Five powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

What is the organization aiming to accomplish?

To diversify funding streams<br/><br/>To repair all capital assets<br/><br/>Create sustainable income stream

We have changed the way we do fundraising. We have a donor centered fundraising strategy rather than a transactional one.<br/><br/>We are creatively thinking of other funding streams to fund the renovation of buildings. For instance, we won a 100k grant from Impact SA to renovate our small residential home. <br/><br/>We are looking for ways to increase other streams to create a sustainable income stream. We are looking at insurance and social enterprises.

We have different board committees that work tirelessly to help meet these goals.

We have plans and bench marks that tell us where we are and where we need to be. The board and the committees meet monthly to discuss the status of our progress to complete the goals.

These goals are always ongoing.<br/><br/>We have increased individual donors by making our fundraising strategy a more donor focused one. <br/><br/>We have increased our funding overall and we are in the steps to create a more sustainable funding stream.
