Our Mission, Our Passion

“Overcoming poverty is not a gesture of charity, but an act of kindness.” ~ Nelson Mandela

The I61 Foundation is a non-profit organisation connecting funders with impactful community projects. We are based in Mauritius, with reach into Africa. Our mission is to identify non-profit organisation (NPO) projects that align with our values and connect them with funders who share our passion for positive change. Our compliance team carefully vets all parties involved, and we monitor and evaluate each project to ensure the outcomes are effective and sustainable.

Our vision is to transform how funders and NPOs collaborate to create lasting impact in vulnerable communities.

Our Governance

We recognise that strong governance is essential for NPOs to operate effectively, maintain donor trust and ensure that resources are used efficiently and ethically. We thoroughly vet every NPO and funder registered with us, supporting funders to donate confidently and NPOs to receive securely.

Our Impact

We go beyond moving funding to where it’s needed. We foster long term partnerships built on the foundation of trust, transparency and accountability to make a meaningful difference in the lives of those who need it the most.

Our Areas of Impact

We bring hope to those in need by supporting projects that restore, renew and rebuild vulnerable communities.

By focusing our efforts on the four critical areas that significantly impact vulnerable communities, we strive to empower them, fostering their resilience and hope for a brighter future.
