INTERLACING COMMUNITIES, PARTNERS ANDFRIENDS TO FORM A GLOBAL FABRIC.
Counterpart and its local allies come together in partnership to overcome sharedchallenges and weave a fabric strong enough to achieve lasting results.In September 2012, Counterpart revised its mission statement tofocus unerringly on our purpose. Our new mission statement reads: Wepartner with local organizations – formal and informal – to build inclusive,sustainable communities in which their people thrive. Around the world, we are currently partnering with 2,600 localorganizations of all types that have a similar vision of strong, vibrantcommunities. By working with Counterpart, these organizations canindependently deliver – and expand – the value they bring to their communities.How has Counterpart created its robust track record in organizationalcapacity building? The trick is to begin – and then take – every step of the journey with our local partners rather than ahead of our partners. This framematters. We don’t solve a local organization’s problems. Instead, we buildlocal leaders and organizations who solve their own problems, with our temporary assistance.Some of our greatest satisfaction comes when our local partners turntheir focus to a challenge well outside the scope of their partnership withCounterpart, independently identifying a need, envisioning a solution, andthen executing a plan that meets their community’s needs. Years after 
OUR MISSION... STRONG PARTNERSHIPS,STRONG COMMUNITIES
our programs end, we hear stories that inevitably start with “We used theapproach we learned from you to solve…”This report tells six stories of how we are strengthening localorganizations for this leadership role today – in six of our twenty-threecountries of operation.First, you will read of stronger women’s cooperatives in Guatemala,which have transformed the economic opportunities for women in anentire region. Next you will journey to Senegal to meet local non-protswho are building the Koranic school infrastructure. Your next stop will bein a remote village in Mauritania that faces ever-worsening drought, whereyou will nd a creative village-level response that is taking hold across thecountry. In Yemen, you will see the power of legislation to strengthen localcitizen organizations. Your nal stops with communities in Armenia and theDominican Republic will round out your journey.We at Counterpart are fortunate to be at the center of a global movementto build the capacity of local organizations so that they can effectively leadtheir own development process. Thanks to support from our U.S. government,foundation and individual supporters, we are making a lasting difference in thelives touched by our 2,600 local partners, today and in the future.
