Eurasia Foundation of Central Asia EFCA Charity Profile
The Eurasia Foundation of Central Asia (EFCA) was created in 2005 to better meet the needs of Eurasia Foundationís local partners in Central Asia and to devolve management responsibilities to local staff. Based in Almaty, Bishkek, Dushanbe and Osh, EFCA staff manage a broad portfolio of programs, developing local organizations via technical assistance and grants. Eurasia Foundation (EF) and EFCA have invested more than $40 million in Central Asia to support local initiatives in community development, private enterprise, education and public administration.
A public-private partnership, EFCA is governed by an international board of trustees and is supported by the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID), as well as governments, foundations, corporations, intergovernmental organizations, universities and individuals.
Continuing the work of EF, which has been active in the region since 1993, EFCA staff have extensive experience in project design, implementation and oversight. EFCA develops sustainable local institutions by assessing local needs and identifying motivated civic actors, mobilizing resources among public and private stakeholders and providing intensive capacity-building training to partner organizations. EFCA partner organizations include community non-profit organizations, associations, universities and research institutions, among others. EFCA works closely with national, regional and local governments in all of the countries where it operates.
