Counterpart International

About Counterpart International

Counterpart International partners with local organizations - formal and informal - to build inclusive, sustainable communities in which people thrive.

Established in 1965, Counterpart - 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.

Our mission reflects our longstanding commitment to building the capacity of individuals and communities to control their own future. We are proud of our past innovations in locally-led development and aspire to build on them.

Though Counterpart's projects are diverse, they share a common objective: improving the lives of those in need.
