Our mission of eliminating extreme poverty cannot be achieved without partnership and collaboration. That is why we are proud to partner with a range of local, national and global groups who share our vision.
Civil society groups
We work with civil society groups to implement projects and programmes. Local groups have a deep understanding of their people and surroundings. Working with them helps ensure the success and sustainability of our programmes.
In Somalia, we partner with Youth Link to teach young people about good hygiene and the importance of drinking clean water to avoid disease. We also support the management of the Youth Link programmes, which helps to build both structure and accountability in the organisation.
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 'Community-based Management of Acute Malnutrition' (CMAM Surge Approach) alongside government partners to help health systems more effectively deliver services for children with acute malnutrition. We supported the district help office to identify when there would be spikes in demand for services and developed plans to deal with that increased demand.
Global strategic partnerships
We have created and nurtured strategic partnerships with a range of organisations that share our mission and values. These partnerships take many forms.
We are a proud member of Alliance2015, a network of eight European charities that work together to fight poverty. We work together to deliver aid and we campaign together at an EU level. By joining forces, we are better equipped to tackle the challenges of our work and use our combined influence to shape opinion in Europe.
We partner with research and academic institutions such as Trinity College Dublin and the Institute for Development Studies to help us to test our programming and produce robust evidence of what works. This helps us build on our successes and scale up where appropriate.
