Ours is a rapidly changing sector in which there is a continual drive for improvement. As we deal with increasing amounts of complexity we find that by sharing openly of our different areas of expertise we are able to help each other to develop.

Some recent examples include:

  • Child Rights workshop (Nairobi) as the culmination of 18-months of work exploring best practices in engaging with children to realize their rights – rights based approach, participation, communication, effective programming, advocacy.
  • Well established training programme which introduces key concepts of EU Development funding and what is needed to write a grant winning proposal. To date more than 400 people have been trained in 11 workshops held in Asia, South America, Africa and Europe.
  • Specialised workshops looking at specific issues – including gender, sustainability and inclusion of people with disabilities.
