Stronger together

Working closely with local communities, our work creates a ripple effect on employment, household incomes, supply chain purchases and beyond.

Our Approach to Impact Management

In 2019, the Foundation implemented its impact management practices across all strategic initiatives, undertook post-program assessments, captured gender-disaggregated data and conducted its first mid-year impact review. The Foundation also supported corporate partners to adopt good practices in impact management for corporate community investments. The Foundation continues to identify how we can better define, measure and strengthen the impact of our work.
