BENEFITING: All For Africa
EVENT DATE: Nov 06, 2011
All for Africa, a 501-(c)3 non-profit organization, takes a collaborative approach to poverty reduction by working with the private sector to foster projects that generate economic and social benefits in the communities in which they are located. Programs focus on agriculture, food security, clean water, community health, education, energy, environmental impact, micro-financing and skills training/livelihood creation.
WHY ALL FOR AFRICA?
•Your gift is not a “here today, gone tomorrow” donation. Your donation is a philanthropic investment which increases in value by 35 times over the next 35 years. A $1000 donation will generate $35,000 in support for a community initiative to build sustainability and capacity.
•All for Africa is a leader in promoting collaboration among not for profit and local community organizations implementing successful projects on the African continent.
•All for Africa develops programs that take a holistic approach to the long-term sustainable economic growth of local communities throughout Africa.
•An investment in Africa is an investment in our world economic and environmental community.
ALL FOR AFRICA’S PALM OUT POVERTY INITIATIVE (POP)
Challenge: Diversification and maintenance of funding sources are major challenges for African non-profits and community level initiatives. These groups provide crucial services, yet the struggle for funding too often diverts attention away from their basic services and ability to expand those much needed basic services and support.
Solution: Palm Out Poverty creates sustainable, annual streams of revenue generated through the manufacture and sale of palm oil to fund much needed capacity building and support the annual operating budgets of local non-profits and community level initiatives. All for Africa seeks to utilize this funding to support organizations that are providing proven, successful models that assist in the sustainable economic growth of their communities and, when able to expand capacity, can extend their success to additional communities across their region.
