Institutions and partnerships

Institutions and partnerships

Our mission of eliminating extreme poverty is ambitious and cannot be achieved without partnership and collaboration. That’s why we’re proud to partner with a range of local, national and global groups who share our mission. This allows us to respond quickly in the event of an emergency and to expand the reach and scope of our development programmes.

National governments

In most of our countries of operation, national governments are responsible for providing basic services such as health and education. We work closely with government departments to support their development plans which are aligned with our mission. This approach improves access to basic services and helps improve the quality of the services.

In Kenya, we delivered the CMAM SURGE progamme in partnership with government partners. We supported the district help office to identify when there would be spikes in demand for services and develop plans to deal with that increased demand.

Global partnerships

We recognise that we will not end poverty on our own. By combining our resources with like-minded organisations, we stand a better chance of eliminating extreme poverty. We have created and nurtured strategic partnerships with a range of organisations that share our mission and values. These partnerships take many forms.
