Capable Partners Program (CAP)
A Leader with Associates (LWA) Cooperative Agreement, the Capapcble Partners Program (CAP) worked with Missions and other operating units to design and implement interventions that aligned with USAID Forward's focus on strengthening local capacity, effectiveness and sustainability. Over ten years (2003-2013), Leader Award activities were funded by USAID/Washington and 23 Associate Awards were executed by Missions and operating units related to one or more of CAP's four programmatic objectives:
- Strengthening operational and technical capacity of local NGOs, networks and ISOs;
- Building and supporting linkages among local organizations (NGOs, coops, networks, governments and businesses);
- Increasing capacity of NGOs, networks and ISOs to advocate for key policies or programs; and
- Disseminating tested innovations, best practices and lessons learned via traditional and new media.
CAP offered extensive experience in all develpoment sectors and in various methodologies, including advocacy, monitoring and evaluation, training, grants management, NGO-government partnerships, and the use of information technologies for development. CAP's participatory approaches worked to strengthen local actors and the institutions that are ultimately responsible for transforming communities.
