TOOLBOX

for collective action and organizational development

This is a Toolkit for capacity building. It aims to support actors who are facilitating organizational development in initiatives, civil society organizations or informal groups who want to develop their working structures to act, collaborate and create impact in times of complexity and uncertainty.

It is made to work with a team of an organization, initiative, or an informal group and gives the possibility to explore and work on a real capacity building need of your organization or group.

There are a million different challenges organizations may face. This Toolbox focuses on 13 selected themes, which deal with some of the most frequent challenges of civil society organizations in Turkey and Greece. In order to prioritize which theme(s) to work on, your team can use the Toolbox to find your specific capacity building need.

There are different ways to work with this Toolbox. Use what you need! You can implement a tailor-made workshop to address and solve your capacity building need. These workshops are called “Paths”. Each Path outlines a recommended sequence of activities, discussions, and exercises to guide you through a fruitful development process, all of which can be adjusted to your team’s specific needs. Most Paths assume that you will invest a day to work on a theme. You can also create your own Path from the Toolbox Library or try out individual methods one at a time.

TOOLBOX PRINCIPLES
Do it as a team: Everybody has knowledge, and can contribute.
Keep it pragmatic: Use what you need – online or offline any time and any place you want.
Reach out for support if needed: We are a community of practitioners whom you can approach.
