Where We Work


Partnering with local organizations - formal and informal - to build inclusive, sustainable communities in which their people thrive

For nearly 50 years, Counterpart International - a global development organization - has been forging partnerships with communities to invest in food security and nutrition, economic development and building effective governance and institutions.

Counterpart has done groundbreaking work in more than 65 nations worldwide. Today we are widely regarded as an international development pioneer and leader – known best for our unique approach to partnership and capacity building, a commitment to learning and continuous improvement, and a reputation as a responsible steward of funder resources.

In all we do, our ultimate goal is to have enduring impact– empowering every community we serve with the ability to create lasting change and build true self-reliance.

The relationship between a donor and a nonprofit is built on trust, transparency and integrity. Counterpart emphasizes these in its daily practices around the globe. Read how values & ethics guide our work >
