Advocacy is the most important strategy employed by Bina Foundation. It has the capacity to ensure that interventions are sustainable. Advocacy wins the support of stakeholders (beneficiaries and target audiences) towards accepting change that is required, thereby converting stakeholders from onlookers/victims to activists whether they are individuals or organizations, community-based or faith-based, political or apolitical, nongovernmental or governmental.
Governments at all levels have the primary responsibility to cater for the people’s needs. The government has more resources than any individual organization and can achieve great results if all available resources are utilized judiciously. Hence, Bina Foundation plays an important role of holding government agencies accountable and demands that its responsibilities to the people are fulfilled.
Beneficiaries of Bina Foundation’s programs are usually from poor socio-economic backgrounds and lack major criteria for having successful life outcomes. It becomes imperative to provide material support in the form of nutrition, medical services and other forms of material support while permanent and more sustainable solutions are explored. Bina Foundation does not consider service delivery as the ultimate solution to problems faced by beneficiaries, but as an intermediary measure.
Bina Foundation values collaborations that result in positive change in the society. The need for organizations to establish linkages and explore avenues to work for common goals is widely recognized. Networking ensures that development interventions are effective by engaging all stakeholders, identifying individual areas of strength, pooling resources from diverse backgrounds and managing relationships between organizations and resources to produce desired outcomes.
Capacity development is improving the ability and competence of an individual, organization and institutions to perform certain tasks. Bina Foundation directly provides vocational skills and adult literacy education to persons living with disability. Equipment and facilities that are tailored to meet the specific needs of beneficiaries such as Braille machines and books are provided to facilitate capacity development. Support is also provided to beneficiaries who are admitted to advanced institutions of learning
