Construction of officeSince formation of PASTORA the Association was basically housed by the parish.This has been a challenge since the parish is also face with problem of house to facilitate itfunction. The Parish is greatly in need of infrastructures of the existing structures . 2010 wehave struggle to put the office structure which has two rooms. This is ever the history for such a small organization to construct it own office structure. Despite of the struggle to put this structure is done it is not yet fully complete finishing and wiring of the house still require finance to facilitate the completion of the building.

CHALLENGES:Much as set a goals to be achieve there are always challenges that affect theimplementation of the activities. The Association also experienced a lot of thechallenges that had affect the smooth implementation of the set activities of 2010
  • 13 • Inadequate fund. There were no enough funds to facilitate more activities that association intended to carry out during the year 2010. • The donor organization demand to access fund was above the requirement that Association could compete for the funding programs. • Lack of skill personnel’s to guide the successful implementation of activities. • Lack efficient communication network. The current internet connection had been on and off. Above the computer that Association browed from Pabo catholic parish it does operate well due to other technical problem. • The political season has been a big stumbling block since the scheduled of the activities would be consider as the political mobilization process15. RECOMMENDATION: • The NGO and donors organizations should consider the CBO for small grants that could help to enhance their potential. • The local government should empower our intervention since we all focus on community empowerment.______________________________________________________________________________ Pabo Save the Orphans Association is registered with Amuru district Community Development office and is Member of Gulu District Ngo Forum.
