By providing these artisans and young entrepreneurs with micro-loans, we will be able to jumpstart their businesses and make sure that the creative industries are prioritized in Northern Uganda during and post-pandemic.
Ending Extreme Poverty with Artisans
The artisan sector has massive potential to contribute to the end of extreme poverty as it is the second-largest employer around the globe in low-income communities after agriculture, worth over $32 billion every year (World Bank).
We are committed to supporting the beneficiaries of this new program through business management, marketing workshops, financial literacy education, and other entrepreneurial skills training.
Through specialized industry training, we will ensure the micro-loans have the biggest impact possible for these entrepreneurs and their communities.
YOUR IMPACT WILL LAST GENERATIONS
By donating towards financial resources for global entrepreneurs, your impact will last for generations to come as we address barriers for small businesses to thrive in economically disadvantaged communities.
