‘Giving back’ should be part of any organization’s goals, in our opinion. That is why, at Foundervine, we have been gathering funds from our workers and community to support mission-driven organizations in regaining their footing. COVID-19 had a terrible influence on the world in 2020, resulting in widespread lockdowns and government limitations. Small charities and social enterprises were particularly heavily struck in Ghana and Nigeria. As a result, Vine Fund 1 supports organizations that assist communities in these countries.
