Well Grounded is a non-profit, non-governmental organisation registered in the United Kingdom that provides organisation development support to civil society groups in Africa so that they have real and sustainable impacts on natural resource governance and community rights. They also promote change by connecting organisations with each other to build a strong civil society voice. Well Grounded works primarily in forest countries, more specifically in Cameroon, Central African Republic, Democratic Republic of Congo, Gabon, Liberia and Republic of Congo.
Well Grounded’s clients are African civil society organisations who approach us because they want support to improve or change how they are working. They believe that change in countries such as those of the Congo Basin won’t take place until people living in the country and dependent on natural resources for their livelihoods have a say in the management and decision making concerning those resources. There are local organisations, both formal and informal, that are supporting communities to develop their own initiatives and to have a voice, and other organisations working at a national level advocating for change. Well Grounded aims to support these organisations to become more effective to increase their impact. Their main areas of focus are: identity and strategy; leadership and management; and building a more diverse and inclusive civil society.
Well Grounded provides organisation development by offering diagnosis, analysis and evaluation, followed by facilitation, coaching and workshops to address priorities that they and their clients identify together. They aim to provide a unique response through their work with each organisation, based on its particular needs and priorities. Well Grounded’s services are designed to support clients to reflect, learn and take conscious action based on their own vision, mission and values. The ultimate goal is to support the delivery of high-quality work and sustainable impact.See more
