The line between children who’ve been abandoned and vulnerable children on the brink is a thin one. The difference lies in whether a child has a champion in her life who is still willing to try – even if the weight of life is crushing the effort.
Many Foundation's core part is to seek in strengthen vulnerable families on the brink and provide them base level care. However, FCT orphan prevention focus centers on the sustainability of Education and Economic Development.
In the FCT Project vocabulary, ‘sustainable’ means shifting from pure aid funding to more market-based funding for Orphan care, creating job opportunities and lifting dignity in the process. Orphan care requires catalytic aid. But pure financial charity in perpetuity leads to destructive dependency, and drains dignity. Through GO Fund, we invest in job training, business ventures uniquely tied to our Orphan care mission.
Through our FCT (a unique impact investment managed by FCT), we help start and operate businesses that create dignified jobs among the poor, and generate profits to help Orphan Care.
FCT invests in football business to create jobs to keep families together, with profits going to help for local orphan care. Football businesses are our central model, and job creation is key to orphan prevention.
