Synergos wants to help create a world that is just, peaceful and sustainable, where people everywhere are empowered, aware of their common humanity and able to realize their full potential.


Synergos helps solve the complex problems of poverty and inequality by promoting and supporting collaborations among business, government, civil society, and marginalized communities.
