Sources of Funding
Partners facilitating the big dream
Individuals and organizations that are enthusiastic about carrying this dream with us and supporting the call are highly welcome on-board.
Our programs will be designed in a way to mobilize resources in a well-planned and sustainable way. Drawing from our mission and strategic plan we will derive resources by first and foremost working out what we want to do within a particular community and how much will be needed to do it. Smile of Africa will strive to limit its donor dependency so as not to undermine our ability to sustain focus and build expertise in a chosen program area. While foreign grant funding will remain a vital source of support for our initiatives, we will try to tap into what communities can sacrifice for their own prosperity. Local resources may be scarce, but we will seek to generate at least part of our annual budget through membership, appeals to individuals as well as holding innovative events and earning income in some way. We believe there is much under-exploited potential.
We intend to partner with the Governments in our host countries to exploit any and all opportunities where there may be available resources which may be used to impact on the lives of the needy. Government outreach agencies have proven worthy partner in especially the fight against illiteracy and poverty in Africa.
We will organize seminars and workshops events involving some level of fee. By offering training to other like-minded organizations on a sustainable basis we hope to establish in the long run a market where organizations pay for these services at affordable rates. In doing so, we will also be working with locally based trainers and partners in the organization of events so to create opportunities for locals. Campaigning for tax incentives to encourage individual and corporate philanthropy is one of the areas they intend to prioritize. Resource Alliance has provided encouragement and advice to the group throughout the two-year process of forming the Association.
PRIVATE INDIVIDUALS AND COMPANIES
We intend to campaign for tax incentives in our areas of operation to encourage individual and corporate philanthropy as a means of tapping into resources such as Corporate Social Responsibility.
Smile of Africa will also be utilizing its capital and monetary assets to roll out the initiatives and begin work in the initial three location of Africa namely Kenya, Nigeria and South Africa.
