Context, international cooperation was established as a social business in the Netherlands in 1998. Due to the fact that in the Netherlands it is not possible to register as a social enterprise, and facing regular difficulties functioning as a social business in the context of international cooperation, Context, international cooperation established its non-profit associate Context Foundation in 2012. The Context Foundation is fully owned by Context, i.e. it is entirely subsidised by Context, international cooperation.
Context, international cooperation offers research and dissemination packages, trainings and consultancy services at an international level to organisations that deliver genuine social change. Context’s staff believes that as change makers, it is our duty to support efforts made to combat poverty, resist exclusion and counter violation of human rights. Beyond its own staff members, Context has grown to include a network of social entrepreneurs, local businesses, development organisations, policy makers and academics in Asia (mainly South Asia and Indo-China), Africa (mainly East and South Africa) and Europe (mainly the Netherlands, Belgium, Germany and the UK).
Organisations that are inspired and passionate about creating a positive change in society and those that aim for competitiveness and financial sustainability can count on the support of Context. We provide support to organisations to (re)position themselves; to understand, grow and scale their business models; and to better understand how to increase social impact. Professional research expertise and tailor-made support are core to our work, as we believe that every case is unique, faces unique challenges and is embedded in a unique environmental context.
Context’s core areas of expertise include Social & Economic Impact Assessment; Monitoring & Evaluation; Action Research; Strategic Development; Operational Support; and Business Development Support. After its establishment in 2012, Context Foundation commenced its activities in 2013. The foundation’s core activities include research, consultancy services, facilitation of trainings, and knowledge dissemination regarding international cooperation and social business.
