Partnership is at the heart of what ChildHope does. We work hand in hand with local charities that understand the issues. That means we don’t have the expense of running our own overseas offices and this reduces the risk of imposing ‘outsider’ solutions on local issues.
We currently work with 17 partners in 10 countries’. We offer training, support and mentoring, working with local organisations to secure and manage funding and develop learning and reporting systems.
And it works. We put local organisations in the driving seat. We help build strong, sustainable and independent organisations that can be catalysts for lasting change in their communities.
How does it work?
We listen and are responsive. Working with our local partners we tailor projects to ensure they meet children’s real needs and go beyond quick-fixes.
At the start of each project, after talking to the children and communities, we set up interventions that will enable us to deliver effective projects and understand the impact of our work on children’s lives. Each project visit enables us to monitor the work and support our partners.
Our partners share our commitment to working alongside children to bring about changes to their lives. We know that development can be a long process and we commit to long-term partnership journeys to ensure that change comes from the community itself. And we share learning between our partners to ensure the best practice and the most effective programmes around the world.
“It is a supportive relationship characterised by mutual trust, confidence, cooperation and transparency.” East Africa Partner
“The quality of work by staff has greatly improved in terms of presentation, clarity, objectivity and implementation. This has been as a result of continued sharing of practical experiences and best practices by ChildHope” Africa Partner
ChildHope’s approach relies first and foremost on local partnerships.
Our partners are committed to child rights and understand the context of children’s lives. They share our values and deliver programmes that change the lives of children for the better.
