Counterpart International’s 50th Anniversary Celebration

#50FORWARD is Counterpart's year-long celebration commemorating 50 years of helping people build better lives and more durable futures all around the world. By training emerging leaders, driving inclusion, accelerating partnerships and building problem-solving skills that become embedded in the fabric of a community, we join with our local partners to overcome today’s challenges, while building for tomorrow.

#50FORWARD is as much about our history as it is about the innovation and commitment we will bring to the next 50 years.

Our History
Fifty Years of Innovation
In 1965, the organization that would later become Counterpart International officially opened its doors for business. Fifty years later, our work is still grounded in our respect for the courage and determination of people to drive their own destinies.
