2012 – 2013: “Knowledge and Skills” are as needed much as “Things”
Over the next two years, GoPhil deepens its relationships with eight specific programs across India, SE Asia and Africa providing access to health, education and empowerment. Listening closely to their priorities and assessing their needs, GoPhil realizes that in order to become stronger, their partner programs need assistance in building, healthy, sustainable organizations. They start to couple financial grants with capacity building—helping with strategic planning, budgeting, reporting, communications and evaluation. The donor base grows through word of mouth and enjoy the unique opportunity to travel and personally engage with the programs first-hand.
