2016 underscored that social entrepreneurship is truly a “force multiplier” — a definition coined by USAID to celebrate the power of public-private partnerships. Together with you, our clients and partners across global development organisations, government ministries and private companies, we are working to unlock human and economic potential for populations in need.
During the past year, BroadReach has continued to innovate and champion data-driven solutions, sharing new ideas with colleagues around the globe. Our core belief remains constant: It is necessary to bring together evidence-based decision-making when forming policies and programmes with tools that build the capacity of teams to deliver effective services. Only then will we together create meaningful, lasting change.
