This paper discusses:

  1. Activities conducted by MWA to develop trust and partnership across a group of NGOs.
  2. Methods used to engage in collective impact.
  3. Lessons learned about partnership development in an alliance. 

MWA convened and led a short-term, 2017-2019, programme titled, “Bridge Program,” funded by the Conrad N. Hilton Foundation (Hilton Foundation). This work involved the MWA secretariat serving as the hub, IRC WASH providing technical support, and six WASH NGOs including CARE, Catholic Relief Services, Food for the Hungry, Helvetas, WaterAid, and World Vision providing the on-the-ground implementation work and collaborative long-term planning with district governments. This paper focuses exclusively on the development of partnerships and use of the collective impact framework across a group of NGOs working on this joint programme.
