An examination is presented on a type of NGO, known as a network NGO that, it is argued, is currently exploiting the personal links across the government-NGO divide, and acknowledging their interdependence. Characteristics of such NGOs are that they have a broad membership, consisting of professionals from the same ethnic background. Two examples of such network NGOs are Dupoto e Maa, which is based in Kajiado, Kenya, and is an organization mainly lobbying for Maasai pastoralists; and SADEA, based in Same, Tanzania, focusing on conventional) fundraising activities for social projects. Case studies of these two organizations are reviewed in a discussion on their relevance in the government-NGO debate. Abstract supplied by kind permission of CABI.
