In order to maximize impact, Belay focuses on three types of projects: Business As Mission (BAM), Transformational Development, and Training.
The goal of Belay Global's Business As Mission (BAM) is to create for-profit businesses that will have a major impact on a community, empowering and equipping the local population with the skills and education they need to carry the business on into the future. TDPs create new income streams and businesses that sustain life, add value to a community, create jobs, and can lower the cost of living for local residents.[button link="http://belayglobal.info/business/" color="orange" newwindow="yes"] Click to learn more[/button]
Growth in a local economy boosts all of the residents, and the end result is a community with better access to food, water, education, and wellness, all without feeling like they were handed something from the West. TDP is charity with dignity. Nobody feels pitied because they are a part of a successful business or project that brings greater wellness to their community. These are projects that people can be proud to be a part of creating and sustaining.[button link="http://belayglobal.info/transformational-development/" color="orange" newwindow="yes"] Click to learn more[/button]
