The Foundation organizes a series of training sessions, conferences and networking activities yearly. Open to the non-profit sector as a whole, these workshops allows the emergence of a dynamic and committed community of practice. 

Through Philagora, the Foundation offers a different way of supporting organizations whose training budgets are often limited or non-existent. The popularity and growing reputation of this program confirm the appetite of the non-profit sector for learning, capacity development and networking.

The curriculum evolves constantly: we favour tailor-made workshops, in collaboration with experienced trainers who are sensitive to our particular challenges. These training sessions are also highly valued networking opportunities for organizations: they meet peers, exchange good practices, find mentors, and even can sow the seeds for joint projects.
