Capacity building

WISE builds the knowledge and skills of organisations and aspiring changemakers to increase the impact of their own community-based projects. By designing customised training curricula with an authentic learning environment, complemented by dedicated mentoring, we maximise benefit to the organisations and individuals we work with, and thus, to communities.

WISE has developed and delivered training workshops and programs in Indonesia, Cambodia and Singapore. We are also developing new projects and are actively seeking opportunities to train and/or mentor non-profit organisations, social enterprises and individual changemakers.

Training needs analysis

WISE helps organisations identify and prioritise the training needs that will build the competencies of their organisation and members most effectively. We recently conducted a training needs analysis for Cambodian partners Neakpoan Organization for Development (NOD) and Community Training Organization for Development (CTOD).
