Providing access to literacy in Zambia
Our Founder is passionate about Educating Minds and Changing Lives literally. Since 2006 10 % of our profits from A&B benefit The Henry Morrison Limula Foundation.
For over 15 years, our founder Jennifer Nash has worked out of pocket on this project; initially as a passion project now as a registered Charity aka Social Business Enterprise Non Profit Organisation (SBENGO) which she founded as part of her mission to deliver educational and social services through an advocacy vision to save public infrastructure, spaces and places such as libraries and community hubs in Zambia.
The goal is to raise funds and awareness about the foundation's cause and build its reputation. So far she has written a 48-page Standard Operating Procedure [SOP] legacy paper which includes a crisis management plan, a detailed outline of a 5-year PR and marketing campaign strategy of how the foundation can achieve its goal to increasing literacy levels in Zambia. This includes setting KPI's and Social Return on Investment targets.
The Foundation's mission is enshrined in the four SDGS, 4, 8,9 & 11 as a bare minimum benchmark. Some of the goals already achieved were as a result of executing tactics such as The Gift That Keeps Giving Campaign, which is in partnership with the Global Ignite Vision Awards, [G.I.V.A] means, 10 % of all GIVA proceeds benefit the HML Foundation. In 2021 alone we raised £270 in donations.
While the Foundation has also introduced non-donor dependent income generating initiatives to ensure that HML is self sustainable; in addition to this; individual donation activities and grant sourcing, government contracts and recruitment of volunteers all form part of our funding framework. To this end, we have seamlessly transitioned HML to building capacity with stakeholders thus realising a healthy triple bottom line of People. Planet. Purpose. Our Mission is to Educate Minds & Change Lives through our strategic Vision to use 'A Drop Of Ink To Make A Million Think.
Thought Leaders are informed opinion leaders and the go-to experts in their field of expertise. They are trusted sources who move and inspire people to innovate ideas into reality and know and show how to replicate their success. Denise Brosseau
