Challenges Worldwide ICS
The Challenges Worldwide ICS Programme offers young people the opportunity to play a key role in delivering sustainable development projects. Our volunteers deliver support to growing enterprises in Ghana, Uganda, and Zambia to ensure that everyone can earn a decent living.
We believes that building a strong economy is the most effective and sustainable way to addressing poverty. We support business growth in a range of small to medium sized enterprises. This has a direct impact on down suppliers such as small-scale farmers and women-owned cottage industries who are dependent upon outlets for their goods. This pro-poor company growth also creates employment and a secure income for individuals living in the urban area. Earning your own income is the first step towards reducing reliance on external aid and more sustainable development.

Our programme is funded by the UK Government, so you don’t need cash to take part!
