Do you work with an international NGO struggling with issues of participation and partnership? Are you with an African organisation seeking partnership with a UK-based NGO?

Find out how our International Programme can help you and your partners involve people more effectively, particularly in programmes addressing HIV/AIDS and conflict transformation.

As we help you to develop your capacity for participation & partnership, you will help us to help others develop theirs.
