Giving power to the people of Tabiro, Uganda by building business capacity and financing opportunities

One of the best ways to empower people is to give them the ability to empower themselves. You can invoke the classic “give a man a fish, he feeds himself for a day, teach a man to fish and he can feed himself forever” mantra.

That’s what I’m trying to do in Tabiro. Working with a Halifax based non-profit, I’ll be heading to Africa in April and will be bring my MBA experience with me. On the ground for two weeks, my team and I will be working with the microfinance manager in the village, to build a better support system for small businesses and give learning workshops to entrepreneurs.

This is all part of our Make a Difference Project at the Dalhousie University MBA program. Our instructions were simple, go out and make a difference, and we’ve gone all-in. Our NGO partner is one year into their donation-based microfinance venture and is actively looking for assistance in making it better.

What’s awesome for us is that we have just the skill set they are looking for, and can truly make a difference - empowering people through the business education we’ve received.

At the end of the day, your support is going towards empowering small business in rural Uganda. Our work will empower the people there to bring themselves out of poverty, improve their quality of life and build a stronger local economy.

Donating even 1% of my goal would be a huge help. Your support goes directly towards getting there and meeting small businesses. Additionally, your support will allow our team to bring teaching supplies and business support materials to be given to entrepreneurs.

Thank you for your support, and your support for Making a Difference!

Please feel free to share this link, it would be a huge help.
