How we combat poverty
In our fight against poverty, we leverage our partner network and community knowledge to find lasting and effective solutions in health care, education, economic opportunity, and water accessibility.
To ensure that the programs sponsored by your donations are successful, we work diligently with our partners on the ground to evaluate and report on outcomes. Improvements are then made to help build sustainable and lasting impact in the communities we serve.
Delivering programs in these key areas enables communities and their members to stand on their feet. contribute to the local, national, and global economy raising themselves out of poverty.
To find the right solution, we engage as many stakeholders as we can to better understand the context, the problem, and the potential solution. Our commitment to the SDGs helps us decide what projects have the greatest impact and how they should get funded.
Some of the various solutions include skills training centres for women, bakeries to address food insecurity, solar desalination units, microfinancing options to assist widows in gaining livelihood through entrepreneurship, and more.
The work doesn’t stop with selecting a solution. We often retain and train local resources to take ownership of the project to ensure that its cultural and social implementation is successful.
Committed to delivering meaningful return per donation made, and reporting the results back to our constituents. To do so, we implement processes in the field to monitor, evaluate, and improve performance of projects. All learning is carried forward to optimize our impact and operations to be better allies to the communities we serve.
