Both the private sector and not-for-profits have an important role to play in supporting Governments to meet the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals. With Foundations and social enterprises taking an increasingly commercial approach to their philanthropic work we are seeing environmental, social, and governance considerations come to the fore.
We are partnering with a leading Africa focused Foundation to help build their team on the Continent. Backed by an EM hedge fund the Foundation is carrying out philanthropic programmes as well as setting up social enterprises. Mandates have included a COO, Head of Social Enterprises, Head of HR and Chief Research and Evaluation Officer.
