Uganda Partner Update

We are thrilled to see one of our partner organizations, who is facilitating access to healthcare in remote areas of Uganda, flourishing since our partnership!

Building on our extensive collaboration to strengthen both their Programs and Operations, the organization has expanded considerably and thoughtfully: scaling from 200 to 12,000 people served every month, winning global awards for innovation and securing new funding, expanding into new regions and adapting our collaborative tools and resources to suit new contexts and challenges – and all just since we completed our partnership in 2016!

THIS is the ultimate fulfillment of eA’s overall goal: to help partners maximize impact!
