We aim to
Equip people with the skills and resources they need to generate an income and meet their basic needs. Our projects also support economic growth and begin to address broader societal inequalities, which can enhance human welfare, opportunities and skills particularly for the most vulnerable: women, children and young people and disadvantaged communities.
We operate by establishing long-term relationships with high impact local Non-Governmental Organisations (NGOs) staffed by local people with requisite skills and commitment. By supporting organisations that know the context and culture in which they are working, and are thus well placed to achieve sustainable results in their communities, these partnerships benefit from the strong understanding of pressing social issues, what is already being done to address them and where the gaps and critical points of leverage are.
Where we operate
Countries are selected on the basis of Ashmore’s local presence, existing networks and knowledge, and the existence of a thriving civil sector.
Priority countries are reviewed regularly and currently comprise Colombia, India, Indonesia, Peru.
