The COVID-19 pandemic has created unprecedented change around the world. Our lives have all been impacted, some even more than others. It has become our goal, to ensure that our courses remain uninterrupted and consistent, even during shocks such as the COVID-19 pandemic. We aim to do this through Sustainable Income Generation, reducing donor dependence to the minimum.
The Foundation of Goodness has innovated in many ways to introduce sustainable income generation avenues through value addition services that involve our very own beneficiaries. 100% of our proceeds from these activities are reinvested into the Foundation of Goodness for the sustainability of our community development programmes, and ensures a brighter future for rural individuals and families in the villages we support.
