Where we work
Our annual report
Concern works with some of the poorest and most vulnerable people in 25 of the world’s most fragile states.
Our goal is to end extreme poverty and we tackle this by working with local partners and communities to develop lasting solutions in health and nutrition; water, sanitation and hygiene; livelihoods; education; gender equality and emergency response. We rely on funding to enable us to continue our work and we have been fortunate to build relationships with a range of Trusts and Foundations who share our vision of a world free from poverty.
Some of Concern’s partnerships with Trusts and Foundations:
The innocent foundation
innocent drinks is a business that strives for true sustainability, with the goal of making it easy for people to do themselves and others some good. From innocent’s creation in 1999, it has dedicated 10% of its profits to charity. The innocent foundation was established in 2004 and is funded by the employees, shareholders and company of innocent drinks. The foundations aims to turn brave, bold ideas into real solutions that help the world’s hungry. The foundation finds and funds visionary people and organisations all over the world who are tackling hunger in simple, smart and sometimes radical ways. Its goals are to stop children from dying from hunger and to help the poorest families feed themselves, which align brilliantly with Concern’s work.
Concern Worldwide has been working in partnership with the innocent foundation since 2019 to address malnutrition in the arid and semi-arid areas of Northern Kenya, where the effects of drought-related food insecurity are manifested in high maternal and child malnutrition. Together, we’ve first piloted Family MUAC, a project that trained mothers - instead of Community Health Volunteers only - to screen their own children for acute malnutrition, and if necessary refer them for treatment. Now, building on the success of the first pilot, we want to go further. During the Covid-19 pandemic, the Kenyan Government has adopted Family MUAC as an approach to ensure continuity of nutrition services, but they require strong evidence of its potential effectiveness and cost-effectiveness to integrate Family MUAC into the counties’ ongoing activities and responsibilities. The new project aims to generate such a mix of operational evidence, including cost-effectiveness, and practical recommendations to inform the Government of Kenya’s scale-up strategy beyond Covid-19, as well as contribute to the global evidence base, and ultimately strengthen the Family MUAC approach worldwide.
