 Details about Expertise / Competences / Technologies
HIGGS is a non-profit organization which aims to reinforce NGOs in Greece through educational and supportive programs. It targets new NGOs and people who wish to create NGOs from the very beginning. It offers capacity building support to small and medium NGOs mainly through training and educational initiatives. Currently it operates two capacity-building programs, the Accelerator and the Incubator, designed for the Greek NGO ecosystem assisting them in their growth and development.

The “Accelerator” is a capacity-building program, lasting for 4 months, designed for small and medium NGOs that require support in developing a project proposal and in implementing projects for which they have received funding. Hitherto, 40 Greek NGOs have participated in this program.

The “Incubator” is a capacity-building program, lasting for up to 24 months, directed to NGOs that have just set up or to groups of people that have an idea for creating a new NGO. It provides capacity building support and guidance related to organizational, financial and operational issues experienced by Greek organizations. 12 NGOs are currently participating in this program.

More specifically, its capacity building program offers tailored-made training on the following thematic areas, possibly related to this project: Volunteer Management, Marketing Techniques, Digital Footprint-Social Media, Funding Sources, Project Life Cycle, Designing a Project, Proposal Writing, Project Implementation, Project Monitoring Techniques and Funding from International Donors-European Funds etc. Its core members have been involved in the training of more than 270 NGOs across Greece.

HIGGS further focuses on the enhancement of knowledge in the Greek NGO sector by taking part in research, establishing a knowledge repository on civil society and disseminating best practices. In this framework, HIGGS operates as “hub” among the NGOs operating all over Greece, as well as for the various stakeholders that would like to connect with the Greek organizations.
