YDN focused on NGOs institutional building program that designed to support NGOs, develop effective and well-managed organizations that make best use of their human and financial resources to maintain business sustainability.

With great focus on delivering successful strategies, emerging tools as well as specific skills and tactics necessary to build the capacity of NGOs, the program aims at empowering the organizations to better perform internally and towards the community they serve.

YDN worked to help many organisations that working on change and cohesion face organisational challenges related to their identity and governance, internal structure and funding.

In addition, YDN believe that most of NGOs actors need to have the ability to understand the operational context, interpret it and anticipate major changes in order to adapt and innovate when current practice fails to achieve intended results. So YDN worked to develop NGOs institutional building program and focused on the challenges which are essential for organisations to manage their change, growth and learning processes and effectively deliver on their work mission in a sustainable way.

During the period from 2009 to 2018, YDN conducted 93 training programs accourding to NGOs needs and gaps. (3,196) trainees (males and females) representing more than 300 organizations have benefited.
