Frequently Asked Questions

What’s different about the Indigenous People’s Foundation? (IPF)

IPF is all about helping Indigenous Peoples solve their own problems, make their own choices, and live out their destinies.

How is IPF’s approach different?

We work with Indigenous leaders to identify systemic problems that can be solved with a project investment, rather than making donations that leave them dependent on donors.

What do you mean by “solved”?

We look for projects that lead to self-sufficiency and self-sustainability.

What is an example of such a project?

A remote village has a number of unemployed widows, homeless orphans, and there is a limited supply of clean drinking water and retail goods are scarce. A sample project would entail drilling a well, filtering and bottling the water, and arranging for the purchase and transport of retail goods at more attractive prices. Widows would be engaged to house and feed the orphans, who would become employed selling bottled water and retail goods. The village elders would ensure the fair treatment of the widows and orphans in the marketplace. Excess funds can be used to engage tutors for schooling the Widows and Orphans.

What about agriculture?

Another project involves teaching people to operate successful chicken farms. Initially, they harvest and sell eggs, and sell meat birds. Over time, they raise the grains and other feed that the chickens require. Along the way, children are taught to farm, care for animals, sell products, and operate a business. Excess profits can be used to loan money to start additional chicken farming operations.

Does IPF have any geographic, cultural, racial, or religious restrictions?

No.
