Our Question : Why?


We know the solutions, so why haven't the issues of today's world been solved? 

Why haven't we stopped the spread of HIV?
Why are children still malnourished?
Why do so many women still die in childbirth?

It isn't until agendas are aligned and resources all working in a unified way that we can tackle the issues at stake.

What we do

PEPAL BRINGS TOGETHER NGOS AND GLOBAL CORPORATIONS TO FIND SIMPLE SOLUTIONS TO BIG SOCIAL ISSUES.

Pepal has worked with leading NGOs in Africa, Asia and Eastern Europe together with multi-national businesses, creating projects which have received funding from the United Nations Population Fund and Comic Relief. This work has reached millions of people, improving the lives of thousands through better service delivery in 270 rural health facilities in Uganda, developing a business model to provide eye care to 20,000 in Orissa, India, and increasing blood supplies in Northern Uganda, saving over 5,000 lives.

Connect

We connect businesses and NGOs. We work to understand each side, identify the relevant social issue and show how both can work together to achieve mutual benefit. This is the foundation for sustainable change. 

Train 

We create leaders capable of driving change. Pepal designs and delivers executive training programmes that take place in a developing country or emerging market. Leaders from business, NGO and government come together to apply their leadership skills in an unfamiliar context and develop new ideas to solve the social issue at stake. 

Implement & Scale

We support the implementation of ideas that have come from the executive training process. We help transform these ideas into concrete and scalable projects.

 

What we've achieved

Some of our latest projects

UGANDA: 
CARING TOGETHER

Baylor Uganda & Janssen Pharmaceutica

Caring Together aims to improve the quality of health services delivered to some of the most remote populations in Rwenzori and Eastern regions, by strengthening leadership, health worker motivation and accountability.

In 2015 the team trained 70 district mentors reaching 250 health facilities and over 2000 health workers. 

Caring Together was awarded Gold Medal at the Johnson & Johnson Trust Awards 2015

Before the training we didn’t meet as a staff team, now we meet every month to solve our problems and the patients know to come earlier to the facility because we will be there to care for them.
— Alfred Oteko, Clinical Officer & District Mentor

Tanzania:
cervical cancer

Pharmaceutical company & leading NGO, MDH

The 'NJIA' initiative combines leadership development with a project to combat cervical cancer in north west Tanzania. 

Cervical cancer is the leading cause of death among women in Tanzania. 90% of these deaths could be avoided if screening and treatment were made available. 

The programme set up by Group HR in an international pharmaceutical company is developing their senior managers as well as leaders in the Tanzanian healthcare system.

It helped us truly ‘get’ our mission to reach patients not just as an intellectual proposition or as a business goal, but in a very intense emotional way and translate that into our daily efforts.
— Carol, Director of Human Resources and NJIA participant

Myanmar:
HIV Care

Alliance Myanmar & multi-national

As Myanmar opens up with the new democratically elected government, the project aims to ensure that HIV prevention, care and support services are delivered to vulnerable populations such as sex workers, injecting drug users and men who have sex with men. 

Launched in 2015, the first innovation workshop in Yangon brings together representatives from a multi-national company, the Government of Myanmar, leading Burmese NGOs, private GPs and vulnerable groups living with HIV.

Our vision is to develop a “blue-print” for delivering quality, cost-effective and affordable services to those infected and affected by HIV, Hep C and TB, a model which can be scaled across Myanmar and the region.
— Dr. Alvaro Bermejo, Executive Director International HIV/AIDS Alliance

This is the most powerful executive programme that I have ever been on...Having a concrete project to work on meant that we were really making a difference, which felt fantastic
— Alison Hall, Marketing Manager, IBM
After the second day of working in a cross-cultural team, I was really confronted with myself and wondered how I could contribute constructively. Two days later I realized that I had changed my way of listening and planning.
— Wendy Sanderson, Janssen Infectious Diseases

Pepal bridges the gap between these two worlds; non-profit organisations, who know how to access the hard to reach, change behaviours and improve lives, and companies, who bring business skills, commercial acumen and an ability to scale. We are a trusted and neutral partner creating a common language, catalysing innovation and effortlessly supporting project implementation.
— Julie Saunders, Executive Director
