Knowledge for Change does not only run its own projects but also supports a number of local, independent Community Based Organisations (CBOs) with similar organisation objectives to our own. Many of these CBOs are relatively small but are highly experienced in their respective fields and run extremely beneficial projects supporting the health and educational needs of local communities. The areas of focus of these CBOs are varied and include women and children’s empowerment, mental health services, family planning, HIV screening and counselling, caring for children with physical and mental disabilities and rehousing orphaned children within wider families and communities. K4C provides support in various forms including providing direct finance, staff capacity building, joint research opportunities, use of our office facilities and human resources.
Identification of Partners
K4C is always open to exploring new partnerships and recognises the great work being done by other organisations in the local areas and sectors within which we operate. We are committed to only supporting organisations which share the same core objectives and principles on ethics and sustainability. We focus our support on based on the nature of activities being undertaken, the effectiveness of interventions, the transparency and integrity of the partner organisation and their ability to achieve value for money. We will only partner with an organisation which demonstrates a real desire and commitment to the partnership and where expectations of each party are clear from the outset. K4C has several Memorandums of Understanding in place to govern partnership activities, expectations, responsibilities and decision making.
