Cunina Nepal- Organizational Assessment
Cunina is an NGO in Nepal which provides educational scholarships to underprivileged students in Sankhuwasabha and Kathmandu. As the scale of operations of Cunina was rapidly rising, the organization was facing issues related to the operations because of which there was a lot of fire-fighting and spontaneous decisions to be made. To address the organization’s issues, Biruwa Advisors conducted an organizational assessment of operations including reporting structure, reporting formats, and control mechanisms and reviewed the scope of departments to map communication gaps, ambiguous reporting lines & duplication of responsibilities in the first phase. After the collection of information and its analysis, Biruwa Advisors provided a broad way-forward, on the basis of which specific areas of intervention could be taken up in the next phase based on the organization’s priority. Through this assessment, the organization was able to bring the situation and the gaps to their priority list of intervention so that action plans could be formulated to address them.

Our previous dealings with Biruwa Advisors have left us with a highly positive impression of their capabilities in Nepal and the Nepalese access to finance landscape. Biruwa Advisors acted as the country coordinator in Nepal for the Access to Finance study with Biruwa Advisors liaising with local parties in Nepal to ensure proper interface was being provided to various stakeholders that provided inputs for the study.
Biruwa Advisors helped me through the initial phase of my company. I learnt from the experience that the mentors had. I built my network with right people and learned so much about the Nepalese market as soon as I came back from the United States. Biruwa Advisors helped me make right decisions through out.
