Who we work with

GREAT works with business, government, research and community organisations to bring about changes that will provide long-lasting benefits in the target communities, particularly for ethnic minority women.

Currently, the Program is engaging with 49 different partners across 52 separate partnership agreements. In Lao Cai, there are 30 partners with 19 in Son La, and three partners implementing projects in both provinces. Out of this total, there are 21 business partners, 16 government agencies and the remainder research agencies, training institutions, local and international NGOs, and multilateral organisations.

GREAT’s private sector partnerships span from large corporations that are engaging women in their supply chains to smaller cooperatives run by ethnic minority women.

The GREAT Program also works very closely with the Lao Cai and Son La provincial governments and related agencies as well as development partners.
