Pepal is a global foundation that creates partnerships between businesses and NGOs to achieve scalable and sustainable social change in developing and emerging markets.
Based in the UK, with operations in Africa, Asia and Eastern Europe, Pepal designs and delivers Executive Development Programmes that bring together diverse stakeholders on initiatives that create commercial opportunities and benefit for disadvantaged communities.
Pepal bridges the gap between these two worlds; non-profit organisations, who know how to access the hard to reach, change behaviours and improve lives, and companies, who bring business skills, commercial acumen and an ability to scale. We are a trusted and neutral partner creating a common language, catalysing innovation and effortlessly supporting project implementation.
