Over 2 million euros raised and big plans for 2014: Our annual report at a glance
Thursday, February 13, 2014

2013 was a banner year for the Foundation. We raised record funding, breaking for the first time the 2 million euro barrier.

Despite the economic uncertainty, funds raised for projects more than doubled year-on-year.

Here are some of the highlights:

 

  • We contributed to, initiated and/or developed 24 projects across 15 countries.
  • This work benefitted 353,007 people, primarily the poorest and most vulnerable in their communities.
  • We've iniatiated a new data-rich approach to assess our projects, resulting in new funding from one major donor, Misean Cara.
  • We have approved a Strategic Plan covering 2014-2017 which commits our staff and partners to invest more time and resources in developing tools for training and planning.
  • To further increase the funding mix, we will turn to social media and will add a “donate-online” option on our website.
