Given the positive impact that the MOVE livelihood model has made on the quality of life of the communities we have worked with, BPF aims to scale the innovation to impact more lives across the country. Our current target is to reach a minimum of 1,000 economically deprived persons by 2014.
MOVE to Prosperity
We would be happy to provide audited accounts of the last three years and soft copies of our manuals, publications and toolkits upon request.
Best Practices Foundation was registered under the Karnataka Societies Registration Act (1960) in April 1999. Donors may avail of 80G tax exemption. BPF also has FCRA permission to receive donations from overseas.
Our livelihood model MOVE is a business skills programme designed to enable the illiterate, assetless poor to start and sustain their own micro-enterprises. It has shown a 40-50 per cent success rate in raising individuals out of poverty. It has also been instrumental in boosting purchasing power, living standards and the economy of communities as a whole.
BPF partners with corporate organisations looking to create a larger social impact by initiating or expanding their CSR programmes. Our partnerships facilitate access to MOVE market education that can be adapted to practically any service or product. In addition, specific strategies can be developed to enable rural participants to penetrate urban markets.
Costs for continued support over the next five years are as follows:
