Our Partner community shares a vision of a world based on dignity for all people.

We always say that changing the way the world tackles poverty “will take all of us,” and our Partner community is living proof. They come from over 20 countries and include business leaders, entrepreneurs, artists, and activists who embody the spirit of generosity and have always dared to dream different.
