Our partners are cooperatives, microfinance institutions and social businesses dedicated to delivering high-impact products and services for vulnerable women, men and families who have been trapped in poverty with limited access to opportunities for prosperity. Our impact investments help our partners reach more people in need, expand their critical services, become more sustainable within their communities, and remain dedicated to empowering underserved families to improve their lives.
Global Partnerships unlocks opportunity by providing impoverished people with:
- Economic growth through working capital loans, business education and access to markets
- Clean energy from solar lights and cookstoves
- Improved heath from preventive health education, quality sanitation, and affordable primary care clinics
- Digital study materials to improve access to education
Global Partnerships has dedicated staff located in three offices, including Seattle, WA, USA; Managua, Nicaragua and Nairobi, Kenya.
