Self – Financing Initiatives

Self – Financing Initiatives

Sector

Overview

The Organization clearly understands that funding is always hard to come by. At times, a funding partner may experience challenges at different times of the funding partnership. This situation may arise at the beginning, midterm or at the end of a project phase.

 

When such a case occurs, SACDEP Management may feel the need to continue funding the project internally until the objectives are fully met. This sector thus provides the resources to run the projects when such situation arises. This is made possible through surplus generated by the Agriculture and Development Training Centre by holding conferences for external guests.

 

The mandate of the sector

On the above realization, a training a Conference Centre was established 14 years ago as part of the Internal Fundraising Mechanisms. To date more than 6 projects have had continuity when funding ceased to exist.

 

Operated as a low surplus unit, Community members (adults, youth) who have a noble idea and are unable to run meetings or seminars may use the facility. Such groups will indicate financial inability to pay in relatively expensive hotels SELF-FINANCING INITIATIVES SECTORand related Centres. The SACDEP Agriculture and Development Training Centre (ADTC) will offer space at highly subsidized costs.

 

The Centre offer fully equipped training and conference facilities and has a 64 bed capacity.

 

Beautiful lawns and gardens offer a relaxed environment

 

Environmental Conscious

 

The Centre is on a 2 hectare piece of land. The site was initially unutilised land inhabited by velvet monkeys and over 10 species of birds.

 

As an environmentally conscious Organization, the animals have been maintained and protected within the compound. So, staff and visitors coexist with the monkeys, birds, fish and other small domestic animals. Over 50 indigenous tree species found within SACDEP have been labeled as an information guide to those touring the Centre or undertaking learning activities within the center.
