Initiatives can save time and resources by working through intra and trans-sectoral partnerships with other initiatives in the same communities or field. This overlap can boost the potential of all initiatives involved.
By sharing inputs such as services and know-how , Initiatives can fill the gaps that they themselves cannot cover: In the case of community development initiatives, this can help to expand the communities’ access to an integral variety of social programs that, supporting one another, become more relevant to each of their members. For other kind of development initiatives, partnerships can enable the problems to be tackled with a more integral intervention, sparing the initiative from bearing all of the responsibilities on their resolution (decentralizing).
Moreover, through parity/matching funds schemes, donors and foundations partner with like-minded initiatives to multiply the effect of their contributions.
