Counterpart International Celebrates 48 Years

ARLINGTON, Va., Jan. 27, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Global nonprofit Counterpart International today celebrates 48 years of community-led development that has transformed the lives and livelihoods of people in more than 65 countries.


"Throughout its history, Counterpart has never ceased to forge the partnerships that build inclusive, sustainable communities where people thrive," says Board Chairman Jeffrey T. LaRiche, President & CEO at CASTLE Worldwide in Morrisville, N.C. "It gives me great confidence in future achievements for Counterpart and the people it serves."

Counterpart has ongoing projects in 23 countries, including Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Senegal, Honduras and Azerbaijan.

Tackling food security and nutrition, economic development, and effective governance and institutions, Counterpart works closely with communities to identify local resources and use them to affect demand-driven change.

The past 12 months are no exception. For example, in the West African country of Niger (where temperatures can skyrocket above 100 degrees), managing scarce water is critical. In cooperation with Counterpart, more than 1,200 people learned how-to manage community wetlands, which allowed them to reinvigorate their environment and economy.

"Counterpart brings communities together to prioritize their needs and use their own assets to change their futures," says President and CEO Joan Parker. "We act as a catalyst, bringing in the resources, expertise and strategic planning to make those goals a reality."

This approach was at the core of the global nonprofit from its start.

In 1965, iconic Australian movie star Betty Silverstein (nee Bryant) saw the huge unmet needs in the South Pacific. With her husband and Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer president Maurice, and Marist priest Stan Hosie, she created an organization to help them.

Founded as the Foundation for the Peoples of the South Pacific, the organization worked with nascent civil society organizations to tackle issues of water, health, housing, and livelihoods.
