To support organizational transparency, we publish a monthly account of Robertsport Community Work’s income and expenditures on our blog.

After paying for equipment and supplies, our projects’ revenue go directly to the Community Fund, a pool that funds micro-enterprise projects that support the principles of Robertsport Community Works — positively impacting the Robertsport community without adversely impacting nearshore ecosystems.

Projects identified and approved by Robertsport Community Works’ Community Board receive hands-on support to develop and implement their detailed business plans. Community Fund recipients are required to attend regular group meetings to share and problem solve with the support of the Community Board, with graduated repayment plans replenishing the Community Fund. Additional project financing over and above available Community Fund resources are sourced through grants and local microfinance institutions.

Projects funded with seed money from the Community Fund include the Robertsport Community Campsite, the monthly Community Beach Cleanup, and the Mama Liberia Sewing Co-op.
