What people want most in this world is the opportunity to thrive. Not with handouts, but by using their own two hands.

Economic growth is the key to lifting communities from poverty to prosperity.

We give people the tools, education and resources to become entrepreneurs, so they can serve their own communities with improved health, decreased hunger, a safer environment and clean water.

We “add venture.”


(Before) I could live in a tiny room and not look at myself. I could just go to market and not think about myself. You don’t bother looking for yourself. Nobody knew me.

Now I have a name. Now they call me ‘Musawo’. Musawo is a Ugandan word for someone who treats people. I changed my life totally to fit with that name, Musawo. It has changed my life.
