I'm a partner in a philanthropy advising practice. We have a foundation client that is trying to build capacity in a team of Congolese leaders.
The Congolese have some cultural issues as well as minimal training in financial management for their development projects. I was hoping to use the Tool Box in French as the DRC is a francophone country. I will instead translate what I need...but do lmk when it is available in French and I'll pass it along.

Open Disclosure Foundation is a registered NPO in Johannesburg. ODF was founded in 2002 by a survivor of sexual violence. The organisation offers free psychosocial support to the victims and survivors of gender based violence. For the past five 12 years the Organisation has helped six thousand victims and survivors. Our dream is to reach many more victims as much as we can, but the availability of resources becomes a limiting factor.

Who I am Use of CTB
I'm a teacher and researcher in local (community) development. I'm asked by local authorities to manage a community development project in a 100 000 inhabitants mountainous area.
I'm discovering Ctb, and I'm very surprised to note its adequacy in a country, an area so different of the USA.
I wish to try the model in Kabylie, a mountainous area not far from Algiers.
Ctb is very rich, and, perhaps, difficult to manage. For the moment I'm just learning it and need time and work for a project which begins in january 2015;
what kind of help may I expect? Are you interested by the project?
Kind regards . Ahmed
