Capacity Building

Capacity Building

Group 15503

We host expert-led training sessions in a variety of fields to support skills transfer and accessible knowledge for communities in their pursuit of sustainable development.

Strengthening Skills

In our development framework, a crucial aspect of ensuring sustainability involves equipping people with the skills and knowledge they need to pursue their goals. Capacity building allows us to directly support leadership from within the communities we serve.

Capacity building is inherently self-perpetuating. Communities and individuals who are trained in specific skills are then able to train others, creating a life cycle of skills and knowledge transfer that is truly transformative.

Tangible Community Impact

The results of this program are truly expansive. The value of capacity-building can be difficult to measure – many individuals go on to train others in their network, producing exponentially greater impact.
