Our way of working

People seated at tables writing and talkingWe work in such a manner so not just to fill a knowledge or skill gap but also to effectively allow our clients to learn from our experience and transfer our knowledge so sustainable results can be maintained after any particular project is complete.

To support us in our work, we use a range of frameworks and models to support good practice, and have experience of tools such as participatory appraisal, participative consultation, and planning and evaluation tools.

We work with stakeholders to develop evaluation frameworks using a theory of change approach and undertake external evaluations to feed into learning.

WSA is committed to capacity building and strengthening community development. Please do get in touch with us around work that you are doing – we’re interested in sharing good practice and learning from other initiatives as well as offering support and intervention around our broad scope of community development, participation, networking, training and evaluation skills.
