Our ambition is simple. We invest in what people already have, in order to ensure that they have the determination and courage to change their lives for the better. Aid alone is not enough. We work to create a mix of grant funding and investment to help poor and marginalized people to really transform their lives. This is what Allavida strives to do and it’s what sets us apart from most development organizations. It’s a model that can influence development funding and practice and greatly increase the effectiveness of aid and investment.See more of our impact
Allavida has years of experience in training and supporting institutional development of civil societies by helping them to improve their sustainability through strengthening the capacity of local organizations.
Research and publishing play an important part in Allavida’s work, particularly in the fields of philanthropy, social investment and social enterprise.
Allavida is able to offer a changing ‘portfolio’ of community projects and small enterprises that need grant funds or social investment to foundations & social investors.
Allavida invests in long-term processes of change rather than short-term projects, addressing causes of poverty and marginalization rather than treating symptoms.
We recognizes the unique role of philanthropy in stimulating change through seed-funding and capacity building, and in creating foundations on which social and commercial investors can build.
Allavida supports people as the active drivers of change, building on and creating assets that can truly transform livelihoods and opportunities.
