We believe that entrepreneurs are the key to the future.
In countries like Uganda the entrepreneurs are the ones who are identifying opportunities, overcoming problems, building businesses, creating jobs, and transforming their communities. Our job is to find ways to help them do so, such as by providing funds training.
We believe the best way to do this is by supporting the activities of Partners Worldwide, and in particular its Uganda Enterprise Fund.
Partners Worldwide is a faith based organization which connects business people and other professionals in North America with small entrepreneurs in developing countries for the purpose of finding business and market based solutions to poverty. Its Uganda Enterprise Fund provides funds for micro-entrepreneur and small business loans and for entrepreneurial training programs.
