Our Work

USAID Bangladesh Smiling Sun Franchise Program

Under the USAID Bangladesh Smiling Sun Franchise Program, Panagora worked hand-in-hand with Capacity Building Services Group of Bangladesh to prepare local NGOs for donor awards. We supported 26 NGOs in carrying out facilitated self-assessments, then developed a capacity building plan with applied training in governance, organizational and project management, human resources/performance management, administrative and financial management systems, and project communications. Twelve NGOs – triple the target – put in place the policies, systems, and procedures required to host direct awards. (Chemonics International, prime contractor)
