Promoting Local Responder Capacity and Partnership (PLRCAP) Initiative

Local and National responders are everyday providing lifesaving assistance to the most vulnerable of Nigeria. Their access, commitment and local knowledge ensure effective response, acceptance and reach. Reviews have shown, however, that a large majority of Nigerian non-governmental organizations working in humanitarian response require focused capacity support to deliver effectively and at scale.

PLRCAP (Promoting Local Responder Capacity and Partnership) is piloting an integrated learning approach to build the sustainability and programming reach of local and national responders.

Building on best practices from the humanitarian, development and private sectors, including social entrepreneurs, an integrated learning, mentorship and twinning approach will enable Nigerian NGOs, their leaders and networks to review strategic plans, construct sustainable “business models”, identify development needs, build partnerships, and explore diversification of their revenue streams.

PLRCAP is an initiative of Nigeria INGO Forum and is jointly funded by Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation (SDC) and the Office of US Foreign Disaster Assistance (OFDA).
