The foundations gesture is pegged on the principle of Cause Capitalism, which is when a for-profit organization chooses as its partner a non-profit organization; not as a gimmick but as a true sustainable partner.
“A better future for Kenya and Africa lies in empowering low-income and middle-income households to improve their cashflow. As Financially Fit a for profit company, we have partnered with the Goat Foundation our non-profit partner to give hope to the people of Kilifi by giving goats.” Said Financially Fit CEO, Steve Down

Each beneficiary receives a he and a she-goat from the givebacks. The carefully selected breeds can be able to produce milk for family consumption as well as for selling. Together, they are able to reproduce as well as be used for meat production hence improving the families cashflow.
