Whose capacity are we developing?

Given its mandate and its unique role of nurturing CSOs in Tanzania , FCS capacity development services as focused towards developing capacities of different development actors including:-
Individuals: Such as CSO leaders, fieldworker’s, community members including women and youth, policy makers and other government officials etc. We recognise that change happens as a result of individual as well as collective action. Similar, changes at the personal levels are key to organisational and societal development. Usually capacity building objectives at this level are framed around skills development training to staff and members of CSOs.
Organisations: FCS recognises that many of organizational needs lies deeper than just lack of resources and skills. As such we apply an in-depth organisational wide process of fostering organizational change. The process is conducted in manner that ownership of change process is firmly placed in the hand of the organizations concerned.
Network organizations, movements and coalitions: Capacity building support at this levels focuses on particular subgroups of organisations, and thus there this more common ground amongst the sectors. The objective is to strengthen capacities in relation to specific areas of common interest in relation to the makeup of the subgroup. Strong emphasis is placed on the development of relational capacities, with a view to strengthen the collective voice and profile of that particular subset of civil actors
