Put your Adventure on Autopilot with our monthly, "Good Job Report."

Each month you will support a different job creation program in one country in Africa.

Feel connected, see your impact and learn more about who you're helping. We will email you all the details on how you made a difference.

Go behind-the-scenes as you give parents hope for a brighter future.

Who are we? A quick welcome from our co-founders:

Ending extreme poverty is hard. What if we come together to make it easier?

No parent should watch their baby die of hunger. Especially because solutions exist and they are affordable. But how do you get these solutions to communities? It starts by creating jobs locally.

Hand-outs help, but creating jobs builds thriving communities. So we decided to start a charity like no other. One that "adds" impact by supporting "ventures" that solve social problems (see what we did there?).

From well mechanics fixing broken wells to healthcare workers caring for newborns, each job you create is essential. You give parents the dignity of a paycheck and the community a skilled worker who has the expertise to solve social problems for good.

Thanks to the generosity of people like you, our movement has grown. Together, over 10,000 of us have helped create over 2,000 jobs in the last decade. Those people are now self-sufficient. Most importantly, they are heroes in their communities. Thanks to their hard work, they are helping 2 million neighbors each day.

But, we're just getting started. And with COVID-19 making things worse (especially for women), we need your help to scale quickly.

Would you consider joining us by becoming a monthly member so we can expand to help more people this year?

We hope you say yes.

"As a mom, it is important for me to make a positive impact in the world and show my children that you can make a difference. It is not enough to just care, you have to strive to make the change."

"I stumbled upon a video about the Adventure Project on Vimeo. I really liked what I saw and decided to sign up and become a monthly sponsor. I'm glad I did. The Adventure Project shows you what they are doing. I feel I'm making a small difference in the world thanks to The Adventure Project."

"The Adventure Project stands out to me because of how engaged the company makes me feel. I regularly receive photos and handwritten notes (such a rare thing these days) about what's going on behind the scenes and how grateful they are for my support, which makes me realize that I truly am helping impact the world through them."

"I decided to join The Collective because I'm drawn to the Adventure Project's mission of helping communities by offering opportunity (and with that so many tangible and intangible benefits). Their focused work and on-the-ground partnerships make me feel that my monthly donations are going to help individuals for the long-term."
