Scale Accelerator: Women’s Empowerment is specifically aimed at locally-led NGOs and coalitions of organisations working in Southern Africa and delivering solutions that address issues around women’s empowerment. This means solutions that support women and girls to enhance their power, voice, skills and opportunities in the economy, at home, and in their community.
Based on our unique scaling methodology which has been used to support over 300 organisations, this programme has been running since 2015 and has helped over 50 ambitious UK NGOs at the frontline of addressing key societal issues have participated. As a result, many have increased their reach and impact, expanded their solution to several locations, and gained funding for their next phase of growth.
Through this programme, Spring Impact aims to build a movement around scaling impact, where leaders and teams across the wider NGO sector are equipped with the frameworks, tools, and networks needed to continue their own scaling journey and inspire the journeys of others into the future.
Commenting on the launch of the programme, Mohamed Osman, Spring Impact CEO said:
“There are fantastic NGOs across Southern Africa which work day in and day out to support women and girls to enhance their power, skills, and opportunities. Their impact is invaluable. Now imagine how many more lives they could change for the better if only they delivered their work at scale.
Oftentimes, NGOs have limited capacity to respond to the demand they’re facing and can feel stuck in an ongoing cycle of delivering short-term projects, without the space and support to work out how to be more impactful and reach more people.
Partnering with NGOs to scale the impact of their solutions will ensure their indispensable work can benefit more women and girls, and ultimately lead us towards a fairer, better, and equal future for all. This is why we’re thrilled to be able to offer this fully-funded consultancy programme, and help ambitious leaders identify how to turn their ambitions for greater impact into reality.”
Applications for the programme are now open and will need to be received by 12 December, 11:59pm CAT/SAST. The programme is free of cost for the organisations selected to take part.
