Strength in the crisis

Annual Impact Report 2020

As an impact lender, we think in terms of opportunities. We create space to grow, and we reinforce the resilience of people and organizations. That didn’t change in 2020. So we look back on a year where we saw plenty of opportunities in spite of the limitations. In the stories on this site, you can read how those opportunities were seized – by our partners, our target groups, and by us.

“In 2020, we felt how limitations can define your life, and what it’s like to be vulnerable. The pandemic has highlighted the vital necessity of the social changes that we work to achieve.”
