Online capacity building for Global South nonprofits

Online capacity building for Global South nonprofits

Developed by leading academics and practitioners around the world, the University accelerates local impact with: • World-class, free, online courses that measurably improve organizational capacity; • Vibrant online communities enabling scalable knowledge sharing, crowd-sourcing of common problems, content generation, and more; and, • Access to capital opportunities in the form of unrestricted grants. Optimized for the Global South, the University platform is scalable to support millions of learners, developed for low and/or intermittent bandwidth, and locally relevant. By reimagining capacity building for the digital age, we are transforming the capacity of local organizations and contributing to a more enabling environment in which they can thrive.
