Private sector partnerships

We recognise the power of partnership to advance children’s rights and equality for girls all over the world.

We build truly tailored partnerships to ensure we deliver mutually-beneficial partnerships with clear value and business benefits to our partners, as well as strengthening our programme work.

Our engagement with companies ranges from high level, multi-country strategic partnerships to supporting employee fundraising activities. With partnerships at the national, regional and global level, we understand what makes a strong and successful partnership.

How we work with companies

Long-term strategic partnerships

We have a track record of delivering long-term programmes which target the core interests of all parties and seek to make a genuine lasting change.

Customer and brand engagement

Engaging with us in a cause-related marketing or awareness campaign can deliver commercial benefits to your organisation as well as raise vital funds for our programme work

Employee engagement

We can engage, motivate and connect staff from across teams and locations through fundraising, volunteering and events; developing personal and professional skills, boosting moral and helping staff retention.

Advocacy and campaigns

We can join forces to influence and make a real impact, from engaging staff at a grass roots level with our campaigns, through to standing side by side on national and global stages to advocate for lasting sustainable change.

Corporate donations

You can support a specific programme, country or appeal by making a donation, sponsoring an event or by donating products or professional expertise.

Emergency support

You can provide live-saving support in the aftermath of a disaster. We also work with companies to help communities in disaster prone areas to become more resilient.
