Partnering to Achieve Economic Impact in HIV and AIDS Impacted Communities A Partnership Toolkit for Microenterprise Development
This toolkit was developed by the SEEP Practitioner Learning Program (PLP) in Building Alliances to Strengthen HIV and AIDS-Impacted Communities in sub-Saharan Africa (BASICS). It is mainly intended for well-established microfinance and enterprise development organizations (either non-governmental organizations (NGOs) or private consulting firms, national or international, to manage their partnerships with other organizations to provide more holistic services to HIV and AIDS-impacted communities. Partnerships with smaller NGOs and community-based organizations (CBO) that conduct programs at the grassroots level are common and may be especially challenging, so they receive special attention here. The toolkit has been designed to help organizations work through the process of establishing and maintaining a successful alliance that will allow each partner to contribute complementary skills, resources, knowledge, and experience that combine to better serve their clients and promote economic strengthening.
