ForumCiv – Quality Support Unit

About the organization

ForumCiv is a politically and religiously unaffiliated Swedish member-based civil society organisation working on a global scale. We have around 180 member organisations. We have offices in Sweden, Colombia, Liberia, Kenya, Cambodia and Lithuania. Our offices in Colombia, Kenya and Lithuania have regional coverage.

Together with our members and partners we work with human and civil rights and facilitate democratic participation around the globe. Our work centres on enabling people to organise to claim their rights and take control of their lives. Because only then can democracy grow, resources be distributed more fairly, and poverty be reduced.

Our vision is a just and sustainable world where all people have the power to effect change. Our mission is to strengthen marginalised people around the world who organise to claim their rights and advocate for changes that contribute to a just and sustainable world.

ForumCiv applies a rights-based approach and strengthens civil society as an actor for change, we integrate Gender Equality, Environmental and Climate Justice and Conflict Sensitivity and Do No Harm into our work. We depart from the partners and their capacity to provide adequate support through: Capacity Development, Community Mobilization and Multistakeholder Engagement, Grant Administration and Advocacy.
