Reciprocation is embedded in our local cultures through different forms and norms. Tammey commits 10 – 20 % of its net income to create a prospect for social reciprocation; it supports inspiring initiatives and new practices for youth development and creating diverse spaces for youth role within their communities. Yet, Tammey is not confined to one form of commitment, it is non- thematic. Tammey invests the funds in different venues and forms guided by its vision and mission. Through these funds, it believes beneficiaries will pay it forward to their families or communities, or societies or neighbors etc… in different forms.
