Rules of thumb for a successful collaboration

From 2011 till 2015, six Dutch NGO’s have worked together with their partners in 10 countries to promote Equal Rights and Opportunities for Girls and Young Women. The alliance members were Child Helpline International (CHI), Defence for Children-ECPAT Netherlands (DCI-ECPAT), Free Press Unlimited (FPU), International Child Development Initiatives (ICDI), Plan Netherlands (who was the lead applicant), and Women Win (WW). The members started exploring and designing the program from 2009 onwards. The Girl Power Alliance (GPA) was officially established in 2011.
