Capacity Development

Capacity development is at the core of our work at JSI. Whether in the health or education sector, our teams aim to develop stronger systems, enabling organizations and individuals to maximize impact and to help fulfill their mission.

Through an emphasis on trust, collaboration, and partnership, JSI, with our partner, World Education, approach capacity development holistically and build strong relationships with our partners to promote accountability, transparency, and local ownership. By combining technical support, organizational strengthening, and the application of tools, assessments, and training, we strive for improved health and educational outcomes.

Our partners include governments, nongovernmental organizations, community-based organizations, private sector firms, and communities.
