The critical areas that Shontoug Foundation work on to produce results in order to realize its vision and work together on agreed mission are Organizational Excellence, Enhanced Partnership with Stakeholders, Capability-Building for Community Partners and Social Enterprise Development/ Enhancement.
The Key Result Areas (KRAs) were identified by the group after analyzing the external environment that either benefit or threaten Shontoug Foundation. Under KRA on Organizational Excellence, the Board of Trustees and staff are key actors in the pursuit of vision and mission. Thus, two separate goals were set for the BOT and staff. The goal for BOT who have been supportive and committed to Shontoug’s mission is “Sustained commitment and more responsive Board of Trustees”. Staff’s goal, on the other hand is ”More effective and innovative staff capable of designing and implementing culturally – appropriate programs and services”.
Three goals were set for KRA on Enhanced Partnership with Stakeholders. Goal 1 is “Sustained, openness and commitment of partners to support identified programs and services”. Goal 2 is “Strengthened partnership on community-managed environmental program and social entrepreneurship”.
