At Chance for Childhood, we have a strong track record of working with companies to deliver impactful corporate partnerships. Working in partnership we can support you to demonstrate your responsibility in aligning financial performance with your company’s commitment to creating long-term value in line with the following Sustainable Development Goals:
SDG 4: Ensuring an inclusive and equitable quality education for all
SDG 16.2: ending all forms of violence against children by 2030
We work with children in highly vulnerable situations, such as children living in refugee settlements, who are often not included in mainstream development programmes because they are considered ‘too hard to reach. This means that every £1 donated will help achieve a high return on social impact.
We can work seamlessly with your team to deliver data and measurable outcomes to satisfy your corporate governance needs and show shareholders and stakeholders the impact you are having.

Supporting staff engagement and team building through international trips with Think Money Group
During our 15-year partnership with Think Money Group, we have established a successful Give As You Earn (GAYE) scheme for their employees which has raised over £280,000 to date. We have also supported the implantation of their staff an engagement policy by organising several staff trips to Rwanda where employees have been able to see the impact of their support first-hand. We have also held bespoke webinars for staff who have not been able to travel allowing them to interact with children at Nyabihu Deaf School first-hand and even learn some sign language.
“I am proud that through our partnership we have made a difference to so many children’s lives. When I hear the stories about the children our funds have helped to support, and how they feel more positive about life and are making plans and dreaming about the future, I can’t help but get emotional. Throughout the partnership, we have run several staff trips that have enabled our employees to see the work first-hand. When you go on a trip you realise that you can make a difference. Every time I go to Rwanda I feel the warmth of the people. Chance for Childhood make sure that every pound you give will make an impact for children in vulnerable situations” Chris Jones, Commercial Manager, Think Money Group
Helping to deliver ESG objectives and a ground-breaking technology partnership with Entain
Since 2020 we have worked together with Entain to develop two new programmes that support local community ownership and co-creation of sustainable development solutions to meet the ESG objectives linked to Entain’s expansion into the African market.
Through our ‘Change the first 1,000 days’ pilot programme the Entain Foundation has supported 600 out-of-school children to gain access to inclusive education in Accra. As a newly formed foundation, we were able to share our experience of grant-making processes, Trustee recruitment and best practice with Entain as they established the Board.
In 2022 we will be working with technologists at Entain’s Ennovate Hub on an innovative mobile app that digitises and builds on Chance for Childhood’s ground-breaking approach to detect hidden disabilities and development delays amongst pre-school children in Africa.
“The Entain Foundation was set up to enable our business to contribute back to society and support communities around the globe. We are proud to be able to support the invaluable work of Chance for Childhood, to make a transformational positive impact on such vulnerable children.” Jette Nygaard-Andersen, CEO of Entain.
