Entrepreneurship is a powerful and effective solution to poverty

CREATES JOBS

With no work opportunities or income, the unemployed must rely on resourcefulness to find ways to provide for their families.

RELEASES CREATIVITY

An entrepreneur’s unique skill, talent, ingenuity and resourcefulness serves their community.

HELPS FAMILIES THRIVE

It’s the engine that breaks the cycle of poverty and provides for vulnerable children and orphans.

MULTIPLYING EFFECT

Entrepreneurs bring money into a community, and by doing business with others, wealth is created and economic renewal takes shape.

CREATES OPPORTUNITIES

Jobs are created by entrepreneurs and as a business grows, so does the opportunity to employ others.

IMPACTS IDENTITY

When an individual creates through entrepreneurship, inherent purpose, value and dignity are restored.

Why does entrepreneurship work?

When men and women in the developing world turn to entrepreneurship as a means to support themselves, the long-term impact affects their families, those they employ and their communities. When equipped with the tools and knowledge needed to grow a business, entrepreneurs are no longer dependent on handouts or government aid, and are empowered to thrive.
