Criteria used to determine countries of priority for CBM include:
Within each country, CBM works closely with a network of local, trusted organizations that support CBM’s holistic approach.
These partners are audited and reviewed regularly to ensure that their program delivery meets high quality standards, they are running effectively to bring sustainable change to the poorest communities, and to make sure donor funds are clearly accounted for and used for their intended purpose. CBM works closely with its partners to plan, implement and monitor programs, assess the level of support required by a partner, provide expert advice and support capacities to achieve sustainable development and long-term impact.
