The project is trying to solve the circle of poverty. In our cluster zone of West Bengal, India over 70% of the population live in extreme poverty and in Nothern Ghana over 50% of the population live in extreme poverty. Extreme poverty is classified by the World Bank as living under $1 a day.


By training people in a skill and setting up businesses, community members will be able to have a long tern sustainable income. This will allow them to forward plan, save, care for their children etc. We aim to give individuals access to affordable credit as well as improve their business and financial ability. These individuals become self-sufficient with a sustainable business model. This long term solution is of greater benefit than a hand out - it is a hand up.
