We carefully research the nonprofit organizations and social enterprises with which we want to engage. Once we have ensured that their goals are aligned with ours, and that they make a difference, we strive to develop effective relationships to improve the lives of our end beneficiaries and enable them to find their own way to thrive.
Our strategy is three-fold:
Make immediate impact by transforming the lives of children and adults with curable disabilities (blindness, upper and lower limb loss, cleft lip and palate, and clubfoot). We do this by supporting reputable organizations whose people work every day to care for those with these conditions;
Expand access to healthcare and education and build local capacity through the same organizations by providing training to people on the ground to refine their skills, so that they can reach even more people, and ultimately make a better living for themselves;
Support organizations with strong track records of changing systems at government levels with a view to empowering single countries to tackle their own most critical problems.
We realize that systemic changes are the ones that generate the biggest impact and the most radical transformation, but they are long-term challenges.
For this reason, we balance multi-year commitments with shorter-term immediate funding to address pressing needs.
