Afrinspire supports local partner organizations functioning at the grassroots level to tackle the root causes of poverty, and build on the assets and opportunities of each community.
Afrinspire is built upon trust and the careful building of relationships with leaders of grassroots NGOs in Africa. The organization doesn’t just help bridge the resource divide by providing PCs and books, but works hard to create and maintain a close network of dedicated individuals who advise Afrinspire on projects to finance and entrepreneurs to support. Afrinspire’s innovative methodology allows their work to benefit huge numbers of people and encourages southern initiatives by building their capacity.
Every person and every community is different, and therefore so is every project. We recognize that the needs of communities are multi-faceted, and therefore our response must be too.
By using our innovative approach, Afrinspire is able to identify local projects where small inputs of money and resources can make a huge difference and create a lasting change.
After we receive a proposal ...
Using our criteria, we process the application and consider its proposal to assess whether we can make a connection with them to work as a potential partner.
We listen to the needs and ideas of our partners, rather than imposing our own agenda, and work with them by drawing on our network’s broad range of experience and expertise to find a tailor-made solution
We recognize the importance of empowering communities to find their own solutions and to work at their own pace.
By partnering with them, we enable change to be brought about faster, more effectively, significantly, and sustainably than if local leaders were working on their own.
