Do you lead communications for an international NGO? Do you have teams across Africa? If so, we need your help!

At Eden Stanley we have just started an exciting project with BRAC International to review their communications capacity across countries in East and West Africa.

With an ambitious new strategy BRAC International are keen to ensure they have the right capabilities and resources in place to deliver their new plans in the countries where they want change to happen.

As part of this work we will be running a global benchmarking exercise to see how others in the development sector run their communications work in Africa. And we’re looking for organisations to get involved.

All we need is an hour of your time for an interview with our Senior Consultant and in return we will share the benchmarking results with you. If you’re keen to get involved please email

Inspired by its 50 years of work in Bangladesh, BRAC International innovates programmes across Asia and Africa that integrate social development with market-based solutions in partnership with local communities. Globally, BRAC International partners with over 100 million people living with inequality and poverty to create opportunities to realise human potential – including directly operating in Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Ghana, Liberia, Myanmar, the Philippines, Rwanda, Sierra Leone, South Sudan, Tanzania, and Uganda.

This project will help develop their strategic communications further, enabling them to have even greater impact. Our capacity evaluation framework will be central to this project. This tool looks at six focal areas of communications work from skills, resources and strategic thinking through to evaluation and learning. We’ll use this to really dig deep and understand where the team are now, and where they need to be to reach their ambitious goals.

So, if this sounds interesting, and if you lead communications for an international NGO and have teams across Africa and want to get involved, please get in touch.

We look forward to hearing from you.
