Partner Feedback

“We are definitely not where we were before we started the partnership. We’ve been able to set better templates for growth in areas of organizational structure and capacity, strategic planning and resource mobilization. In the next 3 years, our hope of being a stronger organization is definitely brighter than before we started the partnership.”

Idris Ola, WOCAPSS-Africa Executive Director
