In order to facilitate better operational planning and communications with the East Gambella Bethal Synod (EGBS), PIA agrees it is important for us to become familiar with employment and other policies governing NGO’s in Gambella. This will allow us to get it right the first time when we initiate new projects and programs.

During our 2012 visit to Gambella, EGBS and PIA leadership discussed the need to set up a local Board or review authority to assist local PIA staff with decisions being made on projects and programs.
