WDN-U focuses on the following areas to build its institutional capacity:

  • Identifying needs of staff and its board to align empowerment with identified needs;
  • Building the capacity of its board and staff to be effective in fulfilling their roles and obligations;
  • Developing internal systems that improve the organization’s edge and ability to sustain itself, compete and to adhere to professional and acceptable national and international standards expected of not-for profit organizations;
