More About our Work
1 / Organisational Capacity Strengthening
We support people and institutions to establish a purpose that has a deep rooted foundation; and then anchor it well by establishing the right balance of systems, processes and behaviours that inspire and motivate others towards set goals/objectives and targets.
2 / Enabling Collaboratives
We bring like-minded people and organisations together to i) co-design, implement and show sustainable community improvements using coalition models of collaborative working and ii) create platforms for continous peer learning and reflection around similar issues and challenges that they face along their journeys as change makers.
3 / Advocacy for CSO Effectiveness
We apply our years of experience in the sector to advocate for funding equity, trust based philanthropy practices and a favourable national and global policy and economic environment to ensure that community improvement interventions yield effective and sustainable results.
