Our work in society
Our work helps people and institutions contribute to a more inclusive, open and prosperous world to bring about positive change in their societies.
Through our programmes developed in partnership with local and international organisations we address issues such as social inclusion, accountability, entrepreneurship and active citizenship. Using our deep understanding of local contexts and the trust earned through long-standing commitment we enable young people, communities and governments to make positive change for the benefit of all.
