2014 has been a significant year for Stars Foundation:
After emerging from a period of reflection on our programmes, progress and role in the sector, we are now poised to begin an organisational transition to improve the reach, delivery and impact of our work to meet our ambitious goals.
After all, we have committed to reach more than 20 million underserved children by 2020.
In order to do that, Stars is in the process of launching and piloting a number of new initiatives engaging with the public and private sectors, academia, peer foundations and others across civil society.
Stars will always hold at its core a belief in the value of locally-led development to deliver positive and sustainable change for children.
What will be different is a new emphasis on cross-sector engagement in order to accelerate that change. Across all our efforts, we are making a shift toward more collaboration; convening stakeholders to leverage expertise, resource, insight and reach to do more, and to do better.
We will work as a broker to build partnerships, networks and coalitions that will allow us to make a more meaningful contribution to the global development project, and to the lives of millions of children around the world.
2014 has been an important year of growth and transition for Stars. But it is just the beginning.
By working in new and more collaborative ways, we hope to amplify and accelerate the cause more widely than we could have ever done on our own.
