Our Team & Partners

DEDICATED EXPERTS WITH DEEP UNDERSTANDING

Country Partners

Our Country Partners are the foundation of our interventions. Our Country partners have outstanding knowledge about the local context, network and capability to implement change. Our partners often have amazing social enterprising ideas and the skills and will to implement them.

We work with four sectors of Country partners. Our ActionChampions (AC) have deep understanding of vulnerable settlement. They are change makers and have leader positions with an aim to improve livelihood among the vulnerable. The ActionChampions may be living in and be in charge of cooperations in vulnerable settlements. The ActionChampions and their cooperations are supported by our Target partners (TP)s. Our Target partners benefit from a stronger infrastructure and have access to computer, internet and electricity. The Target partners themselves benefit from coaching from our Programme management Partners (PP)s who have links to the academic sector. Our Programme management Partners also host or manage our Innovation centres. Our Country Strategic partners (SP) include Governmental institutions, local authorities, community and religious leaders, private and academic sector as well as independent financial auditors and lawyers.
