?

GuideStar worked with BoardSource, the national leader in nonprofit board leadership and governance, to create this section, which enables organizations and donors to transparently share information about essential board leadership practices.

Board Orientation & Education ?
Why does this matter? Without clarity around their responsibilities and expectations, board members are not positioned to succeed. They may find themselves challenged to fulfill their governance responsibilities or frustrated by the expectations that the organization has set for them. BoardSource recommends that every new board member participate in a formal orientation process, and that all board members sign a pledge or agreement committing to their board service and to all of the responsibilities and expectations that come with service. Ideally, board members also should participate in a formal governance training program prior to serving on a board.

Does the board conduct a formal orientation for new board members and require all board members to sign a written agreement regarding their roles, responsibilities, and expectations?
Response Not Provided
CEO Oversight ?
Why does this matter? Oversight and management of the chief executive is one of the board’s most important legal responsibilities. The CEO or executive director is the board's single employee, and - just like any other employer/employee relationship - regular and written assessment is critical to ensuring that the chief executive and board are communicating openly about goals and performance. BoardSource recommends that boards conduct formal, written reviews of their chief executives on an annual basis, which should include an in-person discussion with the chief executive and distribution of the written evaluation to the full board.

Has the board conducted a formal, written assessment of the chief executive within the past year?
Response Not Provided
Ethics & Transparency ?
Why does this matter? A commitment to handling conflicts of interests is essential to creating an organizational culture of transparency. Boards should create and follow a policy for identifying and handling conflicts of interest, whether real or perceived. BoardSource recommends that organizations review the conflict-of-interest statement and require signed disclosures from all board members and senior staff on an annual basis.

Have the board and senior staff reviewed the conflict-of-interest policy and completed and signed disclosure statements within the past year?
Response Not Provided
Board Composition ?
Why does this matter? The best boards are composed of individuals who bring a variety of skills, perspectives, backgrounds, and resources to tackle the complex and strategic challenges confronting their organizations. BoardSource recommends that boards commit to diversity and inclusion by establishing written policies and practices, which include strategic and intentional recruitment of diverse board members, continual commitment to inclusivity, and equal access to board leadership opportunities.

Does the board ensure an inclusive board member recruitment process that results in diversity of thought and leadership?
Response Not Provided
Board Performance ?
Why does this matter? Boards need to regularly assess their own performance. Doing so ensures that they are being intentional about how they govern their organization, which is a critical component of effective board leadership. BoardSource recommends that a board conduct a self-assessment of its performance a minimum of once every three years to ensure that it is staying on track with its roles and responsibilities.

Has the board conducted a formal, written self-assessment of its performance within the past three years?

This program will also assist children and their family with adequate nutrition.The organization facilitates communication between sponsors and their children. The organization will update sponsors with attendance and progress reports of the students.  It will also help the sponsors and children to correspond with each other. One-to-one sponsorship is what makes Ganga Ghar a unique organization.  Sponsorship is not an anonymous gift to an unknown recipient or group.  Sponsors know exactly where their dollars are being spent and can witness the progress of their specific student -- a direct benefit of their kindness.

Impact Summary from the Nonprofit

Education narrates a country’s well being. Aristotle said ages ago, "[t]he educated differ from the uneducated as much as the living from the dead." So a country like Nepal, where 1 out of 3 males and 2 out of 3 females are illiterate, is unwell.  However, the essence of education has been growing in the country in the recent past, thanks to the National and International non-profit organizations. Ganga Ghar is a corollary of the dismal situation in the field of education in Nepal. Ganga Ghar was founded in October 2009 with the mission to improve the lives of impoverished children in the country by sponsoring for their education and other fundamental needs (stationaries, clothes, food etc.). It has since devoted its services to encourage parents to admit their children into school and not to pull out for not being able to afford their children’s education. Ganga Ghar Started its benevolent act with just 5 children. Today the number has grown to 70 children across the country. There has been no looking back since the foundation. Parents are relieved and exuberant to see their kids go to school and the children themselves are the happiest to be learning how to read and write. The feat has resulted in a sense of gratification among the seniors in the villages, who cannot read or write themselves. This kind of response has lifted the enthusiasm of the committee members of Ganga Ghar who are working day in, day out to expand the services to more underprivileged children.
