Résumé
NANGO Northern Region has been experiencing a low level attendance rate of the member organizations that form part of the Women and Gender sector to the training workshops as well as the workshops and conferences on national processes. The sector is composed of approximately forty (40) organizations but most of the members have been either totally absent at the NANGO activities or extremely inconsistent in their attendance. A study has been conducted to elicit information concerning the cause of the low attendance rate of the representatives of the sector. Semi-structured interviews among eleven (11) representatives of the Women and Gender sector and observations are used in the study. The major findings from the research that are affecting the attendance levels of the members include the following ; poor communication between NANGO and the representatives of the sector, shame due to inability to pay the NANGO membership subscription fee, too much work on the part of the members because of low staff complement, crowding of NANGO programs in a short space of time ,transport challenges, irrelevance of NANGO activities to members and inadequate gender friendly facilities(toilet and facilities for breastfeeding mothers). In conclusion the major issue that is being highlighted by the members as hindering them from participating in the NANGO activities is the poor communication. Nine (9) out of the eleven(11)respondents note that they are affiliated to other networks besides NANGO and at times choose to attend the activities of the other networks instead of those of NANGO. They note that their choice of attending the activities of other networks over those of NANGO is influenced by the fact that NANGO activities are less relevant to them. From observation, one may suggest that the members appear to be more interested in other NANGO services which include provision of funds, recognition from NANGO through regular visits from the NANGO secretariat as well as invitations to the NANGO activities and protection in the event of political unrest. In order for NANGO to be more effective in their service delivery to the Women and Gender Sector members, it should do the following ; update their membership database for effective communication, revise the membership subscription fees, provide transport reimbursements to members, hire expert trainers, incorporate issues of gender in all their workshop programs, consult members on the training needs as well as providing adequate facilities that cater for the practical gender needs of women
