Eden McCallum welcomes Solidaridad into our NGO Partnership

We are delighted to have signed an MoU with Solidaridad officially welcoming the charity to our NGO Partnership, enabling us to support them with pro bono consulting support. Solidaridad is the 4th charity to join our NGO Partnership alongside ImpetusThe Royal Foundation, and Virgin Unite. The pro bono support we provide these charities is made possible by our incredibly talented pool of independent consultants, who volunteer their time and skills to support on numerous projects. “Giving back through pro bono work for NGOs is an important part of the contribution we as a firm want to make to a sustainable future, and we are delighted to have formalised this partnership with Solidaridad, which we have been building for the last year” – Joris van Osselaer, Client Partner, Eden McCallum.

Solidaridad works in over 40 countries worldwide with more than 1200 staff to create fair and sustainable supply chains. Inspired by 50 years of solidarity with under-resourced producer communities, it enables farmers, miners and workers to earn a decent income, shape their own future, and produce in balance with nature. Heske Verburg, Managing Director of Solidaridad commented “We are very pleased to become a partner of Eden McCallum by joining their pro bono consulting programme. We have already had a very good experience with a number of pilot assignments in 2023 that showed the positive impact of Eden McCallum’s support. As an NGO we have limited budgets but a very important mission to achieve; that is exactly why we are so happy with the strategic support of Eden McCallum and their commitment to drive positive impact together.” To find out more information about Soildaridad, please click here.

Since the launch of Eden McCallum’s NGO Partnership in 2008, our analysts and independent consultants have delivered nearly 200 pro bono projects. We have supported more than 80 charities with strategy, organisation design and operational improvement advice, helping to develop their capabilities, improve the effectiveness of their frontline programmes, and better deliver on their missions. We continue to be inspired by the positive impact our consultants and colleagues can have, and they in turn value the opportunity to work on challenging projects which drive social and environmental impact, and where success is measured by the lives and landscapes touched and changed. “We are very much looking forward to working with Solidaridad to drive further positive impact together – they are an organisation with ambitious and important social and environmental goals that we fully support, and they have a pragmatic, ‘can do’ mentality and values that are well aligned with ours” – Hilary Corroon, Director of Eden McCallum’s NGO Partnership.
