EVI’s partners include institutional donors and clients, as well as individual donors who we see as our Social Stakeholders. EVI partners with multinational and local entities to leverage benefits to vulnerable communities. Most recently, EVI has developed business support strategies with multinational corporations, such as Coca-Cola and Estee Lauder, to develop targeted market systems through activities such as improving microenterprise beverage distribution, enhancing sustainable essential oil production, and connecting sustainable aquaculture production to international buyers through innovative private sector partnerships.
