  • Build a pipeline of new organizations who could be candidates for growth funding.

  • Create a strategic approach to philanthropy and other forms of philanthropic giving and impact investing in Ghana and structure organizational partnerships in a mutually beneficial manner.

  • Support and incentivize Ghana’s private sector to have an impact on the attainment of the SDG’s.
