“We believe helping someone to build a strong business is a sustainable and respectful way to fight poverty.”
Believing business breaks barriers
Everyone deserves the chance to provide for themselves and their families.
Shared Interest Foundation aims to reduce poverty and improve livelihoods through the development of sustainable businesses across Africa and Latin America. We work with community groups to establish income generating enterprises and support co-operatives to increase their business resilience and sustainability.
Working in partnership with local organisations, we implement projects that aim to:
- Strengthen the resilience and sustainability of co-operatives, which support thousands of farmers and artisans.
- Increase the business and agricultural skills of producers and artisans to improve the quality and quantity of their product and increase their resilience to climate change.
- Support the development of sustainable income generating enterprises to improve livelihoods and contribute towards a reduction in poverty with a focus on empowering women and youth.
