Due to the shrinking civic space in the regions we work in, many
sexual and gender minorities and sex worker led groups can’t operate freely therefore unable to attract the support and capacities necessary in comparison to “mainstream” human rights organizations.
Our organisational and leadership development is preceded by a participatory assessment of the capacities and assets within an organisation useful to the realization of their mission and goals. This collaborative process leads to self-identified organisational development gaps and corresponding interventions.
Our grantees have prioritised the need to build their strategic thinking, financial management, programming, documentation, resource mobilisation, advocacy, governance, accountability to membership, and soft skills in leading social change work among others. We support our grantees address these gaps through direct financial support, collaboration with other peer funders and nurturing peer learning and exchange among our grantees.
