This past year, we celebrated a major milestone and turning point for the company, having reached the size that required a move into commercial space. We are proud to be recognized within the industry as an established and successful partner for USAID. We hold two prestigious awards from USAID in collaborating, learning, and adapting (a key area of focus for the Agency) and three long-term country-based prime contracts.
We are a proven and successful social enterprise with a double bottom line: we are a for-profit company and we provide premium consulting services to improve global health and reduce chronic poverty. To do this, Panagora:
Engages the private sector in development
Brings all parties to the table in adapting and using knowledge to improve their effectiveness
Creates strong institutions in developing countries that are able to help build capacity
Institutionalizes the concept of utilization-focused evaluation so that the groups we advise are on a self-driven path to improved performance
As we look ahead, we are strategically planning ways to expand our work and make a difference in addressing global poverty. To mark Panagora’s milestone described above, we made a specific commitment this coming year to focus on activities that support the growth of women leaders and entrepreneurs around the world.
