We bridge worlds

We believe in using the power of business and partnership to change the lives of people in poverty.

Transforming communities

We envision a world where every person has access to quality health and education services, no matter where they live. We bring this to life by delivering leading programmes across Maternal, Newborn and Child Health, and Remote Community Development.

Amplifying impact

Since 1998, we have touched the lives of more than 600,000 people living in poverty as well as countless others through our influence, networks and knowledge sharing.

Building partnerships

For more than 25 years, we’ve been forging partnerships across sectors and countries. Thanks to our business-for-purpose model, 100% of every donation supports our work with people in some of the world’s remotest places.

Corporate advice

We’re a corporate advisory firm with a difference, providing strategic advice to leading Australian companies. The fees we generate support our work with people living in poverty. Adara Partners provides independent advice, second opinions, complex commercial problem solving and capital raising advice.

Unrivalled experience

Our advisory services are provided by our Panel of 15 of the best-known advisors in Australia. They lead engagements on behalf of Adara without recompense. Direct, undiluted access to these individuals working collaboratively is not available elsewhere.

Proven track record

We’ve built an impressive track record advising some of Australia’s largest companies on critical transactions including equity capital markets, mergers and acquisitions, and complex commercial problem solving. Our clients have included Atlas Arteria, Commonwealth Bank, Sydney Airport, the Paul Ramsay Foundation and Wesfarmers.

About the Adara Group

Our mission is to bridge the world of business and the world of people in extreme poverty.

The Adara Group consists of an international development organisation, Adara Development, and two corporate advisory businesses, Adara Partners and Adara Advisors. We have two very different parts but one shared purpose: to bring quality health and education services to communities in need.
