Memorandum of Understanding
A Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) is a document that is used as an agreement between two parties, usually when one party is the service provider and the other one the beneficiary of the service. A MoU is less formal than a written contract, but more formal than a handshake. It is an important document when you work as a partner in any way, for example if you run your programme at another organisation, use a company's space to host a fundraising event or support another organisation using your curriculum or technology .
This toolkit is useful when your organisation wants to:
- establish a partnership for service provision or joint implementation of a project.

- offer your programme or services to another entity.
