Impact How our work affects people and enterprises
Since 2014 we have been focusing our work on Sub-Saharan Africa. With funding from the UK Government, we are working with young people and small to medium sized enterprises (SMEs) across Ghana, Uganda, Rwanda and Zambia to help people learn the skills that are needed to improve and grow local businesses and create sustainable economies that promote prosperity for all.
Below you can see data from our portfolio of over 400 enterprises across Sub-Saharan Africa.
