OUR MISSION PARTNERS
PRWB partners with recognized partners who are active and accepted in the field and who can involve PRWB in projects that meet our criteria. This type of collaboration maximizes chances for success and optimizes the added value of PRWB’s actions, which we want to have lasting impact. We are currently exploring several partnerships and projects.
