Our Vision for Income Generation

At Bread and Water for Africa® we believe in giving a “hand up” not a “hand out.” We support programs by providing them the initial startup money needed to get their program off the ground in the short term, but for the long term we expect them to ultimately become self-sufficient.

THE CHALLENGES

WHAT Bread and Water for Africa® IS DOING

With your support, can provide our partners with financial grants to help them realize their dream of long-term self-sufficiency. These grants provide the seed money to develop their projects which will raise the money necessary to operate their programs so that they will no longer need funding from outside sources.

WHERE AND WHO WE WORK WITH

 

Provide the initial funding to our partners to create income generating projects to help sustain their program’s future funding needs.

OUR IMPACT IN 2016
