Desert Bloom initiative is designed to support outstanding Non for Profit Organisations (NGOs), Activists, social movements, social entrepreneurs and outstanding individuals in Africa. These set of individuals and organisations do great work and also improve the lives of people in their own spheres. We support them by telling their stories and where applicable, hosting their contents on all our online platforms for free (website, social media, blogs, and weekly newsletter). By documenting their stories, we gain insights into how they operate, the challenges they face and the opportunities for potential collaboration.

For such individuals and organisations, being visible and connected to a wide range of audience both online and offline offer a lot of positive benefits such as promoting their cause, attracting volunteers, connecting to funders, government and other large network of organisations who would want to collaborate with them.  This initiative amplifies their voice online by telling their stories.

With our knowledge of French and English languages, organisations in Anglophone and Francophone Africa are given equal opportunity to host their content on all our platforms and share their stories.
