At project field level such include, brick-making, chicken farming, vegetable and fruit marketing, bee-keeping, English teaching, paper-flower making, paid health services subsidizing those for poor, handicrafts, education,volunteer tourism and micro-credit schemes At the donor level there are programs involving direct sales, with charitable spin-off, real estate schemes with charitable components, and sale of imported art goods with profits returning to projects.
