Kaima's economic model assumes that all profits will be reinvested to help sustain the farm's pedagogic mission. Kaima exemplifies a new generation of social business with the intention of improving society through a sustainable venture in which beneficiaries contribute to the financial health of the organization. A number of social businesses are well conceived but poorly executed in that they do not take into account that income rarely compensates fully for expenses.
While Kaima is strategically decreasing our dependence on external resources, the involvement of local business and international philanthropic partnerships is critical to our dreams, plans and operations, particularly as we seek to add new programs and farms to our growing educational network and cultivate important realtionships with Israel's eucational authorities who are begining to release budget in spport of our work.
Ideally, we believe that support for the project should be derived as follows:
Financial participation of governmental, municipal, and other NGO partners
In-kind and philanthropic support
