Built to Create Impact
We are Ugandan led and our 100% Ugandan team leads our implementation and key decision making processes. Our small US based team exists to equip us with what we need to create impact. By working together, we are raising the bar of what's possible in rural economic development. Our goal isn't to be the best, but by doing so we hope we can move the sector towards more resilient outcomes. Our communities deserve nothing less.
We Are Experienced
We have fourteen years of experience fighting extreme poverty. We are a Ugandan team who know our communities better than anyone. We were born in these communities and we lean on that experience to provide the most relevant and impactful services possible.
We Are Effective
Thousands have benefited from our programs. A growing body of research proves that graduation approaches like ours create sustainable impact. Because we invest deeply into the whole person beyond their economic challenges, we see our graduates consistently outperform industry-wide averages. We believe that there is no better way to end poverty than through a program like ours.
We Are Efficient
We deploy funding to what works. Our Clients generate more income than what we spend in real time.
