Program Design


We aim to integrate sustainable best practices, local partnerships, and innovative approaches to development for increased impact

Program Design

We work closely with our partners to develop programming that builds on existing sustainable initiatives, incorporates successful indigenous solutions and capacities, invites public-private partnerships, and integrates international best practices to tackle key development issues in the region. We view program design as both the starting point and constant compass of our MEL work, and aim to continuously adapt design to evolving contexts.

Our services in program design range from support in capturing planning for upcoming bids, to full program design inclusive of M&E plans, budgets, recruitment and staffing, and technical proposals. As part of our program development services, we build capacity of program development managers and teams to expand their donor base, identify potential international partners for new programming, and enable the program development team to proactively seek funding opportunities as and when they become available. We also train program design teams to effectively do this work.

We have successfully secured over $100 million in funding for clients from various donors in sectors including education, democracy and governance, child rights, monitoring and evaluation, refugee response, tourism, and gender, with donors such as USAID, EU and UN.
