We work on issues with high potential for reducing poverty, and in which deeper trust, and coordinated, aligned action by diverse stakeholders provide opportunities for individuals and communities to thrive.
Improving livelihoods of smallholder farmers
Synergos fosters deeper trust and 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.
Public health, particularly the health of children, is central to reducing poverty and advancing national development goals. Synergos increases trust and coordination within government and between government, communities, and other stakeholders to deliver maternal and child health services.
Good nutrition is foundational to individual, national, and global development. Synergos improves nutrition, particularly among children, by enabling government and international agencies, businesses, NGOs, and communities, to better understand and trust one another, and thereby work together more effectively to reduce it.
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 discover and create larger economic and leadership roles in their societies.
Social entrepreneurs in the Arab World 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.
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, trusting, and strategic as grantmakers.
