Gathering of Kindness

The Hush Foundation initiative. In 2015, Mary Freer and Dr Catherine Crock AM (Hush Foundation) created Gathering of Kindness, after identifying the direct correlation between organisational negativity and staff wellbeing and effectiveness. The Gathering of Kindness aims to redress this by building, nurturing and instilling a culture of kindness throughout the healthcare system. The GOK 2016 invited 100 participants – actors, healthcare clinicians, artists, musicians and innovators to imagine that kindness, trust and respect were the fundamental components of the healthcare system, and that bullying was unacceptable. Collectively they proposed a better way forward. gatheringofkindness.org/

Hunting the poachers

Wildlife crime is sweeping the planet. The illegal trafficking of wildlife is now one of the world’s largest criminal industries, with repeated links to terrorism networks. Modern-day poachers have evolved and routinely utilise military tactics and equipment to kill high-target species, such as elephants, rhinos and gorillas. The non-profit International Anti-Poaching Foundation (IAPF) has established a Ranger Training Academy to instruct wildlife rangers, both men and women, in military tactics to hunt the poachers. The legendary primatologist Jane Goodall is an IAPF patron. Unmanned drones are refitted with night-vision technology to track intruders. The IAPF is now registered in four separate countries across southern and east Africa, and the rangers help protect the animals within nearly three million hectares of wilderness every day. www.iapf.org

You can’t prosper as a country unless you educate girls

Dr Kakenya Ntaiya has set up a school where parents must agree that their girls will not undergo the tribal ritual of circumcision and will not be married before they finish school. The Kakenya Center for Excellence has already transformed the lives of more than 230 young women in Kenya Africa through education. Some of the girls have studied in Australia and directors were told about it this week at an Ashurst luncheon- an inspiring story  including how Kakenya agreed to have the circumcision ritual so other girls would not have to undergo it. https://www.kakenyasdream.org

An emergency fund for NFP’s

Open Road Alliance has launched a low-interest loan to offer NFP’s access to working capital and credit lines understanding that the goal isn’t just money making, but to benefit society at large. Organizations can now apply for assistance and receive a below-market rate loan with a maximum two-year window for return. The fund will basically cover three destabilizing scenarios: delays in expected funding (because some funder or investor had a management hiccup), organizational misfortune (like a warehouse fire or key staffer getting seriously ill), or Acts of God or Economics (devastating weather, devaluating currency issues, or shifting governmental policies). Open Road is encouraging other foundations and impact investors to develop their own funding mechanisms to better serve the needs of nonprofits and social enterprises working for impact. www.fastcompany.com/40534806/when-nonprofits-have-a-financial-emergency-theres-now-a-fund-to-bail-them-out
