PARSA

Founded in 1996, Physiotherapy and Rehabilitation Support for Afghanistan (PARSA) is an NGO working directly with the disadvantaged people of Afghanistan. Grass root support has allowed PARSA to be highly creative in program development and to take the lead in the NGO community advocating the initiation of change in social protection programs that serve the disabled and destitute, women “heads of households” and orphans. 18 years later, PARSA is staffed by a highly dedicated team of Afghans and internationals who have a long-term commitment to the rehabilitation of Afghanistan. As a part of our list of accomplishments, PARSA has launched a nationwide rebirth of the Afghan Scouts program, instituted the Healthy Afghan Child program into the national orphanage system, and created a “fair trade” model of marketing for Afghan women’s businesses called “Trade Afghan”. PARSA programs resonate with and support Afghan communities of today, as they heal and take ownership of their future.

Mitraniketan

In the mountains of southern India, there are many rural communities where people still struggle to support their families. Since 1956, Mitraniketan has worked to help these communities break the cycle of poverty, exploitation, and lack of opportunities. Its work has had powerful impacts over the decades, and today Mitraniketan’s work in supporting community development and individual empowerment is a model to other NGOs around the world.

Mitraniketan – “The Abode of Friends” – is a non-profit organization founded by K. Viswanathan in his home village of Vellanad in the state of Kerala. Its focus has been in providing development-oriented education projects to empower disadvantaged children, youth, rural women, and marginal farmers. Education of children, particularly those from socially and economically disadvantaged tribal backgrounds, is Mitraniketan’s primary focus, as those children will in turn serve and support their families and their communities. Mitraniketan’s core educational principle is that rural communities and society as a whole can best be promoted through the total development of individuals, and all of Mitraniketan’s programs seek to support this vision.

By supporting this fund, you will join Mitraniketan continue to serve the next generation of disadvantaged children, and expand its capacity to support rural livelihoods and community development. In particular, donations help sustain Mitraniketan’s scholarship fund. Students are not charged and are exempted from payment entirely.

China Grassroots NGO Support Fund

As the majority of donated funds in China go to government-organized NGOs and local governments, many community organizations find themselves in difficult financial situations. In addition to the 450,000 officially-registered social organizations, foundations and non-profits, there are several million independent and innovative grassroots organizations that are self-organized to provide a wide spectrum of much-needed social services to their communities. The fund is established to provide support for those grassroots organizations which otherwise cannot obtain financial backing through fund raising efforts to meet the unfulfilled needs of their communities.

China Development Brief Fund

Civil society in China has long been marginalized. Grassroots civil society organizations established by Chinese individuals seeking to make a difference have a difficult time gaining legal status and funding. These include nonprofits/NGOs protecting the environment, serving the disabled, working to prevent domestic violence, providing legal aid for migrant workers, working with HIV-infected communities, helping children in impoverished areas attend school, and many others. Few Chinese know what nonprofits and NGOs are, and the government views them with suspicion. But civil society organizations are essential to a well-functioning, stable and equitable society. They provide channels for citizens to participate in their communities and influence policies. They provide services to marginalized groups and others in need. They act as watchdogs supervising the behavior of governments and corporations.

Synergy Social Ventures

At Synergy Social Ventures, we believe that social ventures have the potential to solve social and environmental problems. However, in order to realize their potential, they need support in building strong and effective organizations. Social ventures are for-profit, non-profit or hybrid organizations that use innovative business models to solve social and environmental problems. They are characterized by:

  • Innovation: Social ventures use new and creative ways to solve existing problems, such as creating new products and services or applying existing technology to different contexts. Social ventures are changing the way we think about and solve problems around the world.
  • Long-term Solutions: Instead of relying on short-term fixes, social ventures target the root of the problem. They choose models that create significant lasting improvements and transform lives.
  • Financial Sustainability: Social ventures use revenue-generating business models to become financially self-sustaining in order to reduce reliance on unpredictable donor funding.
