STARS Impact Partnerships is a programme connecting carefully sourced and credible local NGOs working in Africa, the Middle East, Asia and Pacific regions with local practical support from companies.
Through a pilot programme, STARS Foundation and three multinational companies are helping local NGOs reaching the final stages of the Awards evaluation process to address challenges that are vital to the success of their mission. Practical support is primarily being provided for IT, marketing and communications, human resources, measurement and evaluation, fundraising and strategy related issues.
By matching and facilitating company-NGO partnerships, STARS is helping companies to systematically identify and partner with well-run local organisations alongside our own programme staff and partners in collaborative settings.
This enables companies to enhance the scope and reach of their community investment and employee engagement programmes, as well as encouraging learning and innovation. In so doing, we aim to foster local links with the private sector on behalf of our partner NGOs, as we believe this can make a significant contribution to their resilience, enabling them to reach more disadvantaged children and young people.
The key advantages of involvement for companies are:
Following the evaluation of the pilot, our intention is to offer the opportunity of participation to more multinational and local leadership companies each year.
