“Before Village Enterprise, I did not know how I was going to feed my children each day. Now I can afford to buy them better meals and they are in school. My fields are full of kales and I have money saved to buy more hybrid seeds for next season’s planting.” – Jonah Isindu, Kenyan father of five
Over the past year, you have helped make the difference in the lives of over 6,600 people like Jonah – hard-working people who are lifting themselves out of extreme poverty. You have provided them with seed capital, business and financial literacy training, and mentoring to start over 2,200 sustainable businesses. You have given them and their children hope and a brighter future.
For 25 years, Village Enterprise has given East African fathers and mothers the opportunity to work their way out of poverty – and toward economic self-sufficiency – through income-producing small businesses. Parents use this sustainable income to serve more complete meals,send more children to school, purchase more needed medical care, and provide safer, more comfortable homes.
This Father’s Day we invite you to join us in this effort and help an East African father break the cycle that locks his family into grinding poverty. Give a gift to Village Enterprise in honor of your dad, and download a nice card from our website.
