SVP is excited to announce our two new Investees! Please meet:
Digi-Bridge addresses unequal access to digital technology and skill acquisition (21st century education tools). This inequality is being tackled through course work offerings, consultancy in schools, and advocacy work. Digi-Bridge is committed to providing the highest quality enrichment experiences to the K-8 students they serve. Fifty percent of the children and families served receive the programming through scholarships. The tuition from the other 50% creates a revenue stream for the nonprofit.
Fashion and Compassion empowers women overcoming poverty and injustice through providing part-time, transitional employment in a safe, encouraging, and community-oriented environment. The women make and sell high-end jewelry at a F&C site or at the site of a sponsor organization providing soft work skills to women, many of whom have little or no legitimate work experience. They connect the women who work in the jewelry projects with further resources as necessary. F&C is self-funded through the sales of the jewelry. Each quarter, F&C makes a donation back to each of their nonprofit partners.
