News on our organisational development
C4R moves towards a network model which allows us to support local youth and their communities – get rid of the #RedTape in the development sector. This is a strategy we put in place years ago but living in war zones made it impossible to think beyond daily crises (sexual abuse, no money, bombings) and getting the job done. There was no time to develop networks. Now between London and Berlin, we have the opportunity to reflect and think and develop the Charity.
As part of this, we have a set up an office in Berlin and have launched an informal education programme that supports trainers and their projects directly – called the Capoeira Changemakers Programme. So, we continue to support trainers based across the Middle East, now in Europe and beyond.
Development: C4R is currently reviewing its Awards Programme and investing in infrastructure including its communications policy. Additionally, the communications policy is part of training on media outreach, stressing the importance of child protection and media ethics.
Technology: C4R founders are also proud to launch FrontlineAid (Germany) WebApp – to supports C4R’s onboarding, monitoring and evaluation, task management and more. This tool allows capoeira projects to be monitored remotely and give efficient hands-on and $$ support to the work local Changemakers do.
