The Toolbox is not only a toolkit and a framework of activities to advance and deepen practice - they are made for actors facilitating organizational development from within organizations, initiatives and teams and in external support roles in civil society. It is based on shared values that relate to a working culture and a vision of overall social development. Core values are self-organization, participatory and inclusive process, continuous learning & self-development and collaboration on eye level.
The Toolbox explained in a nutshell.
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. Topics covered are such as internal communication & decisions, collective impact, financial model or roles & responsibilities.
The Toolbox is accesible and shared on a free basis both online and by printed materials. Content and approach are continuously co-developed in various languages and regional versions. The Toolbox is available in English, French, Greek and Turkish and will soon be available in Arabic, Russian and Ukrainian.
