We hire local teams that come from high-level business backgrounds. They understand their countries and their business landscape inside out to identify businesses with the greatest social impact. We also team up with local philanthropic partners who match our international donations.
Our sourcing, selection and financing are rooted in good business practice.
We help early-stage social businesses prove their model and maximize social impact
We provide our financial partners with a portfolio review containing detailed financial & social impact metrics of all the businesses in our portfolio.
Each year we invite our financial partners to visit some of the social business they’ve helped finance. These unforgettable trips are a chance to meet social entrepreneurs and see exactly how your donations are improving people’s lives. See our write-up and video on the last East Africa Partner Trip.

Our financial partners are a small, international community of individuals from diverse backgrounds who share a passion for investing in social good. We hold regular dinners where partners have the chance to network and share experiences.
