It’s about building sustainable solutions and ensuring the providers of support services, both people and institutions, are helped and supported in their long term development and growth.
The Hope Foundation realise that focusing purely on practical programmes and solutions, without looking closely at the organisations that manage them, is short sighted and superficial.
Building the capacities of individuals, organisations and institutions is vital for the strengthening of civil society and grassroots development. By increasing the capacity of organisations involved in development, interventions can be made more effective and their results longer lasting.
In response to this need, The Hope Foundation regularly organises capacity building programmes for institutions and individuals. These provide training and the tools needed to effectively assess their own information needs, set their own priorities and build their own information systems. This programme has been developed in conjunction with the Jayaprakash Institute of Social Change (JPISC), a respected college in Kolkata.
