WORKS WITH BOTH ENDS ON
Both ENDS assisted IRV in finding donor organisations and strengthening their network with other local, national and international organisations and with potential partners. With the support of Both ENDS, IRV works on environmental conservation, with activities focused on strengthening the capacity and increasing awareness of the forest depended community in the Sundarban of Bangladesh, for example.
ADDED VALUE OF PARTNERSHIP
In the words of IRV: "In 2001, as we just started our journey in the development sector as activists, we met Both ENDS. Since then, we have been keeping regular communication and have learned from them about development discourses, international relations, organisational development, research procedures, networking and capacity building. Around 2008 we had a difficult time and were struggling with our organization. Luckily enough Both ENDS visited us several times and inspired us by sharing their experiences, providing guidelines and advising us about organisational development. In 2008 we started a new voyage with Initiative for Right View (IRV). We think and realise that we get a lot from Both ENDS. In the initial stage we got support with fundraising and also for Human Resource Development, for example for capacity and skill development through the JWH initiative."
IRV is a right based research, networking and advocacy organisation, working in the southwest coastal region of Bangladesh.
