In September 2015,the 193 Member States of the United Nations adopted 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development,including the SDGs.This set of universal goals calls on all nations to end poverty,protect the planet and ensure prosperity for all.
These 17 interrelated goals represent an ambitious Agenda and provide a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to end poverty, combat climate change and fight injustice and inequality. By applying Innovation, Resources and Expertise, we will pursue the business opportunities inherent in building a greener, more equitable and inclusive society.
As an investment firm, ThinkBig Africa believes it is important for us to take a leading role in contributing to the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Private sector leadership in general is essential both to transition away from practices that undermine the goals’ achievement, and to proactively create solutions that solve existing challenges.
Our healthcare strategy ,for example,adopts a partnership capital approach to build healthcare ecosystems that deliver sustainable, affordable and high quality preventative and curative services to mid and low income communities in Africa.
At ThinkBig Africa we believe that working to promote environmental and social sustainability is good business practice, from both a risk and opportunity perspective. We analyze the potential impacts of our business activities and take action to reduce environmental risk and impact. We also look for opportunities to make sustainable investments and develop products and services with positive environmental and social impacts.
Forming strategic partnerships is central to the Group’s work. Through community programs across Africa we have partnered with government bodies, International Organizations, Non-Governmental Organizations, civil society agencies, business Corporations, youth focused organizations, research and academic institutions, as well as private philanthropists who strongly share our commitment to addressing critical challenges that have derailed the African continent: poverty,development and Africa’s marginalization internationally.
All our investors as well as strategic partners believe in the power of multistakeholder interaction to drive positive change and work closely with our Team to help direct the impact of our initiatives.All these partnerships are essential to solving critical social problems in the World.
They provide input to the group’s policies at national, regional, continental and global levels, ensuring that the beneficiaries of our projects derive the greatest possible development impact.
At ThinkBig Africa, we build and maintain partnerships to strengthen communities. We strive to build meaningful collaborations and partnerships that are good for the African people and their posterity in alignment with our VISION.
We start with people getting involved and using the tools and the right information we give them to make an impact. By doing so, we are helping to demonstrate that community outreach programs which are developed and managed by a community for a community make a striking impact.
Our Strategic Partners make a tangible impact on issues affecting the African continent and society by contributing to better policy-making, informing business decisions, sharing best practices and engaging stakeholders beyond viable objectives.
