Advancing community-level change in East Africa.
Global Partners has remained committed to impactful, sustainable, locally-led initiatives for over 40 years. We believe community leadership is the key to responsible and sustainable development and that local people have the right to drive change in their schools and communities.
Since our inception, Global Partners projects have benefited more than 3 million people in East Africa.
These numbers represent our impact since we implemented a new M&E system in 2014.

Climate Resilient and Environmentally Responsible Development
At Global Partners, we recognize that the climate is changing and that our partners in East Africa will be affected. We are committed to helping communities adapt, prepare, and engage with this reality. As part of a community-driven project selection process, local groups map how climate change affects their land and infrastructure, and this informs the project they ultimately choose. Our technical staff are trained in sustainable resource use and climate change mitigation and adaptation methods so that projects can make communities more resilient against the impacts of climate change whenever possible.
Help us further our mission.
