GEESE’s core body brings diverse professional experiences. We have a strong background to offer multi-sector development projects and have institutionalized policies, systems and procedures at par with international donor standards. Our 6-year progress is a strong evidence of successful project implementation in multiple sectors. Education, Democracy, Food Security & Livelihood, SBDRM & CBDRM, Youth Empowerment, Child/Human Rights, Staff Development, Emergency and Relief, Vocational Trainings for Increasing Employability, Coordination and Linkage Development have been the focused themes. Through these projects, VDMCs, UDMCs, School Safety Committee (SSC), District electoral Reforms Groups (DERGs), Youth Volunteer Forums (YVFs), Citizens’ Voter Groups (CVGs), and Vigilance Committee (VC), were formed, trained and supported for their vital contribution towards community-driven achievements and sustainability. We take pride for receiving positive response from multiple stakeholders, e.g. children, youth and communities – the rights holders and government and non-government officials – the duty bearers and making successful attempts in a short span of time. We are pleased to share that on the basis of sound internal control, compliance and quality service delivery, GEESE has been selected as Cooperative Potential Partner by USAID, UNWFP, UNICEF and UNDP.
