We believe that local people must be at the centre of change. Their engagement and commitment is essential for ensuring that small actions are translated into lasting improvements in people’s quality of life. Therefore, we support and complement the efforts of local organisations which have already built strong relationships with local people.
Our local partners are NGOs, non-profits, social enterprises and community based organisations from Uganda, which is our current operational focus, whilst in the past we have developed partnerships and delivered projects in Jordan, India, Sri Lanka and Brazil. Our partners work in varying areas, from health care to women’s empowerment, child protection, social care and micro-entrepreneurship, but all of them have in common a holistic approach through which they tackle poverty. They understand that poverty has multiple causes and multiple consequences and, therefore, can not be addressed as a single issue.
Our partners are chosen on a series of criteria, one of the key ones being their reach within the community. All of our partners have the credibility and trust of the population around them, which provides them with deep knowledge about local issues and needs that can be addressed with our support. The Great Generation supports activity initiated by the community itself. Any new projects or ventures are started in consultation, assuring the full commitment and empowering local people to be at the centre of permanent change.
Interested in becoming a Local Partner?
If you are interested in becoming a partner and you do believe that you fulfill the above criteria, please contact us per email telling us more about your organisation and why you believe there is mutual benefit in becoming a partner of The Great Generation.
Our local partners can receive mentoring and advice from our team, when needed or if required on an on-going basis, during development visits and through a planned programme of support. We support the leadership of our partners to address mission critical needs and their team members to assure the ongoing success of project recommendations and outcomes. In turn, we expect reflection, cooperation and willingness to implement recommendations.
Equally, we benefit from the guidance and local knowledge our partners can offer in creating and delivering mutually beneficial projects for the communities they work with and the project participants we recruit for the programme.
The Great Generation is ready to support its local partners in any way possible. For some of them, we can act as a channel for donations and contributions.
