Enabling environment

The context in which African civil society organisations (CSOs) operate is not particularly enabling: political space is restrictive; funding is limited and funding models are limiting; and external actors continue to influence how much African CSOs can set their own agenda for change. If the broader context in which our clients work limits their ability to do what they want to do, then the impact of our organisation development support will in turn be limited. Therefore, Well Grounded undertakes work aimed at influencing this broader context.
