Capacity Building Enhances Women Helping Themselves

HER Fund has been giving small grants to marginalized women self-help organizations to run programs that allow them to support each other. Programs like hotline support, peer escort to government offices for seeking help, homevisiting, mutual support group and vocational skills learning, all these programs are organized by women members themselves to help other women who are going through the similar life challenges such as faing a divorce, being discriminated due to their race and background for surviving from abuse.  

In order to help these small organizations become more sustainable, organizational capacity building is essential , this include training on organizational management, strategic planning, accounting and fundraising knowledge. The members can then manage their organizations in a more structured and systematic way and be more accountable to the public. They can then run their work  independently and enhances them to help more women with similar background.
