Sim­pact Foun­da­tion is a phil­an­thropic orga­ni­za­tion whose vision is to bring hope to the most vul­ner­a­ble women and chil­dren liv­ing in pover­ty through sus­tain­able and trans­for­ma­tion­al social impact. Our work focus­es on address­ing pover­ty through 3 Core Areas; Gen­der Equal­i­ty through Women Eco­nom­ic Empow­er­ment, Access to Qual­i­ty Edu­ca­tion while inte­grat­ing Con­ser­va­tion of our Envi­ron­ment to achieve sus­tain­able social impact. Our pro­gram­mat­ic inter­ven­tions focus­es on address­ing social dis­par­i­ties and envi­ron­men­tal issues through a unique mar­ket based approach that is finan­cial­ly sus­tain­able. Accord­ing to OECD data, some of the largest recip­i­ents of devel­op­ment aid are in Africa, yet Africa is home to more than half of the world’s poor. Zam­bia has one of the fastest grow­ing pop­u­la­tions and like many African coun­tries, it is plagued with high pover­ty lev­els. More than half of the pop­u­la­tion are mon­e­tary poor with the rur­al pover­ty preva­lence being 3times high­er. Because of the com­par­a­tive­ly high­er pover­ty lev­els in the rur­al parts of the coun­try, most of our pro­gramme work is tar­get­ed at this pop­u­la­tion.

Through our efforts we are con­tribut­ing towards achiev­ing 9 of the 17 Glob­al Sus­tain­able Devel­op­ment Goals (SDGs);

1 No pover­ty, 2 Zero Hunger, 4 Qual­i­ty Edu­ca­tion, 5 Gen­der Equal­i­ty, 6 Clean Water and San­i­ta­tion, 8 Decent Work and Eco­nom­ic Growth, 10 Reduced Inequal­i­ties, 13 Cli­mate Action and 15 Life On Land

About us_Vision and Mission

OUR VISION

To bring hope to women and chil­dren liv­ing in pover­ty through
sus­tain­able social impact.

OUR VISION

To reduce pover­ty through an envi­ron­men­tal­ly sus­tain­able approach by improv­ing access to qual­i­ty edu­ca­tion for vul­ner­a­ble chil­dren and reduce gen­der inequal­i­ty through the eco­nom­ic empow­er­ment of mar­gin­al­ized women.

OUR CORE VALUES

To make a last­ing and sus­tain­able impact, we are guid­ed by our core val­ues that reflect the heart of who we are at
Sim­pact Foun­da­tion. We adopt a dis­tinc­tive approach to address the needs of the most vul­ner­a­ble women
and chil­dren to dri­ve last­ing and ben­e­fi­cial trans­for­ma­tion.

Trans­for­ma­tion­al

We achieve trans­for­ma­tion­al change by using inno­v­a­tive approach­es draw­ing on dif­fer­ent dis­ci­plines in order to achieve a path to scale for our
ben­e­fi­cia­ries

Trans­par­ent

We act with Integri­ty and trans­paren­cy in account­ing for all the resources entrust­ed to us.

Resilient

We use a sus­tain­able
approach to
deliv­er last­ing solu­tions to address pover­ty.

Recep­tive

We are recep­tive to the devel­op­ment needs of the vul­ner­a­ble in our soci­ety.

Col­lab­o­ra­tive

We believe that form­ing mutu­al­ly ben­e­fi­cial part­ner­ships can help us make a more impact­ful change for peo­ple liv­ing in pover­ty.

OUR DEVELOPMENT APPROACH

We believe that we can reduce reliance on donor aid by com­bin­ing a mar­ket based approach and result based devel­op­ment method­olo­gies to sus­tain­ably address pover­ty and envi­ron­men­tal issues. By lever­ag­ing our exist­ing human cap­i­tal, which includes our vast finan­cial and invest­ment man­age­ment exper­tise, we can sus­tain­ably raise funds for our social impact pro­grams through a mutu­al­ly ben­e­fi­cial part­ner­ship mod­el. Some of the part­ner­ship options we use includes pro­vid­ing per­son­al finan­cial man­age­ment train­ing for cor­po­rate part­ners employ­ees in exchange for a dona­tion towards our social pro­grams. Low finan­cial lit­er­a­cy and health do not just affect the poor, accord­ing to avail­able data, dif­fer­ent cat­e­gories of adults includ­ing salaried employ­ees strug­gle with per­son­al finan­cial man­age­ment and lack the nec­es­sary knowl­edge and skills to meet their finan­cial goals. Despite high­er lev­els of finan­cial inclu­sion, only 13.6% of adults in Zam­bia are finan­cial­ly healthy. By sub­scrib­ing to our ser­vices, our part­ners not only receive crit­i­cal per­son­al finan­cial man­age­ment train­ing, but they also play a role in con­serv­ing our envi­ron­ment and improv­ing the lives of many peo­ple liv­ing in pover­ty.  We lever­age our unique exper­tise and an entre­pre­neur­ial approach to cre­ate mutu­al­ly ben­e­fi­cial val­ue to address pover­ty and con­serve our envi­ron­ment.

OUR VISION 2027

Our strate­gic plan sets out the path for us to be able to trans­form the lives of over 200,000 peo­ple liv­ing in pover­ty.
