The Idea

With only $2,500 Village Enterprise will start 10 businesses in East Africa; providing funding, mentoring and training to 30 business owners. Sustainable incomes generated by these micro enterprises will lift over 150 people out of extreme poverty!

The Specifics

Village Enterprise successfully equips people living in extreme poverty with the resources to create sustainable, income-generating businesses. By providing start-up capital, business training, and mentoring to small business groups along with organizing business groups into larger savings groups, Village Enterprise provides people living in rural East Africa with the necessary tools to lift themselves out of extreme poverty.

Our businesses generate sustainable income for daily needs, while the savings groups ensure that some of that income is set aside the future, thus ensuring better nutrition, improved health, increased education for children, higher-quality housing, individual empowerment and a sense of hope now and in the future.

Take time to learn more about Village Enterprise....equipping lives of so many families living in extreme poverty by GIVING funding, mentoring and business training to create successful and sustainable income for small business groups. VE empowers individuals who are all too often forgotten, because they live far from big cities where money/banking is available. Hope and dignity are necessary for all people.

If anyone is unsure, I can vouch for Village Enterprise being a wonderful organization with hard working incredibly talented people behind the helm. I interned there, and the passion for the cause and commitment to meeting goals impressed me. The organization is accountable; they do what they say they will do.

I highly recommend voting for this project; Village Enterprise is more than a charity, its a non-profit that empowers communities by giving them the resources to bring themselves out of poverty.
