Since its origins working with communities in the South Pacific over 50 years ago, Counterpart International has been a global leader of civil society strengthening (CSS). Today, it offers project design, implementation, and technical assistance that focuses on organizational capacity and performance, civic advocacy, and collective action. This framework and the inclusive and equitable activities which flow from it are effective at local and national levels, in fragile and stable political contexts, and across development sectors. Counterpart co-creates solutions with community and government stakeholders — engaging in the broad civic space to
launch networks and coalitions while providing transformational support that enhances CSOs’ technical capacity, financial self-reliance, and mission impact.
