Accompaniment

In addition to funding, Mama Cash provides accompaniment to her grantees. In her accompaniment programme, Mama Cash works with her grantees to:

  • reflect on their areas of strength and weakness
  • strategise how to increase their influence, power, and the scale of their work
  • make decisions about what Mama Cash and her grantee can do to make this happen
