100% SUSTAINABLE

100% SUSTAINABLE


 

OUR SUSTAINABILITY MODEL

Our mission is to establish operations that deliver education in developing countries, but don't require ongoing fundraising to create change.  Our goal is to become operationally self-sufficient, run by girls who have been educated and trained through Create Change volunteer opportunities, scholarships, internships and paid positions. Equipped with education and experience, they will be empowered to manage operations and direct fundraising initiatives to support development and management of further educational programming.  It’s a truly sustainable model.

Operational Sustainability


As we train and empower girls and youth to become leaders, we create a consistent stream of dedicated staff and volunteers to lead the organization.

TURNING GIRLS AND YOUTH INTO LEADERS

Our goal is to become operationally self-sufficient, empowering students to eventually manage and run Create Change’s operations.  In time, we plan to hand our Northern Ghana operation over to the girls that we have educated and trained to run it, so they can lead this modelinto the future, enabling Create Change to recreate its model elsewhere.

SOCIAL ENTERPRISEs THAT TRAIN GIRLS 

In addition to serving as training schools for high school graduates interested in learning concrete skills and acquiring extensive knowledge on how to run a business, our training schools act as social enterprises where any profit made is channeled back into girls’ education.  We establish a variety of training schools that run as small businesses, sustaining local communities and extending Create Change’s impact over the long term.

STEP 1:
LAUNCH ENTERPRISES

We start enterprises to provide girls with skills & business training, which create a consistent stream of revenue.
