Series of Workshops in Organisational Sustainability


3QA has teamed up with Berytech to offer a series of complimentary workshops on Navigating Sustainability in Third Sector Organisations (TSOs). The purpose of the workshops is to strengthen the capacities of TSOs to better navigate organisational development and seize the right opportunities moving forward into the year. 

With growing competition for funding and rising expectations from institutional donors for cost-effectiveness, transparency and value for money, 3QA has identified three key areas that would allow TSOs to develop the necessary internal systems and structures to enhance the trust of local, regional and international stakeholders.

Having solid fundraising strategies, effective Monitoring & Evaluation systems in addition to a solid and active board of directors are key constituents that would attract international support to your organisation.

The workshops will be offered by experts from the nonprofit and private sectors and will cover the following topics: Monitoring and Evaluation, Developing a Fundraising Strategy, and Good Governance.
