Our work in partnership with experienced local organizations strengthens our development work.
We understand that our partners and community members are best placed to define their own needs and should be the primary drivers of development in their communities.
In collaboration with our partners, we define, implement, monitor and evaluate our development projects to ensure their ongoing viability and effectiveness. We recognize that, through our partnerships, we have the opportunity to learn from the knowledge and experience of our partners, while providing additional support, guidance and resources to meet their needs.
