this while officially opening the Rosaria Memorial Trust Centre in Magaya village, Murewa on Tuesday. She said:
After seeing the good work being done here, I asked my PA (personal assistant) that I need a complete list of all NGOs (non-governmental organisations) in this province.
We want NGOs that are here to change lives, to give a service to the people not to come and look for money; to establish an NGO to make money. We are saying no to that.
We are going to make an audit, we also want to go and witness what they are doing in our communities. We want to go and launch what they are doing in our communities, we want to know the benefits for the area in which they are working on.
A donation of US$89 839 for the construction of the Rosaria Memorial Trust Centre (RMTC) was done by Japan’s Grant Assistance for Grassroots Human Security Projects.
