Partner spotlight - Network for Active Citizens
As part of our strategy, our work is primarily based on partnerships.
This is motivated by our belief that although we are experienced and experts around what we do, many things and places, the communities we work with and the activists/agents therein have better context knowledge, and grounded understanding of their communities’ aspirations, resource levels, ways of engagement, mobilization, and so on.
These stand better positioned to work in their local contexts.
