Our Partners


A number of our activities are made possible through the support of local businesses. Partnerships are key to our capacity to promote change. Amongst other things, partnership can lead to:

  • greater impact of our work: through partners we can mobilize more resources, influence different sectors of public opinion, increase our reach, and work with new networks and groups (our partners’ partners);

  • stronger organisations: building and strengthening organisations through solid relationships, trust and good communication;

  • increased legitimacy: more use of local knowledge, projects appropriate to the context, including a diversity of voices, and a greater local ownership of work;

  • greater effectiveness: partnerships provide opportunities to learn from each other and improve the way we work;

  • more negotiating power with donors, local government and powerful stakeholders;

  • greater participation of people living in poverty
