Donations play a key role in our business model. First, they create equity that allows us to access commercial funds. Every dollar, euro, pound or shilling donated to NEEMA HEEP leverages about three (3) times the same amount in commercial capital - capital that we direct low income families. Donations also enable NEEMA HEEP to maintain ownership over its programs, even as they attract investments from other sources. That ownership is critical to our mission. It ensures that our programs remain committed to serving the very poor in our society.
