Eventhough we would love to serve all local nonprofits, we have to selection a few of them to make sure our work has a real and durable impact.

We work with charitable organisations:

  • That are fully and officially registered,
  • That have a clear mission and vision,
  • That keep transparent updated reports on their activities,
  • That have demonstrated a considerable track record,
  • That have proven to be trustworthy,
  • That put the human being at the center of their structure,
  • That actively aim to create long-term value and impact on their communities.
  • That focus on areas that are officially deemed of first necessity to achieve a country specific development goals.
  • That aim to become more independent in terms of resources.

There are so many causes to support... We ought to support the ones we choose to fight for with the most care to achieve the best results. Thus while designing community projects and aid programs:

  • We assess the issues we aim to tackle in a holistic manner, taking into account contexts and eco-systems,
  • We analyze the beneficiaries needs and their roots using large field surveys,
  • We check our results and conclusions with the work of renewed NGOs,
  • We study the best response options given the available resources (human, financial, material),
  • We evaluate the potential implementation hurdles and plan to avoid them,
  • We design the appropriate solution that will delivers great impact with high efficiency
  • We try to create as many synergies as possible between our pool of charitable organizations.

Because the African anthropological context can be tainted with a number of structural issues such as: ethnical or civil wars and conflicts, tribalism, ancestral beliefs, gender inequalities, witchcraft, etc. We always make sure that we develop with the nonprofits we work with projects and programs that apply equity, diversity and inclusion.

  • We design programs that are cost effective.
  • For each initiative we are responsible for, we derive a respective funds allocation plan
    according to priorities while staying coherent with the needs and pace of the project.
  • The goal being to be as efficient as possible in terms of financial efforts and impacts.
  • We schedule funds transfers plans that suit both the donors and the charitable organizations we accompany.

We are a guarantor to donors, partners and sponsors. We insure that the funds and ressources they generously grant the nonprofits we serve will be used for the projects and programmes they are intended to.

In order for the projects and programmes we help adjust and redesign to come true:

  • We are in touch with the official authorities in the areas and communities work will be done as well as with beneficiaries leaders,
  • We are often in charge of obtaining any needed authorisations from local government representative, construction / renovation permit, etc,
  • We minimise costs by looking for and negociating deals having access to whole sale and bulk purchase,
  • We set-up a “realisation / construction schedule”,
  • We gradually release funds to the charities task after task to make sure the funds and ressources are used correctly and efficiently,
  • We go on fields to follow the project and programmes implementation evolutions,
  • We make sure standards, norms and safety are applied,
  • We assist to projects and programmes launches.

In the end, we push to translate value into measurable impact. By doing so, we can constantly make room for significant improvements as we assess what works, what does not and what could be better.

In an environment with low good governance regards, it is important for us to reassure foreign donors, partners and sponsor on the advancement of the projects and programs they support, are emotionally and financially invested into.

Thus we send weekly reports to them consisting in financial statements, pictures and videos, as well as projections, etc.

If it is desired and if a diplomatic representation from the country of the donors, partners and sponsor exist in the recipients country, these follow-ups can be done directly via the embassy or consulate that sometimes send delegations to appreciate the advancement of the works, the constructions or the implementation of programs. When foreign donors, partners and sponsors cannot come visit themselves, such diplomatic representatives are also usually present for projects, programs launches, foundation stone laying ceremonies, final signatures, etc.

For the remaining life of the projects and programs we will send supported by a foreign donor, partner or sponsor, we will send by creating such thorough liaison:

  • We build confidence and trust with foreign donors, partners and sponsors,
  • We shift power and build trusting relationships between local beneficiaries and foreign benefactors,
  • We hope to show to foreign donors, partners and sponsors the direct impact of their generosity, the human value of their consideration and efforts.
