Take a minute to think…

Why are projects intended for African countries often designed in a standard frame that always includes trainings and supervision without prospects, while projects intended for developed countries often seem to be innovation-driven?

When will Africa use all the new knowledge acquired during these trainings?

Why at the end of a project, all services are closed and the beneficiaries are left on their own without a plan?

At Afrisda,

we have an innovative and a vision to sustain our project in the communities while they are taking the ownership. We always start the discussion about the exit phase and sustainability of the programs that we are about to implement from the business development stage with our national partners. Based on our sustainability approach:

Proposal development plan

We engage in true partnerships within countries, ensuring local and contextual knowledge is utilized, and technical skills are mutually shared.

Social Enterprise Model

Over 40 years since development aid and international organizations have had their presence in Africa, local organizations still operate under traditional system. Local African organizations are supposed to develop social enterprise activities for the purpose of generating income, diversifying funding sources and, ultimately, achieving organizational and financial sustainability.

Afrisda proposes an innovation on a social enterprise model that will move African local organizations from traditional charity/local organizations to responsible for-profit businesses while still fulfilling their social mission.
