Give a business grant
With little or no formal education, women living in countries like Burundi have few opportunities of earning an income to feed their children, find a home or build a future for themselves and their family. The Covid-19 pandemic has added to their struggles as food prices have risen.
Women like Violette face a life of extreme poverty. When her husband abandoned the family, Violette and her children often went to bed hungry. But since Violette started on our two-year livelihood programme, she hasn't looked back. Violette used her small business grant to plant banana crops, which have since led her to be able to employ local people, buy animals and bring benefits to the wider community.
You will see that I have changed. I have food to feed my family. I work for myself
Right now, you could fund a small business grant for a woman like Violette living in extreme poverty. Your return? Knowing that you’ve helped her to earn an income, feed herself and her children and gain the respect of the community.
How does it work?
You make your investment and we work with the local community to find the women who most need help.
