Since 2008, we have been working with Corporate Partners to develop exciting and innovative opportunities for companies and their employees to support our work in Ghana. The quality of our partnerships model was recognised in 2013 when one of our longest standing relationships, with international engineering firm Arup, won the prestigious Third Sector Excellence Award for Best Corporate Partnership.
Corporate partnerships offer a vital source of project income to support our work in Ghana, but we also see them as an opportunity to work with our partners to develop new ways of motivating and engaging staff in fun and rewarding activities.
If you would like to find out more about partnering with the Sabre Trust, please contact us, and we would be delighted to meet with you to explore how we can work together to build a brighter future for school children in Ghana.
|“The Sabre Trust has been our strategic corporate partner since 2008, (initially as Davis Langdon) and now as AECOM. In that time we have seen the relationship evolve into a truly mutually beneficial partnership. As a small charity, Sabre has shown itself to be flexible in its approach to corporate partnerships, making this a truly collaborative experience. Their vision is ambitious but calculated, and helping them grow as an organisation is one of our core aims.”
Carmen Harris, Corporate Responsibility Manager, AECOM
|“The partnership between Sabre and Arup demonstrates how global design expertise and local knowledge can combine to create a facility with the potential to change the lives of this and future generations. More than 50 engineers from around the world have contributed to the design and construction of this project, and in doing so, they have inspired hundreds of others in Arup, many of whom have contributed to fundraising for future kindergartens.”
Jo da Silva, Director, Arup

|Sabre has recently launched TechAid, in partnership with IT distributor Exertis, which provides an in-house fundraising platform centred around a volunteer trip for 20-30 people and IT equipment donations: http://www.techaid-uk.org/index.html
Contributions can be provided on a personal basis or as a business either through brand sponsorship or vendor partner, both of which require minimum donations: http://www.techaid-uk.org/sponsors.html The approach has allowed Exertis to engage its client base and supply chain to support Sabre and the project.

|Reach Cambridge brings together the wealth of knowledge necessary to create an unparalleled pre-college summer school experience. The senior staff have extensive experience in the education world and travel industry as well as many years of invaluable direct, first-hand experience of the Cambridge and British education system. Every summer, a number of Reach Cambridge students sign up to take part in the Community Outreach programme. As Reach Cambridge’s chosen charity partner, we work with staff and students to plan a summer of fundraising activities with all proceeds going towards our Brighter Futures Programme. Over the past six years, students have organised a wide variety of fun events, from sponsored activities, to delivering presentations, making films, and even creating a flashmob in Cambridge’s city centre, and in the process they’ve raised over £18,500!|

|“We have been impressed with Sabre as a local implementing partner – the approach taken by the whole construction team is very professional, and the site management team has been receptive and responsive to complying with our stringent health and safety standards. It is really important that Tullow Ghana Limited is investing in the future workforce, and we recognise that the skills and learning gained at kindergarten can set a child on a path to achieving their academic potential and future success. This is a long term investment into the future of the country, of which we are immensely proud.”
