How do we help each other to become better in our work?

Formally, through the working structures, trainings and workshops open to members and their partners. Recent events include a workshops on child rights held in Kenya and how to write winning EU grant proposals held in South America, Asia, and Africa.

Informally through the relationships and partnerships formed among network members. This has led to strategic partnerships between members and their partners, co-funding support, joint project work, development of joint fundraising campaigns, technical and IT sharing.

With in-house training in Brussels and outside of Europe, working groups apply member knowledge and experience to help other members and their partners learn and improve.

Current groups deal with

  • Institutional funding
  • Security
  • Finance
  • Communications and private fundraising
  • Training and learning
  • Advocacy

We help improve the capacity of our members and partners with training and ideas for best practice. EU-CORD is the venue for sharing knowledge, experience, and innovative practices to benefit our members, partners, and ultimately grass-roots beneficiaries.

In our rapidly changing sector we must continually improve our work. As our work becomes more complex, members help one another to grow and develop by sharing our different areas of expertise. These relationships – and the support we offer each other – are a defining feature of the EU-CORD network.
