Our activities are guided by the needs and conditions of the people and groups we work with, with the aim of strengthening their drive and self-empowerment.


Individual | Organisational | Institutional


SOIR-IM brings sustainable change on three levels:

Individual level [EMPOWERMENT] – we strengthen individuals and create opportunities for them.

Organisational level [MOBILISATION] – we help and make it easier for people to unite and set up organisations in order to find common solutions.

Institutional level [SOCIETAL CHANGE]– we work to change formal and informal rules that shape people’s behaviour and attitudes.

Approach: Our emphasis will be on social change, and women and young people will be the focus of our efforts.


Mainstreaming Areas

Gender: We ensures that all the projects are gender sensitive and address issues of inequality.  This is done by integrating or mainstreaming gender into all interventions carried out through our partners.

Environment and Climate/resilience: We ensure that environment concerns are properly mainstreamed in all of our intervention through systematic monitoring and documentation to analyze the impact of our work on environment.

Conflict Sensitivity: We ensures integration of conflict sensitivity in our work by doing proper analysis of what type of partner to collaborate with, type of interventions to support and at what level to address duty bearers, and further strengthen our partner’s capacities on their understanding of conflict sensitivity and analysis.


An ecosystem of partners

SOIR-IM works through and in solidarity with local CSO partners catalyzing profound social change towards equality and democracy. To create more efficient, scalable and sustainable societal change we aim to work with a wide range of partners such as; implementing partners, dialogue partners and leverage partners which accelerate scalability and impact. SOIR-IM’s role is to be a funder, a capacity builder as well as an enabler and a connector and catalyst for change and development in the partner ecosystem.
