Impact through innovation

New technologies and business models can transform how the international development community serves people in need. Accenture Development Partnerships helps organizations in this sector dramatically increase their impact in areas such as global healthcare, education, financial inclusion and energy access. By applying the talents of our people, capabilities and experience, we are empowering our clients, including non-governmental organizations, foundations and government financial institutions, to improve millions of lives in the developing world. Together with our clients, we are building momentum to change the world and bringing us closer to achieving the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals.

Since launching in 2003, we have completed more than 1,600 projects across 90 countries. By tapping into the best of Accenture's ecosystem and alliance partners—global reach, extensive capabilities, cross-industry perspectives and a skilled workforce—we can provide end-to-end solutions.

We help our clients develop sustainable, innovative and market-based solutions to maximize value while driving measurable impact.

Digital transformation in the development sector

A mindset shift is needed to achieve success.

Today, non-profits must navigate an increasingly digital environment to continue to solve complex challenges, deliver services and protect people. To ensure success, investment in digital transformation must go beyond technology adoption and deeper into the fabric of non-governmental organizations (NGOs) enabling people and organizational change.

Adopting this change will allow NGOs to more effectively help communities in low- and middle-income countries grow and thrive.
