In order to increase its effectiveness the Podini Foundation collaborates with local organizations working in the fields of education and health, which oversee the implementation of projects on the spot.

For example in Eritrea a wonderful teamwork was established with the Capuchin Friars.

In Cambodia, instead, the Foundation worked through CIAI and NAAA, two international adoption agencies, and the Community of St. Egidio.

Government involvement is another key element of the Foundation's approach, recognizing that operating in these countries without the support of local authorities is difficult.
