TRI Impact Platform

Our ground action and strategy are anchored by (i) Programme Guidance Council, comprising all NGOs working directly with communities, providing core leadership to the community engagement and result progress (ii) Sector Councils, comprising the thematic resource organizations that shape and lead the thematic strategies.

The Council comprises partner frontline NGOs ready to share accountability and responsibility, and participate in joint learning, decision-making and collaborative action. The Council is responsible for governing inter-organization interactions and managing trans-organizational engagement risks.
