Spotlight on Sarah Murungi

Sarah Murungi has been a part of Initiatives’ family since 2009 when she joined our team on the CDC-funded TA-NPI (2009- 2012) capacity building project. Honing her capacity development skills, Sarah rejoined Initiatives in 2014 as the Senior Organizational Capacity Development Specialist on the Advocacy for Better Health (ABH) project. ABH is primarily an advocacy project, but organizations need strong systems to be sustainable. As a subcontractor on ABH, Initiatives is responsible for strengthening the institutional capacity of 20 CSOs and supporting at least four to meet the requirements of being a prime recipient.

Leadership, Development and Sustaining Organizational Performance

From 2011 to 2013, Initiatives Inc. provided developmental assistance to two NGOs involved in community-based tuberculosis control activities in the Democratic Republic of the Congo under the USAID-funded TB TO 2015 project, led by PATH. In 2014, the follow-on Challenge TB Project launched, led by The Union and, Initiatives was called upon to resume its support to the NGOs and expand support to two additional organizations. Returning to work with the organizations after an 18-month hiatus provided Initiatives with an opportunity to learn where organizations thrived and where there were challenges still to be addressed.
