Our Projects

Institutional Strengthening of Organizations Supporting Women’s Economic Participation in Colombia

As subcontractor to Tetra Tech on USAID/Colombia’s Generating Equity project, Connexus is using its Impact Strengthening Development (ISD®) Toolkit to assess and guide local Colombian organizations to become institutionally stronger and ready to manage direct USAID funding in the future. Connexus has conducted several human and institutional capacity assessments of civil society organizations that support women’s economic empowerment. To date, we have strengthened the capacity of two large national-level organizations and several small civil society organizations related to operational, financial, and administrative support. We have worked to develop customized manuals, including for operations and personnel management, anti-bribery and anti-corruption, purchasing, and budget monitoring.
