Business Start Ups for Our Partners
At the core of Compassion Corps' work and mission, are the partnerships we maintain with indigenous leaders in the countries where we work. These individuals provide the insight, communication and accountability we need to be able to operate effectively in places we only visit ourselves once or twice per year. They are the ones with boots on the ground and they work hard (usually on a volunteer basis) to serve their communities. With the assistance of some upfront capital, our partners will be able to start businesses and generate sustainable income for their own families, allowing them to be freed up to manage and grow the Compassion Corps’ projects they oversee.
CURRENT Project Update
John got his taxi at the beginning of 2017 and the team that went to Liberia in August was able to see it in action. John reports that the business is going well and that he has some regular customers. Sam & Cecilia were provided with the funds for their provisions store and the construction has just finished up. Soon it will be stocked and ready to open. Funds were sent to the coffee farmers in Kasase, Uganda, for the motor for the coffee mill. They have built a shelter to protect the mill and are excited that they will not have to travel and pay other people to get their coffee milled. The last project is the one we hope to complete soon and that is help for the vocational school that Lucy will start at her school to give teach the children important skills in computers, poultry farming, and tailoring.
John's Taxi Business:
The purchase of a vehicle for John will help him get a taxi business up and running. With regular income, he can better serve in his capacity as Liberia Country Director.
Sam & Cecilia's Store:
We're helping to build and stock Sam & Cecilia's store. They'll use a percentage of their profits to provide Compassion Corps' sponsored students with job training.
Lucy's Vocational Program:
This program would teach students computer, tailoring, & poultry farming skills. As students learn, they will be able to help fill practical needs for the school community.
Coffee Farmers' Cooperative:
Having their own, local processing plant will save time & money. Increased earnings will allow more parents to pay school fees, benefiting both the families and the school.
