Building country capacity to deliver multi-sectoral nutrition programming is one of our key strategies for sustainability and success. To deliver on this promise, we design quality capacity strengthening programs to fit the needs of our global and country-based partners, making investments in people that last beyond our immediate programming and promote resilience.

Our Work

  • Increases the impact of meetings and workshops through skilled design, strategic facilitation, and effective measurement
  • Centers around evidence-based approaches to curriculum design, mentoring and TA provision, organizational capacity development, and performance improvement.
