The Foundation is active in a set of countries that together reflect global diversity in economic, geographical and cultural terms. This diversity is intentional. We believe that by working in dissimilar contexts, we can help test the global relevance of ideas and approaches and are also well positioned to share what we learn across regions.
In this spirit, we also have a global programme through which we engage strategic partnerships that span multiple countries in some cases extending beyond our core set of countries. The purpose of this programme is to tap into centres of excellence in line with our strategic priorities and to seize emerging opportunities to spread what we are learning to help serve children in places where we do not plan to have a long-term active engagement.
