You make your investment and we work with the local community to find the women who most need help.
Give a business grant
From a young age, many women in countries like Burundi don’t get access to formal education, meaning they have no way of earning an income to feed their children, find a home or build a future for themselves and their family.
Women like Violette face a life of extreme poverty. When her husband abandoned her she was forced to beg from neighbours 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 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.
