Jacana Business Empowerment News

July 2015

Dear subscriber subscriber,

Now for something completely: Good news from the Tax authorities and more in this newsletter.


Donation of Haëlla Foundation!

Haëlla Foundation funded Jacana for the basic training of Zambian entrepreneurs. Jacana will conduct this year four basic trainings and Jacana will select from these trainings the most promising entrepreneurs for an intensive program. These entrepreneurs will receive an individual guidance to increase their business.

We thank Haëla Foundation for their donation. 


Arrival in Zambia

Dinie and Rik arrived on 23rd of June in Lusaka, they travelled from there to their new home. The staff of Group Farm project in Chisamba welcomed them warmly. For now the Jacana-Zambia office will be located on this project site along the Great North road and Dinie and Rik life there as well.

Good news from TAX authorities

Jacana has been awarded with a ANBI certificate from the Dutch Tax Authorities. Therefore Dutch donors can benefit from tax deductions up to 52%. See: http://jacana.help/about/anbi

Already 65% (€ 19,491.-) of the start-up costs have been raised by crowd-funding. Big thanks to the many individual donors and the Haëlla Foundation who all believe in the Jacana strategy.

We believe the remaining 35% will be raised soon, therefore Dinie and Rik already moved to Zambia and are opening the Jacana-Zambia office at this moment. Every small donation is welcome. Thank you.
