Our Presence

 Since our founding in 2011 we’ve created a global network, both of our own active investment teams and our portfolio network countries.

Our Partners

Here are the organisations that make our work possible. A number of individual philanthropists also support our work; they don’t have their own logos, but without them we wouldn’t be able to do the work we do.
