POINT was established as NGO by a group of Diaspora humanitarian experts. As an NGO, the co-founders of POINT realized the crucial gaps between providing aids and the need for building the resilience of communities. We believe at POINT that the best solutions to support the people in crisis should be by a quick transformation from rapid response to resilience method, as this approach within humanitarian operations is crucial to the first efforts of a community to recover, rise again, and start to use their capacity, starting from education and livelihood at the first stages, ending by early recovery and rehabilitation at later stages.
POINT has figured out the gaps that prevent the civil societies to play a greater role in improving the response to the crises by building their capacity internally using the available resources in the affected communities. For that, POINT works in two wide domains in parallel, the first one is providing empowerment support to the affected communities from the crisis, and the second one is developing the capacity of Local actors. This is to strengthen their qualifications, voices, increase their impact and bring about the development of a diverse, inclusive and independent civil society.
