In-depth Due-Diligence

We adopt private equity standards to our due diligence process. It is well-defined, robust and thorough.

We look at all aspects of the organisation to select the higher impact and more sustainable organisations. 

Measuring Impact

Being able to measure the impact our giving has on individuals is an important factor in our analysis. 

We define in advance, with the association, criteria that will help us measure the impact.

Monitoring

We commit to carefully monitor every organisation in our portfolio to reflect a true view of the social impact it achieves. 

We collaborate with organisations to monitor them on a bi-annually basis and through yearly site visits.

We will enhance your donor experience by sharing those monitoring reports with you

Our Portfolio

GIFT has various organisations under due diligence. 
Please note that we do not accept unsolicited grant proposals.

CAMFED Tanzania 

Taylor made five year project that enables 430 marginalised girls in rural Tanzania to access and attend secondary education thereby increasing their potential for a better life

GIFT is very excited to support this project. It fully matches our mission of transforming lives one at a time in an effective and sustainable manner.

The five-year project, designed by WISE, a philanthropy advisor (http://www.wise.net), and CAMFED is highly relevant, effective and sustainable. It involves existing local structures including community leaders and CAMA, a tight alumni network. Communities learn to tackle issues, manage and monitor projects by themselves.

The Give It Forward magic is ensured through the alumni association. Girls supported by CAMFED join the alumni association where they get further support with income generating activities and where they, in turn, help other girls access secondary education.

WHEN YOU EDUCATE A GIRL, EVERYTHING CHANGES

It is at the secondary school level that the transformative potential of continued education is greatest. Yet girls are the first to drop out: 75% enter primary school, but only 8% finish secondary school. Research shows that:

CAMFED  is a pan-African movement revolutionising how girls’ education is delivered. It was founded by Ann Cotton in 1993 and by 2019 it supported over 4.1 million children through a network of partner schools in five countries in Africa: Zimbabwe, Ghana, Malawi, Tanzania and Zambia.

Through a gold-standard system of accountability to the young people and communities, CAMFED has created a local model that radically improves girls’ prospects of becoming independent, influential women. Its impact increases exponentially through CAMA, an alumni association of young women educated with CAMFED’s support. Camfed
