Why we need your help

Grassroots NGOs play a vital role in aid and development
Only 1.6% of international aid goes directly to local organisations 
We must strengthen local NGOs’ capacity to manage funds well so that they can become financially independent and sustainable. 
The issue
Grassroots NGOs are powerful actors in aid and development. In Syria, Nepal, Sierra Leone and countless other countries across the globe, millions of local NGOs are working tirelessly to rebuild the lives of people who have lost everything. 
They are usually first on the scene when disaster strikes, and strive to go on protecting vulnerable and disadvantaged people long after the world’s attention has moved on. Often their work is the most innovative, with potential to deliver long-term impact. But without robust financial management skills, they will struggle to achieve long-term sustainability.
The World Disasters Report 2015 revealed that just 1.6% of aid funding goes directly to local organisations. 
Investing in robust financial management skills is key to building local NGOs’ capacity to handle funding well and develop their sustainability. 
#MakeItCount: help local NGOs become financially sustainable 
We are proud to launch this exciting new campaign, which aims to:
Raise £5,000 for our bursary scheme by 25 December 2015
Raise awareness of the innovative, inspiring ways NGOs make their funds count, and what drives success and sustainability in their work
Raise awareness of the importance of building NGOs’ financial management capacity
Why raise money for Mango’s bursary scheme?
Through our bursary scheme, we offer heavily subsidised places on our training courses to local NGOs. By giving smaller NGOs access to Mango training through our bursary scheme, we set them on the road to financial independence and sustainability. 
We move closer to realising our vision of a world where everyone is confident that NGOs are making the most of their money.
In this inspiring video, Grace tells her story of the difference a Mango bursary made to Upendo, an organisation which works with orphans in Kilifi, Kenya:

Grassroots NGOs play a vital role in aid and development

Only 1.6% of international humanitarian aid goes to local organisations

Strengthening local NGOs’ capacity to manage funds well is the key to bringing about lasting change

The issue

In Syria, Nepal, Sierra Leone and countless other countries across the globe, grassroots NGOs are working all the time to help people help themselves.  

They are usually first on the scene when disaster strikes, and strive to go on protecting vulnerable and disadvantaged people long after the world’s attention has moved on. Often their work has the greatest potential to deliver long-term impact.

But without a sound grasp of financial management, they will struggle to achieve long-term sustainability.

The World Disasters Report 2015 revealed that just 1.6% of aid funding goes to local organisations. Investing in robust financial management skills will enable grassroots NGOs to make the most of their money and create more of it.
