This is “economic development” as it ought to be practiced world wide. Their definition of helping people financially isn’t a hand out. Instead they seek to give people a method that produces meaningful income. They’ve helped about 10,000 families this year.
From Kickstart International:
Maurice & Josephine Simatei live in Eldoret, Western Kenya. They lost their land and livestock, but not their hope. A small business tool from KickStart International helped them build a better life for themselves and their children.
There’s is another story that shows the transforming power of opportunity. Not charity. Not handouts. Maurice & Josephine succeeded because of their own hard work. They have not only greatly increased their wealth, but also their own dignity and pride.
