The Power of Nutrition is a global charitable foundation that raises money and creates partnerships to advance the fight against malnutrition in Africa and Asia.
Our innovative finance and partnership model multiplies nutrition investments to make resources go further than any organisation could achieve alone. This approach enables us to invest in programmes delivered by world class implementing partners that are designed to scale up access to key interventions, improve access to nutrition for women, children and adolescents, and tackle the underlying causes of malnutrition.
Our work is led by an executive team, primarily based in London, overseen by an independent Board of Trustees and supported by a panel of experienced technical experts.
Our values have been developed by and for our team and set the foundation of our culture and the way we work. They remain consistent for whoever we work with, whether it’s the people we work with and for in Africa and Asia, our stakeholders or each other as individuals.
We share these values along with a joint passion for accelerating the fight against malnutrition. We commit to living them in everything we do.
We care about each other and ensure we treat each other with respect.
We work with compassion, showing empathy and respect in everything we do. We strive to create an honest, open and safe space where everyone can voice their own opinions and be heard. We prioritise individual and collective wellbeing.
Only by working together will we be able to advance the fight against malnutrition.
Collaboration is at the heart of our model, convening partners, with an emphasis on new organisations to nutrition, to multiply resources and achieve greater impact. Our small team is made up of individual experts; whilst what we each do is important, we achieve greater results through working together.
We understand the importance of our work and the value of the investments we work on.
We take responsibility for our actions and have shared accountability to each other as well as to the people we serve.
Our challenging sector and our unique model demands us to be agile, flexible and innovative to ensure transformative impact.
We don’t stand still; we strive for improvements and excellence in everything we do. We constantly evolve our approach to the ever-changing landscape and are flexible to new ways to achieve great impact.
The size of our team does not reflect the size of our ambition and we aim to constantly punch above our weight to impact the lives of the millions affected by malnutrition.
We create transformative impact through bold solutions that our investors and implementers could not achieve alone. Beyond our programmes, we strive to be a public good and have wider impact on the sector, lifting it up from its ‘orphan’ status.
Nutrition is an ‘orphan’ sector in international development and our model is complex; we have to work extra hard to make a difference.
We’re a nimble team that works flexibly to solve challenges, learning from knock-backs to improve how we work. We show confidence in our model, knowing the potential it has to transform the lives of many.
Above all, our team gets things done – no challenge is too great, no problem too complex; collectively we are able to find solutions for most of the tough situations.
We think practically with the delicate balance of realism with ambition. We take pride in ensuring our work has high standards and delivers clear value-add.
