It's About Local Partners Achieving Their Goals

Counterpart offers tools, resources and trainings to support organizations in achieving their goals. This kind of capacity building isn’t prescribed, it’s not cookie cutter and it’s not designed to take years of effort. It’s about being honest, building trust, identifying priorities and committing to action.

Building a New Future

We have become witness, over and over again, to citizens and organizations in some of poorest, most remote regions of the world, imagining a different future. Then, we help them accelerate their efforts to build that future.

Counterpart has also helped build the capacity of government agencies to be more accountable to citizens and to work in partnership to improve people’s lives. Only by taking a systems approach, working with civil society, government and the private sector, will development aims be met and sustained.
