Who We Are

We are a philanthropic impact investment fund based in Zambia that believes that Social Impact Investments can provide  alternative innovative sources of sustainable funding that can address social issues such as Gender economic inequality and education for the most vulnerable children. The various economic empowerment interventions we use are aimed at empowering many women living in extreme poverty with limited or no access to capital.  Our equity capital funding is focused on providing access to cheaper funding that is generally lacking for most women running a micro economic enterprise. Our investment returns from our Equity based empowerment fund are in turn used to supplement donor funding aimed at providing basic education and feeding programs for vulnerable children in severely underfunded community schools.

With our unique blended funding approach we are able to provide sustainable funding that is not solely dependant on Donor aid but combines impact investments to address social issues like Gender inequality, poor access to education and basic nutrition for the most vulnerable children. Through our approach we are able to contribute towards the attainment of the Global 2030 Agenda of Sustainable development goals (SDGs) with specific emphasis on  Poverty (SDG1), Hunger (SDG2), Gender equality (SDG5) and reduced inequalities (SDG10) among others.

Evidence has shown that complete dependency on Donor Aid is not sustainable as any global economic downturn results in restricted aid flow despite the need for aid being undiminished. For example, in 2020 the US proposed a 23% decline in donor aid, globally the United States of America is one of the top 5 Donors, accounting for about 35% of the top 5 Donors. The largest recipients of foreign aid are in Sub Sahara Africa, on an annual basis Africa is estimated to receive about US$50 billion of international aid. About 40 percent of Africa’s population live in extreme poverty surviving on less than $1.90/day. To tackle poverty sustainably and effectively on the continent, alternative approaches that reduce reliance on donor aid need to be explored, the Simpact Foundation funding model is based on using alternative approaches that not only have social impact but are resilient and sustainable with reduced reliance on donor aid. Our seed funding approach is aimed at growing donor funded aid so as to achieve self sustainability.

A global economic downturn or a  pandemic does not reduce the gravity of the need for poor people, on the contrary the aid is needed even more as the poor are the most vulnerable during such times. We believe that social impact investments can help provide sustainable funding required to deliver transformative social change in the lives of many vulnerable women and children.
