Partnering for change
We believe that close collaborations between organizations and individuals from different sectors are key in creating sustainable social change.
Reach for Change’s programs are delivered in close collaboration with partners from the corporate, social and public sector. Our partnerships not only generate funding for programs, they also bring invaluable resources such as business expertise, network and media exposure. We therefore always strive to develop strong and trusting relationships with our partners, maximizing the impact of each collaboration.
In 2014, 1,111 co-workers from our partner organizations actively engaged in Reach for Change’s work. In a survey conducted with key executives in the partner organizations, 71 percent stated being very or extremely happy with the collaboration with Reach for Change.
One of the new partnerships that was initiated in 2014 is a collaboration with Kinnevik and H&M Conscious Foundation to improve the lives of women and girls in Ethiopia. The result of the collaboration is a program, launching in 2015, to help social entrepreneurs, working with women and youth to, develop more sustainable revenue streams. Other examples of programs that we launched jointly with partners in 2014 are Bayport Teacher Innovation Competition , Tigo Digital Changemakers, MTG Game Changers and Prototype Change (with Sida).
