Our clients

We are excited to collaborate with African civil society organisations that approach us because they want support to improve or change how they are working. We consider them our clients because it is to them that we are primarily accountable, regardless of how our work with them is financed.

We do not use the word ‘partner’ because we feel it is overused and describes a wide range of relationships, including many that are unequal. We use the word ‘client’ because we want to be clear that our relationship with organisations is professional and based on mutual respect.

Well Grounded views ‘civil society organisations’ as any groupings, formal or informal, that have purpose, people and process. They can include, among others, non-governmental organisations, community-based organisations, networks, platforms, coalitions and social movements.
