The purpose of this study was to find out how different members of organizations who share same vision, mission and same logo coordinate their work. Specifically the study sought to find out how the different Save the Children organizations coordinate the operations of their programmes, what advantages they are getting and the disadvantages they encounter while conducting their work. Save the Children (SC) offices in Nairobi coordinate their work by having monthly directors meetings where by the directors discuss issues that need to be addressed which they get from their staff members and forward their decision to the task forces. The task forces are employees of the four SC offices in Kenya who in addition to their assignment in their respective organization implement the decisions taken at the directors meeting. The researcher has seen advantages in the coordination of operations in line with effective utilization of resources. The four SC organization share information, update one another on issue to be address formally in monthly meetings or informally since SC Sweden and SC Finland share the same building. SC Canada and SC UK country program office located in a different area share the same floor.
