Focusing on the issues that make a difference

During our regular contact with different stakeholders we look for issues that affect initiators and supporters but where individual action is beyond their normal focus or capacity. As part of our non-financial support to NGOs, we might organise workshops or studies with the goal of overcoming this barrier and provide practical answers that can be turned into action.

Our general approach is to bring together the perspectives of different stakeholders, highlight concrete cases of strategies, best practices and challenges. To put it all in context, we also try to provide a good level of background knowledge. In addition, we connect these activities with our other initiatives and work with partners to further increase the effect.

Developing and implementing projects is a core activity for NGOs. When funding is available and the first results are encouraging, projects tend to grow, be it by scaling them up or by replication. Which strategies and models can be considered? And, to make a project fit for growing, which factors and challenges should to be considered since the beginning?
