a. The general public. 75% of our funding comes from individuals who hear about our message through our marketing channels. The remainder comes from corporate sponsorship and internal profit generation (such as fundraising activities and sale of our branded merchandise).

e. Photographers. Photographers typically spend 40 hours a year to profile our projects. They are selected on a competitive basis but often donate free hours to capture specific projects and events. We would like the ‘photo blog’ (see below) to inspire professional photographers to get involved.
f. Design students. We sell branded merchandise (t-shirts, caps and bags) in our online shop as part of our fundraising. The designs and illustrations are donated by designers and design students. We would like the site to attract further contributions in this area. An online competition platform would be ideal.
