Welcome to ARK.
We are a stabilisation and development company, combining a global outlook with community-level engagement and innovative approaches to generate opportunity and sustainable positive social change.
Specialising in complex and challenging environments, we provide policy-relevant insights and deliver cost-effective, impactful programming in support of the following UN Sustainable Development Goals – Peace, Justice and Strong Institutions, Reduced Inequalities, Gender Equality and Partnerships for the Goals.
INCUBATE: We support and develop ideas from our staff, partners and local communities, helping them grow into sustainable projects with measurable, positive social impact.
INNOVATE: The challenging environments we work in mean there are no ready-made solutions for the problems communities face. From process innovation to leveraging technology and public-private partnerships, we think creatively to find the most appropriate, feasible, cost-effective solutions.
IMPACT: We monitor and track the impact of projects long after completion. In the Palestinian Camps in Lebanon, projects we supported over the past decade have grown to provide incomes for 1000s of people. Vulnerable and marginalised young people we have mentored have grown into leaders in their communities.
