Babagana (second from left) signed up for one of NRC's courses called “How to do business” and successfully opened up his own fruit stand in Maiduguri, Nigeria. By doing so his family did not only create work for themselves, they were also an inspiration for their local community and future business men and women. Photo: Beate Simarud/NRC

Corporate partnerships

A corporate partnership with the Norwegian Refugee Council (NRC) is an exchange of expertise where businesses and corporations play an important role in humanitarian response.

In order to meet the needs of more than 100 million displaced people worldwide, we need to unite forces across sectors and work together as one team. Through mutual partnerships we are dedicated to finding unique solutions for people who have been forced to flee, helping them build a sustainable future for themselves and their communities.

The global displacement situation is one our time’s greatest challenges and a partnership with NRC can help you maximise your social impact and contribute to solving a global challenge. You can get unique insight from our experienced humanitarian workers and exchange expertise. A partnership with NRC can also be your opportunity to discover innovative solutions towards assisting people in most need.

NRC works hard to find the best solutions and deliver services in areas where few other organisations operate. We take great pride in tailoring each partnership to help you maximise your social impact and achieve your strategic objectives. We have a dedicated corporate partnerships team that personally follows up on all partner correspondence, offers strategic advice and assists with field trips if desired.
