Help break the cycle of poverty and boost economic development by providing women with business management training and financial assistance to start and grow their own businesses.
Poverty remains widespread in Sierra Leone—with more than 60% of the population living on less than US $1.25 a day. Unemployment and illiteracy levels remain high, particularly among youth. Tens of thousands of youths and adults struggle to find a meaningful existence and are living below the poverty line. Sierra Leones' youth desperately needs help and a viable path to self-sufficiency.
Greater Good Charities partners with Develop Africa to develop an initiative to help break the cycle of poverty by microfinancing loans to empower women-owned small businesses. This project provides foundational training in business management and entrepreneurship as well as business capital to women entrepreneurs. This project enables them to start or expand their businesses, become self-reliant and also employ others. This will provide women with the opportunity and the assistance that they need to break free from poverty.
You can help. Just $25 will provide one woman with the necessary training materials and supplies such as a calculator, ledger, and pens, to help their business succeed.
