Business’s NGO partner for international development
With more than 30 years’ experience engaging the private sector and leveraging private sector investment, ABV can partner with you to build shared outcomes for your business and the communities in which you work.
Among international development not-for-profits ABV is unique in that our focus has always been on strengthening small businesses and economic institutions, with a vision of alleviating poverty through inclusive economic growth.
ABV’s projects are impactful and cost-effective because they are implemented by volunteers drawn from our large registry of senior business professionals and small business owners. Our volunteers bring extensive experience to each project along with an independent and altruistic approach that guarantees effective and authentic skills transfer and mentoring.
ABV can collaborate with your business and the local community to design customised small business-oriented community development programs which our volunteers will implement.
Community and private sector focused
Because of our private sector focus, and having worked across South East Asia, PNG and the Pacific for three decades, we understand the issues that corporations face in building and maintaining their social licence to operate with local communities and other stakeholders.
Sustainable and inclusive local economic development is key to successful community relations. ABV’s volunteer cohort of senior business professionals and small business owners has the expertise to work with local communities to design business models which not only leverage your investments, but are capable of sustainable competitiveness if your corporation moves on.
ABV is keen to partner with you to build sustainable and inclusive local businesses and supply chains, with the ultimate goal of delivering value that is genuinely shared between your business and local communities.
