Corporate Partnerships Award

The Corporate Partnerships Award recognises the importance of NGOs working effectively with corporate companies to deliver their aim and mission, recognising that business expertise and assets play a vital role for NGOs. 

As NGOs face ever-changing obstacles in delivering their work on the ground, we are experiencing new partnerships being forged in addition to the traditional NGO/donor connections.
