Collaboration is the cornerstone of the Academy. We work with a wide range of partners across the humanitarian sector and beyond; from technology companies to universities; local communities to multinational corporations and from local authorities to national governments, drawing on the knowledge, expertise and resources of a range of organisations to ensure the best solutions are found for those most in need.

Equity and Empowerment

We ensure that our values are aligned and that our partnership is built around an understanding and respect for differences in opinion and culture.

Accountability and Transparency

We believe that open communication along with clear and rational decision making is the key to a successful partnership.
