organisations de base

Hi, I'm helping a charity with a translation but am unsure on the exact meaning of 'organisations de base', in the following context:

Les capacités des organisations de base (féminines, mixtes et masculines) actives dans le domaine...

I was wondering if this might be translated as 'grassroots organisations'? The text refers to projects in Africa.

Many thanks for any help.

    Sounds like a translation from German ('Basisorganisation'), which means just what patiocat suggested: "grassroots organisation". See here.
