What this gift will do

It’s hard to climb out of poverty alone. Tearfund and our partners encourage the formation of self-help groups where group members pool their savings to enable them to start businesses and advocate for resources from government and financial institutions. Your gift funds training in financial literacy, budgeting and planning as well as support services for the group.
