Corporate Partners

We believe that no child should die of diabetes and seek partners who share this belief. Corporate partnerships play a vital role, enabling us to support young people living with diabetes in less-resourced countries with the insulin and tools they need to stay alive and the education that allows them to thrive.

Given the health-related nature of the Programme, it is generally only possible for us to send experienced health professionals on site visits, and, even then, only in certain contexts. These visits are often self-funded and the participant often speaks the language(s) of the country they are visiting, in addition to English.
