Capacity Building


The Center for Capacity Development at JSI and World Education
Organizational capacity development is at the core of World Education’s model and has helped improve the ability of local organizations and government services to meet the needs of their stakeholders for over 60 years.

World Education's approach is both participatory and facilitative. We look at all aspects of organizational functioning, from mission and governance to management, planning, financial administration, monitoring and evaluation, human resources, and external relations.

Participatory assessments identify baselines and targets at each level of an organization, a process that encourages discussion, critical thinking, and buy-in for change. This then leads to a series of inputs targeted to improve organizational functioning that can be anything from training, mentoring, exchange visits, participation in World Education’s innovative civil society academies, or other individual- or organizational-level activities.
