Development works best when people solve their own problems. We strive to ensure citizens have the knowledge, skills, abilities, and tools to make that a reality.
The initiatives we support aim to improve the quality of governance, increase the effectiveness of public services and amplify citizen voice in public affairs. We evaluate our partner organization’s capacity to implement activities, provide pro-bono assistance, and document lessons learned. We also ensure our partners are performing their work in a transparent and accountable manner.
