Recent highlights of our work in Central Asia
Analytical skills training programme
A British Embassy-funded project helping civil society organisations use action research to improve governance and prevent conflict in Fergana Valley (Kyrgyzstan and Tajikistan). We initiated this programme in Southern Kyrgyzstan in June 2011 with two partner NGOs, the Public Association Centre Interbilim in Osh and the Civil Society Support Center in Jalalabad.
Capacity building for the social sector
With UNICEF, we support a network of 23 youth centres in Kyrgyzstan by helping young people analyse employment opportunities and potential problems in their communities. We have also recently worked with UNICEF Uzbekistan to provide capacity building for NGO partners working with children and families, as well as with networks of disabled people’s organisations in Kazakhstan and Kyrgyzstan.
Democratisation, Human Rights, and Civil Society Development Programme
As part of a consortium in a project funded by the Danish Ministry of Foreign Affairs, we are helping civil society organisations in Ukraine, Moldova, and Belarus develop organisational assessment and development tools.
We have recently performed a number of major evaluations including for the local government portion of the Aga Khan Foundation's programme and the Tiri Pro-Poor Integrity Programme, both in Kyrgyzstan. We have worked with the International Federation of Biosafety Associations on strategic planning and resource mobilisation, and with GHK Consultants, Brussels, in designing the training component of a new European Union Volunteers for Humanitarian Aid programme (2013-14).
|There were many examples of knowledge, tools and techniques learned during programme activities being used to both improve the organisational functioning of the partners… (and) also being applied in work with self help groups.
