“CTAOP walks with us where WE are –
not where THEY are.”
~ CTAOP Program Partner
We support transformative, locally-led change by partnering with community-based organizations that support young people, their sexual and reproductive health and rights, and gender-based violence prevention.
The long-term partnerships we develop are based on mutual respect and trust. This approach plays an integral role in our work, as does the power of sharing stories, convening, and a commitment to continuous learning. Since those closest to the issues are the ones who are best suited to create transformative and sustainable change, we support community catalysts. Our support is responsive, driven by what our Partners say are the greatest needs.
We seek relationships with organizations across sectors – private, public, and nonprofit – to leverage our strength in numbers and mobilize more resources to support local solutions.
“Real lasting change comes from the communities themselves.”
