Private sector partnerships

Working together for a fairer future for all.

Are you ready to be a change maker?

Partnering with Christian Aid is about more that just corporate social responsibility; it is about joining a movement of purpose-driven businesses on a mission for a more fair and prosperous world.

We partner with action focused organisations who want to see real impact and social return for their corporate giving.  

 

Businesses, from the largest to the smallest, have a critical part to play in ending the scandal of poverty. Enterprise is the ladder out of poverty for most people. People living in poverty need the private sector to thrive. We seek partnership with business – big, medium and small.
