We work to serve our herd

We believe in walking the walk of servant leadership - serving the needs of stakeholders, sharing knowledge and power, putting the needs of others first, and helping people develop and perform as highly as possible. We see this as a smart and pragmatic approach to fulfilling our mission and achieving our strategic goals.

We see the local environmental non-profit organizations in developing countries to whom we provide capacity building training and direct funding as partners, not just grantees. We have found in our 10+ years experience working with them that we learn just as much from them as they do from us, and we receive just as much value in our working relationship as they do.

We also work with other international donors that support the development of local environmental non-profit organizations in developing countries. ECF provided co-financing for a Global Environment Facility Small Grants Program grant to Centrul National de Mediu, the organization ECF supports in Moldova, and ECF visited and is exploring program and funding opportunities with non-profit organizations in South Africa and Namibia that are or have been funded by GEF SGP.

As you can see, ECF works in various countries, and we have a simple principle for determining where we work.
