Social Venture Philanthropy

Uyabonelela Community Project has evolved a working model Social Venture Philanthropy (SVP) which is based on the successful business model of “Venture Capital”.

Social Venture Philanthropy, the application of a hitherto successful business concept to the social and development sector: a concept which pertains to linking social investment strategies to charitable giving with a clear focus on achieving scalability and sustainability, creating a culture of leadership and excellence and inculcating a deep sense of accountability amongst the nonprofits.

Uyabonelela Community Project underscores the fact that helping is not simply a matter of dispersing money but of making a deep, long-term commitment and casting a hard eye on results. Under the Social Venture Philanthropy (SVP) model, Uyabonelela Community Project identifies handholds and builds capacities of genuine grassroots NGOs to achieve accountability, sustainability, scalability, leadership. Through the SVP model, Uyabonelela Community Project makes an effort to broad base investment in order to maximize its reach and optimize returns by approaching and strengthening a large number of like-minded individuals and organizations globally.

Uyabonelela Community Project provides seed money for launch of new projects, expansion of old projects, and also emphasizes on regular counseling, better productivity, efficiency enhancement and capacity building of grassroots NGO’s, communication and process of Good Governance.
