Individual Partnership“Be the change that you want to see in the world.” – Margaret Mead
Too often in life, we wait around for someone else to instigate the changes we want to see. We doubt our own ability and become paralyzed to action, thinking either we are not solely capable of bringing the changes about, or that someone else will get around to it.
But this inability to act alone is all in our head. Because history bears witness that the most extraordinary things were done by the most ordinary people.
So if we have ever wished to be able to do something for the greater good, the time could not be more right. We don’t have to make radical changes for our efforts to count, because the small changes make a big difference. Garden of life strategy is to match each children’s home with a partnering organization or Individual that can provide long-term encouragement, affirmation and financial support. Each of our children have been orphaned — separated by death or abandonment from their parents — and are at immediate, high risk of sexual and economic exploitation. Our partnership model provides Garden of life primary source for children’s home funding. With this model, Garden of life enters into an agreement with a partnering organization or Individual willing to accept responsibility for the home’s monthly share of budget. Garden of life then works to foster the relationship between the partner and the home, facilitating updates, personal communications and visits to the homes. Garden of life also works to recruit and retain donors to participate in other funding projects. These include both non-recurring (e.g. activities, equipment, capital improvements and expenditures) and ongoing (e.g. staff salaries, post-secondary education support, vocational training) expenses. When possible, Garden of life gives donors specific projects they can “own.” Garden of life also provides photos and/or videos to promote the need and to demonstrate the effects of the partner’s financial support. Garden of life seeks corporate, foundation and individual donations for special projects, capital expenditures and improvements, and for contributions to the general fund. Garden of life sets aside 12% of every dollar donated for shared use, underwriting nearly every aspect of the organization’s budget — from staff salaries and travel expenses to medical emergencies and government fees — and nearly eliminating the need for expensive fundraising.

CORPORATE PARTNERSHIPS“Sustainability, social equality and the environment are now business problems. And corporate leaders can't depend on governments to solve them...” – Peter Senge, Founder, Society for Organisational Learning
Real and long-lasting change can only be ushered in when all of us come together to make it possible. Inclination towards social responsibility and contribution to sustainable development is fast becoming the mark of distinction for leading corporate and top brands. Corporate Social Responsibility is the continuous commitment of a corporate body to improve community well being through discretionary business practices and ethical contributions of corporate resources. Mallen Baker—writer, speaker and CSR expert—defines CSR as a strategic act, “a way companies manage the business processes to produce an overall positive impact on society.” Integrating social, environmental and ethical responsibilities into the governance of businesses ensures their long term success, competitiveness and sustainability. CSR initiatives facilitate corporate to build a dominant brand that reverberates with their key stakeholders—customers, employees, government and general public.
Garden Of Life establishes partnerships and builds networks with national and international development institutions with the prime objective to connect to their domain expertise, resources, and strengths, with its own developmental initiatives undertaken at the grassroots level.
Along with the expansion and strengthening of existing programmes, Alliances at Smile, focuses also on bringing innovations in its programmes through this association with the developmental actors of the world.
Many prominent development agencies, donor organizations, academic institutions, confederations and associations across the globe have joined hands with Garden Of Life to further its development initiatives.
