Save the Children Sweden
The purpose of this 2007 study was to document and assess Save the Children Sweden’s experiences from building organisational capacity of partner organisations with the intention to learn from experiences, share good practices within the organisation and provide recommendations for how to improve Save the Children Sweden’s strategies and approaches.
The starting point for the project was to undertake an assessment of practises and experiences in SCS’s regional and country offices from building organisational capacity in partner organisations.
It was revealed that support to organisational capacity development (OCD) provided by Save the Children Sweden’s (SCS) regional and country offices mainly focused on providing support to child rights programming and supporting networking. To a much lesser extent the partner organisations are regularly supported in their internal functioning. The latter type of support is almost only provided in deeper organisational development (OD) projects with a few partner organisations. There is a wide gap between the standard support and the OD projects.
