Selection and Partnership Building
AHIP identified partners, and the identified organizations were screened based on a set of criteria. NGOs/CBOs/FBOs were selected from amongst several. This process helped in strengthening each organization technically in its distinct areas of peculiarities or weaknesses as partners. A few skills building and planning trainings were taken up by consultants at 5 different trainings and 5 different supportive technical assistance support within the 3 year period. Each organization was assissted to develop a strategic plan after a strategic planning training.
This is on-going as technical support is continually provided
