How we operate
Mission Bambini Switzerland settles its goals based on two different operational models: financing local partners and directly implementing them
Financing local partners
Mission Bambini Switzerland is a Foundation that finances and sustains projects all over the world in favor of children with difficulties. The requests for support are analyzed through a series of articulated parameters, for examples: the problem’s urgency and gravity index regarding the projects’ issues, the number of recipient children, the coherence of the intervention in relation to the needs and level of sustainability.
The sustained projects must have coherent goals with the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) defined by the ONU and subscribed by its Members, in particular: to reduce child mortality, to eliminate starvation and extreme poverty, to advantage education’s access.
Not under any circumstances Mission Bambini fully covers the costs intended for a project. The Foundation favors partners that show independent fundraising abilities. The progress of sustained projects is monitored and valued by the periodical reports sent by their responsibles and through the monitoring missions in loco.
Direct projects’ implementation
Alongside the financial model, the Foundation is also developing a direct implementation activity for its projects abroad. The direct implemented projects are designed by the Foundation, in partnership with other NGOs as well. The Foundation requires institutional Donors, as for example the European Union, the co-financing for these kind of projects, applying for funds or for financing as corporation or as partner.
The additional value of Mission Bambini
Independently from the operative model adopted, thanks to the collaboration of Mission Bambini Italia, Mission Bambini Switzerland is the messenger of an additional value given by the online good practices, the exchange of experiences, contamination between different solutions for similar problems. Furthermore thanks to the expertise matured in favor to children in difficulties, the Foundation proposes itself to others - entirely supplying - as supplier of resources and warrant of reaching a major impact. The investor can reach and overcome its goals underwriting economical resources with Mission Bambini and benefiting from the monitoring and valuation work made by the Foundation.
