We build close partnerships with organisations worldwide that have a strong innovative vision or track record for effective action, supporting inspiring programmes that leave a better world for future generations. From humanitarian initiatives to environmental conservation programmes, we work to make a difference for the planet and its inhabitants, joining forces over the long term with our principal partners:

Get on Board for Children!

Since 2009, the MSC Group and UNICEF have partnered in life-changing programmes to fight malaria in Africa, to provide an education for children living in the slums of Brazil and to combat child malnutrition, saving 100,000 young lives. Our most recent programme is in Ivory Coast, where we're recycling plastic waste to support children’s education and improve women’s employment.

Recycling plastic waste into building bricks for new classrooms

Together with UNICEF, we’re creating a women-empowering recycling market that makes plastic waste into innovative low-cost bricks to build much-needed modern classrooms.
