The Friends of the British Council builds strategic partnerships to support the British Council's work around the world. Working with the United States and international corporations, foundations, organizations and individuals, we identify synergies, share knowledge, leverage resources and contribute financialy to British Council programs around the world.
Our goal is to customize and add value to these partnerships and projects, resulting in meaningful relationships between the British Council and its key stakeholders.
The British Council works in 110 countries touching 600 million lives each year through programs in education, the arts, english, sport, skills and community development.
We engage with all levels of society, including civil and community leaders, influencers, educators, scientists, artists, business leaders, and the media. Not only that, we work extensively with marginalized and vulnerable populations such as women, at-risk youth, early learners, areas of rural poverty and post-conflict zones. We are also majorly involved with education and work with secondary and higher education sectors and with young people starting out their careers.
