Capacity Building

GRW provides capacity building to our NGO partners and their colleagues in the legal system to more effectively respond to violence against women and girls. We rely on them to tell us what their needs are and we apply our expertise gained by decades of experience with legal and systemic reform to assist them in reaching their goals. Examples of capacity building include helping to implement the Duluth Model of Coordinated Community Response (CCR), working with local partners to develop protocols to monitor systems’ response to VAWG, and helping a partner develop a methodology for court monitoring and improved judicial response.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Goal 1:
Increase the number of nations and communities around the world that are committed to building a response to violence against women that prevents this abuse, protects victims and holds abusers accountable by growing long-term partner relationships and affirmatively seeking new partners to solidify sustainable legal and social systems.

Goal 2:
Build a financially sound organization that maintains sufficient (as a percent of total revenue) unrestricted revenues to take advantage of mission driven opportunities, maintain individual and private foundation gift revenue and builds capacity for endowment income.

Goal 3:
Establish our leadership voice as the national and international brand and the source for proven legal and community solutions and international human rights standards in the movement to end violence against women as a tool of oppression (civil and human rights violation).

Goal 4:
Build a sustainable business model that includes exploration of earned income ventures, strategic alliances including sponsorships, partnerships, acquisitions and mergers, to expand GRW’s global impact.

Strategies of Goal 1 as noted above:
1. Strengthen partner networks by enhancing our staffing and technological capabilities to increase quality and quantity of contact with current partners and expand our reach to develop new partnerships and diversify our local, national and international footprint.
2. Expand and refine planning and implementing legislation and regulations, training and curriculum, including Coordinated Community Response (CCR), and monitoring products. Reflecting GRW’s unique global position, Link these all to international and regional human rights law.
3. Strengthen delivery system, which is comprised of staff and volunteers, to ensure that all GRW work is conducted with proven expertise, professionalism and reflecting the diversity of roles within the justice and social systems.
