Partnerships succeed when opportunity drives collaboration and partnerships work best when goals are shared. Establishing this common purpose sets the foundation and acts as the glue holding the partnership together.​

Seva Canada maintains multiple partnerships with funders, institutions, corporations, governments and experts in many different fields. A good partnership works toward common goals; a great partnership leans into each other’s strengths to bring the best talent forward.

Of all of Seva’s partnerships, it is our program partnerships that define us. 

As a result, we have trusted and long-standing program partners around the world. Together, we put our best shared ideas forward: high-quality eye care available to all, a commitment to gender equity and evidence-based development. The result is combined solutions towards our common goal: eliminating preventable blindness.

Big breakthroughs and progress don’t happen in silos. We will harness what we need to build human capital by working collaboratively within  Canada and in each of our program countries to fuel growth, innovation, equity  and sustainability.
