Greater Impact Through a Corporate Collective

Our purpose from poster

What is OLIVE LEAF Foundation's Corporate Collective Initiative?

Without detracting from your company's CSI flagship projects, OLIVE LEAF Foundation's Corporate Collective Initiative invites you to partner in an initiative that will see the resources of hundreds of companies pooled and leveraged far beyond the best efforts and resources of any single company. Social and community development initiatives need to be supported with mandatory enterprise development resources that will create the much needed broad-based community investments to sustain vocational skills development and social entrepreneurship. Our Corporate Collective Initiative meets these criteria.


What are the goals of this Initiative?

The goal is to create an annual fund to invest in strategic projects and programmes for a maximum period of 3 to 5 years. Enabling sustainable community development initiatives through strategic investments in agriculture, education, social housing and basic infrastructure will provide a platform for other government and civil society programmes to be enhanced. This fund will also enable collaborative partnerships with bigger government and international funded programmes, integrated with broad-based community development initiatives. Existing partnerships with tribal authorities will also be leveraged to ensure community ownership and sustainability.


Why OLIVE LEAF Foundation?

OLIVE LEAF Foundation's proud history and experience is based on social engagement processes and the transfer of knowledge, technical and administrative skills to community partners. Our expertise includes the management of sub grant funding with an intense commitment to governance and best practice. 


How is it managed?

An expert advisory panel will provide broad guidance annually on priority areas (technical and geographical). Accredited training will enable OLIVE LEAF Foundation to capacitate civil society and communities to sustain initiatives and move from vulnerability to self sufficiency. Partners will be invited to participate on project steering committees for oversight purposes.
