Building partnerships: Prework

Nooks are created when people or organisations belonging to a community reach out to us, interested in creating a Nook in their community.

With established partners Project DEFY define the problem statement, which usually deals with marginalisation or social exclusion that has resulted in decreased opportunities for the marginalised sect.

The inviting partner raises funds that will be necessary to create the Nook and to run it for at least one year (usually of the order of 15,000 USD). Project DEFY then sign an MoU, where they accept the role of assisting the host from end to end, in creating a Nook that would be independently run by the community users.
