Assisting Students and Families as they Rise out of Poverty



With over 15 years in partnership we are happy to say that we can see our support model working in action. Some of the young children we began supporting long ago are now college-educated young professionals who are living embodiments of our mission to empower young people to become confident and caring community members.


We help family guardians and young adults engage in income-generating business ventures. We do this by providing small business training, particularly in agriculture, and offering start-up capital to make sure planned microventures get launched. We then connect beneficiaries to micro-lenders and help them understand how loans work. From poultry projects, fish ponds, and horticulture crops, to brick-making initiatives and tailoring enterprises, we have helped hundreds of people start small businesses so they can better provide for themselves and their families.
