Catholic Relief Services (CRS) is a leader in the NGO community and serves as a model of how to support impoverished people overseas. Over the past several years the way in which development efforts are implemented has undergone a radical transformation, in particular through an increased use of public-private partnerships that seek to capture the skills, resources, and experiences of the private sector abroad. CRS has gone through a significant journey over the past 10 years regarding its engagement with the business community, specifically through its partnerships with Jollibee Group Foundation, an organization that increases Filipino access to basic community services, and Green Mountain Coffee Roasters, a leader in specialty coffee and coffee makers.
In this conference, panelists from CRS, Green Mountain Coffee Roasters, and Jollibee Group Foundation will discuss how to leverage supply chains to achieve sustainable, equitable, and inclusive growth; how NGOs play a critical role in helping integrate global, regional, and local businesses into development efforts; and the opportunities and challenges for scaling up NGO efforts.
