our partners

We realise that we can’t single-handedly solve our county’s most pressing challenges but have a greater chance of success if we work together with like-minded organisations that connect strongly on our purpose. We also don’t just fund programmes, we co-create them. This means we work closely with our expert Implementation Partners to find viable solutions, which they then activate on the ground. They are: Catalyx Foundation, Jet Education Services, Sportstec, The Unlimited Child, B&M Analysts and Creative Madness.
