Local Partner Assessment & Due Diligence Project

Waayeel Consulting conducted a rigorous assessment to ensure alignment between READO LNGO and the mission, values, and goals of Plan International. By conducting due diligence, we thoroughly evaluated the potential partners’ credibility, capabilities, and track record in delivering impactful community-based projects. The assessments involved comprehensive research, on-site visits, interviews, and analysis of the NGOs’ financial stability, governance structures, program effectiveness, and overall impact.


The project scope encompassed a multifaceted approach, including an in-depth examination of READO LNGO's alignment with Plan International's mission, values, and goals. Additionally, it involved a comprehensive assessment of potential partners' credibility, capabilities, and track record in delivering impactful community-based projects. The scope extended to evaluating financial stability, governance structures, and program effectiveness of NGOs, ensuring a holistic understanding of their suitability for collaboration with Plan International.


Throughout the project, Waayeel Consulting undertook a series of key activities to facilitate a thorough assessment and due diligence process. These activities included:


  1. Conducting extensive research into potential partners' backgrounds and operations.
  2. Conducting on-site visits to observe project activities.
  3. Engaging in interviews with key stakeholders.
  4. Analyzing financial documents to evaluate financial stability and transparency.
  5. Evaluating governance structures to ensure accountability and sustainability.
  6. Assessing program effectiveness through project outcomes and community feedback.

The assessment and due diligence process yielded valuable insights for Plan International, empowering informed decision-making regarding potential partnerships. By ensuring alignment with organizational values and goals, as well as verifying the credibility and effectiveness of potential partners, this project aims to strengthen collaborative efforts towards sustainable community development and the advancement of children's rights. Ultimately, the outcome of this project will enhance Plan International's capacity to forge impactful partnerships and drive positive change in communities worldwide.

The retreat was carefully designed to provide a balance of reflection, learning, and rejuvenation. Through a series of workshops, training programs, and team-building activities, participants had the chance to deepen their skills, expand their knowledge, and strengthen their professional capacities. Topics covered during the retreat included child welfare, trauma-informed care, leadership development, and organizational management.

Beyond the formal training sessions, the retreat also offered ample opportunities for informal networking and relationship-building. Team members had the chance to engage in open dialogue, share best practices, and exchange ideas with colleagues from different regions and backgrounds. These interactions not only fostered a sense of camaraderie but also promoted cross-collaboration and knowledge-sharing within the organization.

In addition to the professional development aspect, the retreat also prioritized staff well-being and self-care. Participants were encouraged to take time for personal reflection, relaxation, and mindfulness practices. By stepping away from their daily work routines and immersing themselves in a supportive and nurturing environment, staff

members were able to recharge their batteries and return to their roles with renewed energy and enthusiasm.

Overall, the annual staff retreat for SOS Somalia and Somaliland was a resounding success. It provided staff members with the tools, resources, and inspiration needed to continue making a positive impact in the lives of vulnerable children and families. Waayeel Consulting is proud to have played a role in facilitating this transformative experience and looks forward to continuing its partnership with SOS Children’s Village in the future.
