La Fondation Jighi is an operating foundation. The money raised by La Fondation Jighi is spent directly on programs, and not as grants to other charitable organizations.
The majority of La Fondation Jighi ’s charitable work is performed and implemented by our staff and partners on the ground. We operate programs mostly in West Africa and particularly in the Ivory Coast where the headquarter is based. We believe that our work has significant impact in this part of the world. Indeed, our impact is measurably felt in a wide range of issue areas, including economic development, health and wellness, economic empowerment for youth, technology-driven entreprenorship, Internet economies, application development, etc...
In cases where we support others in their own philanthropic endeavors, the money is used to convene these partners to develop their programs and commitments, rather than directly implement projects.
You should be the changement that you want to see in this world.
