As part of the Accelerator, Do Good Social Impact Foundation successfully raised $6,038 from 99 unique individual donors to support their project, “Empower Makoko Fishing Community.”
“We’re thrilled to have Do Good Social Impact Foundation as part of our community. Do Good Social Impact Foundation has met our rigorous vetting standards for trust and community support, and we’re committed to providing tools, training, and support as they learn, grow and become more effective,” said Alix Guerrier, CEO of GlobalGiving. “GlobalGiving donors value the opportunity to support nonprofits like Do Good Social Impact Foundation, knowing that they’ll get regular updates about how their donations are put to work.”
“Makoko is a huge slum in the heart of Lagos, Nigeria. It is also a fishing community, this project would empower the fishing community in the area with better equipment to increase their fishing yield and boost their income. Equipping these fishermen with better equipment would boost fishing and thus stimulate the local economy. Helping the Makoko Fishing community would alleviate poverty, provide food, and increase decent work and economic growth”, said Stanley Ogbuchi, project leader at Do Good Social Impact Foundation.
