Bartercard: creating sustainable partnerships in the community
When Ian McKay, CEO of humanitarian group Noble Endeavours, wanted a grant proposal written for his organisation’s latest sustainable education project, he knew a little creativity was needed. How he turned to Bartercard to help finance the work is an innovative example of trade dollars being used effectively.
Noble Endeavours has, since 2008, helped impoverished communities in Mindanao, the Philippines. Working in the ancestral lands of the island, the project delivers sustainable agriculture, education, community and health services for villages recognised as amongst the most marginalised and poorest in the region.
