The Civil Society Academy (CSA) started in 2014 as a pioneering initiative of Welthungerhilfe, one of the largest Development NGOs in Germany. Through genuine engagement with local actors and an excellent capacity and talent development, we strive to become a critical part of a new international eco-system that inspires civil society actors to fulfill their vision and mission. Since 2014, we have trained, coached, and supported more than 4000 people across Africa and Asia.
Our portfolio includes open trainings on relevant topics for individuals working in civil society, tailormade services for civil society organisations who want to receive customized training, mentoring, coaching, and process facilitation support. In addition, we also organise and facilitate networking events such as the leadership forum, or civil society dialogues. In the past years, we have successfully run three innovation bootcamps, in-person as well as virtual, to support creative teams develop their ideas into tangible concepts that are ready for scale. We prefer working with high-impact organisations with a passion for social justice.
Our global team is diverse and together we believe in Social Justice, Empathy, Creativity, Collaboration, Top Quality, and Ownership.
