Get Involved » Corporate Support
The B2A community includes many companies who have helped enormously in helping us restore smiles and change lives since our beginnings. In turn, these companies have also gained benefits that go to and well beyond the bottom line.
Working together for mutual benefit...
Together we bring about positive change - We work day in day out to deliver lasting improvement to people’s lives in East Africa. We are expanding our innovative and proven models to affect many millions of people in the next ten years. We want you to be a part of this.
We help you build morale - Involving your employees in charity work can help with team-building, learning and development. Uniting your workforce behind a common goal can help you recruit and retain staff.
We help you gain positive PR coverage and increased brand awareness. Participating in our fundraising events, making a donation or holding your own events will bring a great deal of positive publicity and enhance your reputation in your local community and your market.
We are grateful to all the companies who support us. Click here for a list of our Corporate Supporters.
