Private Sector Partnerships

Working with the private sector can increase sustainability in a community by providing jobs and training for people. These firms can be of any size, any business profile (goods, services, or financial) and be located in either rural or urban settings.

WUSC promotes sustainable development by working collaboratively with local private-sector firms dedicated to socially responsible business practices. These local businesses stimulate the economy and create much-needed jobs, diminishing the dependence on aid. 

WUSC supports private sector partnerships for sustainable development by:

  • working in cross-sectoral (public-private-NGO) partnerships dedicated to promoting community development and economic growth in Ghana
  • improving industrial relations and occupational health and safety in marginalized plantation communities in Sri Lanka.
