Corporate Partnerships Award
The Corporate Partnerships Award recognises the importance of NGOs working effectively with corporate companies to deliver their mission, recognising that business expertise and assets can play a vital role in international development.
As NGOs face ever-changing obstacles in delivering their work on the ground, new partnerships with private sector companies can support NGOs to widen their reach and impact.
