Mlinda Charitable Trust believes that sustainable growth is best achieved through working in close collaboration with others. This includes both understanding the needs and aspirations of the people in the villages we work in and developing strong strategic partnerships with other organisations, recognising that our contribution is just part of the solution to achieving our vision.

The Trust, of course, has a shared vision with the Mlinda Group and the partnerships forged within that group are fundamental to achieving the vision. We work closely with Mlinda Sustainable Environment (Private) Ltd, who build and operate the solar minigrids in Gumla district and we are primarily funded by Mlinda Foundation, 

We are grateful to Oak Foundation, MILAAP and many others who have directly supported the Trust’s work and we welcome enquiries from potential funders, partners and organisations interested in applying our work elsewhere.
