Update from BCI

On July 1, 2019 Binda Consulting International turned 5 years old! We are growing with thriving partnerships, an expanded client-base, new staff and dedicated consultants around the world.  We are grateful to all those who have contributed to our success.  As we look forward to many more years, we wanted to share a few updates with you. 

New Toolkit for CSOs and NGOs
We recently released a new organisational capacity toolkit for non-profits and civil society organisations.  The toolkit is a result of a series of trainings and mentoring sessions BCI conducted for the Ante Raeda programme (implemented by the Institute for War and Peace Reporting, with funding from the UK Government). While the toolkit complements training videos developed for the program (available on our Youtube channel), it can guide any nascent civil society or community-based organisation on fundamental organisational and programme conditions. The toolkit, available in Arabic or English, can be downloaded here.  

The Foundation for Global Human Dignity
At BCI, we're not all about business growth.  As former NGO workers, we want to continue supporting worthy projects and contribute to tackling the issues that keep us all awake at night.  To that end, BCI recently founded a not-for-profit foundation to support marginalised communities and focus on issues related to human and democratic rights.  The Foundation for Global Human Dignity is still a work in progress, so we'll keep everyone updated as it, too, grows.

BCI's Blog
We continue to invite our friends and partners to contribute thoughts and opinions on our website.
Philip Eliason updated us on Australia's elections, BCI's Eszter Kósa shared a personal perspective to mark World Refugee Day and Sonja Lokar chastised Slovenia's Constitutional Court and politicians for missing an opportunity to fix gender discrimination in political parties.

We don't bombard subscribers with emails - quite frankly, we're so busy we don't often have time to communicate all we want to share!  We do a better job of updating our social media, so click on the icons below to follow our team on your preferred social media channel!
