One of the key objectives of the Right2Grow programme is organizational and institutional strengthening of its local partners. Right2Grow partner organizations have been facing diverse challenges to make an impact and achieve the desired results. That is why Right2Grow launched a programme called Small Grants for institutional strengthening of local partners.
2023 marked the beginning of this important initiative, launched by the Global Mutual Capacity Development (MCD) team and coordinated by AJCAD, Mali.
The programme aims to empower Right2Grow's local partners and helps them to respond to the organizational and institutional challenges they are facing today. This will be done by equipping these organizations with the strategic clarity, knowledge, and resources they need to grow their impact and advance systems change during and beyond the programme.
More than 20 applications from six programme countries were received. The selection process was coordinated by the Global MCD team and the final decision was made in close collaboration with Right2Grow country leads. A total of six local partner organizations were awarded, including:
1. Society Development Agency (SDA) from Bangladesh
2. Civil Society Network for Nutrition (RESONUT) from Burkina Faso
3. Youth Association for Active Citizenship and Democracy (AJCAD) from Mali
4. Touch the Heart from Uganda
5. Universal Intervention and Development Organization (UNIDOR) from South Sudan
6. Gurage Development and Cultural Association (GDCA) from Ethiopia
These organizations will implement their micro projects with technical assistance provided by the global team. The proposed activities encompass a wide range of initiatives, including the development of new policies and organizational strategies to enhance various project management aspects, along with providing financial support for the procurement of necessary software and equipment to bolster advocacy initiatives.
We extend our best wishes to the winners and eagerly anticipate future sessions where they can share their project experiences and the subsequent growth of their organizations.Back to overview
