Creating Stronger, More Resilient Communities
DevWorks’ mission is to support people around the world to pursue opportunities for equitable social and economic growth to create stronger, more resilient communities.
Unlocking Local Potential
We build capacity of governments for service delivery, train businesses to be market-oriented, and work with civil society groups to promote civic engagement.
Private Sector Engagement
We foster public-private partnerships (PPPs) between governments, the private sector, and civil society to enhance innovation and reach.
We facilitate pro-poor market systems change to provide sustainable access to goods, services, and livelihoods for all community members.
We deliver market-based solutions across five areas: agriculture, water, sanitation and hygiene, youth, governance, and natural resource management.
From households and smallholders to agribusinesses, traders and national policy makers, DevWorks strengthens market systems in the agricultural sector.
DevWorks works with all stakeholders to improve access to clean water and sanitation.
DevWorks builds civil society organizations’ capacity to effectively advocate for the interests of their constituencies and promote transparent and accountable local government.
Environment & Natural Resources
DevWorks works at the nexus of environmental conservation and economic development.
DevWorks helps youth find work, create businesses, and get involved in their communities.
