Working to strengthen the civil society sector, one organisation and training at a time
Our Programming Areas
One of Veni Apwann’s strategic goals is to conduct research with partners, and we are seeking to understand factors that facilitate development of effective civil society organisations and to identify good practices relevant to the Caribbean context.
One area of our research deals with governance structures and processes in civil society organisations and the other seeks to determine the fiscal, legal and policy frameworks that enable the CSO sector to become more effective.
We plan to develop a research agenda and then work with research partners to execute the agenda. One of the ways we plan to share our results is in the form of case studies which we believe will be an effective way of sharing what we have learned.
Veni Apwann enthusiastically works to strengthen civil society by building the capacity of CSOs. We offer training workshops and in-house support via coaching or mentoring in the areas of:
managing human resources,
team building and
marketing and communications
We want civil society to have a clear vision for the sector, create shared goals and adopt best practices for good governance. Thus we engage stakeholders in the sector in discussions that will lead to the betterment of understanding of the civil society sector and their contribution to its development.
