At Challenges Worldwide, we are committed to getting people out of poverty – and we believe that business is a powerful way to achieve this.
We believe that by developing a vibrant local economy we can help alleviate poverty and bring a lasting positive impact to communities in low and middle income countries.
As a pioneering not-for-profit organisation, our focus is building the capacity of entrepreneurs and enterprises to grow businesses that generate income, employment and sustainable economic growth. We strengthen small businesses by identifying opportunities for development and assisting with the implementation of viable business plans.
We partner with international and local organisations to deliver projects in the most effective and efficient way. We invest time, energy and professional skills to unlock the potential for impact across agriculture, renewable energy access, health, education, housing, IT and financial services.
In addition to our own expertise, we have built a global network of exceptional professional volunteers who have in-depth experience of business development. We match the skills of our volunteers to the specific needs of local organisations, building relationships that have helped over a thousand organisations to grow.
