Akin Alliance: Helping NGOs Help Grassroots Youth

Where others might look at disadvantaged young people and see poverty, despair or a lack of opportunity, NGO Akin Alliance looks with a different lens. They see potential, an opportunity, and work with these young people to develop leadership skills and community spirit.

“Everyone in our organisation is unsalaried,” says Andy, from Akin Alliance. “We are just volunteers who come together for a common goal. So we love getting donated goods to run different events and save on our budget.”

We gave them a range of furniture to that end: outdoor chairs, lockers, desks and office furniture.

That really is our goal in serving NGOs. Nearly all have limited spending power and the gift of goods can slash a demanding budget, empowering them to use their financial resources on other needs. It’s one of the things we love about this work.
