The Echo Group works with education institutions, NGOs, local governments and community members to increase capacity and opportunity in economic development and education.

The Echo Group believes that building relationships and clear communication are the keys to successful programs.

We are dedicated to enhancing the ability of educational institutions, NGOs, and other local organizations to support entrepreneurism and small business development while empowering individuals striving to improve their livelihoods and quality of life. Established in 1999, we are a veteran owned small business headquartered in Portland, Oregon, with representative offices in Ukraine and Namibia.

A unique aspect of our approach is that we ensure that all knowledge and skills introduced through our practical trainings and consultations are institutionalized within education institutions and other local partners. Additionally, our team typically mentors our local partners long after the direct assistance in completed so that their capacities continue to improve and impacts of the projects’ continue to “echo” long after the direct assistance in completed.

The Echo Group has a reputation for being an excellent partner for international development organizations wishing to compliment their current team with an organization having extensive experience in working with and improving educational institutions and local NGOs. Our team is extremely flexible and able to quickly deliver high value and cost-effective assistance through American experts and international professionals based in Eastern Europe, Russia, and Central Asia.
