Strengthening Institutional Capacity of NPOs

Non-profit organisations work on some of society’s most challenging problems. This often leaves them with little to no focus on building their own teams and capabilities. The EdelGive Capacity Building Initiative, in collaboration with Social Lens, Tech4Good and X-Leap, aims to strengthen Non-Profit Organisations (NPOs) working to empower women both socially and economically, by equipping them with capabilities, to effectively achieve their core missions while building their institutional capacities.

We believe that if we desire to provide solutions to bigger social issues, there is a need to equip our non-profit organisations with investment in their people, processes and systems that is viewed separately from the programmes they run.
