Grab The Opportunity To Create a Positive Impact in This World.
Partin is an association that supports over 300 small-scale NGOs to allow for closer collaboration and cooperation to support the interest of these NGOs. All participating NGOs in the I-DO project are part of Partin. The motto “Together we can do more, together we do more” forms the basis of Partin's activities. Partin tries to make things possible for the collective that are impossible for the individual NGO.

Mpilo provides schools, orphanages, and remote villages in Zimbabwe with access to clean water and electricity using solar energy.

Currently, Rhiza improves healthcare, education, and enterprise development in South Africa and Ghana. The consulting team must help Rhiza with establishing brand awareness, and with sparking novel ideas to enhance the projects’ positive impact.
“It is amazing to see many young and ambitious students feeling the urge to support social projects. The collaboration with RSM students has the potential to boost these organizations and change the lives of thousands. I am super excited to see how the “I DO”- Project plays out. And I hope together we will be able to transform the Pilot into an elective for future RSM students!”
