CBO Partnership Program
GPFD understands change makers in our partner communities are already doing important work but require organizational support to operate more effectively and attract additional funding. We partner with grassroots East African organizations to accelerate locally-led change by assessing and strengthening organizational health. We work with small yet motivated community-based organizations (CBOs) to assess their strengths, needs, and goals; evaluate how GPFD can provide value and impart new skills; and then develop a work plan with clear objectives and timelines for the partnerships.
