Are you eager to contribute to shaping the future of international development?

Organisational Learning Intern

How can organisations in international development learn from their past activities and build on their experiences? How can international development organisations navigate increasingly complex challenges more effectively and efficiently? How can we achieve more positive impact towards sustainable development by learning from what we already know?

If these questions spark your curiosity, then you fit right into Strhive.

Who we are?

At Strhive, we believe in the creation of more impact through learning and collaboration. We support organisations to build on their past experiences and leverage their organisational memory to work more efficiently and effectively.

Organisations approach us with questions about how they can learn from their projects or how they can manage the knowledge within the organisation. We work with key actors in international development to improve learning, ways of working and ultimately, impact. Strhive works in 3 pillars:

  • Propel – The software tool for organisational learning
  • Advisory – integrating learning and creating cultures for learning in organisations
