We do what we do because of strong partnerships that we have established over the years with different organisations and across many levels. These have included NGOs, research bodies, and academia, government and private sector partners. Our partnerships have enriched our work across key sectors, particularly, health, education, WASH and livelihoods, helping us deliver a portfolio of successful contracts, grants and research projects over the last 30 years. AAH-I is always open to cultivating partnerships and alliances with organisations and individual supporters that promise to make a difference in the lives of the communities we serve.
