Our implementing partners are non-governmental and community-based organisations at the grassroots, with a good reputation in the community they represent.
Our strategic decision to work through local implementing partners is a crucial aspect of our development approach. It enables us to be attentive to actual needs on the ground, tapping into local knowledge, and putting decision making close to implementation. The capacity building of implementing partners is an important part of our work to strengthen civil society.

We work with implementing partners of varying capacities and abilities, which show willingness to both learn and develop. Implementing partners may range from community-based organisations, to national or international non-government organisations with an office in the country where we work. Regardless of form, the organisation will have been legally registered with the relevant authorities for at least two years and have a history of working for poor and marginalised people.
Clear criteria guide our selection of implementing partners. These include alignment with our vision and ways of working; good governance and zero tolerance for corruption; and a good reputation.
