Valcare is an Impact Funding Platform that believes that the answer to social change is collaboration. We connect with communities to determine their real needs, assets and potential first and then collaborate with various stakeholders to coordinate a holistic and sustainable impact.

To strengthen our strategic intervention approach, we manage investment funding in carefully selected projects and nonprofit organisations.
