Partner with us!

What to expect when you partner with us.

Keep a Child Alive offers partners a high-profile opportunity to engage existing and prospective consumers in a globally resonating cause – the biggest epidemic of our time.

We know the power of partnership, and place great value in the relationships we’ve established. With each prospective partner we look to find mutually beneficial alliances that make strategic sense for all, help us advance our mission, and are in alignment with our partner’s on-going objectives.

It’s important to us that our partners have confidence in the association with our brand and the work that is being done on the ground, with their support. Working hands-on with community-based organizations, we implement a results-orientated approach, with rigorous monitoring and evaluation to achieve tangible results.

And, not to toot our own horn, we’re proud of the cutting edge programs and initiatives we have in place, and are excited to collaborate with organizations who think like us.


We recognize the power of a strategic, well-executed marketing campaign, to reach consumers in meaningful ways and enhance brand affiliation. We work with our partners to identify the best opportunity for collaboration, whether through sales of a product, affiliation in a media campaign, joint press opportunities, sponsorship of cutting edge programs, or whatever else you have in mind.

And we like to work closely with our partners,
all having the full support of our team.
