About company
Программа по совместному управлению (ПСУ) , финансируемая Агентством США по международному развитию (USAID), – это пятилетний проект, поддерживающий эффективное сотрудничество между гражданским обществом, частным сектором и Правительством Кыргызской Республики. Мы работаем в трех взаимосвязанных сферах: содействие государственной поддержки социального заказа; наращивание потенциала гражданского общества через образование по некоммерческому управлению и оказание целенаправленной технической помощи и грантов на конкурсной основе, нацеленных на усиление организаций гражданского общества (ОГО). Опираясь на предыдущий опыт USAID и других доноров по поддержке ОГО Кыргызстана, ПСУ работает над усилением способности ОГО формировать государственную политику, поддерживать прозрачность деятельности правительства и расширять усилия по эдвокаси.
Программа по совместному управлению стала возможной благодаря безвозмездной поддержке американского народа, оказываемой через Агентство США по международному развитию (USAID) при дополнительном финансировании от Министерства международного развития Великобритании (DFID).
