Improving livelihoods of smallholder farmers
Synergos promotes collaboration among government, businesses, investors, NGOs, and farmers’ organizations to improve the lives of smallholder farmers, their families and communities. By supporting the transformation of agricultural systems, we are contributing to reducing hunger and poverty and creating economic opportunities for women and youth.
Strengthening health systems
Public health, particularly the health of children, is central to reducing poverty and advancing national development goals. Synergos increases collaboration within government and between government, communities, and other stakeholders to deliver maternal and child health services.
Fighting malnutrition in children
Good nutrition is foundational to individual, national, and global development. Synergos improves nutrition, particularly among children, by promoting collaboration among government and international agencies, businesses, NGOs, and communities.
Improving opportunities for the youth bulge
In much of the developing world, job growth is not meeting the demand from growing populations of young people. Our work on social entrepreneurship in the Arab World and agriculture in Africa are creating new opportunities for young people to play larger economic and leadership roles in their societies.
Strengthening innovators in a region of change
Social entrepreneurs in the Middle East and North Africa combine innovation and business skills to meet pressing needs. Synergos supports the region’s largest network of social entrepreneurs with capacity building and others forms of support.
Improving giving for lasting change
Through the Global Philanthropists Circle, we help philanthropists around the world increase the impact of their giving. And we are helping foundations, businesses, and others be more collaborative, strategic, and effective as grantmakers.
