This annual report features some of the stories and insights gained from our partner-based experiences in the past year. Our work in digital financial inclusion, which features a robust partnership with the private sector, shows how development and humanitarian initiatives can be done on a bigger and more efficient scale. The Marawi Humanitarian Response reveals the critical role of partnerships with local context and culture-aware groups, and leaders to reach more conflict-affected communities and internally-displaced populations. Our work on the Bangsamoro Basic Law (BBL) provides insights on the value of supporting local women immersed in advocacy. Our efforts towards the recognition and redistribution of care work, paired with community-based initiatives, show us the different pathways to gender justice. The stories that are shared in this report strengthen our conviction to work in strategic partnerships and our belief in its transformative potential.
